Is Perth Super Expensive?

What About Limo Hire Perth Services?

It’s been constantly reported that Perth is one of the most expensive cities on the planet, however is it just Perth Limo hire services that come under fire, or is it other commodities and services as well?  An interesting article has recently appeared on Betoota Advocate that highlights a Perth man who is excited to only be paying 11 pounds for a pint of beer.  Now to put that into local currency terms, that equates to over $18 Australian dollars.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA IS HOME to the highest rates of ‘wanderlust’ in the country, prompting the youth to travel far and wide before they return home to roost.

One of the main reasons why young Western Australians yearn for the unknown is the prohibitive cost of getting blind in the Perth, their capital and the most isolated city on the planet.

Despite having locally-made delicacies such as Emu Export, Little Creatures and San Cisco, the cost of those products is grossly inflated by the relatively high income of residents thanks to the mining boom.

Arriving in London last week, 24-year-old traveller Mark Garrity has found a place to crash on his brother’s mate’s floor in the north-eastern suburb of Chalk Farm.

“It’s pretty flash around here. There’s a shit tonne of Russians here and they’re all rich. Just like all the Chinamen back home, they’re rolling in it,” he explained. “Speaking of China, I got blinder than Chinaman staring into the sun last night and it cost me less than a night out in Freo. What a pissa.”

Like most people under 30, the Tame Impala fan is almost completely broke and shouldn’t really be travelling in the first place.

That valid point prompted him to duck down to his brother’s mate’s local dive bar, The Garden Arms in nearby working-class Hampstead Heath.

“I tried to be sensible and order a pint of Stella, you know, because that’s what domestic abusers drink over here because it’s cheap as chips and the bloke came back and asked for 11 quid,” he said.

“I almost fainted! How cheap! You know how much a pint of Bush Chook costs in a flash bar in Perth? At the Royal Freshie in Peppermint Grove, they’d pick you up and rattle every last cent out of you for a Little Creatures stubby,”

“Then they’d say you’re too pissed to have another one.”

Mark says he has plans to head back to Perth one day, but that will be the day he hangs up his drinking jacket for good. Another than the odd pint after work or a weekend getaway to Margaret River, he says sinking tins in Perth is just too expensive.

Perception of expensive is an interesting topic, because at the end of the day, what you purchase is sometimes worth a whole lot more than face value.  What is it worth to you to have a limousine company that understands all of the little things that make your wedding day absolutely flawless.  What is it worth to have a limousine hire experience where your are treated like a rockstar.  These are things that can’t be measured in mere dollar terms.  Experiences are priceless so ensure when it comes time to book your limo hire Perth service, you do your due diligence about your limo company and their level of personal care.
