Do not use Ascot Car Rental.
We still are awaiting our deposit return. We live in the UK and although had excellent service from Ascot for the duration of our stay in Australia - the promised phone call to confirm the return of our deposit never materialised. We have now phoned and emailed on several occasions but have had no response.
We have full photos of the car before and after the rental so the company have no reason to keep our deposit.
We rented the Car from a man from the BP garage in between Newtown and Erskinville and still have the rental agreement which confirms payment of the deposit of 210 AUD.
