Tried to book too late at No Birds. Can't reserve the Rav 4 now.

I prefer a car with cruise control and bluetooth if possible.

Has anyone of you booked the "New Mid-size Sedan" recently (either Corolla or Cerato)? Would want to confirm if there is any cruise control or bluetooth for this vehicle. Prefer sedan rather than hatch as i will be carrying 2 large suitcases with 2 backpacks. Thanks

With the lack of choices now, i'm likely to get that option too. The usual big few car rentals at the airport is really over priced comparatively

i agree the airport ones are more ex after comparing. But Guess there are people who don't mind paying for the convenience

Not all cars have cruise control, let along bluetooth.. only the premium ones like Audi or BMW probably confirmed to have..

The large sedans like Ford or Holden will definitely have cruise control

I have been reading thru the pages, from what I understand, there is roadside parking which will indicate 1P, 2P, 3P, and it leash 1h, 2h, 3h free parking. So I would like to ask what happens after the free parking? How do they know how Long have we parked at that lot? Sorry if my q sounds noob, first time going there.

They mark your car tyres, if they come back after 1hr or 2hr etc, and still see the mark on your car, they fine you.

Some places have these RFID on the lot itself, once a car parks there, the count down starts and alerts the parking attendant once the time is up

Sounds like a very interesting way to check. Any idea how on the ball are they doing the checks? And what sort of fine are we looking at if we exceed the time?

Thanks! Interesting read. Seems like different areas have different ways of dealing with parking

Just came back from Perth and this is what i observed
Do look at the signboards properly.
Once the signboard mention ticket, you will need to pay and 1p,2p ,3p refers to the max time you can park.

Most parking in Perth CBD area not not free even on Sunday.

I'm heading there end of June, not booked a car yet. Any recommendation for rental companies with car pick up and return at airport?
So far I found these 2 sites to provide pretty good rates
