is it recommended to rent a SUV or just a normal car will do for 2 person? 7 days. Heading from Perth to Albany to MR to Perth.
Doing the same route, adding in Hyden then back to Perth

Hi guys, could like to seek advice if were to go in 8pax what could be the recommendation for driving? Let say only have 1 or 2 with driving license. Probably like a roadtrip.

I booked with Thrifty Perth (Toyota Kluger) for my trip next month... 6 adults so quite limited choices. Airport pick up and return.

AUD 579.05 for 8 days with $4000 excess after a 12% discount code.

Then bought a car rental insurance separately from Tripcover - AUD 55.76 to reduce excess to $300 (which will be covered by my travel insurance)

Hope everything will go well.

Also hoping that it can fit 3 x 24inch luggage too.. else will prob have to put on laps for the journey from airport to apartment. hahaha.
How is your trip? Is Kluger boot space big enough to fit your luggage when 3rd row seat is up?

Thanks everyone for the adv and suggestions! Driving in WA is indeed pretty awesome. Q5 was the perfect car to soak up the miles! Can't imagine doing it in a saloon. Aussie drivers are very courteous.

Parking in the city is super expensive. $5/hr 😳 else where was usually free.

just came back... they gave me Pajero instead of Kluger. Boot space is tiny as with any 4WD. There were 6 of us, so we made use of one of the 3rd row seat to put our luggage as well when we collected the car at the airport. It was pretty cramped for the person in the 3rd row.

When going back, I got my uncle to help out by sending 2 pax in his car to the airport so that we can put down the 3rd row and put the luggage instead.

For a family of 4 adults driving in perth for the first time and taking the typical route of driving up to pinacle and down to MR, would we need a SUV or a normal sedan/saloon will do? Luggage wise probably 1 large and 1 small suitcase along with 2 large backpacks.

Just go for SUV or something within your budget, a saloon may be sufficient though.

I dun think SUV can fit all those bags.

My last trip, 2 large suitcase can fit into a Camry.

SUVs have the ability to stack the luggage on top of each other.. i'm quite sure its sufficient.

Do they have the Nissan X-trail available for rent in Australia now? If so, it would be an ideal budget SUV for those who need space and dont want a fuel guzzler. The 2nd row is rather spacious and the 3rd row which is only suitable for young children can be folded down to give ample luggage space.
