Australia: Car Rental in Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys....

 

After checking around, the price is just about the same, with the one from airport about AUD30~40 more (as expected). Only difference is availability of car models. I'll be most likely choosing a camry for comfort and fuel ecomony....

 

Price is about AUD330

 

I also advise you get a Falcon or Holden Commodore. Enjoy the Aussie experience!

 

P.S. There's a good place in the city for *ahem*manly pleasures*ahem* [;)]

Try Budget car rental.

I found that go vroomvroomvroom to rent from budget is cheaper than going to budget directly.... As some bro here recommended, I got myself a Ford XR6 at AUD326 for 6 days....

XR6 is a good choice.. make sure you open the bonnet to drool at the 4lit I-6 engine before driving it... :wub: :wub:

Crumpler confirm not cheap!

 

Home brand but more ex than SG....

 

If you have chance to go to their flea market, you might wanna look at their Leather jacket, provided you wear one, it's dirt cheap compare to SG...

Their police are very strict, TP or Police can catch speedster or what ever funny thing you try to do, becareful of their speed cams, sure activate once u above the speed limit even by 1kph.

 

Careful on the hook turns if there are any as well.

Will be going to Melbourne for a week with my family this coming school holiday.... Any good lobang on which car rental to rent a car at Tullamarine airport?

 

 

renting a car is cheap. parking in melbourne will be a $$ killer.

 

 

i would suggest take teksi from airport (abt AUD50) if you're juz visiting the city and rent only when you're going out of town and drop-off at the airport on the way back.

Budget is very popular, cheaper than Avis and Hertz. If need a GPS, cheaper to bring your own Garmin GPS (if you have one) to Australia, because to rent one in Australia is around AUD$10-$20 per day.

Watch out for the infamous Hook Turn.

Yea, I'm aware of the hook turn, though I have not personally encountered it yet. Seen this a lot in Taipei, though it's only for bikers, but the concept is the same. I wonder if the hook turn sign will appear early enough. It's difficult to change lane if it's too near to the intersection.

 

I'll be staying slightly offskirt of Melbourne, so renting from airport will make sense to me. On the day that we plan to go to the city, we will like be taking the public transport.... We'll see how...

You can either take a train to City or park at Crown casino ($6 for 6hr), this is the cheapest parking fee ever in City.
