Important information about Melbourne car hire

A vacation or trip to Melbourne would be considered incomplete if you didn’t visit some of the iconic attractions, such as The National Gallery of Victoria and Eureka Skydeck. Most of these places are easily reachable by car, so the best thing would be to plan for hired cars in Melbourne. With a rental car, you will be able to easily navigate the West Gate Freeway, which connects most of the major roads in Melbourne. On matters to do with parking, there are a good number of free parking spaces around the Melbourne CBD, but as you would expect, they are local favourites, and it can be very hard to find an open one, especially during peak hours. However, there are plenty of other parking lots around Melbourne, and it shouldn’t be difficult to find a place to leave your Melbourne car rentals. There are approximately seven car hire locations in Melbourne.

The Melbourne CBD is considered by most as one of the most walkable cities in Australia alongside Brisbane. However, some of the city’s suburbs have been ranked as the least walkable places by the same metric. In light of that, you’d be better off getting a cheap car rental in Melbourne if you plan on visiting the city’s suburbs where most of the attractions are located, including the famous Albert Park Circuit and the Yarra River. Also, rental cars in Melbourne give you a little bit of flexibility as well as convenience because you can travel anywhere you want at any time. This isn’t the case for the public transport system despite being highly rated in Australia. Lastly, there are plenty of rental car locations, and you can get any type of rental that you would want, including electric and luxury rental cars.

Before you book hired cars in Melbourne, be sure to observe the different traffic laws in the city. The major difference in traffic laws in Melbourne is the fact that the people drive on the left side of the road and most cars are right-hand drives. For that reason, you need to be extra careful when driving around the streets of Melbourne, especially if you’re used to driving on the right side. You also need to know the speed limits on the central roads so that you don’t receive an easily avoidable fine. Lastly, you need to acquaint yourself with the hook turn, which is a unique turn where trams also cross the intersection. It would be better if you did some reading about traffic laws in Melbourne to avoid any trouble.

To be able to get hired cars in Melbourne, you will be required to produce a valid driving license with a photo ID. Most rental companies generally accept English-language driving licenses, and for those with a license written in another language, you will have to produce an International Driving Permit. Any licenses shown when renting a car in Melbourne must have an expiration date well after the rental agreement period.
