Perth Airport Campervan Hire

Can I rent a campervan at the airport in Perth?

While there are no RVs available directly at the terminal at Perth Airport (PER), there are several campervan rental companies within 1-10 miles.

The depots are easily accessible by taxi or Uber.

The Self-drive Holiday in Perth

There are plenty of reasons to explore Perth in an RV. You may be looking for an affordable way to travel or want the freedom to explore at your own pace.

By booking through Camper Champ, you’ll save yourself the time and hassle of researching every company individually. Instead, we compare over 20 campervan rental brands in Australia, giving you one handy online tool to find you the best deals.

Traveling in and around Perth in a campervan has several advantages over a car rental and hotel combination:

  • Cost-effective: Your accommodation and transport come rolled into one. Campsites cost a fraction of a WA hotel, and you’ll have your own wheels to explore on a whim.

  • Convenience: The best regional campsites reside alongside breathtakingly beautiful natural attractions. Just whip open your curtains in the morning to soak up those staggering views.

  • Self-catering: Every reputable RV rental company kits their vehicles out with a kitchen—at the very minimum, you’ll get a gas cooker, fridge, countertop, and sink. Enjoy impromptu picnics with amazing views and save cash by not eating out.

  • Freedom: Conventional travel means planning your itinerary and reserving hotels before you go. But with a camper, you set your own schedule. That kind of flexibility is priceless.

  • Onboard amenities: Opt for a fully decked-out campervan, and you’ll have all the luxuries of home at your fingertips. Bigger rigs come with an onboard toilet and shower; some even have 4G modems and flatscreen TVs. No more roughing it when adventuring out bush.

When driving around Perth in a campervan rental, remember these helpful tips:

  1. All traffic moves on the left-hand side.
  2. Seatbelts and child restraints are compulsory.
  3. Carry a valid driver's license when traveling.
  4. Drive clockwise on roundabouts.
  5. There are no toll roads in Perth.
  6. Watch out for wildlife, especially around dawn, dusk and when traveling at night. Country roads and long stretches of the open road are notorious for crossing wildlife.
  7. The blood alcohol content limit in WA is 0.05%.
  8. Default speed limits in Western Australia are 34 mph for built-up residential areas and up to 68 mph for roads in rural areas unless indicated otherwise. School zones also have speed limits reduced to 25 mph during certain hours on school days. Always pay attention to posted speed limit signs and adjust your speed accordingly.

Travel Tips for Perth

How can you save money on a campervan vacation in Perth?

Motorhome travel offers a cost-effective alternative to renting a car and staying in hotels. And with a bit of thriftiness, you can reduce your expenses even further.

Here are our top tips to save money on a campervan vacation:

  1. Choose your vehicle wisely: RV rentals range from bare basic cheap campervans to luxe motorhomes with flashy mod cons. If you’re happy to forgo a few bells and whistles, a budget-orientated vehicle will save you big on the daily rate.

  2. Book early: Like all commodities, supply and demand dictate the price of a rented van. Securing your vehicle ahead of time will save you a significant sum, especially when traveling during peak season when demand soars. Look out for those early bird specials to find the best discount on campervan rentals.

  3. Avoid backtracking: Fuel is a significant expense, especially for adventurers rolling in a large, diesel-guzzling rig. Instead, use the map application of your choice to plan an efficient route. You’ll spend less time driving and more time kicking back.

  4. Use free camps where possible: While some free camping is available in the region, opportunities are few and far between. Nonetheless, it’s worth taking full advantage of your free camps when they arise to whittle down accommodation costs. In addition, roadside rest areas are a godsend for thrifty explorers.

  5. Look for low-cost campsites: A decked-out RV park will run you $35-$50 per night in WA, adding up quickly over an extended trip. Give these pricey parks a miss and opt for basic low-cost campsites instead—you usually get fewer neighbors and better views, too.

  6. Tee up some travel buddies: Fuel, national park fees, and RV rental will cost the same, no matter the size of your crew. Enlisting an adventurous travel buddy or two will slash the per-person spend. Try posting your plans on social media if you don’t know anyone keen to tag along (always thoroughly pre-vet potential travel pals).

  7. Give peak season a miss: RV parks and camper rentals skyrocket when there’s high demand, so consider traveling off-peak to get better bang for your buck. Moreover, you’ll get to explore stunning locales without the thick tourist crowds. Christmas, New Year, Easter, and WA school vacations are the priciest times to travel.

  8. Self-cater: Eating out is expensive in Australia, especially in the mineral-rich state of WA. Cooking your meals will significantly reduce your expenses—good thing you’ve got a motorhome rental with an in-built kitchen on hand.

When is the best time to go campervanning in Perth?

Spring and fall offer the most comfortable temperatures for exploring the region in a motorhome rental.

During fall, expect average temps to range between 57°F - 79°F. The nights might sometimes drop below 50°F, though rainfall is rare. Expect similar balmy temps in spring, typically between 54°F - 73°F. Spring also brings WA’s colorful wildflowers to life. Around 12,000 pastel-hued species bloom around the state, and there’s ample technicolored glory to admire within easy reach of Perth.

Summer is a popular time to visit, but you can expect to encounter oppressive heat. While the average temperature ranges from 64°F - 86°F, it’s not uncommon to experience scorching 95°F (or even 104°F+) days. If your rig has A/C in the cabin, consider booking powered sites to beat the heat.

Hiking and other non-aquatic activities become unpleasant when the temperature soars. Moreover, many national parks and campsites close during high bushfire risk. Instead, consider visiting southern towns like Esperance and Albany, where the summers are milder.

On the bright side, a gusty offshore breeze (aka the Fremantle Doctor) helps keep coastal areas cool during sweltering summer afternoons.

Winter in Perth is relatively cool; average temperatures range from 46°F - 66°F. However, the region receives much of its rainfall in winter, which puts a damper on the campervanning experience.

How long do you need in Perth for an RV vacation?

Many travelers see the highlights of the South West in around 7 days, taking in spectacular coastal towns, world-class vineyards, and thickly forested woodlands.

A week is also sufficient for the return trip to Kalbarri National Park, famous for its gorgeous ochre-hued gorges. Pit stops at quaint coastal hamlets like Jurien Bay, Cervantes, and Lancelin help break up the drive.

Venturing south-east to Denmark, Albany, and Bremer Bay, you will need to factor in a few more days. Many Perthians go to Esperance during the school vacations, home to Australia's most incredible beaches. Allow at least two weeks to justify the 8-hour one-way drive.

Allow at least two weeks to venture north to hotspots like the Coral Coast and Shark Bay. Longer excursions to Broome and Kimberly demand 2-4 weeks, and a one-way rental negates the need to make the arduous 24-hour road trip back home.

Parking a Campervan in Perth

Where are some of the best places to park an RV in Perth?

Parking and congestion can become tiresome in more built-up areas, especially Northbridge, Freemantle, and the Perth CBD. As a result, many travelers leave their rig at their RV park (or a nearby residential suburb) and use public transport to visit busy inner-city areas.

Free on-street parking is available in most residential suburbs in the Perth metropolitan area. Always abide by local parking signs.

Parking fees apply as you get closer to built-up areas, especially Fremantle and the CBD. Prices range from $4 - $10 per hour, which you pay at an electronic parking station or via a mobile app. Most car parks along the Swan River and inner-city beaches also charge a similar hourly fee.

If you'd like to spend a day relaxing by the Swan, some riverfront car parks offer fee-free all-day parking. For example, the South Perth Hurlingham Car Park is free and suitable for small to medium-sized vans—you get a stunning skyline and river view, too.

Down in Fremantle, the Main South Beach Parking lot has a generous 4-hour free-parking limit, perfect for spending a day with your toes in the sand. Just move your rig if you need more time.

The City of Perth Council offers $11 all-day parking at numerous locations around the city. Some spots are suitable for large RVs.

Where can you park a campervan overnight in Perth?

Although state laws don't prohibit overnight stays in WA, most local councils have anti-overnight camping by-laws. Enforcement is lax in the capital but stringent in popular tourist destinations and coastal towns. Think twice about overnighting in a non-designated area, or you could wake up with a fine.

The closest free camp to Perth is Jarrahdale, a 50-minute drive from the CBD. About a dozen paid RV parks reside in Fremantle and the outer suburbs. Perth Central RV Park is the closest to the CBD.

The Perth Hills Discovery Center (campground open weekends only), Walyunga National Park, and Lake Leschenaultia have spectacular low-cost campgrounds near the city.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of licence do you need to hire a campervan in Perth?

A full and valid class C (car) driving licence is all you need to hire most campervans and motorhomes in WA. Learner, provisional, and probationary licences are not accepted. Most companies only rent vehicles to drivers aged 21 years or older. As a result, travellers under 25 need to pay additional fees to cover elevated insurance premiums. Overseas residents need an English translation of a comparable driver’s licence or a valid International Driver's Permit (IDP).

Do I have to pay a bond (security deposit) when renting my vehicle?

When renting a vehicle, it is standard to be charged a bond (security deposit), also known as ‘excess’, which is the amount the renter is liable to cover in the event of an accident or damage to the vehicle. The bond amount fluctuates based on the insurance package selected at the time of rental and is charged and debited on the renters’ credit or debit card.

Is free camping allowed?

Free camping in Perth is only allowed in designated areas, and overnight parking is generally prohibited.

There are plenty of campervan parks around Perth. Some popular choices include Perth Central Caravan Park, Advent Park, and Riverview Tourist Park (near Margaret River).

Yes, a large number of companies allow for one-way rentals. Our comparison tool will show you availability on your preferred route and automatically factor in any one-way fees charged by the supplier.

Can I pick up or drop off my RV on a public holiday?

Be aware that starting or ending your trip on a public holiday will limit your choice of available suppliers and may increase total rental costs.
