    So I just booked car hire in the UK through an Aussie site (drivenow) as it's well cheaper.
    It says on the confirmation "I'm in Australia", will they want proof of Aussie residence or not care?
    Any idea?

    Please tell me you're going to pretend to be an Australian, fake accent, "G'day mate, I'm here to pick up my car" etc :D

    I was thinking of that but when they question my Swiss driving license, I'll lose my cool :)

    I've done that a few times within Europe (always with the big providers), no issues so far. I don't really think they care that much, as long as they have ID, billing address and card details and your driving licence when you pick up the vehicle.

    Never tried to pretend being an Aussie though mate.

    Wear a hat with corks hanging from the brim, no questions will be asked

    And don't make the fatal mistake of carrying any cans of Foster's on you or your cover will be blown immediately. God speed

    Will a koala cuddly toy be enough?

    Make sure you ask for a Ute, that should convince them.
