The Melbourne to Sydney heritage drive is an unforgettable experience that everyone should at least have once in their lives. The drive is about 14 hours long, but you will have to make several stops along the way and dedicate time to visiting historical places, gold rush towns, breath-taking scenery, rivers, mountains, wineries, and so much more. If done thoroughly, this drive will last you a week, and if you are on a schedule, you can minimise it to four days. Either way, you will end up with amazing photos and awesome memories.

Since the new Apple Maps App was launched on the iPhone 5, it has come under fire from all quarters. Experts and even users have labelled the feature as ineffective, unreliable and faulty. One more adjective was added to the mix recently by the Australian police who called the app life-threatening. According to the police, the app has got the location of Mildura, a town in the Australian outback, wrong. They claim the app shows it at least 70km away from its actual location.

According to the leading car rental industry experts and our insider sources, the car rental rates will stay low in 2011 due to the increased car rental fleet.
2010 shortage of rental cars was caused by tightening lending conditions in the after-math of Global Financial Crisis. Car companies were forced to use its fleet longer than usual because they simply couldn’t buy more cars and some car manufacturers halted production in 2009/10.
Since then, the lending conditions have softened and all car rental companies have increased their fleet in 2010. There is certainly no shortage of supply and now most of the companies have more cars in their yards than they can rent out.
A good indication of where the prices are headed in 2011 is a number of generous promotions ran by major players – Hertz, Avis, Europcar, Budget and Thrifty.
Hertz is currently offering 2 days for free on its weekly rental, which is a good deal considering you would only pay around $40 for a small car.
Thrifty launched a special in metropolitan cities starting from just $35 per day. And if you’re a member of RACV you can take up to 20% of your car rental bill.
Europcar cut its prices by 10% on 3 day car rentals and 15% on 5 day car rentals.
Avis and Budget currently give-away double Qantas points on all rentals over 3 days, so if you’re a frequent flyer, you can still take advantage of this offer until 28 February 2011.
So, what are you waiting for? Go to a supplier of your choice and get a bargain car rental!

It was reported by Montreal Gazette that famous country singer Carrie Underwood said she won’t return to Montreal after her bad car rental experience. Her car got broken during her recent visit to Montreal. “We had to … call (the rental company) back and be like, ‘We’re sorry! The car is broken,’ ” the American Idol winner told Minneapolis radio station K102 Thursday, according to Us Weekly. She added: “So that was fun. I am not going back to Montreal.”
While no one can be protected from occasional problems with rental cars, we suggest renting the lowest kilometre vehicle of a reputable brand. Sometimes, it is worth paying extra couple $$$ for an upgrade, if rental agent promises to put you in a low kilometre rental car.
