Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Perth car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them.

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.

Petrol 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 petrol stations, with prices increasing further out of the city. Also bear in mind that petrol 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).
