Are you renting exotic cars? Most normal cars are unlimited mileage anyway..
I think that's from Bayswater car hire, where they charge different rates for "city use" (being 100 km per day) or unlimited km. As far as I'm aware (but I could be wrong - never rented from them before), there is no area restriction for the "city use", and as long as you don't exceed 100km per day, there is no extra charge no matter where you take the car to (within their 500km zone).

Probably best to work out how many km you will be driving (although going to Margaret River and back plus a few attractions would be around 600km). I really don't think they would offer a combined booking as someone could simply get 1 day of unlimited use and still drive around as much as they want. I guess you could make 2 bookings, and go return the car and pick up again if you really want to save that money.

Yes Bayswater is an option as well, they cater more to those who require short term rental etc.

Enquiry on Hertz Rental

Hi all,

I will be doing a 6D5N self-drive trip to Perth in May and will be booking my car rental with Hertz.

However, I have encounter the different pricing between booking by Hertz member and guest. (same car/class/same insurance coverage)

By booking it as a guest with Toyota Corolla(Group H), without any coverage is at a price of $243AUD

By booking it as a Member with same option as the above, it cost a total of $520 AUD! (same price as with everything in )

Is there anyone that have encounter this situation or had book with Hertz before able to advise?

Should I just book the $243 without any coverage(get a 3rd party insurance coverage)

or

Should I just go ahead to book the one that consists of everything at a price of $520?

No brainer, just choose the cheaper option and find a 3rd party insurance..

On the other hand, you'll need to find 2 parking spots and pay for 2 lots of parking. It's really only an issue in the CBD and Fremantle, so it depends on where you're ultimately spending time in.

7 adults, 2 kids.. you need a 9 seater van. Not sure if there's such a vehicle available. Fremantle isn't an issue, plenty of parking. Whilst in the city, it's unlikely you need a car to get around.

Oh... 7 + 2 = 9. I can't count.

Every pax needs their own seat here, unlike in SG where you can put in additional kids.

Some places have 12 seater hiace available, but given the costs and the bulkiness of the vehicle, 2 cars would definitely be the better option.

For Hertz member you may need to drill down into your insurance options under your member profile/account details. If you choose maximum coverage and all the options they will be auto-reflected and so you don't have to sign anything when you pick up the car. These are set by per region, so you may have to look under Australia/New Zealand.

Also, the US and Australia urls quote differently even though the quote still comes out in AUD at the end of the day.

For Hertz, I usually just go with whatever is the cheapest option, so I would check the websites from multiple countries, and if the member price doesn't look right, I would log out and have a look at the non-member price as well.
