4A1C, i suggest you take the 7 seater kluger.. can't imagine the adults sitting beside the child seat for long periods of time.
It will be squeezy for 2 adults and a child seat at the back?

buy direct expensive, but no need to bother if accident or whatever. rental company will settle.

buy separately you will have to pay up first, and claim from your third party later on using the invoice. they wonít liaise for you.

up to you to decide which way better for you.

do also check the excess terms. often they donít cover windscreen, top, undercarriage, lights, etc. differs from each company

Thanks. I guess buying direct from rental company is easier then.

Pre booked and paid for 2 cars.

The counter in perth airport felt that i booked wrongly as the booking was booked under 1 name for 2 cars.

Anyway, next unplesant event would be theres only 1 mid sized suv avail. And thus 1 car was downsized to a small sized suv.

Lastly as 2 bookings were done under same name. We were forced to buy additional driver for the 6/7 days of ride.

Avis used to be okay for my past 2 visits but this time they done badly

how is rav4 compared to Toyota Corolla or Kia Cerato? just boot bigger?

planning to rent from no birds. going on a road trip to MR but is concern about the back seat, where we are planning to seat 3 skinny person. so Rav4 would be better i guess?

Rav4 or outlander or most suv drives better than corolla bah.

Bigger boot space. Though back seats more upright.

Suv handles better than most sedans

Hi guys, need some advice on going to the airport after returning a rental car at Bayswater Car rental Kewdale office.
I'm renting a car from Bayswater and planning to return the car after office hours (at night ard 9pm) on a Sat at their Kewdale office as my flight out of Perth is at midnight. As their shuttle service would have ended by then, I've to find my own way back to the airport after dropping off the car.

1) Is it advisable to return the car to the Kewdale office after office hours on a saturday and finding own transport to the airport? Or better to return to the Bayswater office in Perth CBD so it's easier to get a cab? Anyone tried this before?

2) Is there a way to reliably secure a cab or transport to the airport at night from the Bayswater Kewdale office. Any cab companies or transport companies we can contact?

Hope anyone with experience can advise. Thanks.

If you can return earlier, just do so.
