What you need to know about Perth Airport car hire

Driving tips for Perth and WA

  • Whilst city roads and motorways are comparatively wide in Perth, secondary roads outside of the city can skew narrow.
  • Drivers in Perth have a reputation for aggressive driving. Keep your cool and keep your distance.
  • Drivers may pull out onto the far lane to avoid you in the slow lane.
  • Traffic isn’t as bad here as it can be in some of Australia’s other major cities, but there is congestion during peak driving hours: avoid these times if you can. 
  • If you’re heading out of the city in your Perth Airport car rental, it is strongly advised to avoid travel at dusk, dawn, and after dark hours. Once you get into rural areas, wildlife is most active at these low-visibility times.
  • Rural areas of WA have fewer service stations, and they often close earlier. Plan ahead to ensure your fuel tank is topped up enough to get you where you need to go.

Exploring Perth in your rental car

Fremantle is one of Australia's largest ports, part of Perth's metropolitan area. Perth is a city of white sand beaches and exotic wildlife mixed with urban entertainment and trendy neighbourhoods. Hit all the hotspots in your Perth rental car.

  • King’s Park and Botanic Garden - Experience one of the world’s largest inner city parks, complete with stunning nature, rich history, and cultural experiences. At night, pack yourself a picnic and admire the twinkling lights of the city.
  • Cottesloe Beach - Watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean from the shores of this iconic beach of pure white sand halfway between Perth and Fremantle. 
  • Elizabeth Quay - This new development mixes business with pleasure in the Perth CBD, offering a wide variety of fun activities, dining opportunities and exciting events for everyone to enjoy. 
  • Aquarium of Western Australia - Visit the stunning Hillarys Boat Harbour to get to this underwater wonderland, and learn about the secrets of the deep along WA’s incredible coast.  
  • Swan Valley - Nominate a designated driver or hop on a tour to sample world class food and wine in this stunning region, just 25 minutes outside of Perth.

Choosing the ideal car hire for your visit to Perth

Find the right vehicle for your trip with a little help from us.

  • If you plan to explore wider WA, opt for an intermediate, large or SUV model for added safety features and extra space. 
  • See more of Western Australia by renting a 4WD and getting access to some off-the-beaten-path treks that a regular rental won’t give you.
  • If you want to save time by picking up at the airport, choose a brand with an onsite location, like Thrifty Perth Airport.
