    Exotic, performance, classic and sports car rental in Sydney

    In case anyone is looking to hire a self drive sports, performance, prestige, classic or exotic car rental car in Sydney, I did a fair bit of research on it. Choosing a reputable company is not as straightforward as it should be; There are a few pitfalls. You only need to check out here, here or here to see how some people's dreams turned into a nightmare.

    Why is researching these rentals firms so tricky?:
    • Web searches (such as Google: "Sports car rentals Sydney") return results for many affiliates. This means lots of different looking websites may ultimately be offering the same car by one company.
    • Some business use multiple business entities and websites, which fill up search engine results and make it look like they're in competition with each other, when in fact they are not.
    • Some businesses keep changing their names, so the casual prospective customer cannot easily investigate their previous reputation.

    So what's on this post?
    • A list of most of the main 'real' companies offering self drive sports, performance, prestige, classic and exotic car hire in Sydney **most** of whom have good reputations.

    so james, does the research you have done make u lean more or less away from pursuing your goal of opening a car rental business. considering there are already so many options atm.

    Hi Jason,
    Sorry for not replying sooner...
    The answer is that I'm neither more, nor less inclined. There's a huge number of considerations to balance for and against (personal and business).
    Do I have a compelling business model for this?, (and hence business plan)? I'm undecided - I'm still testing it out.

    Just as a snapshot of my thought process:
    - Will I have decent cash flow and make a decent profit? Maybe, if my assumptions are good and I execute well.
    - Will I have fun? Yes - I think so, although I know it'll be stressful.
    - Will I learn a lot (that I can use in establishing and running future businesses)? Certainly

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm not being hasty to either kill off the idea, and neither am I devoting lots of time and capital to setup the business until I'm convinced it can work.

    I googled 'Sydney Sports Car Rentals' and what I found was absolutely horrifying. I couldn't help but sit for an hour and read about those horror stories.

    That's exactly right. Important to note that most have pretty clean reputations though.

    I signed up just to say...I am one of the former victims of Dream Drives Sydney (formerly Sydney Sports Car Rentals)

    There is now a site collecting the stories: http://dreamdrivessydneyscam.weebly.com/

    I also know of someone else who is currently taking them to court over some money not returned...

    Haven't experienced the other companies in the list but I can say for sure to stay well away from Dream Drives Sydney

    Feel free to share with anyone you know thinking of renting a sports car / supercar...

    With the help of online car rental services we can easily travel from one place to another if we are from outside the country. They provide the best services.
