Car hire in Melbourne

As the cultural capital of Australia, the massive city of Melbourne is one of the country's top tourist destinations. Found on the shores of Port Philips Bay and carved up by the Yarra River, the city is a great place for a self-driving tour. There are plenty of car rental options, and many big name companies have depots here. Compare cheap car hire in Melbourne with us to get the best quotes online.

Why to visit

Victoria has always been a favoured holiday destination among many, with Melbourne singled out as its most magnificent city thanks to its Victorian-era architecture, impressive museums and fantastic shopping opportunities, giving an eclectic mix of old and new. It acts as a great base for those looking to discover the entire region, with self-drive the most practical way to get out and about and visit all corners of this beautiful state.


Melbourne Airport and Avalon Airport serve the city, with Melbourne Airport also being the main gateway into Victoria. Avalon Airport is a domestic hub sitting 37 miles southwest of Melbourne. The city can easily be explored by tram, bus or bicycle, but for those who really want to get a feel for this massive city, arranging car rental in Melbourne is recommended. This will also allow you to see more than just the centre, as there are some stunning surrounding areas just waiting to be explored. The roads in Victoria are some of the best in the country, making self-drive holidays fun and easy.

What to see and do

Organising Melbourne car hire will allow you to make the 30-minute drive to Victoria's Open Range Zoo, where animals from Africa, Asia and Australia can be seen. A drive southwest to Geelong will take you to the scenic Great Ocean Road, a must for all touring around the state by vehicle. Wine connoisseurs should not miss a trip to Yarra Valley, which is less than an hour's drive away. Heading northwest will lead you to the magnificent Grampians National Park, known for its hiking trails, wildlife and picturesque landscapes.

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 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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
