Airport Surcharge / Airport Recovery Fees

Many Airports around Australia charge what is known as an "Airport or Premium Location Fee". This fee is passed on to the consumer by the suppliers as they in turn are charged for having on airport facilities. These fees are included in the Total Cost.

Airport Recovery Fee's vary between locations and companies..

Tips to avoid paying airport recovery fees

In some cases you can avoid these excess fees by choosing to pick up your car from depots not on airport grounds (off-airport locations). In most instances savings can be made. You can still return your vehicle to Airport locations without incurring the Airport or Premium Location Fee although some suppliers do charge a Premium Location Fee for some City locations but considerably less than Airport Location Fees. All of our suppliers have off-airport locations in all capital cities.
