Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better, and that’s true in the case of your ride. In Western Australia, compact cars are the most popular type of rental car for many reasons. More miles per gallon, zippier handling, and easy parking are just the tip of the iceberg! If you intend to cruise through Perth or Mandurah, choose something that’s chic and compact.That said, Western Australia is renowned for its coral reefs, sandy shores, and impressive rock formations. Many adventurers get out of the city to explore those dazzling vistas. If that sounds enticing, go for an SUV or a full-size car. Even if you don’t have plans to take the path less traveled, you’ll value the extra room.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Western Australia?
Sometimes it’s all about the journey, which makes choosing the right car important. If you’re planning an epic road trip around Western Australia, a roomy SUV could be the ideal solution. If you’re hoping for the best possible price and plan to stick to city driving, a versatile compact is hard to beat. All you have to do is work out what’ll suit you best, throw your bags in the trunk, and start clocking up those miles.
What side of the road do they drive on in Western Australia?
The left side is where you’ll be driving along in Western Australia. The controls of your rental car here, like the steering wheel and stick shift (if your car has manual transmission), will be on the opposite side of what you’re used to.
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in Australia?
Most of the time, your chosen car rental company will bill the amount listed on the fine to your credit card, including local taxes. Alternatively, they may provide your contact details to local law enforcement agencies, who’ll then send a fine directly to you.
