Top tips for hiring a car in Melbourne

  • For travelers with flights to Melbourne, you may find yourself landing at Melbourne Airport, Essendon Airport, or Avalon Airport. Luckily for would-be car renters, all three airports feature on-site hire counters. For Melbourne Airport, the hire car center is found on the ground floor of the airport in Terminal T123’s parking garage. In Essendon Airport and Avalon Airport, visitors can find the hire counters in the respective main terminal buildings.
  • No trip to Australia is complete without a few road trips. Fortunately for travelers renting a car in Melbourne, many of Australia’s wonders are within a short drive of the city. Some of the top spots to visit include Yarra Valley and its wonderful wineries, and Phillip Island, where you will find some of Australia’s most famous animals such as koalas, wallabies, and even penguins.
  • Drivers new to Melbourne should be aware of the city’s rush hour traffic jams, which run from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. However, even though congestion can be quite severe in Melbourne during those times, some smart navigation and route planning can help to mitigate the situation. For instance, it pays to avoid Punt Road and Princes Street in the central downtown area during rush hour.
  • Besides driving on the left side of the road, drivers in Melbourne should keep their eyes open for trams and, in particular, Melbourne’s famed hook turns. Hook turns are right turns that are made in the left lane because a tram is also crossing the intersection. Signage will be posted to indicate to drivers when hook turns are present and where to turn.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Melbourne?

While Melbourne may not have as narrow of streets as you would see in many European cities, the roads can still be a bit compact compared to roads in the U.S. Thus, travelers renting cars would be best off sticking to a compact or smaller vehicle, especially when taking streetside parallel parking into consideration.

What's the speed limit in Melbourne?

Speed limits in Melbourne, and in the state of Victoria in general, run between 40 km/h (25 mph) and 50 km/h (31 mph) on city roads, 100 km/h (62 mph) on rural roads and 110 km/h (68 mph) on highways and motorways.

How are gas prices in Melbourne?

Petrol prices, while not extremely high in Melbourne, are by no means cheap when compared to the average prices seen in many cities in the U.S. In general, drivers will see an average cost of AU$1.40 ($1) per liter, which comes out to about AU$5.29 ($3.78) per gallon.

Where are the best places to park in Melbourne?

Streetside parking in greater Melbourne is fairly available but, once you get into the central business district, parking can become fairly scarce. Because of this, it is highly recommended that drivers park in one of the many parking garages dispersed across Melbourne CBD. Drivers should note that if you plan on doing a bit of shopping while you are downtown, you can often validate your parking ticket in a nearby store to earn a parking ticket refund.
