  Getting around

Serving the capital and largest city of Western Australia, Perth’s  Domestic Airport (PER) is the fourth busiest airport in the country, located roughly 10 km (6.2 mi) east of the Perth central business district (CBD). Perth’s airport car rental system is somewhat different — and probably more efficient — compared to other airports, with car rental desks appearing in the arrival sections of all four terminals, instead of consolidated in one building or facility. Walk off the plane and find Avis, Budget, Enterprise and Europcar right there, holding the keys to your car hire.

As the “front door” to Western Australia, Perth is the main transportation hub of the region, with solid infrastructure geared toward motorized vehicles. The compact and easy-to-navigate CBD has only one major drawback: parking — pricey and often hard to find. Otherwise, getting around Perth is fairly straightforward. Most traffic regulations that apply elsewhere are enforced here as well.

On the other hand, if you’re planning a road trip to explore some of Western Australia’s extraordinary scenery, rural driving comes with a few hazards. Animals on the road are a never-ending issue, so visitors are advised to avoid driving on rural highways after sundown. Fuel stations are few and far between, so you’re strongly encouraged to top-up the tank at every available opportunity. And finally, by the unfortunate chance that your car rental has a problem, you’ll be waiting longer for roadside assistance.

  Choosing your car

Choosing your car is likely to be determined by your destination. We make it easy to rent a car that suits your needs. If you’re sticking close to the city, a compact Hyundai is great for getting around the CBD. For those excursions into the vast WA wilderness, you have a number of options based on your plans. A full-size Toyota is good for small families on day trips to Penguin Island. Camping is a popular activity, so a Mitsubishi SUV is good for rougher terrain and hauling gear. And a 7-9 seater Dodge minivan is ideal for group outings to the Margaret River wine region.

  Tips and advice for renting a car at Perth Airport Domestic Terminal

1

GPS. If your car rental deal doesn’t include free GPS, don’t leave the airport without it.

2

(PER) is served by four terminals - T1, T2, T3 and T4 — paired at two different facilities separated by a 15-minute drive: the T1/T2 precinct and the T3/T4 precinct. Be sure to check your itinerary carefully and so you wind up at the correct terminal.

3

All international flights arrive and depart from (PER) Terminal 1 airport. Qantas international and domestic flights arrive and depart from Terminal 3 and 4 (T3/T4). If you’re traveling with passengers and luggage, it’s probably a good idea to drop them off at the departure area before returning your vehicle. Otherwise, it’s at least a 5-minute walk from the rental return station to the terminal, which could be problematic with children or bulky suitcases in tow.

4

Driving long distances can often result in driver’s fatigue. If road-tripping across WA, it’s important to stop occasionally to stretch your legs. Breaking up an eight-hour drive into manageable two-hour sections may add a few minutes to travel times, but playing it safe is highly recommended.

5

Couples and groups traveling together should take turns driving on longer road trips into remote WA. Ask your airport car rental agency about adding additional drivers to your agreement.

6

If you’re headed out of town, familiarize yourself with the procedures in case you do hit an animal on the road.
