Perth Airport Car Rental
Perth Airport is located along the western coast of Australia, about 10 km from the city centre, and with its 15 million passengers every year represents the fourth most important in the country.
The black swan is its symbol, due to the presence (in close proximity to it) of a pond inhabited for decades by these splendid birds, that attracts tourists and inhabitants.
The airport manages mainly internal flights, guaranteeing continuous connections to Sidney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane, whereas the main international flights are those which connects Perth to Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai or Auckland. There are no flights from Europe, so a route from this continent implies intermediate stops. Perth Airport has 4 terminals linked by a shuttle service running every 20 minutes.

In particular, there are various lounge areas, shops, banks and relax areas. The whole airport is covered by a free Wi-Fi connection, exploitable after the registration to the service.
The city centre is easily reachable in about 20 minutes, following the driving directions, thanks to the rental car picked up directly at Perth Airport and booked on RentalUp before departure.
