o Tips to Avoid Car Hire Cleaning fees
▪ Empty the car the day before returning so you can clean any obvious marks / soil
/ sand etc
▪ Sweep or shake out any sand , dirt or grass from footwells and boot where
possible – vacuum if possible
▪ Don’t park under trees if possible (leaf matter stains and bird excrement)
▪ Wipe with clean sponge and water any obvious dirt / bird excrement marks from
bodywork / windows, be careful not to scratch paintwork. If in doubt just rinse
with water and point out the stain to APV staff on return so it can be
professionally treated. If you have used best measures to rinse stains off body
work then this will viewed favorably by APV staff and minimize cleaning fees (or
most cases may in fact be waivered)
▪ Remove as much sand from beach or dirt from shoes as possible before getting
in carDo not eat or drink in the car
▪ Have the car hand car washed before returning / roadside car wash
o Can I put a rental car through a car wash?
▪ Yes you can If the vehicle gets excessively dirty however any damage caused
would be your responsibility. If you do need to get the car washed before you
return it, we’d recommend a road side hand car wash, a quick shampoo and
vacuum should be more than enough, no need for a full car detail. This will likely
cost less than $20.00 and be significantly cheaper than the rental agreement
cleaning fees.
o What If I Return my rental car dirty?
If the car is considered excessively dirty, either inside or out you’ll likely find
yourself on the receiving end of a cleaning fee. Whilst this can sometimes be
subjective we have provided guidelines of what we consider acceptable or
excessive states of cleanliness. We recommend you take photos of the car inside
and out for reference and resolve any issues at the time of return with one of our
staff so there is no dispute later on.
Australian Prestige Vehicles has the authority
and the right at any time it sees fit or reasonable to change or modify all or any part of
