KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Tullamarine

  • Hire a car for your visit to Tullamarine and you’ll have the flexibility to complete day trips throughout the state of Victoria. Opting for cheap car hire in Tullamarine will allow you to drive to Dandenong Range National Park, which is a rainforest about 47 km east of Tullamarine. The You Yangs Regional Park, around 49 km southwest of Tullamarine, is another great day trip that will get you out into the Australian outdoors. The coast can be conveniently reached in around half an hour, with a drive south to Point Cook Coastal Path.
  • If you are considering Tullamarine car hire, it is important to take note of the drink driving laws in Victoria. As with the rest of Australia, the legal blood alcohol concentration is 0.05% for car and motorcycle drivers who are fully licensed – even if you are driving a hire car. The police in Victoria carry out extensive breath testing of drivers and you should ensure that you are below the limit to avoid penalties and fines. There are strong repercussions for those who are caught drink driving, from monetary fines to losing licences, car impounding and imprisonment in extreme cases.
  • Tullamarine is conveniently located close to Melbourne Airport (MEL), so this is an easy place for you to collect and drop off your car. You can hop onto the Tullamarine Freeway (M2) for around 5 km and you’ll be in the suburb of Tullamarine. Alternatively, you can avoid the freeway and opt to take Airport Drive, which will take slightly longer but the traffic should be less congested.
  • Make the most of suburban Tullamarine with a hire car that’ll let you explore Melbourne’s city and northern regions. Tullamarine doesn’t have a direct public transport connection to the CBD, with a trip to the city requiring a combination of buses and trains. A hire car will allow you to drive to popular attractions such as Cliff Harvey Lagoon Reserve and Melbourne Zoo in less than 15min, while bus journeys average closer to 1h.
  • The majority of hire companies, including Avis, Budget, Hertz and Thrifty, have their offices across the walkway from Terminal 2 at Melbourne International Airport (MEL). Europcar has their reception desk underneath PARKROYAL Hotel across from Terminal 3, while Enterprise have their office in the Arrivals Hall of Terminal 1. Vehicles are within walking distance in the T123 car park.
  • There are several railway level crossings around Tullamarine and you need to be careful to adhere to the boom gates while driving; don’t cross over the tracks until the sirens have stopped ringing. The Tullamarine Fwy is a toll road and if you plan on using it, you should check that your hire car has an electronic tag. Hook turns requiring drivers to turn right from the left lane are common in Melbourne’s CBD. Enter the intersection slowly and wait at the painted white line for the lights to turn orange before turning.
  • Peak-hour traffic is worst in Tullamarine from 07:00–09:30 and 14:00–17:00. Congestion can bank up significantly along major arterial roads Tullamarine Fwy and Western Ring Rd travelling inbound (towards the CBD) in the morning and outbound in the evening. It’s best to avoid these bottlenecks during these periods and use alternate routes, such as Pascoe Vale Rd. Melbourne can experience dense clouds of fog that limit visibility on roads; remember to use headlights and reduce speed if driving in these conditions.
  • Book your car hire in Tullamarine at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Tullamarine are around 27% cheaper than other car types, on average

Drop off in CBD could have been better explained. We called the hotline and was read what was available online. Perhaps more descriptive / photographic instructions would have made it easier. We went round and round the carpark looking for the drop box.

The Car was great and the service and shuttle good. The Insurance excess policy from Prosura was a joke and was not accepted by Turnballs, therefore i had no excess cover in place for the duration of the hire.

Pros:

I got a confirmation a few days prior to pickup, with instructions on how to catch the shuttle once we reached MEL airport. The pickup from airport, delivery of the car, and the return was as smooth as possible. We rented a 12-seater and the car itself was very good and clean.
