When visiting Australia’s major cities you may find the need to rent a car in order to explore this country at your own leisurely pace.
From humble beginnings, starting as a small side business at a gas station in Sydney, Redspot Car Rentals has grown to be recognised throughout the world as an innovator and leader in the Australian auto rental industry. Redspot took off in 1989 with a fleet of just two courtesy cars; a Holden Ute and a Laser and a team of one, Dan Mekler, Managing Director of Redspot. Dan being the entrepreneur that he is, started to experiment with Sydney City hotel delivery, soon discovering a large gap in the availability of car rentals on the weekends. With great persistence, and the forging of forever lasting business relationships, Dan grew Redspot from being a small side business to becoming a national network of rental operations.
In 1999, Redspot tendered for an on-airport licence at Sydney Airport, and won. They then faced a much bigger more demanding challenge against the big multinational companies like Hertz and Avis on their own turf. With this first important win, Redspot was able to grow its on-airport presence around the country, and by 2004 opened another four on-airport locations at Gold Coast, Cairns, Launceston, and Perth. Another three years later, Redspot opened Brisbane, Hobart, Mackay, and Adelaide airports.
In 2005 Redspot realised the need for a ‘fair go’ car rental offer, and introduced the Drive Away package. Drive Away is an all inclusive rate with $0 damage excess, the first of its kind in the Australian car rental world, and is still highly accepted by the public.
With its evolving business strategy, Redspot is becoming more relevant to the corporate market whilst retaining and keeping its promise to serving its traditional leisure base.
Redspot offers a wide range of added extras for travellers including:
- Business Club for frequent renters
- Club Red for priority fast service
- An extensive choice of locations
- Relocation rental options
- Toll gate payments options
- Global Positioning Systems
At Redspot they take loving care of their fleet. Each car is regularly safety checked, reliable, and looks great. Their rental fleet vehicles have an average age of six months young.
Most car rental companies promise an all inclusive rate, but at Redspot they really mean it.
