Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Melbourne Dollar car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Melbourne?
Be sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Melbourne's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Melbourne set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Dollar's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Melbourne?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Melbourne. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Melbourne trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Dollar. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Dollar car rental?
Dollar requires a deposit when you book your rental. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Melbourne. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Dollar car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Dollar. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Melbourne has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've had an evening out in Melbourne's downtown or had an evening out in Melbourne's downtown. If you are wishing to add some fun to your Melbourne trip, you can also drive to Andretti Thrill Park and enjoy an evening taking on the park's attractions.
Does Dollar offer one-way rentals in Melbourne?
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Dollar. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
