Thanks!

Unless I miss read it when I first saw the site a few months ago they have upped there age limit to 30.
Rules out a young wipper snapper like me!

I had a look at the 'rent my car' ads, there is a 360 also, awesome deal at $130 a day. But it also has 30 age min and a 14 day min hire period.

The dreamcarrentals guys probably weren't operating with real insurance before and have upgraded. So it's the insurance company that has demanded 30yrs and up. Also their price has skyrocketed and not too many km's before you hit their limits and start paying extra. If youre really kean and happy to spend the money give them a call because im guessing the insurance company allows for 25 and up if a staff member is in the car with you.

Prancing Horse in Sydney is 30 and up.. Im guessing they have real insurance as well now if James has been a busy man.

I heard they were close to folding not too long back, he's probably what they needed to prop them up, hope he does well.

I still don't understand drivemycarrentals.

Why would someone lend out their 2004 Gallardo $190-$220k value to some stranger for $1000/week??? Clutches and general ware and maintenance don't just grow on trees...

The concept doesn't make sense, not for high end cars anyway...

I can understand how traditional rental companies can do it but a private guy putting his personal car up for rent, unlimited km's?????

I know this isn't the companies problem but the concept is a bit wacky... Hope your friend does alright with it though
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

Itís pretty unfair to sit behind the wheel of the Porsche 911 just after staggering out of the Ferrari F430. Itís like sharing a beer with your Nan after going on a date with Jennifer Hawkins (donít worry, Nan is slowly cutting down on the grog).

The Porsche is OK, but thatís just it ... itís only OK.

Had to note that before FF got in...... i'd settle for the date with Jen Hawkins  :faint:

Whether it be for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or just a weekend away with someone special, they have the car for you. You want performance? You want style?

If you are a visitor to this wonderful city of Melbourne or if your own car is off the road, or perhaps you would like to try before you buy, why not pay that little bit extra and get a whole lot more! Supercarrentals is the only car rental company in Australia where you can enjoy the pinnacle of Australian V8 or turbo performance motoring.
