Transfercar is now in its 5th year of running an online vehicle relocation service that enables rental car companies to drastically reduce costs in transportation services, while offering a way for travelers to travel for free. Our business model offers a real win-win-win scenario, where the drivers get to drive a car for free, Transfercar gets paid for providing a driver, and the rental car companies save on relocation costs.
If you are a traveller like me and plan to continue traipsing around the world in your free rentals, then you are likely to have loads of little reminders of your journeys. Little things such as tickets to shows, a bus pass or an entry to visit some iconic artifact or concert line your travel bags, draws or hand bag well after the journey is complete.

When tourists think of Australia, they tend to focus on the urban delights of Sydney and its famous opera house or the wild spaces of the Outback or the Great Barrier Reef. However, there are plenty of other interesting and trendy Antipodean locations which are worth a visit, including the regional cities.
