Many airports around Australia charge what is known as an Airport or Premium Location Fee. This is a percentage-based fee levied on the car rental providers by federal airports and on depots within a city’s central business district. Furthermore, this fee will also be added to any extras you decide to take out when collecting the car.
Where permitted, these fees may apply to rental cars at airport locations and selected off-airport locations. The fee included in your reservation will vary depending on where you collect from. Remember that rates for airport vehicles are generally higher due to the Aviation Authority charging the car rental providers.
