These aggregator websites are only agents, referring you to rental companies to sell you the insurance. The actual rental contract is signed on the spot when you pick up the car later.

Unless you know what you are doing, chances are you will end up buying another "comprehensive insurance" on the spot at the rental company. Direct is generally the best for car rental companies unless they are using franchisee operations. Search a bit more and you can find discount codes for most of the major operations.

Photo evidence doesn't mean anything, you can say your rental car speedo is off. Usually 1st timers, they will drop the fine..

Kena speeding ticket by mail to Singapore. Caught running at 117 on 110 highway.

Any idea how to pay the fine online? Or can I ignore it?
If you ignore it, the record will be wiped out after 5 years. But that means you can't step into WA in the next 5 years.

Got money to go traveling but no money to pay fines, so cheapskate..... No wonder this world is in a mess...

If you really stay in Australia before, you should compare their driving habits to the driving habits here, one is certainly 1st world standards, while the other is still in 3rd world standards....

I am indeed living here? What for pay unnecessary fines if there's no harm trying to appeal?

Was in Perth Airport International arrival On 5 dec Morning 5.50am,
Hertz and Avis counter already manned at the time
The queue is longer for hertz than avis,by maybe 30% more

For those using Red spot, please find out if u have go to their domestic terminal as it was not manned for the 50 mins there when i was selecting my car from Hertz or maybe they start later

also found out, For Hertz, on the spot booking of rental car is more expensive the advance booking
Luckily i pre book 2 days earlier

just curious.. if we bought our own travel insurance that comes with car rental excess do we still need to buy comprehensive insurance when we rent the car?

I believe those kind will only pay the excess which you're charged with from the rental co.
