international-driving-permit-and-passportAre you planning a trip to Australia soon?

Renting a car is the easiest and most convenient ways to get around town. But before you can drive, it’s a good idea to apply for an International Driving Permit (IDP) first. This document along with a valid driver’s licence from your home country allows you to legally drive internationally. It also includes additional photo identification and translations in different languages.

One thing to note is that international driving permits are only valid for one year. You cannot renew them but you can apply for them again in your home country when needed.

Applying for an International Driving Permit

The process for applying for an international driving permit varies for each country. All Americans must be at least 18 years old and can apply [...]

road-into-the-distanceMany car accidents occur as a result of failing to follow traffic rules.

Even one second with your eyes away from the road can have devastating consequences. While some accidents are impossible to anticipate and avoid, evidence shows that most are actually preventable. This is why it is important to recognise road rules at all times.

Here is a guide on traffic rules in Australia to ensure safe and enjoyable travels on the road.

If you wish to operate a car legally in Australia, then you need to have a valid driver’s licence or else you risk heavy penalties if you are caught without one. If you are travelling from overseas, you must have an international driving permit.

New experiences on the open road is what makes road trips so alluring. There is just so much to enjoy whether you are going solo or with your closest friends. But you certainly don’t want to simply jump into your car without any preparation as you never know when an emergency might arise.

Bringing the following essentials can help make your next road trip more enjoyable and much safer.

1. Maps

Even if you already have your route all planned out, it’s still a good idea to bring a map with you of the areas you will be driving into. That way you can easily find the right road should you run into a detour or wish to explore a new area. You can purchase a traditional paper map, but a [...]

I could not recommend these guys highly enough. Very reasonable prices compared to others around Perth. Cars are always very clean, and the staff are super friendly. I always use them while Im in Perth and look forward to seeing them again soon.

My experience was incredibly wonderful. I didn’t have to worry about travel and my children loved the car and it was breeze. The customer service exceeds any service I’ve received from a car hire service in the world. I highly recommend this service to everyone! Go directly to ACE RENT A CAR!!! It’s worth it. Lee

Came down from England and Just hired a Hyundai for 3 weeks at Perth Albany Victoria Park office of Ace Rent A Car, just a km away from where I was staying. The staff are very friendly and the cost of the 3 weeks was the cheapest in the market with a brand new car. I travelled mostly to the south of Perth down to Albany after a week sight seeing in the area places like Denmark Walpole national park some of the taller trees in Australia, Stirling Range National Park I travelled across the wrist belt to wave rock and back. The car handled the bad roads I travelled North to the Pinnacles in the three weeks. Travelled some 3000 km. I did extra km worth 230$ but instead of charging me extra 0.28$ each km, they saved me the extra buck by only charging a 110$ by changing my km range. Very kind of them. Not greedy and believe in making relationships. Professional and helpful and very good lot of them.I will hire from them always on my trips to Perth and will suggest you all to also hire from them without worries on your holiday.

This is one of the best rental car experiences I have had hands down. I walked in and felt right at home. They were upfront about everything and even saved me some money with the miles. I would highly recommend this car company to anyone in Perth. I returned the car and they gave me many options to return. I have rented cars at a lot of places, with a lot of companies, and this one takes the cake.

We have rented a mini bus for 12 days to go around Pinnacles down to the Great Southern Region (Walpole, Denmark), WA. The mini-bus they provided us is almost new, clocking around 130 km. The vehicle is clean inside out. The best per day rate and service in the area! and nothing beats the kind gestures of the boss to discount me for the excess kilometers that I clock! 5/5 due to service, rate and vehicle conditions.

Our car was Cheap and Good quality!!Unfortunately we made a problem by an accident. I didn't speak English well but they tried to understand me and dealt it quick. We had a big holiday. They gave us another car so we can get it. We were very thankful. They're so kind and gentle!!

Wow, what an experience! My wife and I pre-booked a van hire today and could not be more satisfied.We only required the vehicle for two separate days, so not exactly a million dollar contract. (Their prices were extremely reasonable) and Commercial Services Director Ajay, completely understood our needs and patiently and professionally took us through the process - all in the space of ten minutes. We have used this company in the past and can't praise them highly enough.The very best customer service!

I really satisfied with ace. Recently i rent a 12seater commuter bus and a hyundai accent. Both are smooth.. Dealing with the staff satisfy me well. I just connect with them via fb messenger.it so easy.once u settle the dealing, they will sent you a quotation email and just click the link given once you have confirmed. Of course i will comeback and rent with them because the vehicles served is very comfortable and smooth.. Thanks ace.. See you again.

Chose Vic Park agency online on basis of reviews and proved to be a very wise choice. Ajay could not have been more helpful both at delivery and upon return. Little Toyoto did the job for two seniors and two big cases. Why stick with the multi-nationals when you can get service (with a smile) and great value from the smaller owner-operators? Many thanks Ace.
