Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Ararat?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Ararat. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Ararat trip can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty in Australia. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Ararat.
