KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bendigo

  • Knowing the main roads in Bendigo is important for both locals and visitors, as they provide necessary access and connectivity to various parts of Victoria. Some important roads and highways when using cheap car hire in Bendigo include the Calder Motorway, the Loddon Valley Highway and the Midland Highway. The Calder Motorway connects Bendigo to Melbourne, while the Loddon Valley Highway runs north-south through the heart of the city and provides access to surrounding towns and cities. The Midland Highway connects Bendigo to Ballarat and other cities in the western region of the state.
  • Child safety is an important issue throughout Bendigo, and there are a number of guidelines and best practices that you should be aware of to help protect children from harm. You are required to properly fasten children under seven years using a child restraint or booster seat when travelling in a vehicle. A car seat with an in-built harness is required for children aged between six months and four years old, or until they exceed the recommended weight for their car seat. Children between four and eight years old must use a booster seat, and it is recommended to use a booster seat until the child is at least 145 cm tall.
  • You will come across various restricted roads when driving your hire car in Bendigo. Pedestrian-only zones in the city centre of Bendigo are Pall Mall and Hargreaves Mall. They are restricted to vehicles, to provide a safe environment for pedestrians. To navigate around these areas, you can drive a Bendigo hire car through alternative streets like Mitchell Street or Hargreaves Street. Williamson Street has weight and size restrictions for vehicles; it's restricted to prevent heavy vehicles from damaging the road surface and nearby buildings. To navigate around this area, you can use alternative streets like High Street or Midland Highway.
  • There is plenty to see in Bendigo itself, but to see the best the town and the surrounding area has to offer, you will need a car. Road trips in the surroundings are recommendable. You have places like Axedale, for example, which is a beautiful spot on the river for a packed picnic and a swim on a hot day. There is a limited amount of public transport, so car hire in Bendigo will open up your options for sightseeing.
  • A number of options for car hire in Bendigo can be found at the airport, such as Avis and Budget; they are located in the passenger terminal, near returns. Once you have hired your car, you only need to step outside to the parking bays to find your vehicle, which means you don't have to get a bus. If you are touring in Bendigo and have no one to pick you up, this is the easier option, as the airport is about 5 km away from the town centre.
  • Bendigo is relatively easy to drive around in and has well marked roads and signage to assist. You will be able to drive around the backstreets with ease to admire the architecture and get an idea of how people live.
  • Be particularly careful when driving a car hire in Bendigo at dusk and dawn, especially on the outskirts, as we have wildlife such as kangaroos and koalas crossing the road at these times. Make sure to slow down and be alert to prevent massive amounts of damage to the car and unnecessary death/injury to wildlife, even the possibility of an animal coming through the windscreen! Farmers also move cattle and sheep, so if you start to see a couple, then you may be about to get a herd, in which case you should slow right down or even stop until the herd has passed.
