However, I was aware that a small surcharge applied if you used a credit card. So, on returning the car, I offered to pay by EFTPOS. No sir, I was politely informed, the only option other than a credit card is cash. Accordingly, I offered cash, save that $1 change was required. Even providing a single $1 in change proved to be somewhat of a problem! I dug deeply and was able to provide the exact amount, but I was left with the strong impression that the credit card surcharge is usually "optional" in name only!

The other thing I noticed was the Qantas Club. It certainly occupies a big area in Perth (there's even an overflow area). It seems that many of the fly in/fly out workers have Qantas Club memberships!
