Car hires in Perth: practical information

Where to rent a car in Perth

Western Australia is waiting! Have you already booked tickets from London to Perth? Great! Then you're well on your way to planning your trip. All you need now is to compare car hires in Perth and choose the right one. Consider this: Perth is the most isolated (regional) capital city in the world. That being said it's a good idea to check out car hire deals in Perth before you go. At the airport you can find a number of car hire companies, by far the most convenient place to pick up/drop off a rental: Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Redspot and Thrifty.

Besides the airport you can also pick up a car hire Perth city centre. Budget is located along Dunkeld Road, National Car is on Glasgow Road, Thrifty is located at Lawgrove Place and Enterprise is an Arran Road. These locations are convenient if you're staying in the suburbs. In the city centre, go with National or Europcar on Glasgow Road.

Driving in Perth: parking and other tips

It's both easy to find parking in Perth as well as reasonably priced whether you need an over-night spot or just some place to park while you're out and about visiting the city. There are five car parks in the city centre, as well as many others in East Perth, River Foreshore, Northbridge and West Perth. Expect to pay around $13.70 for a 12 hour maximum. For some lots, it can cost as much as $45/24 hours (Convention Centre). The weekend rates are always cheaper, as are the early bird rates.

Why not save yourself the trouble of shopping for a parking spot and book hotels in Perth with parking available? Holiday Inn, Travelodge and Mercure are just a couple that have parking facilities at their guest's disposal.

Road trips from Perth: what to do, what to see

Margaret River

Margaret River

Margaret River is arguably the world's best grape-growing region. They're also producing some of the best wines on the planet. Don't believe us? Try them for yourself! Vineyards located alongside excellent beaches… you may never want to finish your holidays in Perth or leave Australia's South West after you've seen the scenery and had a dip in the ocean.

Wave Rock

Wave Rock

If Wave Rock doesn't top the list of funniest (most pointless) tourist attractions in Australia, we don't know what does. But that being said, this wave-shaped rock is still pretty cool, located near the town of Hyden. We say, why not? It's a huge natural shaped granite rock in the form of a breaking wave, about 14m high and 110m long.

Cervantes

Cervantes

We said that Perth is pretty isolated so you won't be surprised that there's a desert nearby in Cervantes. Here you can find thousands of rock pillars rising up out of the dirt in the Pinnacles Desert. Also in the lake there are rocks which are believed to be billions of years old. That's some serious geology!
