Safe2Travel do not do visa application for u unless u puchase the airtix or any packages with them. As for Chariot, if u're applying visa for at least 3 people.. they can charge u cheaper at $8/per pax. Bigger groups will be even cheaper. so u might wanna call & chk with them
As for transport, u can chk with the hotel if they provide free shuttle service from the airport, cos some of them do. Otherwise, just take the airport shuttle service. It's cheaper than taking a cab.
And yes, if u're bringing along any food items & medication, u need to declare them. Just tick on the appropriate item category in the declaration card will do.
As for exchange rate, if u're staying or working near Tanjong Pagar, u can chkout Perfect Exchange locted at Tanjong Pagar Plaza. It's just directly opp. Amara Hotel. Their rates are generally better than most other money changers, incl. those at The Arcade.
ermm...for transport i dun think my hotel provides tats why wanna find out about wats so gd about the airport shuttle coz if i take a cab it cost about AUD30 n it drive us direct to the hotel...the shuttle service is like a big bus tat carries many passengers n u need to wait for ur turn to drop off. and the price is like AUD15 per pax...tats means its AUD30 for me n hubby leh. but one thing gd is tat if u book a return trip then u gt guarantee transport back to airport lor..
A cab from the airport to city centre will cost ard A$30-$40. But the Perth Airport Shuttle costs only A$24 per pax for a return trip, so it's definitely the cheapest option. U can chkout their website at www.perthshuttle.com.au for more info. It's only a matter of price vs convenience.. so it's really up to u
i've enquired...perth shuttle return trip is $30 per pax. cab is $33(based on a tripadvisor member's post in Jul07, he stayed in the hotel we'll be staying). tats why i wanted to know why wld anyone wanna take the bus lor...anyway thanks for ur reply, i'm going to take a cab instead
Wow, looks like the price has increased.. cos one of my friends took the shuttle few mths back & it costs only $24 per pax for a return trip. Either that, it cld also be a promotional fare at that time cos she went during the winter season. Will hv to chk with her again. Anyway, based on the fare u quoted, taking a cab still costs slightly more than taking the shuttle for a return trip. But as I mentioned earlier, it's really up to individual. Since the difference is only a few bucks, why not enjoy the comfort of a cab then?
We got our accommodation thru http://www.discoverwest.com.au/ and they do provide complimentary one way airport shuttle service (airport to our apartment) for some of the hotels/apartments. Some may also include a half day city tour.
It's a great savings for my family, 2 adults and 3 kids! haha
Anyone went to perth during the month of Mar?
How is the weather like? anyone care to share the breakdown of the cost for air tix, accommodation, car rental? Also the itineraty as well since we intend to self drive.
U can go to Australian Pinnacle Tours. They're a v. established tour agency & tour specialist in Western Australia. They also hv a wide range of 1/2 & full day tours available. Hv joined them 5 yrs back on my trip to Perth & visited places like Albany, Margaret River & Pinnacles. Their guides are v. experienced & friendly & their coaches are also luxury 5 star coaches, v. comfy. Overall, was a great experience! U can visit www.pinnacletours.com.au to find out more.

Yup, prices have definitely increased over yrs.. but even though it's more ex now, it's still worth every cent coz they really live up to their reputation, so it's really 'yi fen qian yi fen huo'. For me, I'd rather pay more & go for a more established & experienced agency rather than choosing a cheaper or inexperienced one & not knowing what I'll be getting from it
Me and my hubby plan to go Perth during mid of May (20th - 25th) and most of the travel agency in spore only provide 1 1/2 day tour and the rest of the day will be F&E becoz we just need them to book the hotel and land tour fr us as we already hv flight flying to Perth.
Wonder do you have any suggestion on how will we be able to find a whole day tour during our trip.
Perth day tour industry is like a big monopoly. Every morning, the tour buses will go around to pick up the tourists from the various hotels, and bring everyone to an interchange. At that interchange, tourists transfer to the respective day tours buses.
It does not matter who u book the tour from, everyone will gather at the same spot, and the respective tour guide for that tour will take over. It is a very organised and convinient system.
U can check out this website for the tours available daily. Don't have to book ahead. At the hotel can make the reservations for the next day itenary.
