Location information for Ballarat Airport


Ballarat Airport car hire

The small Ballarat Aerodrome, as this airport is officially called, lies in the outer suburb of Mitchell Park, just over four miles northwest of Victoria's third-largest city with car rental in Ballarat Airport. This central Victoria airport became part of the Australian state's heritage register in 2007 and has offered pilot training since 1914.


Ballarat Airport facilities

Although this general aviation airport currently offers no commercial flights, visitors can nonetheless compare car hire offerings or visit the airport's two museums. The Ballarat Aviation Museum's aircraft displays date from the 1920s, while the Anson Museum is dedicated to the Avro Anson aircraft. The airport averages at 50 daily flight movements during winter and twice as many in summer.

Driving car hire in Ballarat Airport along the Western Freeway is the easiest way to travel into Melbourne. Attractions closer to this former gold mining town include the tranquil Lake Wendouree and the medieval Kryal Castle. Curious collections of 1970s hospital items and old motorcycles are displayed alongside the castle's Middle Ages displays. Sovereign Hill, depicting an 1850s gold mining town, is a popular theme park.


Best time to visit

Ballarat enjoys four separate seasons and average monthly temperatures approximately 3°C degrees cooler than Melbourne's due to Ballarat's higher elevation in the Great Dividing Range's foothills. The winter months from May to September can be soggy and cold but still see visitors. The city receives snow only during the heaviest winters, but flurries regularly fall on the Warrenheip and Buninyong mountains. February is the warmest month and ideal for a visit, with temperatures of around 20°C.

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 CompareCarHire.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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
