Had a great experience here! Chris picked me up from my accomodation, set up everything and made the entire hiring process super easy! The car was brand new, and a pleasure to drive. Definitely the best car rental company we’ve had so far in Cairns!

We rented a car for 24 hours with Tropical North Car Rentals. They were so easy to deal with. Collected us from our accommodation and took us to their office to sign the paperwork. At the end of the rental dropped us to the airport. Super friendly staff. Definitely recommend.

Very friendly people. Someone picked us up from our hotel and took us to the office where we picked up our clean new car for 2 days at a very reasonable price. On return to the office we were driven to wherever we wanted to go which in our case was the cruise terminal. Thoroughly recommend this car rental

Very straightforward and easy process. They went out of their way to make the whole process as comfortable as possible for us. They even picked us up at our place and dropped us off at the airport for no extra fee. And they offer the best value per money in town, when one drives more than 100km in a day.

Great value, easy pick up and a very friendly service. The near new car gave piece of mind compared to older cars with high mileage from other companies. Looking forward to our next trip with Tropical North Car Rentals next week.

After arriving in Cairns and finding out our rental car with another company wasn't available, spoke to Richard on the phone. We collected the car almost immediately, the whole process was easy. Lovely staff, brand new car, exceptional service. Highly recommend
