Although I have read other negative comments about Backpacker Car Rentals, my experience was quite the opposite. Yes the cars you pay the cheapest price for may be old-ish but hence the fact that you pay $110 a week instead of $200+ a week with rival companies hiring out new cars. I had no problems with my Hyundai Excel which I hired out for over a month and used daily. The staff couldnt be more welcoming and helpful. On a couple of occasions I outran the hire of the car and they just called me up to see if I wanted it for another week and this was not a problem. My friends and I have had several cars now from Backpacker Car Rentals, all recommending them to other people we know because they are the best around. You wont be driving around in a top of the range vehicle for such a cheap price and then again, you wont find such cheap prices anywhere else in the area. So if you are a backpacker wanting to get to see the area, or such as myself, intending to stay for a while and need a car until you buy one, then Backpacker Car Rentals are the perfect choice.
wouldnt recomment this company to anyone for reasons listed 1. Car we were given was 12 years old and falling apart 2. This company takes $500 deposit off you regardless of the age of car, I could have bought one for that. 3. Customer service is very poor. 4. when the car broke down which is expected for the age, it got towed away by the RAC, I was left at the side of the road with no way of getting home, I had to get a train and then walk 6kms to my house this was at 10pm in the evening. this company then had the cheek to call me the next day and tell me I had to pay for the RAC, even after they told me to call them. they billed me $700 They have no regard for there customers safety and fully intend in keeping your deposit by using any means possible. Under no circumstances use this con artist company!!!
I was only suppose to rent a car for a week or two until I found myself one to buy. But I ended up renting it for more than two months. so I think I liked it. There was never any problems. The lady in the office is always nice, and the times when I couldnt make it before closure to pay next week rent she was fine with it. The only bad thing was that when you are under 24 yo you have to pay an extra fee of 35 dollars every week, but I rented the car for more than two months so that was not a big problem. I was very happy with that little excel!
Ive used backpacker car rentals twice, and had great service both times. The cars arent brand new, but in my experience, reliable, tidy, and VERY reasonably priced. I also required the car for a few hours longer than the contract ran for, and the company negotiated a time with us for no extra charge, leaving the car at the compound after hours. They provide friendly and quick service, and Id recommend this company to anyone wanting a cheap/reliable runabout for around perth thats not worried about having all the latest mod-cons.
My name is Stacey and I took back a lovely rental car to Backpacker Car Rentals Their service was friendly and professional and I would highly recommend them for their prices and service and of course a great reliable vehicle. Im a frequent traveller from Darwin to Perth and will use them again and recommend to people in Darwin. Thanks very much.
If this is the same kiwi owner as a few years ago il gladly give a review...wat a pig of a man...because i had a surfboard in a bag he abused me..then wen after 6 weeks i bought the car back he looked over it for 20 mins he found a stain the size of a 10 cent piece and charged 50 bucks.......wat a scaby ignorant clown
Great deal I have had a car from Backpacker car rentals for 1 months! Super friendly staff. The only thing is that you have a weekly limit a little bit annoying but ok if you budget! Would def recommend them! :) Lisa

Cars too old, 180,000km+, Should be in car wreck instead of renting out. Dont risk your life and money, not to mention the discomfort. You can get better deal in the city for weekly rent. Highly not recommended.
Great service! really affordable cars in good condition and great on fuel. Thank you for making my stay in Perth a perfect one. I would definitely come back to hire from you again and again!
These guys were awesome value for money, worked out really well for us. the allocated mileage was a bit low for what we needed but over all it worked out really well, top notch service :)
