The cheap way to have a car in Sydney

Hello everyone: I just wanted to share a great experience I made with a car rental company in Sydney. Just recently I have moved from Europe to Sydney as I enrolled for Masterís course at Macquarie Uni in North Ryde. I am absolutely amazed by Sydney and the Australian system of education. Itís great fun to study here and a unique experience to be part of that intercultural melting pot. There was only one downside of that coin which has made my life a bit complicated: Living in Bondi and studying in North Ryde. Every day I have to spend nearly 3 hours in buses and trains in order to commute from A to B and back. So I started looking for a cheap way to get around. Buying a car was not an option due to my short stay and student budget. I was thrilled when I found the exciting offer of a SmartCar rental company and I kind of liked the idea of crucing along Sydney roads with that cute little car. Itís big fun, very economic and the best: no parking hassles at all. The Smartpilots offer car-rentals for $189 per week - unbelievable! How good it that? I figured out that this was the lowest car rental price in Sydney. Their pick-up depots are conveniently located in the heart of Sydneyís CBD. Check this out and off you go. www.smartpilots.com.au Cheers, Claudi
