Who can hire and drive our vehicles and what licence do I need?

All drivers must be over 25 and under 75, and hold a full, unrestricted licence. If you are required to carry a medical certificate to drive, this must be presented at time of hire. We accept State, Overseas and International licences. Even our 3 tonne Pantec trucks can be driven on a car licence!

What about additional drivers?

There is no extra charge for extra drivers but we do require licence details for all drivers. Please note that anyone who drives any of our vehicles must sign the contract in person. This is particularly important for our Pantec trucks as we must instruct all drivers on how to safely operate the vehicle.

What about insurance?

We have 2 options for Insurance excess coverage with our vehicles. You can choose to take coverage with a lower excess of $500.00* for a small fee per day or choose to keep the basic coverage which can see you liable for up to $3000* damage. Without choosing to reduce your insurance excess liability we must take a fully refundable security bond of $2500 bond for cars and $3000 for trucks. With excess reduction taken we only require a $250.00 security bond.

Items not covered by insurance or your damage waiver includes but is not limited to:

  • Damaged tyres or missing items (i.e. hubcaps, isolator keys, etc.)
  • Under body damage
  • Damage above cabin height on trucks and caged utes

All our vehicles are covered by 24 hour RACQ roadside assistance (call-out fees may apply).

*Maximum excess for cars is $2500.00, and for Trucks $3000.00.

Is a bond/deposit required?

How do I pay for my hire?

The full cost of your hire plus any bond must be paid on credit when you pick up your hire vehicle. Unfortunately we can't accept any other method of payment.

The cost of any extra charges (eg. tolls, extra kilometres, etc.) may be able to be paid by other methods. Please check with our staff if you have any queries about payment.

How many kilometres do I get with my hire?

All vehicles have a free kilometre limit included in the hire rate. Excess kilometres are charged at a standard rate.

Cars: limit is 200km/day, $0.22 per excess kilometre

Utes: limit is 150km/day, $0.22 per excess kilometre

Trucks: limit is 100km/day, $0.25 per excess kilometre

What if I return my hire vehicle early?

Returning a hired vehicle early may incur a penalty of that day's hire. The daily rate on any discounted or special hires may be recalculated at standard hire rates. Any refunds given will be at the discretion of Betta Car & Ute Hire.

Where can I take my hire vehicle?

The rental area for our vehicles is limited to the South-East Queensland tourist areas. These include the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Toowoomba areas, or any other area within 300km of the Brisbane City Centre. With prior approval, executive vehicles, tourist vehicles, and people-movers ONLY may be used outside the 300km area. Vehicles are restricted to sealed roads only. Vehicles must not be submerged in water or come in contact with salt water. Driving at night in country areas is strongly discouraged to avoid animal damage.

Our vehicles are the preferred hire vehicles to use on North Stradbroke Island, and unlike other hire companies you are covered for insurance on the vehicle ferry to the island.

Do you have any vehicles with tow bars?

We have particular utes and vans with tow balls. Please request this to staff at time of booking as not all our vehicles have them.

What about fuel?

All vehicles are supplied with a full tank of fuel. The vehicles must either be returned with a full tank of fuel or the renter will be charged $2.00 per litre. All fuel costs are the hirer's responsibility, and you must return the vehicle with a fuel reciept.

Can I also rent moving equipment, GPS's, etc. from you?

Upon request we can supply you with:

  • Trolleys
  • Blankets
  • Ropes
  • Navman GPS
  • Maps
  • Street directories
  • Baby seats
