Perth Airport Taxis, Car Rental, Bus, Shuttle and Transportation Services
Perth Airport has multiple modes of transportation available to move to and from the Airport that will suit your preferences and your budget. Currently, there are three types of transportation:
Taxis are available in Terminals 1, 2, 3, and 4. There are also taxi ranks on Valentine road which serve both Cobham and Skippers Aviation passengers.
The fares going to Perth Central Business District (CBD) start at AUD$38 (AUD$76 return), but can increase to as much as AUD$155 if you’re planning to go to Mandurah. Please take note of the AUD$3 fee that is added to the fare which goes to providing better taxi infrastructure.
We recommend a taxi if you plan to go from point A to point B and then stay at point B. If you’re in Perth on vacation and plan to travel around, we recommend opting for Perth car rental services instead.
Perth Airport Car Rental
Car rental counters from Budget, Avis, Europcar, RedSpot, and Thrifty can be found on the ground floor of the International Terminal (Terminal 1) so passengers from Terminal 2 will need to take the short walk to Terminal 1 to pick up their rental car.
Terminals 3 and 4 have car rental counters on the ground floor near the Terminal 3 baggage collection area. Here, you can choose from rental brands such as AVIS, Europcar, Budget, RedSpot, Thrifty, and Hertz.

A one-way ticket costs $15 and there is no need to book - just purchase a ticket from the driver and you are good to go.
Connect also transfers passengers from the International Terminal (Terminal 1) to the Domestic Terminal and vice versa. Just take the free terminal shuttle which operates 24/7. For more information on public transport in Perth visit Trans Perth here.
You only need to make use of two major highways to get you around the majority of Perth and the Central City Area. These are the Great Eastern Highway and the Tonkin Highway.
To go to the Great Eastern Highway, take Brearley Avenue which you can access via Terminals 3 and 4. Go left to keep going towards Fremantle and Perth’s southern suburbs or exit to the Shepperton Road to get into the Central Business District.
If you want to take Tonkin Highway, take the Great Eastern and exit right immediately. Doing so will take you to Reid Highway and Perth’s northern suburbs. You can then take the exit at Guildford Road and head towards the Central Business District.
If you’re coming from Terminals 1 or 2 and want to go to central Perth, you can follow Horrie Miller Drive and turn right into the Tonkin Highway, where you have to exit the Great Eastern Highway immediately. From here, take the exit at Guildford road to get to Perth’s Central Business District.
