KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bunbury

  • For our eco-friendly drivers who plan on hiring electric cars in Bunbury, the city provides EV charging stations within the city and nearby cities including East Bunbury and Eaton. Within the city, along Symmons Street, you will find the Chargefox RAC Electric Highway charging station. This station has a variety of chargers and plug types. Alternatively, you can drive roughly 2 hours to Eaton and access a variety of charging stations. These chargers range from 6kW to 50kW.
  • For you to qualify for Bunbury car hire, you need to be at least 21 years old. An underage surcharge may occur for drivers between 21 and 24 years old, who are only allowed to select vehicles from specific classes. Cheap car hire in Bunbury can only be obtained by drivers who have a full, current driver’s licence that has been valid for a minimum of twelve consecutive months. International drivers can use an International Driving Permit (IDP) to accompany their driver’s licence and passport. To pay for the hire car, drivers can use a valid credit or debit card in their name.
  • If you’re new to the roads in Western Australia, you should be aware of the gridlock that can happen during peak hours. Between 7 am and 9 am and 4 pm and 6 pm, the roads can be packed with vehicles and pedestrians. Try your best to avoid driving along Bussel Highway and State Route 20 during these peak hours to get the most out of your travel experience. You can take the Bunbury Ring Road carriageway reduces travel time for motorists along the Forrest Highway to the Bussell Highway by around 15 minutes.
  • Hiring a car in Bunbury is a good idea as the city does not have many public transport options. It is also helpful to have your own car when making trips between where you’re staying and the city's beautiful beaches for a swim. Bunbury is close to a number of other Western Australian hotspots, so making use of car hire in Bunbury will allow you to make day trips outside the city with ease.
  • Bunbury car hire is, unfortunately, not available from Bunbury’s own small airport. However, if you fly into Perth Airport (PER), there are car hire desks available in Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4. From Perth, it is roughly a 1h 55min scenic drive to Bunbury. Alternatively, there are depots for car hire in Bunbury around 3min away from Bunbury Airport (BUY) via taxi or multiple options further into the city, especially within the city centre.
  • It's important to remember when driving in Bunbury that it is a regional city; as such be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife, such as possums, wallabies and kangaroos, both for the animals' protection and your own. Additionally, while cyclists can ride on footpaths in Western Australia, pedestrians have right of way over cyclists on footpaths and cyclists have right of way over cars on roads.
  • During summer, it is important to be aware of any bushfire warnings and be prepared to limit driving or drive cautiously, as smoke from nearby fires may impede visibility. Western Australia can experience extreme weather conditions, so check weather updates to see if you need to be prepared for intense heat, rain or wind. Roads can become flooded during the wet season, and some roads may only be open to certain vehicles. Gravel roads are often used outside of cities; when driving on gravel, be sure to slow down when turning and avoid braking suddenly.

FAQs about renting a car in Bunbury

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bunbury?

    The best type of car to drive in Bunbury will depend on how you intend to use it. A 4WD will give you the best chance to drive in varying weather conditions and make day trips into more rural areas easier. However, if you’re staying within Bunbury, any type of car that fits your usual driving preference should serve you well, especially if you don’t intend on driving in harsh weather conditions.

The Staff member who rented us the car should be fired, absolutely appalled at his customer service. He treated my wife with such disrespect and malice that I will never rent here again
