Top Hire Car Tips in Melbourne

Since Melbourne is a bustling city with an extensive tram network, there are some unique conditions to driving in the CBD. Here are some of our top tips when driving in Melbourne:

  1. Take caution when sharing the road with trams. To ensure your safety, research Melbourne's tramline road rules.
  2. Consider if your travel route will include toll roads. There are several toll roads in Melbourne including CityLink, which links the CBD and Melbourne Airport, and EastLink, which you'll most likely drive if visiting the Mornington Peninsula. Make sure to discuss payment options with your vehicle supplier upon collection.
  3. Research parking options: Parking can be expensive in Melbourne. Check online for special offers or discounts, as pre-booking online will often be more affordable. We even have some great offers if you need to park at Melbourne Airport.
  4. Melbourne's peak traffic times are from 6:30am to 9:00am and from 3:00pm to 6:30pm. Allow for additional travel time when driving in Melbourne during these times.
