Some considerations for driving a hire car in and around Mildura

Have your papers in order before you pick up your car

To rent a car in Victoria, you need to have a valid drivers licence and a credit card. While some car hire depots may accept a debit card, most prefer a credit card and very few accept cash. Remember that if you want to have additional drivers, they will need to visit the rental depot with you when you pick up the rental vehicle, and will likewise need to show a valid driving licence.

Be sure to check over your hire car

Before you accept the hire car and drive away, be sure to check it carefully for damage. You will be given a report that notes any existing damage, but it is important that you check the car yourself for any additional scratches. It is a good idea to take photos of any pre-existing damage to avoid any disputes when you return the car to the rental depot.

Remember where you are

In Australia, people drive on the left hand side of the road — even if they are driving a hire car! It seems like a simple point, but if you’re not used to this, it can be an easy thing to forget — especially in moments of anxiety. Remember the cardinal rule: left is best.

Don’t forget your luggage

When we say this we’re not talking about you leaving your bags at home, but rather, when you’re booking your hire car in the first place, don’t forget how much space you’ll need for your luggage. Some compact cars are, well, compact, and if you’re travelling with the family and all their bags, with all that open road time, you might find yourself appreciating a bit more space.
