Car Hire in Perth
So you have just arrived in Perth and need to hire a car to get around. Car hire can be organised for pick up at the airport or there are also various car hire companies located in the Perth CBD, near the airport along Great Eastern Highway and in various other locations in the metropolitan area.
Its best to check with individual companies as to their car hire rates and to compare amongst the different companies to find out which one best meets your requirements. Car hire rates will be affected by seasonal factors such as school holidays and popular holiday times.
Once you have selected your car, you will have to select your options which are usually in addition to the base rate for car hire ie. excess reduction/damage waiver (insurance), extra kilometres charges, fees and charges such as airport and admin fees, and the hire of GPS units.
If you are planning to travel to the country areas of Western Australia and intend to hire a car once you get to these areas, the selection of car rental companies is more limited, and the choice is generally between the bigger car rental companies. Note that there may also be limitations on the use of the car on certain road conditions ie. unsealed roads.
A Listing of the main car rental companies are provided as follows:
Bayswater Car Rental
The Bayswater Car Rental business model is based on a low cost formula of offering only Toyota Corollas for its fleet. Its offices are located in Perth, Bayswater (near the airport), Fremantle, and Subiaco.
There are also a range of local car hire companies which are located near the airport along Great Eastern Highway in Redcliffe, Ascot, Belmont and Burswood, and Albany Highway in East Victoria Park as you head in the direction of the Perth CBD. Some may offer cheaper options for car hire if that is what you are after.
