C-HRKINTO has increased its fleet by 52% in the last three months with new hire car locations established across NSW, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia, and the number of cars boosted in popular holiday hotspots.

“It’s easier for holidaymakers to plan and budget when they know they’re getting consistent pricing and they can choose the specific vehicle that suits their needs,” he says.

“We are already seeing a surge of short-term rental bookings for busy holiday periods so we’re encouraging people to plan in advance,” says KINTO General Manager Mark Ramsay.

KINTO now has one of the widest offerings of short-term car rentals in Australia, with a range of new Toyota vehicles for hire for as little as an hour to as long as a year.

“We already have bookings until June next year in popular holiday locations like Cairns, the Gold Coast and Tasmania,” he says.

Recent research from travel site Wotif shows 44% of Australians are planning to travel within Australia for their 2022 holidays with Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane the most popular pick-up points for car hire in Queensland.

Tips to find an affordable hire car over the holidays:

  • Book early: Don’t rely on being able to get a last-minute deal.
  • Shop around: There can be huge differences in rates.
  • 18 new dealership locations have been established since July and 3 new street locations to service high-demand areas.

“If you’re thinking about hiring a vehicle for Christmas my advice would be to get in early.”

KINTO currently operates out of 79 dealers and 11 non-dealer locations across Australia with its fleet being expanded each month. Users pay a flat fee calculated on the hire length and a per kilometre fee based on the distance they travel, which includes insurance (subject to excess), roadside assistance and fuel.

We’re seeing a lot of interest in our larger vehicles around the holiday period. Car hire company KINTO has increased its fleet as it prepares for a surge of bookings from Australian holidaymakers.

KINTO hire cars are all booked through an app – the entire process is digital. Our most popular models this time of the year are Toyota RAV4s and Klugers – they’re popular with families and also large groups,” says Mr Ramsay.

I think travellers are drawn to KINTO because of our pricing model.

The KINTO fleet has also expanded in QLD to include a new location at the Rhapsody Resort in Surfers Paradise.

New locations include the Barossa Valley in South Australia, Launceston in Tasmania and Maitland in the NSW Hunter Valley.
Rent the right car: Make sure the car suits the conditions you’re driving to.

“KINTO users can also cancel their booking up until 2 hours beforehand without paying any cancellation fees,” he adds. Is the actual hire process easy or will you be waiting in long queues to rent your vehicle? From selecting the vehicle, submitting paperwork, collecting the car and driving away. We have the same fixed pricing structure consistent across the country and we don’t operate on demand-based pricing. If you’re covering long distances ensure you’re hiring a car that’s suitable.
