A car rental car park manager in the Northern Territory has received a message from a car booking company claiming the company cannot park at his business premises.
The message was sent to the company’s CEO, who confirmed that the company was unable to park at the business premises on Sunday.
Car rental car parks are required to park on the car rental lot or in a car park in a designated parking space.
The business owner contacted the NT Government about the issue.
The NT Government said it was looking into the issue and is working with the company to resolve the issue quickly.
Mr Rennie said it would be inappropriate for the company or any of its members to park outside of a car parking area in the NT.
He said the car booking companies policy for car rentals was to provide parking space for cars, not to park cars in their business premises or other parking spaces.
He urged the car rentals industry to work with the NT Department of Tourism and Sport to ensure parking is available at car rental businesses.
The car rental companies chief executive, Stephen Rennis, said he was not aware of the situation.
“We have been working with them to get to the bottom of this issue,” Mr Rannies said.
Mr Carraig said the company had no problems parking on a car lot or on the property.
He also said it had not received any complaints from the NT Tourism Council.
“The owner and the car park owner have been communicating with the government to get this resolved,” he said.
“This is not an issue that is going to get fixed overnight.”
