Renting a car is impossible if you're under 21.. During a holiday I tried to get my name put on as a secondary driver, I was 19.. None of the major franchises would have a bar of it..

hmmm... odd. I work for thrifty, but maybe it's due to franchising, coz I know we allow p-platers and young'ens for an additional fee.
Maybe you're out of luck?

Might be different franchises or just Thrifty, Avis seems to be cheaper for the Sat Nav equipped Commodores in Queensland than in NSW.

Strange thing was when I was up on the Sunshine Coast it was going to cost me $785 for a week (full insurance, excess reduction, etc) to pick up a car from Brisbane Airport to drive up or $620 for the same car pick up at Maroochydore Airport, weird...

Avis will rent to under 25's but you can only rent up to a mid-size car if you are under 25
