To get a compact rental car that keeps your petrol costs down, or makes it easy to navigate unfamiliar roads, a lot of the time you have to trade out some modern features. Not with JUCY.

Our Small Hatch is a very stylish (if we do say so ourselves) Fiat Punto that means you can have it all on your Aussie roadie. Features include A/C, power steering, and several ways you can blast a road trip anthem on the car stereo.  

Plus, Fiat Punto’s come with ESP. Nope, they are not psychic. Instead, that’s a cool Electronic Stability Programme that enhances your control behind the wheel, dependent on the driving conditions. We love it!

  • For hires of 51 days and over, a maximum of 50 days excess reduction premium will be charged.
  • It is the hirer’s responsibility to collect accurate third-party details in the event of an accident, regardless of what excess reduction cover is taken, and regardless also of fault.
  • If Stress Free Plus excess reduction is not taken, and roof/rooftop pod damage or single vehicle rollover incident occurs, a charge of up to $5,000 will apply to cover damage to the JUCY vehicle and any third-party vehicle and/or property.
  • If Risk Taker excess reduction is chosen:
    • A bond to cover the excess will be pre-authorised for security on the hirer’s credit card for the duration of the rental, even if hirer has alternative insurance with another provider.
    • The amount authorised will automatically be released back onto your credit card within 7 - 14 working days, this will also vary depending on your bank’s conditions.
    • All or part of this bond will be claimed by JUCY in the event of an accident and will be retained until the value of the damage is determined. Any balance between the bond and the damage cost will be returned as soon as is practical.
    • Any costs to repair damage caused by a third party may not be recoverable as insurance is not compulsory in Australia.
  • If the hirer is on Stress Free or Stress Free Plus and doesn’t have a credit card and is providing a debit card at the time of pickup, JUCY will hold a $300 security bond to cover any infringements and/or charges that may occur whilst on hire e.g. Tolls, speeding fines, cleaning fees, camping fines etc.
  • JUCY’s excess reduction options are null and void if any of the Rental Agreement terms and conditions are breached, in which case hirer will be liable for the full cost of damage. For more information, please see JUCY Ts & Cs.

Rent a JUCY Small Hatch for your Australian travels

A popular choice for a range of Australian road trips, our Small Hatch has the balance of everything you need from a rental car. A compact size that makes city driving a breeze? Check. Great on gas, so you’ve more dollars to spend on awesome Australian attractions? Check. Stylish design to match your cool vibes? Check. It may be clichéd, but our Small Hatch proves that good things really do come in small packages.  

Aside from an outback adventure (the Fiat Punto loves a sea breeze and a city visit far more), our Small Hatch can handle all your adventures. Planning a trip to the Blue Mountains? Or a friends or family visit where parking is a mission? Or maybe you’re heading off on a coastal drive from Melbourne to Cairns? Our Small Hatch is the best value and most convenient way to make the roadie magic happen.  

In case you were wondering, Melbourne to Cairns (or any other version of a branch-to-branch trip) is encouraged, as we allow one-way adventures (for a fee)! This is alongside saying yes to licensed drivers 18+ and offering a low rate for additional drivers.
