Hi shsh,

From memory, most car companies in Darwin had unlimited kilometres.

Check out Avis, Budget, Thrifty and Eurocar for a start;

Tourism Top End can arrange car rental with unlimited kms. I tried to book directly with Thrifty etc but they will only do cars with 100km per day. Tourism Top End deals with several companies - Thrifty, Avis etc and a few local companies.

Booking through a 3rd party site such as www.rentalcars.com also provides you with unlimited km and insurance and uses the main companies. The only issue with this one is that they only seem to accept bookings during normal business hours.

I have your same dilemma. I found the prices very high to rent going out of and back into DRW. The in town locations aren't 24 hour like they are at the airport, but I did find a good price at Hertz (188 AU) for 4 days, pick up in town and return at the airport. For some reason the in town pickup gives the unlimited km, the only drawback is it doesn't open until 8 am so we can't get an early start.

We are spending our first night in Darwin because we'll be tired, at the Doubletree Esplanade, then it looks like about a 1km walk dragging our luggage to the Hertz office at the Mitchell Centre.

I have looked and looked and the unlimited km out of the airport is double the price!

Why not leave the luggage at your hotel, then go back with the rental car to pick it up?

There seems to be a very high airport tax for rental cars at Darwin, which is one of the main reasons picking up in town is so much cheaper. I did this on my recent Top End trip (we used a taxi directly from the airport to the Thrifty office, as it was during the day when they were open).
