Default Lease car in Sydney

Hello.
We are looking to rent a car for around a month when we first arrive in Sydney, can anyone recommend a good priced Company.
Also I have leased a car at Home for the last month as I have sold my car, this works out really economical, does anyone know if anything similar is offered in Sydney as we may look to lease a car for a year say instead of buying
can anyone help?
many thanks
Nicki.

you could try this company, I've used them myself and there cheap compared to the rest in Sydney. (highest insurance rates in oz) I'm not sure about lease so can't comment.

Ahhhh yes but over a period of one month = 3100km
and they will let you select the cheapest option when you return the car. very good deal if you shop around which I have done (part scot)

Remember that if your returning the car you can effectivly only travel 1550km (return trip). This will get you to melbourne and back with a few side trips.

You can always remove the fuse from the Speedo circuit on long trips. I wouln't
recommend doing this of course!

Try a company named Delta. I believe they have offices in all the
major cities. I got a new car with auto tranny from them 3 years ago
for a 3 week trip. The total cost was about AU$800 for the entire
time. I put about 5000K (Melbourne to Brisbane and back) on it during
that time without any mileage charges.
