It was hard to find the Thrifty Office as the Airport at Melb is under construction. Once we found it it was smooth sailing and all worked out well

When a receive the bills I was so happy and when we went to rent the car they ask me 200$ more ???? It’s the first time and the last time. I’m so angry about that.

What are the major attractions in Melbourne?

If your trip to Melbourne is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is a bit on the empty side, let us give you a few hints and tips.

You might need to ask the boss for some more time off, because Melbourne is simply bursting with iconic attractions. Start off with Federation Square and Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex. Don't miss Melbourne Cricket Ground and St Kilda Beach either.

You'll have to get up early if you want to see all the fascinating sights that this place has to offer. Bourke Street Mall and Melbourne Central are no-brainers. SEA LIFE Melbourne and Eureka Tower shouldn't be overlooked either.

Not too far from the city center, Hardware Lane is one attraction to consider putting on your to-do list. Collins Street and Melbourne's GPO are also nearby and worth checking out.

What are the best road trip destinations near Melbourne?

Time to get out on to the open road and head out to Lilydale. Just 22 miles away, a road trip here will be easy. Looking for an excuse to check it out? Lillydale Lake and Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail ought to be enough reason. If you need any more persuading, also think about Coldstream Hills.

Where are the best beaches near Melbourne?

  • South Melbourne Beach (2 miles away).
  • Middle Park Beach (2 miles away).
  • Sandridge Beach (3 miles away).

How can I get a cheap car rental in Melbourne?

Here's a rundown of all the tricks of the trade to help you save more money:

  • Use our handy filter tool to point you in the direction of the hottest car rental deals around — and then compare the prices;
  • By entering your email address into our Price Drop Alert, you'll be notified of all of the best offers for your chosen location;
  • Check the bargains at all rental locations, including the airport and its surrounds. A short cab trip to a neighboring rental car office could mean big savings;
  • If you have some elbow room in your schedule, modify your dates to find better prices on different days of the week;
  • Pickup and drop-off times typically need to be the same or very similar (e.g, both 9 a.m.) or you could be required to pay for a full extra day;
  • Sometimes rental outlets offer discounts if you pay as soon as you book, so be sure to keep a lookout for these kinds of offers;
  • Don't let the deal you've been looking for slip through your fingers. Book as soon as you can and drive away with your ideal set of wheels.

What kind of rental car should I get for Melbourne?

Making your way to Melbourne to be wowed by Melbourne Cricket Ground and Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex? Now that's an unforgettable road trip! But it pays to think about just how you'll get around. Driving in this sprawling metropolis can be a nerve-wracking experience, so go for a smaller vehicle, like a compact car. You'll be zipping past traffic and maneuvering into tight car spaces like you lived there your whole life. If you want to leave the driving for outside the city center, that's OK with us too. Book something more comfortable and a little bigger, like a standard car, and explore the mountains of Melton City.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Melbourne?

You'll be glad to know that there's a broad range of both luxury and economy rental vehicles on offer in Melbourne. What you go for depends on your funds and the activities you've got planned. Specialty and prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you want to indulge yourself, why not grab an elite SUV, or perhaps a cushy mid-sized sedan? On the other hand, if you just need something to whiz around town in as cheaply as possible, maybe go for a budget compact vehicle (or something else that won't break the bank).
