Very helpful and friendly staff, vehicle was is excellent condition and very clean.No complaints, I only wish the location I rented from had the Porsche available at the time!
10.0 ExcellentMay 19 2019
Staff were friendly but had a wait at collection. excellent drop off but a bit challenging to locate the rental car rental entrance. Fantastic car Hyundai i30 navigation included. Guaranteed model selection is a good idea.I liked the onsite Hertz collection as the other off site car rental depots close after business hours and you need to get a cab to take you to and from the airport to their off site depot
10.0 ExcellentNov 30 2017
Great customer service.We were given a free upgrade to an SUV.Nothing!
8.4 ExcellentMar 21 2017
Book DirectI love to the car I got. It was perfect for my needs and served me well during a 3 Week Rd. trip in Western Australia. Hertz did right by me.there was some small damage to the car, and because my insurance is through a third-party, now I have a hassle on my hands. I think it's worth it to book directly considering how much the coverage costs and is at this point totally wasted money. If the third-party insurance actually comes through and pays for what they should pay for, I will feel differently. But for now I wish that I just booked directly through Hertz.

Car was great and price was good.Redspot has no signage and the phone is diverted to a mailbox, they will not call you back, the customer service agents at the counter were great but Redspot is hopeless.

Great serviceFirst time hiring a car, was very straight forward, nicer car than expected for the price, would definitely use there service again.Can't say there is anything I didn't like, just wish I had taken the offer to prepay the fuel on drop off as it a lot cheaper.

Staff were excellent. The staff at the drop-off point were helpful and efficient.Queuing to get in to the hut/portable office then a further wait at the pick-up was an irritation. If you have periods of high demand perhaps your facilities or staff, or both should be increased.

Everythings good but our car backside window(real window) already broken by someone(thief) at the first day night and our two luggage already gone. And when we tell company staff about this issues they still need us to paid by ourselves? We already bought our insurance but we still need to paid about this issues? This really made us feel upset.

Honest and easyCounter man was good at explaining everything.Kind of weird drop off. Did not inspect the car. Only wanted the key. Opposite of Hertz, which noticed two small dents in the roof and blamed me. I like Thrifty much better.

Car rental insurance in Perth

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Perth car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Perth.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Perth car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Perth

  • Whether you want to explore the greenery of the many surrounding national parks in Perth, visit the beach, or discover the many hidden gems of the city, with a rental car you can conveniently get to all your dream destinations. While public transport works fine inside the city, any areas outside the center like the Perth Hills or Margaret River, which is 167 miles south of Perth, need to be reached by car.
  • Start your time in Perth by renting a car directly at Perth Airport. Regardless of which terminal travelers arrive in, car rental service desks can be found in all of them. The companies found here include Avis, Budget, and Hertz, and are located past the Baggage Claim area and arrivals hall.
  • The most notable difference when driving in Australia compared to most other countries in the world, is that here you drive on the left side of the road. Simply follow cars when you are new to this; getting the hang of it will only be a matter of a short time. Also note that speeding cameras are very common all around Australia, so adhering to the given speed limits is important.
  • Road conditions can vary from region to region and, even though Perth generally has well-maintained roads, conditions outside the city in particular can worsen, so make sure insurance is taken care of and get informed on whether car underside coverage is included. Also, when driving outside of the city, check whether there is enough gas in the tank, as gas stations can get scarce when leaving any urban setting.

  • As parking can difficult in Perth, opting for a compact car is advisable. Choosing a 4-wheel-drive car can also bear advantages when planning trips out of the city. As drivers sit on the right-hand side, the gear shift has to be used with the left hand, so drivers who are not used to that should go for an automatic car.

  • Speed limits in Australia are given in kilometers per hour. Unless posted otherwise, regulations are 40 km/h (24 mph) in school zones, 50 km/h (31 mph) in residential areas, 70-80 km/h (43-49 mph) in two-lane country roads, and 100-110 km/h (62-68 mph) on freeways and bush roads. Note that posted signs are on the left side of the road rather than the right.

  • Gas prices in Perth vary and are usually more expensive on weekends and public holidays. The average price is around AUD$1.50 per liter ($1.09 per ¼ gallon, or $4.36 per gallon). The metro area in Perth usually features the cheapest gas stations, with prices increasing further out of the city. Also bear in mind that gas stations become less frequent once out on the rural roads, so refueling beforehand is important.

  • Street parking in Perth can be tricky and on the expensive side, so, if possible, opt for accommodation with a parking space included. Metered on-street parking is an option, but keep coins ready as many meter machines to not take credit cards and don’t even give change. Additionally, street parking is usually restricted to a maximum of two hours. Parking lots (called “car parks” in Australia) and garages are an alternative where cars can be parked longer, but they are usually quite expensive (up to AUD$5 per hour, which is about $3.60).

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
