ACCIDENTS If you’re involved in an accident, first remain as calm as possible and ensure that you remove yourself from any potential danger. Gather the contact details (names, addresses, registration numbers) of all involved parties and if necessary contact the police and emergency services. Also, call the depot where you collected the vehicle to report the accident within 24 hours of the incident.
If your rental vehicle is not driveable, ensure that it’s left in a safe place before leaving the scene.
MINIMUM RENTAL 7 days when travelling to Cape York. Minimum 5 days hire allowed for travel as far north as Cooktown or peak season.
KILOMETRE ALLOWANCE 200 km per day is included in the rental cost. If you travel over 200 km per day, the extra charge is $0.40 cents for every km over. The distance from Cairns to the tip of Cape York is approximately 2,000 km return so we suggest a minimum hire of 10 days to make that trip comfortably which will give you 2,000 km included in your hire.
TYRE & WINDSCREEN DAMAGE The renter will be responsible for tyre and windscreen damage.
CLEANING FEE ON RETURN OF VEHICLE A cleaning fee may be charged if the vehicle is not returned in reasonable condition. Charging of such a fee will be at the depot manager’s discretion.
ROAD RESTRICTIONS These vehicles go from Cairns to Cape York on a regular basis and visit all the “Must See” tourist places on the way. The vehicles can be driven on recognized unsealed roads as long as the weather at the time is suitable for such a trip and this is why the vehicles can only be taken from Cairns to Cape York during the months of June to October. Some sections of roads like “The Old Telegraph Track” (different from The Telegraph Road which leads you to Cape York) and Creb Track are not allowed to be accessed due to the harshness of the roads but places like Fruit Bat/Elliot/Twin waterfalls, The Telegraph Road, the Peninsula Development Road and the Bamaga Road (also known in sections as the Southern and Northern Bypass road) are all well taken care of and allowable for you to travel on. The Roads that these vehicles are allowed on will lead you from Cairns to the very tip of Cape York – Australia where you can fish, catch ferries to the islands of the Torres Straits and stand at the sign saying you are at the very top of Australia. Please consult a good map provider for road names and details like the “Hema Map” company.
