Margaret River Guide

Margaret River is quickly becoming one of the most famous towns in Australia. Located nearly 300 kilometers south of Perth, Margaret River is one of the premier wine producing regions in Australia. Thanks to the wine production facilities and vineyards, as well as the picturesque setting, Margaret River plays host to nearly 1 million tourists each year. The Margaret River Wine Region was once known primarily for its agricultural products and timber production, but in recent decades, Australia's wine producers have taken center stage, rivaling the popularity of some French and American producers.

Margaret River lies along a river of the same name, and while it is said to be a coastal city, Margaret River actually lays 10 kilometers inland. The Margaret River extends nearly 50 kilometers inland from the town. Margaret River is popular not only with wine enthusiasts, but with naturalists, as well. Because of the unique landscape of the area, many species of flora and fauna can be found there. Cavers also have an excellent time around the Margaret River region, simply because of the hundreds of large caves found in the area. While many of these are only open by permit, there are several that are easily accessible to the public.

Visitors to the area can do a proper car hire and tour the surrounding wine producing region which, although it accounts for under 5 percent of the wine grapes grown in Australia, does manage to produce more than 25 percent of the country's premium wines. There are many large wine producing interests in the area, but they don't hold exclusive rights. There are smaller, artisanal wine producers in the area, which while producing much lower quantities of wine do manage a brisk business because of their effective marketing strategies.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
