Are you adventure-ready? Tour Australia in our Compact SUV

We’re all about choice at JUCY. We think choosing your car rental is like pairing a glass of great wine with a delectable meal. Instead of the lamb with the Bordeaux, we want to help you match your road trip style and car type!

If we think about it, our Compact SUV is kinda like a fine wine – its fuel-efficient yet sporty engine and sleek design could be described as “full-bodied, with great texture and a fabulous finish”. And with a decent-sized boot, it’s got plenty of ullage (that’s the empty space in a barrel after the wine evaporates). Ahem. We’ll stop now.

Our Compact SUV car rental is a brilliant motor to explore Australia in. It can handle rougher terrain (hello, Outback), steep hills (rainforest drive, anyone?), and a range of weather conditions. Yep, even the snow if you want to get a good ski sesh in the Snowy Mountains (don’t forget to order your snow chains!).

It’s also a dream to drive on windy mountain roads when the Electronic Stability Programme kicks in to ensure you stay in control, no matter the conditions. You’ll also enjoy a ton of other safety features, too. All while driving the most stylish car rental vehicle on fleet! Win, win, really!

Where to go in your fabulous Compact SUV Car Rental?

In a motor as stylish and road capable as this one, you’ll want to experience all its features. Enjoy the way it handles curves on a hinterland route? Test its mettle in the outback? Drive past beaches so perfect you need to pinch yourself? We’ve picked our go-to car rental itineraries to help you choose what kind of roadie you’d like to ‘test drive’ our Compact SUV on!

An Outback Odyssey

If there's one type of Aussie road trip our Compact SUV is made for, it's an outlandish outback odyssey! Hit cruise control as you stir the dust down those famed outback orange roads. Blast your top road trip tunes from the Bluetooth stereo system. Enjoy the safety and grunt of the electronic stability programme. These perfect car rental features, and the many others listed above (click the Features tab), make our Compact SUV as ready for an outback roadie as Tom Hanks was ready to be a grown-up in Big.

Of course, you can head into the outback from any of our car rental branches, but our fave itinerary kicks off from our Brisbane Airport branch. Choose to witness an awe-inspiring sunrise from Tabletop Mountain. Learn fables and astrology in Charleville, or perhaps set up your tent at Carnarvon Gorge. This and so, so much more is available on this 7-day outback itinerary. Keen to find out more? Click here. (Psst, although this itinerary is for our campervans, chuck a swag in the back of your Compact SUV car rental instead: perfect for outback stargazing!)

Well, Well, Wellness from the Gold Coast

The great thing about exploring the Gold Coast is that everything is pretty close. Even incredible national parks and near-empty gorgeous squeaky-sand beaches! The even better thing? Zipping between all the hot spots in our glam Compact SUV. Pick up your JUCY rental car from our Gold Coast Airport branch, which is moments away from one of said beaut beaches!

The Gold Coast isn’t just about theme parks and Schoolies. In fact, it’s quite the opposite if you know where to look because the Gold Coast has some serious wellness vibes. Hike the Gold hinterland, experience beachside yoga, take a soak in restorative hot pools or nip across the border to Byron for an indigenous tour that lifts the soul. Discover these experiences and more in our Gold Coast wellness blog.

Explore the Grampians in Style

After collecting your Compact SUV car rental from our Melbourne City or Melbourne Airport branch, head to western Victoria to explore the Grampians. In an area far bigger than you'd imagine, you get to connect to Aboriginal rock art heritage, see incredible vistas, and stand in awe at waterfalls galore.

Across the Grampians region, enjoy hikes from the too-easy to the too-hard-to-talk and sample delectable eats and treats across the region. Do not miss bakery treats in Dunkeld – they've been baking tasty morsels since 1887! Plus, discover the delights of the Grampians National Park – bush, wildlife, and jaw-dropping vistas. Oh, and stargazing, too!

Sound like a car rental trip you’d like to take? Cool! Read our full Grampians itinerary here.

Slow Travel Roadie from Melbourne to Sydney

How many times have you flown between Melbourne and Sydney, never giving a thought to the attractions, sights, and magic going on down below? Too many! Here’s an idea: why not take a Melbourne to Sydney car rental roadie instead?

Behind the wheel of our stylish Compact SUV (or any of our rental car or campervan fleet, tbh, we won't hold you back), you can uncover the treasures, time-honoured traditions, and secrets that line this 1380-kilometre Melbourne to Sydney route. Craggy cliffs, expansive beaches, and native wildlife galore. Plus, fascinating coastal towns that charm like a little kid asking their grandma for a sweet treat. Our fave stop?

Sunny Side Up: Brisvegas to the Sunny Coast

Looking for warmer temps for your upcoming road trip? How about a Brisbane to Noosa road trip to up your Vitamin D levels and give the winter weather the cold shoulder?

Hit up the fabulous marine park around Bribie Island, take an uphill investigation of the iconic Glasshouse Mountains, and discover the myriad of reasons why Noosa is on everyone’s holiday travel list. Be warned, we take no responsibility for encouraging you to visit Noosa; you may never want to come home!

You Can Have it All in Cairns

Been looking to take a road trip but don’t love the constant packing and repacking? No problems! Base yourself in Cairns and take our five perfect car rental day trips instead! Pick up your Compact SUV hire at our convenient Cairns branch.

Of course, the Great Barrier Reef is a no-brainer. Add to this a trip to the lush landscape of Barron Gorge National Park, the ancient wonders of the Daintree Rainforest, and the Atherton Tablelands, where if you haven’t added an inch to your waistline, you’ve done it wrong. Plus, a do-not-miss side trip to Mission Beach for landscape and cassowary action! The latter is once-in-a-lifetime-y, for reals!

Straight Outta Sydney

Oooh, we love Sydney day trips. Or putting Sydney day trips into a big trip, whizzing around the best of the city and its surrounds! You can pick up your car rental from our Sydney Airport branch. It's not only convenient in location, but we offer a free airport shuttle if you’re collecting within our branch opening hours. Sweet.

Once you’re in your Compact SUV, you choose what tickles your fancy! How about heading north to see the sand dunes in Port Stephens, or getting cultural in Newcastle? Or maybe an iconic roadie to the Blue Mountains. The views are surreal at every vista it seems! We also share our fave coastal spots in Wollongong and its surrounds. Curious? Read more about our Sydney car rental day trips here.

These car rental road trip ideas whet your appetite for adventure? Oops, sorry, not sorry! We’re like a door-to-door knocker, pushing Australia the way one of those charity sales reps tries to get your sponsorship dollars. Only we’re selling something you actually want: a raucously good car rental road trip!
