In terms of "hidden" charges, you'll most likely have to pay the credit card surcharge (I think 1.5%?). Apart from that, just check your invoice carefully with Hertz at the counter before you leave. They have a pretty dodgy IT system, and sometimes gives you a different price from what you have booked. Also, they might sometimes try to sneak in an excess deduction even though you didn't book it with that option. Other things to look out for are toll payments (they probably wouldn't do that in Perth), and they might have accidentally ticked the prepaid full tank of fuel option.

I rent quite often so I generally notice any discrepancies very quickly, but I would suggest you to have a print out of what you have booked with the full price, and compared it to the actual invoice on the spot. There may be a few dollars different, but any larger difference should be queried on the spot. The counter staff will probably look at you weirdly for doing so, but it is your money.

icic. Not much different from the 5 seater I Guess. Just got the extra seat behind.
Tried the 5 seater x trail last year when in Perth.
Was looking for a bigger option for this year trip for 5 ppl... thought kluger will be a better choice

Rented two from a Fremantle outlet. They are 2WD only (stingy rental coy didnt want to pay extra for 4WD option) but no issues going on unpaved/gravel roads.

Plenty of boot space is available with the third row down. For ur party of 5 pax i'll say this is good if there's at least 3 checked-in luggage in tow

How about boot space with 3rd row up?
Was planing to rent a 7 seater SUV with 3 row up.. to have more space for the back ppl. More comfortable for long journey drive.

Seem kluger will be a good choice. But if given a x trail ... then it's really no point. Must well just take the 5 seater SUV.

I have 4 adults and 2 children. 3rd row half seat fold, can put 2 x 29", 1 x 22" and 2 cabin size luggage.

I guess IMAX is better if you prefer bigger size.

Here's an image of the boot space



U can fold half the 3rd row down.. but third row legroom not very good..

PS: The rental units should have the 3.5L engine. Plenty of power but expect 7-10km/l only depending on ur foot

Depends on how far out your trip is. Prices always change and they may move up or down if you book months ahead. If you are renting next week then lock in your price and try to save a bit pre-paying.

Otherwise I would advise to just reserve and hunt for new codes along the way to get more discounts. Cancellations are free if not pre-paid.
