Sorry if this has been asked before (I couldn't find it) but is there any car hire companies who rent out older, cheaper cars? I have a house-sit in the Tamar Valley over Easter (lucky me) but won't have access to a car. Now, I don't want to miss out on exploring this beautiful region for the 9 days I'm there, but 9 days car hire with the mainstream car rental companies works out to quite a hefty sum. Given that I'm not going to be using it every day, it seems a waste to have a $40 a day car sitting around doing nothing.
Any suggestions would be grateful.
