KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Fremantle

  • As you drive in Fremantle, you might traverse some restricted roads. Marine Terrace runs along the coast of Fremantle and is a popular route for tourists. However, portions of the road can be quite narrow and winding, making it difficult for drivers to navigate. In addition, there are several roundabouts along the road that require extra caution. High Street is another of the busiest roads in Fremantle and is known for its heavy traffic. Portions of the road can be quite narrow, and there are several intersections that require extra caution when turning.
  • To reserve a hire car in Fremantle, you will generally need to meet certain requirements. The most important is having a valid driver's licence from your country of origin; you may need an international driving permit too. It's also common for car hire companies to require you to be at least 21 years of age, although some may have higher age requirements. Additionally, you will need a valid credit card in your name, to make the reservation and pay for the hire car. Insurance coverage is often provided by the hire car company, but you may have the option to decline it or purchase additional coverage.
  • It's important to be aware of the Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) policy, which aims to create a 100% renewable energy and zero-emission transport zone in the Fremantle city centre. You may encounter electric vehicle charging stations and other infrastructure as you navigate the city streets the emission zone covers. To avoid any issues while driving a Fremantle hire car, be sure to obey any posted signs and regulations related to ZEVs or other low-emission areas. Additionally, if you are interested in hiring a low-emission or zero-emission vehicle, you may be eligible for financial incentives under the ZEV policy. It's a good idea to check with the car hire company about their policies regarding low-emission vehicles if you're interested in hiring one, especially when seeking cheap car hire in Fremantle.
  • Flanked by beaches, such as Coogee and Cottesloe to the north and south, hiring a car in Fremantle provides the ability to drive right up to the edge of the sand. Travelling along the Fremantle coastline by public transport is problematic as bus services head inland after South Beach. Driving to Coogee takes less than 10min from Fremantle, while a bus journey requires roughly 45min and over 2 km of walking. Perth Zoo is also tricky to reach without a hire car as a connection of two buses taking about 1h is needed; however, driving by car only needs 30min.
  • Reception offices for hire car companies are located to the left of the baggage claim carousels in T1 Domestic at Perth Airport (PER). Branches are also situated on the Ground Floor of T1 International, on the far left, with a short walk needed to pick up the vehicles. Reception desks are directly in front of baggage claim carousels in T2, and are in the middle of the Arrivals Area in T3 and T4. Shuttle services for off-site hire companies pick passengers up at the bus stands in front of T1, Zone A outside T2 and the rideshare lane in front of T3 and T4.
  • Large trucks frequent the roads surrounding Fremantle Port throughout the day and drivers must keep a safe distance from the oversized vehicles. Be mindful at intersections that trucks have wide turning circles and may need to cross more than one lane to complete a turn. Fremantle has many speed cameras and drivers should pay close attention to their speedometer and signposting to ensure they don’t receive a fine.
  • Expect the worst of Fremantle traffic from 07:30–09:30 and 15:00–18:00. Congestion is common on Tydeman Rd and across Stirling Bridge, with rushes of trucks entering and exiting Fremantle Port. Canning Hwy is busiest heading east in the morning and west during the afternoon. Summer temperatures in Western Australia can soar above 40°C and it’s best to avoid driving in the middle of the day.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Fremantle for $71 or less
  • Book your rental car in Fremantle at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Fremantle are around 29% more expensive than other car types, on average
