FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Melbourne Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Melbourne

Melbourne is sophisticated and edgy all at once. Its Victorian heritage and cultural supremacy once making the second-largest city in Australia a weighty contender for capital of the entire country.

The jewel in the crown of the state of Victoria, Melbourne is a vibrant hub of style, sport, culture and food. Melbourne is a relatively compact city for Australian standards, but still sprawls out like spokes from the Central Business District. South of the CBD is the muddy but iconic Yarra River, with some new tourist attractions popping up.

But it is its inner suburbs that hum with life and produce some of the best art, music, cuisine, fashion, performance and design in the world. From the hip cafes and second-hand shops of Fitzroy to the Italian quarter in Carlton and trendy beach side St. Kilda, this is where Melbourne’s character starts to shine.

The large distances involved around Melbourne makes renting a car the obvious choice, and many providers are well-served around the city. HAPPYCAR, the online comparison portal is here to help you find the best car hire Melbourne has to offer so you can take full advantage of this dynamic city with a direct car hire Melbourne Airport also available. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific rental needs.

General Information

The iconic trams that lumber back and forth past leafy boulevards speaks to Melbourne’s history. Settled in 1835, it was carefully planned before a gold rush brought the world to its doorstep and the British colonies turned the city into a temporary capital. Since the gold rush of the 1850's there has always been a strong Chinese contingent in Melbourne. Immigration has played a vital role in its development, and continues today.

Melbourne is a true multicultural city, with large populations of Vietnamese, Lebanese, Turkish, Italian and especially Greek immigrants. This creates a food heaven where enjoying a different cuisine each night is one of Melbourne’s great treats.

Melbournians love to shop, eat and play sports and its status as the founder of Australian Rules Football, along with populating half the league with its local teams, lends an air of reverence to the sport.

The city is also known as the capital of Australian culture and for good reason. With theatrical and musical productions on every street, a prodigious food and drink culture and festivals the year round, this is where many locals and travelers flock to enjoy the best of Australia.

Using a car hire in Melbourne

While the city itself is fairly large and useful to use a car to get around, Melbourne is an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding regions, and a Melbourne car hire is a very enjoyable, affordable option.

Day trips abound around Melbourne from the quaint villages of the Dandenong Ranges, the scenic Yarra Valley with vineyards aplenty to the beach-bound Mornington Peninsula, there’s something for everyone.

The Grampians National Park, a series of tilted and eroded ranges, makes for great hiking walks and wildlife spotting. Melbourne is close to the Great Ocean Road, a beautiful coastal region that runs from South Australia to Sydney and an incredible scenic trip all year round. For a memorable day trip, try an excursion to Phillip Island, two hours south of Melbourne, to view a parade of penguins.

For trips further afield, Melbourne is nestled in between other major cities like Adelaide and also not so far away is Sydney, both excellent choices to continue your Australian adventure. There is so much to see in this part of the world, and a car rental Melbourne can help you uncover some of the many mysteries just waiting to be discovered. Book with HAPPYCAR now and make your Australian vacation dreams become a reality.
