    Kia Ora,

    I'm coming to NZ and Australia over the Xmas break and I will be missing my Tesla being parked in my garage at home while I'm there.
    Just wondering if anyone knows of a place where I could rent one from around the 20th to 31st of December?

    Thanks

    I'm not aware of any self-drive Tesla rental in Australia but we do have a few Limo services that use Model S including Evoke Limo in Sydney. The owners are long time TMC members.

    Actually I was wondering if you could hire a Tesla in the US. Wanted to drive Route 66 fron Dallas Airpirt to Vegas via the Grand Canyon, with the family. But niw I only want to do it in a Model S... or X for that matter... Anyone know anyone who knows anything?

    No, I don't. Sorry. I'm coming in from Toronto, Canada.

    I hired one out of LAX via Relay Rides in July 2015.

    OK thanks. Coming down from Toronto. Probably won't work out but thanks anyway.

    OK thanks but way too expensive. Quite ludicrous actually. $150.00 an hour?

    My wife is the owner so I'm obviously biased but... $150 an hour is quite cheap in Australia for a luxury chauffeur service.

    The other way to do this is (with a little more notice) organise to swap dwellings + Tesla with a local owner who wants a holiday for the period. This is what I've done for July next year.

    The $150.00 an hour is not a chauffeur service. If is a rental service like what you would get at an airport etc.

    According to their web site it is a chauffeur service, including the hourly version, Ie you are paying for the driver too.
