Be sure to always obey the speed limits, while in cities or towns the limits will be between 40 - 60 kilometres per hour and on country roads and highways, 100 - 110 kilometres per hour. One of the most important thing to remember while driving around is, is an animal crosses in front of you reduce speed safely - do not swerve wildly to avoid it. It is important that while you are traveling from natural attractions to the adrenalin pumping experiences you adhere to the rules and laws of the road.

Many of our locations are unable to obtain insurance for under 21 year old drivers who are therefore required, prior to the start of the rental, to present an original Insurance Certificate of Currency - not a cover note - that indemnifies the replacement value of Budget's vehicle and third party property damage up to $20 million for any one occurrence. The certificate must be issued by a reputable insurer (as opposed to a broker) and is accepted at the discretion of the prospective location with which arrangements should be made directly.
