  • As a number of our cars are shared with other enthusiasts, their location may change within their metro area. We will provide additional time and/or kms if this is an inconvenience to you.
  • Day hire is from 8 am to 6 pm and includes 200 kms.
  • Mid-week specials apply for any hires on the Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, excluding public holidays.

  • Additional kms can be purchased in advance, in blocks of 50 kms, at half price.
  • Fully comprehensive insurance and roadside assistance is included in the hire fee. 
  • Breakdown/bad weather insurance is available at 15% of the hire fee. This will provide you with a full refund should your chosen car not be available due to mechanical or weather issues or should it break down and you are not able to complete your hire. See our breakdown policy here –
  • Important – On collecting the car, please ensure that you have sufficient funds on your credit card to cover the insurance excess you have chosen. We hold that amount against your card for the duration of the hire as a security deposit. If there are not sufficient funds, the hire cannot go ahead and no refund will be due. 

Please note that, as many of our owners work, the pick up time is strictly 8 am unless otherwise arranged in advance. If you arrive more than 20 minutes late there is no guarantee the car will be available and there will be no refund.

Optional Extras

  • Delivery or collection may be arranged (subject to owner’s agreement) at $6 per km each way. There is a minimum charge of $150 each way. For airport pick up and drop off the charge is $200 each way due to logistical constraints. (We prefer to do handovers in hotel locations where there are no time and space restrictions).
  • All our cars are also available with a driver – subject to availability. Contact us for more information. Note that there is no security deposit required where we supply the driver. 

Cancellation terms:

  • Hire fees, less $200, will be refunded if a booking is cancelled more than 7 days prior to the hire date.

Please Note:

  • Should bad weather be forecast we may defer your booking to a later date.
  • Should your chosen car not be available (due to mechanical breakdown, etc.) we will provide a substitute vehicle (if one is available) or an alternative date for your chosen vehicle.
  • Security deposits are required to cover the insurance excess, by credit or debit card for all cars and will be taken upon collection of the car.
  • Pick up time is strictly 8 am, unless a different time is agreed at time of booking. Most of our owners have day jobs so it is important that you arrive on time. If you arrive more than 20 minutes late we cannot guarantee the car will be available for you and no refund will be due.
  • Final approval of hirers is at the discretion of Vintage and Classic Car Hire and the owner of the car.
  • All drivers and the person providing the credit card for the security deposit must sign the hire agreement.
