www.zipcar.com They're cheaper than Flex Car!  The "personal use" rate
is from $8.50 an hour.  The "daily rate" is from $59.00 (depending on
model of car).  Included are: gas, insurance, designated parking plus 125
FREE miles.  For example, a Miata Convertible is $10.50 an hour or
$69.00 a day.  One you join, the Annual Fee for "occasional driving" is
$25.00.  The "Extra Value" plan has no annual fee if you drive one full day
per month or several hourly trips per month (this plan includes a 10%
driving discount).  Once you apply on line and receive your Zip Card,
point it at the car, click and the car will open.  (I will use Zip Car because
there is one available right around the corner from my apartment building
in the Adams-Morgan area of NW DC -- half a block -- how convenient
is that?!!)
www.flexcar.com Annual Fee is $35.  
Rates are $9 an hour and up or $35-$90
daily (depending on model of car you
rent). Included are full insurance
coverage, gas, maintenance, cleaning,
parking and 24-hour emergency service.  
Cars are located at or near Metro
stations, e.g., 53 Metro stations in the DC
metropolitan area (includes VA and MD).
Their "Standard Plan" is $9 an hour and
also includes unlimited miles (plus gas and
insurance).

on OpenNet Plus, and at
http://foia.state.gov/REGS/Search.asp on
the Internet.  Ref A, the COM's basic
authorities has also been updated.
To visit the park, you can do it yourself or use a package -- however,
Norma Dugger, an Australian specialist at Portfolio Travel
(202-966-4111, http://www.portfoliotravel.com/ ), said it would be
difficult to do the side trip in two days. To book your own excursion,
Skywest flies round trip from Perth to Exmouth for $400. From April until
June, whale shark tours operate out of Coral Bay or Exmouth on the
Coral Coast; you can book online at the Exmouth Visitor Centre (
http://www.exmouthwa.com.au/ ). Lodging ranges from chalets to a
non-air-conditioned six-bed mini-dorm ($17). For a list, see Ningaloo
Reef Dive ( http://www.ningalooreefdive.com/ ), which also organizes
snorkel and dive trips. For more info on the region: Tourism Western
Australia, 011-61-8-9483-1111, http://www.westernaustralia.com/ .
If you have more time, Australian
Pinnacle Tours in Perth
(011-61-8-9417-5555,
http://www.pinnacletours.com.au/
) offers a five-day Monkey Mia
and Ningaloo reef package from
$625 per person twin share. The
trip includes transport, tours,
breakfast and lodging. It also
leads a one-day Coral Bay and
Ningaloo Reef tour for $90, but
it departs from Carnarvon.
