All the major hire companies are at the airport. Stick with them and you should be ok.

My suggestion is to pre-book your car beacuse if your getting in to Perth very late at night you'll find the desks are empty! However if yo pre-book you'll be ok.

www.vroomvroomvroom.com.au does comparisons for you.

Eurocar has had a bad wrap on this forum. Type it in the search box for WA and read comments for yourself.

The following acts as an agent for a number of the major firms. I know nothing about them though.


Basically anyone will let you pick up/drop off at the Airport - for a price.

Have a great trip.

We arrive in Perth on the 1st FEb and did a comparison of rental companies as we also wanted to pick up and drop off at the airport.

We chose Hertz because if you join their gold club which is currently free on their website you get a voucher for one day free in NZ/ Australia and a further one day free in the USA.

The free day reduced the cost considerably.

Picking up and dropping off at airports attracts a premium in rental charges, but if you want the convenience you gotta pay

We used Avis and found them most helpful. Great experience!

Have you tried M2000? They are one of the cheapest around in Perth, but not sure if you can pick up/return at the airport.

Just back from Australia and used pre booked service with Avis.. no problems whatsoever. Was a little apprehensive after reading the threads in this forum about some rental companies, but Avis were excellent.

Hired at Sat nav system too.. priceless.
