Road Trip Hints and Tips for Western Australia

There has never been a better time to arrange minivan hire in Perth and set out on a road trip. Our vehicles are highly affordable, and petrol hasn’t been this cheap in years. For those of you who are considering planning the WA road trip of a lifetime, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

 

  • Be Flexible.road and horizon
    This is probably the most important bit of advice anyone can give you for your next road trip. In fact, flexibility is the reason that road trips are so much fun in the first place. Rather than having to put yourself through the paces of a package tour or stick only to those places that are accessible to public transport, you can set out to explore anywhere the roads will take you. But you’ll have even more fun if you remain open to the unplanned stops and excursions. You never know what lies just around the bend!

 

  • Get a Real Map.
    Sure, it seems a bit old-fashioned to bother with a map when you can just switch on the GPS for your directions. But the great thing about a map is that you can take it with you into the hotel or lay it out on the table at a roadside diner. Half the fun of taking a road trip is charting your progress as you go. It’s also worth bringing a marker so you can mark up your map in the process. By the time it’s over, the map will be a souvenir in and of itself.

 

  • Pack an Emergency Kit.
    Accidents happen, and it’s best to be prepared. Of course, if you take advantage of our mini bus hire in Perth, WA, your vehicle will already be equipped with the basic emergency items that you need. And we’re also standing by to help you arrange roadside assistance if necessary. Beyond that, if you’re wondering what extras you might want to take with you in the case of an emergency, consult this comprehensive checklist from Popular Mechanics.

 

  • Take Your Friends.
    There’s nothing better than setting out on the open road with a group of friends. Friends make road trips more fun, and travelling with a group also means you can split the already low price of petrol several ways. If you’re taking advantage of 8-seater car rental in Perth, it’s difficult to imagine a more economical way to see the countryside. And wherever you venture whilst out on the road, you’ll have plenty of people there to keep you company.

 

  • Explore the Coral Coast.
    This is, without a doubt, the ultimate road trip route to enjoy in Western Australia. You can arrange budget car rental in Perth and drive all the way to Exmouth and back, stop off to hike, fish and swim along the way. Even if you drive several hundred kilometres every day, this entire route takes more than a week to complete. But of course, you don’t have to complete the entire drive to enjoy this route.

 

And as always, if you have any questions about our car hire services, feel free to contact us. We can help you take the first step toward planning a memorable WA road trip.

Ajay is a very honest and lovely man. I’ve hired from these guys twice and they always look after me. The last time I hired for a week as my car was booked for a week in the repairs but fixed after one day. Ajay offered me a refund or credit for the unused days. Something I’ve never heard of. Thank you Ajay. Ace car rentals Victoria Park.
