I only rented a car once in Melbourne. By and large if you stick to the city you don't really need to drive.

BTW, there is an extra charge for rental pick up from the airport. If you can 'dong' then I suggest you rent from one of the outlets slightly outside of town (most are quite accessible via train or tram), then arrange for drop off at airport before departure.

I suggest you catch the Skybus from the airport to the city and then if you need a car, go rent it from the usual rentals near Queen Victoria Market. They are on Elizabeth Street within 3 mins walk of Queen Vic Market.

I see... Thanks....

We'll be staying at friend's place, which is near to the airport... So we won't be going into the city. Plan is still sketchy actually....

Before you go, you can go to http://www.vroomvroomvroom.com.au/ and check out the rate. The website will compare all the car rental company in melbourne. From the site you can select the place to pickup and return(airport one of them) and all the cost will be factor in. The good thing is you can always book and cancel at no additional cost.

The car rental counters are located at the right when you arrive at international airport. All of them are there don't worry.....

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* wink.gif
