WA Resident Fare Scheme

The Regional Airfare Zone Cap scheme is an initiative by the WA State Government in partnership with Rex.

For eligible residents, the ‘Resident Fares’ mean that they now pay only $398* for a return ticket to Perth when starting the journey from a regional city.

This includes all of the Rex services in WA linking Albany, Esperance, Carnarvon and Monkey Mia to Perth.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Permanent residents of Regional WA (not Perth or Peel),
  • Travel is for personal reasons only (not business travel or FIFO),
  • Passengers must complete a return journey into Perth, starting from a regional town.
A declaration must be made at time of booking and the details may be passed on to the WA State Government for audit and enforcement purposes.

Resident Fare benefits:
Regional residents will still be able to access fares below the Zone Cap price, such as Community Fares.

Community Fares:

The successful Community Fare scheme was launched in 2016, which saw more than 30% of passengers in WA benefiting from the scheme in 2021. For more information on the Community Fare Scheme, please see here.

Resident Fare Terms and Conditions:

Booking a Resident Fare deems acceptance of the eligibility criteria outlined in the Fare Rules.

Carriage is subject to the Conditions of Carriage:

*Zone Cap Resident Fares include airport taxes and GST. Booking/Handling Fee and Payment Method Surcharge applies. Additional charges apply for ancillaries such as extra baggage or seat selection.

The eligibility criteria and the fare class benefits are detailed above. Additional terms and conditions of the Regional Airfare Zone Cap scheme are available on the Department of Transport website, here:

Nothing in the Conditions of Carriage or the Resident Fare Rules will prevent the application of your consumer guarantees in accordance with the Australian Consumer Law.

Travel Bank is currently unavailable. You may also place your fare on hold for future use (must be used within one year of purchase date) where Travel Bank is not available.
