Redspot Car Rentals are one of the very few Australian rental car companies that are able to hire to drivers under the age of 25 as well as drivers holding an Australian Provisional Drivers Licence.
The minimum age is 21 and you must have held your Australian provisional licence for a minimum of 1 year from time of rental pick up. Note that drivers younger than 25 are required to pay a Young Driver daily fee. See our Standard Fees and Charges for more information.
If you are also a Australian provisional drivers licence holder, you will be required to pay a Provisional Licence fee. See our Standard Fees and Charges for more information.
Tips for first time renters
Most car rental agencies have an age requirement to rent a car. At Redspot, you have to be at least 21 years of age to rent a car. If this your first time renting a car, use these handy tips to make the most of your rental.
RESERVE A CAR TYPE YOU’RE ACCUSTOMED TO DRIVING.
You’ll feel more comfortable driving a vehicle that’s similar to your own.
RESEARCH YOUR INSURANCE OPTIONS.
Before you pick up your car, know what coverage options you have and the options you can elect to reduced your financial burden if you are involved in accident.
RESERVE IN ADVANCE.
The best way to get the car you want for your trip is to reserve before you arrive at the rental counter.
BRING YOUR ID AND CREDIT CARD TO PICK UP YOUR RENTAL.
You only need a few things to pick up your rental car: a valid driver’s license and a credit card in your name.
DESIGNATE A DRIVER.
If you’re traveling with a group, choose one person to be the driver the entire trip. Additional drivers must pay to operate the vehicle. See our Standard Fees and Charges for more information.
PURCHASE A TOLL PASS WAIVER.
You can get around with the peace of mind if you pay a single daily fee to purchase a toll waiver, rather than paying multiple fees on your credit card. And you may save cost too. See our Standard Fees and Charges for more information.
KEEP THE CAR CLEAN.
Any cars that are returned really dirty get charged a cleaning fee. You can avoid this easily by having a designated trash bag, not eating in the vehicle, and quickly cleaning up before you return the car.
DON’T SMOKE INSIDE.
Redspot has a smoke-free fleet, so you shouldn’t smoke or vape in or near your rental. You could be charged a significant cleaning fee if the vehicle has a smoke smell when you return it.
OPT FOR PRE-PAID FUEL.
Skip the hassle of filling up your rental car with gas before you bring it back. The rental location can fill it up for you at a gas price comparable to local rates. Enquire on collection the prices of the day.
