Perth Airport comprises two international terminals (T1 and T3), four domestic terminals (T1, T2, T3 and T4) and a General Aviation terminal. Terminals 1 and 2 are located in one area to the east of the runways, and Terminals 3, 4 and General Aviation are to the west and north respectively of the runways.
These two terminal complexes are separated by a 15 minute drive, linked together by a free terminal transfer bus. See below for clear instructions on how to find Perth Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car in each terminal.
Perth Airport has four primary terminals and a general aviation one. Depending on the carrier, international flights may use Terminal 1 or 2, while domestic flights can use any of the four, plus the General Aviation area. Much will depend on your carrier.
As a general rule of thumb, if you are flying internationally on a foreign carrier — or Virgin Australia — you will be using Terminal 1. If you are flying internationally with Jetstar or Qantas you could be using Terminal 1 or 3.
For domestic flights, you could be using any one of the four terminals, while if you are flying Cobham, Maroomba, Skippers, you will be using the General Aviation terminal, though note Qantas may also use this terminal for some flights. If you are flying domestically from Perth Airport, it is important that you check with your airline beforehand to find out which terminal who should go to.
While there are five terminals, these are grouped into three areas. Terminal 1 and 2, Terminal 3, 4, and the General Aviation area. These areas are located on the east, west, and north of the airport respectively and are connected by a free inter-terminal shuttle bus service which departs every 20 minutes and takes about 15 minutes.
The three terminal complexes are not walking distances from one another, although Terminal 1 and 2 are walking distance from one another, as is Terminal 3 and 4. You will need to use the shuttle service to reach the General Aviation area from any of the other terminals.
The desks for on airport car rentals are located at :
The on-airport rental cars for Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Sixt and Thrifty are located a short distance outside each terminal.
Hopefully the car rental company has left a sign with instructions or a contact number. In this situation, use the number they have provided and let them know that you have arrived or follow the directions out to the car park where a rental attendant will help you.
If there is no sign, check your booking confirmation email for a contact phone number.
If you still have no luck finding assistance, contact us. Don’t be alarmed. It’s not unusual to see unmanned desks, and rest assured there’s usually someone who can help out in the car park where the rental cars are located.
If you booked with an off-airport provider, you’ll need to catch a shuttle to the car rental provider’s premises near the airport.
Follow the car rental return signs and access the car park by taking the slip road on the right of Airport Drive. For after-hours returns, there is a key dropbox at the terminal car park booth. Please lock your car and deposit the car keys in the dropbox.
