Hey im travveling from sydney to brisbane on the 2nd jan, i dont have any plans yet, was thinking about hiring a car but wasnt sure if i can leave it in brisbane or do i need to return it bk to sydney? Ive also heard about crazy excess fees that i though are pretty worrying! Kinda dont wanna fly as i would like to see places on the way up like byron bay and surfers paradise! Please help :) thanks lesley

You could look into the hop on hop off bus tickets, or if you know where you might like to stay, book the first leg... e.g. Sydney to Port Macquarie and stay a few days... if you go there (for eg) you might even meet people that you could share the next leg of the journey with...

Excess fees can usually be minimised if you pay for a higher insurance package up front.

Beautiful coast between Sydney and Gold Coast!! Enjoy!!

Hey Lesley, are you travelling solo? I was thinking about doing the same thing as you, with renting the car and seeing everything, but it'd be nice to split the cost with someone. any chance you wanna travel partner?
