Hiring a car in Perth - useful information

Getting around Perth by car

The centre of Perth is a Free Transit Zone, with travel on buses within this are free all day. Western Australia is a big state and there’s so much to see outside of Perth. The easiest way to see it all is by hiring a car and driving yourself.

Traffic in Perth isn’t as heavy as in other Australian cities but it does get heavy at peak hour. If you can, avoid driving around Perth between 7am and 9am and between 4pm and 6pm when the traffic is at its worst.
