If you want to see everything Melbourne has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Hertz. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own car allows you to go to the locations you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next getaway to Australia even better with a Hertz car rental.
With everything to do in and around Melbourne, you'll want to take in more than the block your hotel is on during your visit. Whether you are hoping to have dinner at that new restaurant across town or try some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own set of wheels to see and do as much as possible while on your trip. Wherever you drive to in Melbourne, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having access to your auto is a must.
We work with many of the most dependable rental car companies. Hertz has over a hundred years of car rental experience and a fleet featuring several of the most respected in the business, like Kia and Ford. With Hertz impressive history and thousands of franchises worldwide, you'll be in great hands.
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. But booking your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Hertz's policy to find out what the total cost is before you book.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Melbourne. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Melbourne trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Melbourne. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Melbourne. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to Hertz.
Melbourne definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Hertz. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Melbourne, having the keys to your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to check out more of Australia, you can leave wherever you want to, without trying to wave down a taxi or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next holiday, book your Hertz Melbourne rental car and visit all the must-see sights at your own pace. Reserve through CarRentals.com and cruise the highway in Melbourne, Australia.
