There are a number of roads that we do not allow our vehicles on. Please refer to section 4.4 of our Terms and Conditions.

Bargain Car Rentals vehicles are allowed into all national parks provided the roads are not closed due to weather or roads are poorly formed or washed out. Care should be taken when traveling on unsealed roads.

Customers can choose to use or apply their own Linkt account, please refer to Linkt’s website for more information. Customers will need to utilise an e-tag for the vehicle to be recognised by Linkt and charged to your account accordingly.

Don’t have a Linkt account? We take care of this for you! Tolls are processed using Licence Plate Recognition and are automatically added to your booking. We aim to process payments for tolls as soon as possible, however, this can still occur up to 6 weeks after you have returned your vehicle. There is a $3 administration fee for each toll that is processed in addition to the cost of the toll.

Parking and speeding fines are the responsibility of the customer. If you receive a parking ticket we recommend you pay this before the due date. A $75 administration fee will be incurred for any infringement that requires reissuing fines into the driver’s name.
