Why rent a compact car

Hiring a compact model has many advantages over a large SUV or sedan. First of all, compact cars are cheaper to run, with a typical compact car achieving twice the gas mileage of a large SUV. So you will not only save money on the daily hire rate but also fuel fill-ups.

Compact cars are also much easier to drive and park than larger cars. This is something to think about if you are not used to driving a large SUV type vehicle. Smaller cars can also be more fun to drive, which could make a welcome change from a large heavy family sedan.

Find your perfect compact car rental for your travel needs

Our compact cars are perfect for a range of journeys, from road trips across the continent to city driving and short business trips. Here’s how you can get the most out of your next trip by hiring a compact car.

  • Road trips – A road trip may not seem like the ideal scenario for a compact car, but if you’re travelling alone or as a couple, a compact car provides a great alternative to a heavy SUV or sedan. Today’s compact cars are comfortable to drive over long distances and are quite spacious, so long as there is just the two of you. And with rates starting at just $29 per day, you’ll save money compared to using a large SUV type vehicle.
  • City driving – City driving and compact cars go hand in hand, so if you’re visiting the city, why not hire a compact car to help you get around. Compact cars are both easy to drive and most models come fitted with parking sensors which makes them easy to park. Using a hire car is also much more convenient and comfortable than using public transport.
  • Business trips – If you’re in town on business, why not hire a compact car to help you get around. With rates starting at just $29 per day, compact car hire may also be more cost-effective than using taxis. Having access to own car is also more convenient and safer than using public transport.

Benefits of our compact car hire

Hiring a compact car for your next trip has many benefits compared to using public transport. Having access to a car gives you more freedom to visit the places you want to see. You won’t be restricted to visiting the places where the bus or train stops, allowing you to explore more remote and exciting destinations.

If you are in town on business, a hire car is much more convenient than using taxis or public transport. And because business travellers often carry brochures or product samples with them, using public transport or taxis is never going to be practical. Depending on your schedule, hiring a compact car may also prove to be more cost-effective.

At Alpha Car Hire, all our cars come complete with FREE 24 hour roadside assistance and FREE basic protection. This gives you peace of mind that you are covered should something go wrong. And to ensure you are kept safe on your journey, all our compact hire cars are fitted with ABS, Air Conditioning, Child Safety Locks and driver and passenger airbags.

So don’t let public transport ruin your next business or leisure trip. Hire a budget compact car from Alpha Car Hire and enjoy a more stress-free journey.
