There is no better way to explore a city than by car.
Public transportation is certainly convenient but the experience is often marred by long waits and sudden delays. Whereas when driving your own car you can leave anytime you want and go straight to your destination. When travelling to a new city, you will definitely want to hire a car to get around town.
But with so many different rental companies available, how do you go about choosing the right one? Here are some tips to help you in the right direction.
Travelling is already expensive enough once you factor in all other costs. If you are on a budget, then your first concern is likely how much a rental will cost you. Costs typically depend on the vehicle you decide to rent and whether you add excess insurance. At Ace Rent A Car, our prices are extremely competitive compared to other rental companies such as Avis and Hertz. In fact, you will find out prices to be one of the lowest in the industry without compromising on quality.
Think about the car you want to rent.
A luxury coupe is undoubtedly a great way to enjoy the open road. But it’s not exactly a practical choice when travelling with a family and tons of luggage. A better option would be an SUV or a mini bus. When choosing a rental company, be sure to check that they have the type of vehicle you are considering. It’s also a good to check what features are available (e.g. GPS, CD player, etc.) and their luggage capacity.
Car Hire Excess Insurance
In the event you get into an accident you may be held liable for an initial amount which can be several thousand dollars. Car hire excess insurance is an optional policy that greatly reduces your liability. Adding this to your rental is always a good idea as adding a small daily fee reduces that excess to hundreds instead of thousands of dollars. The cost for excess insurance typically varies depending on the vehicle you choose. Be sure to check for this when choosing a rental company.
Finally, you also want to consider the location of the rental company. Obviously you would want a rental that is relatively close where you will be. That way you can easily return the vehicle without any hassles or incurring a late penalty. Ace Rent A Car is conveniently located only about 10 minutes from the CBD and 15 minutes from the Perth airport. From the moment you walk through our doors, you can expect professional and personalised services.
If you are looking to hire a vehicle for your next trip, we can help. Our extensive fleet includes compact cars, vans, mini buses, and even utes. Or if you have any other questions before renting, we will be happy to provide assistance. Contact us today to get started with car hire in Perth for an upcoming trip.

Just had a 5 week hire of a Landcruiser Sahara. Excellent customer service and very helpful. Great experience, would definitely recommend!
Great staff and highly organised, had our bus out for us before we arrived. Worked in with us regarding our return time. Owner of the business dropped us off at the airport. Can’t wait to return to Perth so I can use Ace Car Rentals Victoria Park again. Thank you guys.Sophie Curlewis Yass
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
The best car rental company I have ever rented with through all my travels- friendly staff, new clean cars and amazing prices (the best in market from my study on pricing in perth). Will hire with them every time Ofcourse!
Awesome! We rented a car for 3 days. Price was cheap for a quality car. Staff very friendly and helpful, couldn’t get a better service! Definetly will go back.Highly recommended to anyone that wants to rent a car.
I arrived in perth on a limited budget only to find my car was still Darwin and another three weeks to arrive,Ace rented myself a hyundai at what must be the lowest priced rental I've ever had,it helped me greatly and didnt hiry my budget to badly and all i had to do was advise by text to continue renting until my car eventually tirnrd up.Highly recommend their services and if stuck again will be the first place to turn to.
6 adults (all 6foot plus) 150kgs of luggage, many kms over 12 days.The imax was perfect drives good clean and so much room for long legs and baggage.Lovely customer service.Will recommend highly to friends and family.
Extremely competitive pricing and great service staff! From the booking enquiries to the physical collection of the car, it has a been great experience throughout. The free shuttle provided to and from Perth Airport is a big big plus! Everyone should really consider Ace for their rentals. Will be recommending to all my friends!
Such an outstanding organization! Everything they promised, they delivered. And the price/value beats every other company I researched to rent a car. I will recommend them to family and friends and will always use their business whenever the need arises. Thank you Ace Rent A Car!
Friendly staff, great service, clean and reliable car. I rented through this company twice in a fortnight, best value on car rental that I could find and a quick and easy booking process both online and over the phone! Would highly recommend and will definitely use this company again myself!!
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.
Booked a car over the christmas period. Everything you could ask for, quick efficient quality service. Although not a big name brand, I will have no worries about using Ace cars again if I ever need a rental car in Perth.
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.
I came to visit Perth from the UK and needed a car ace were highly recommended by friends and they did not disappoint at all.The guys were friendly, knew their stuff and were very helpful nothing was too much trouble.The car was great to drive and comfortable we enjoyed it without any problems at all.The main reason we had them recommended was they are so reasonable and that was also the case.In other word 1st class service I will use again and I recommend to anyone who wants a car
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!!
Great cars along with great service, I choose these guys every time I visit Perth. Easy booking system, Friendly & very helpful staff. All modern, nice, clean vehicles.5 Star !Thanks Ace Rent a Car- See you next year ! ;))
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.
