Has anyone used Aries car rental before, and if so, how did you find your experience with them please?

hi,
any zero excess car rental that cheaper than bayswater?

I'm looking around for a rental for next month, and have found bayswater to be fairly cost competitive. However one of the accommodation hosts recommended Aries. A cursory glance indicated they may be slightly cheaper, so asking around for experiences.

Can tarago include the luggage with 4 adults and 2 kids? It seems the luggage space is small after all seat are up.

Can. From car rental to ur hotel or airbnb. U do 2-3-1 seating plan 1st. Bring down the last row seats for more luggage space.

Once check in change back config 2-2-2. 😊

Yes but they are expensive if buy full cover insurance

I buy 2 travel insurance coverage with 1.5k each making up 3k total for coverage. Paid about $130 (18 days) Cheaper then buying straight from rental company

if you not buy full coverage from that rental company, they will upfront the excess from your credit card?

If buying from travel insurance and if any accident involve, the car company will deduct the excess from your credit card. You have to claim the excess from travel insurance later?

Hi Keith, if you look into the terms and conditions you are not allowed to make 2 claims for 1 incident even if you are claiming from different companies. In the unlikely event the companies find out they have the right to rescind both payouts or deny claim to you.

Best if you take up specialised excess insurance or direct rental company excess reduction or 0 excess package.

might be taxes and card handling fees - suggest you write to them to confirm the final charges.

For Hertz, there are no other charges apart from credit card fees of 1.5%. There are no toll roads in Perth so you don't have to worry about that. Just checked the invoice before you drive off to make sure that, 1. the correct rate is used, and 2. they haven't "accidentally" ticked any of the extras that you don't want.
