Any Rent - a -Bomb Car Hire Companies in Launceston?

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.

Cheers,

Judi.

Wow that was a quick reply Luigi! I've already Googled as you suggested, but when I price them, they're all pretty much the same price as they are all late model cars.

I had hoped Launceston might have similar 'bombey' rentals like here on the Gold Coast - haven't heard of any? I don't need the latest model with all the mod cons, just something to get me from one winery to the next :-)
