Will be going Perth in chrismas period, rentals are insanely expensive due to holiday season.
Also, can only rent from the big names in airport since all other places are closed.

Going for a roadtrip south of Perth, probably covering some 2500km in 9 days.

Would like to get help for a couple of things.

1. Need to get GPS or not?
2. Ideal to get full cover from Hertz or not? I think it's 30++ AUD per day to reduce everything to zero and inclusive of single car accidents too?
3. How are young drivers subcharged calculated?
4. If me and another friend driving (both 24), how will us be charged?
5. Anyone tried just putting 1 name and two person share while driving? (Can probably save 150 this way)
https://www.hertz.com.au/rentacar/Ca...au-youngdriver

This might be helpful.

And I'm not sure if Hertz Australia will waive additional driver if he/she is your significant other/fiancee/fiance. I know US will.

Singapore driving license in English. No need IDP.
Speaking of IDP, does a Malaysian licence require an IDP? It has English on the licence already.

Hi all

How much is the deposit roughly for car rental?

Refundable?

Strangely enough, my last car rental with Avis, they didn't take a deposit.. But typically between 200-500$

I don't think Hertz takes deposits from me either but I'm some sort of a member so the treatment might be different. Most of my rentals are with Hertz as their IT system isn't very good and I can usually get very good discounts off it.

I believe they don't need a deposit because your cc is on file with them already when you paid/booked. Somewhere in the long list of T&Cs you ticked it says they can charge you without further authorization for any fines, tolls, and damage incurred during the rental. Same goes for the Avis.

I have two Toyota Kluger from Hertz right now. Deposit is $300 each because it's a hertz franchisee.

This vehicle is a 7 seater SUV but note it's only 2WD so no offroading is possible. Comes equipped with 3.5l v6 engine option - plenty of torque available but at times too much torque for the front wheel to handle (traction control keep kicking in when flooring from standstill). Good for families of 5 with luggages

Fuel consumption wise - ard 10l/100 for highway and 18l/100km for city driving
