Woman: Hello, how can I help you? 

Man: Hi, I’m Carl Mckay and you booked me some flights recently to Australia and some internal ones. 

Woman: Oh, yes Mr. McKay. I remember you now, of course. 

Man: Well, I find I’m going to need a car hire while I’m in Sydney, after all. I think you said you could recommend a good value company. 

Woman: Yes, that’s right. Cost-wise Cars. They’re very good and don’t charge lots of extras. They have three offices in the Sydney area including one office right at the airport.

Man: So I’ll just book it online. 

Woman: Yes, you can book online, but you should have their phone number too, just in case. 

Man: Mmm Of course. 

Woman: That’s 1 800 705 639. It’s on the website and you can get a discount if you quote your booking reference from us. 

Man: Oh, what’s that? 

Woman:  I mean the one you got from me when we booked your flights. I have it here.. 743 002. 

Man: Oh, thanks, I guess I’ve got it at home, but I’ll write it down again in case. This count is good. So where exactly is the office? I’ll be coming to the domestic terminal from Melbourne.

Woman:  It’s immediately outside the international terminal.

Man:  Okay, and another thing I want to check is, will they be open when I arrive, or is it just office hours? 

Woman: Mmm.. They open at a quarter to seven and close at 6:15 in the evening. So let’s see. You’re due to land at ten past six. By the time you’ve collected your bags and so on which will take a little while, they won’t be open. But if you arrange it in advance they can wait for you. You do have to pay an extra $30 for that though. 

Man: Okay. Well, I’m staying near the airport the first night so I could go back in the morning and see the day’s hire.

 Woman: yes, that’d be better. That’d save you about $50. 

Man: Do you know what kind of cars they have? 

Woman: Quite a variety, I think. The best value should be under $60 a day with luck. That would be the echo, I guess. 

Man: Sorry?
