9.6 ExcellentAug 30 2017
Melbourne city office is nicePros: Agent who helped us with the return was good. It was unclear why the amount we were told the rental would cost, and the cost the computer showed were different (not to our favor by quite a bit). He tried to find out what happened and made adjustments. Also told us about a great place to eat.Cons: Hertz seems to rely on the clients to take pictures of any car damages when they pick up the vehicles, and have those pictures to show the agents when returning the car. Very much on the honor system, which if it works is fine - just surprised that they don't have such pictures in the Hertz system tagged to each vehicle.

6.4 GoodDec 12 2018
Pros: The carCons: The service - please tell people the name of the car park where they need to drop the car off! There are no signs until you actually are inside. We lost half an hour trying to find it in traffic. That really ocershaded our trip.
6.0 GoodMar 6 2017
Return timelineCons: I was supposed to return the car st 11:00 am but due to many reasons it was delayed by 45 mins. The staff earlier promised to not charge me when I spoke on the phone but on my return , I was charged an additional $22 which was equal to half the value. This is grossly Injustice

Downgraded car...Pros: Good service, and a nice car in the end but...Cons: the original size of car shown on your website was not provided (shogun sport or similar). Instead was offered asx (2nd booking confirmation from you guys). I took one look and knew there wasn't enough luggage space as we had 2 large suitcases an, 2 carry on suitcases and 2 small bags. I know the size of a shogun sport. The only larger car they had (which we could get all our luggage into Was an exec (Merc e class). Although they 'did a deal' I still had to pay more than DOUBLE to get a suitable car to meet our needs for the trip (an extra $40 A DAY)!!! Just about to book a car for our trip to the states. Won't be using kayak to book with again. Europcar said this often happens with regards to class of car when booked through a third party.

2.0 MediocreJun 17 2018
Cons: Reserved a 8 seater suv but thrifty refuses to give a car that is 8 seater even after showing proof of reservation. Receptionist said kayak has different code and that my reservation is for 7 seater. I feel cheated. We were 8 ppl traveling from us and I needed exact 8 seats. Will never do business with them. I actually want my refund for inconvenience.
2.0 MediocreNov 16 2016
Disappointed, terrible serviceCons: Disappointed about the service and staff here. 
I rent a car from 11:38 11/11/2016, for 4 days till 15/11/2016; then ask for 1 day extension till 16/11/2016 and did ask for return car late at 5pm on 16/11 instead of 12:00pm. A staff said it was fine and didn't mention anything about the charge we need to pay after 12:00pm. 
I returned a car at 5:00pm on 16/11/2016 and was charged for 2 days extension and was told because any hours after 12:00pm was considered 1 more day rental. Another thing is that there was a cratched in the car before i took. when i returned, the staff went straight away to the cratched and told me to be charged for that. But i took some photos before i took the car , i told them about that then he said it's ok. so terrible.

2.0 MediocreDec 28 2020
Pros: Staff was fine - but the car as advertised was NOT what was produced, which was acknowledged. But there was nothing to do by that point as we had to leave.Cons: The car as advertised should be the car that is given. I gave up a cheaper reservation, closer to home for this one. Just wrong.
6.8 GoodJan 4 2020
Pros: The car was great and had no issuesCons: I hired the car expecting to pay the quoted price on the website. Instead when I arrived to Avis with my itinerary in hand for the week ahead I was charged double by hidden fees for my being 23years old. Not a word was mentioned about by the website nor the staff until the keys were being handed to me and asked to sign the paper work. At that moment in time it’s too late to go through another rental agency or cancel plans so I had to bite the bullet. Please read all fine print and ask questions before you book.
9.6 ExcellentMar 11 2019
Pros: Pick up and drop off was easy, best service i've received so far in car rentals. Car imo wasn't worth the price but that could be negotiable but everything was good
8.0 ExcellentDec 7 2017

Pros: - Location in the heart of CBD with easy access. - Drop off open 24/7. - Price.Cons: - Separate office counter and car park building (distance +/- 350 m) - Car not ready, had to wait another 30 minutes. - Cleanliness of the car.
2.0 MediocreMay 23 2018
Outsourced to unknown hire companyCons: Kayak website highlighted on airport pick up. Fail! SixT outsource to another provider who is off-site involving a bus ride away. Toyota Corolla or Similar reserved. Fail! Next level down Suzuki Swift provided. Outsourced hire company is so far removed from Kayak that they will not budge on the booking made to them. All of these caused a lot of friction with my partner! Just what you need when you start a holiday!
2.0 MediocreMar 20 2018
Never actually got a carPros: NothingCons: Office was shut at pick up time, never actually got a car, none of the phone numbers work so can’t call about a refund.
4.8 OkayMar 4 2018
Cons: we had to wait for 30 mins for the pick up from airport ; van wasnt in a great condition, though usable for the 1 week trip. I have had much better experiences with Sixt in other countries and australian states, quite disappointed with my experience in melbourne.
8.0 ExcellentJan 2 2018
Pros: First car given to us didn't have toll tag so was replaced with a smaller car after 10 minute wait. Car was fine for the price,Cons: Pick up at Melbourne Airport is very unclear, no indicators on the booking where to catch the shuttle, phone number on the website apparently disconnected.
6.0 GoodJan 1 2018
Pros: Price is reasonable, counter staff is friendly.Cons: NO contact telephone number on the voucher so I spent plenty of time to find out a right number to call the shuttle service. It is not good for a foreigner who was helpless at the airport.
10.0 ExcellentMar 13 2017
Good value and economic carPros: Easy pick up and drop off Although we had a small car, it ran well and very economically.Cons: Pick up/drop off was a different location to where you registered but this is a minor detaill.
5.2 OkayMar 7 2017
Cons: difficult to find the office. Even the construction workers on the adjacent site didn't know they were there.

3.2 MediocreJul 11 2019
Pros: Friendly staffCons: The surcharges should’ve been known at the beginning. There were many hidden fees that showed up on the final invoice that wasn’t explains. Also, the location was hard to find since they were a part of hertz — this caused many confusion.

Top tips for renting a car in Melbourne

  • For travelers with flights to Melbourne, you may find yourself landing at Melbourne Airport, Essendon Airport, or Avalon Airport. Luckily for would-be car renters, all three airports feature on-site rental counters. For Melbourne Airport, the rental car center is found on the ground floor of the airport in Terminal T123’s parking garage. In Essendon Airport and Avalon Airport, visitors can find the rental counters in the respective main terminal buildings.
  • No trip to Australia is complete without a few road trips. Fortunately for travelers renting a car in Melbourne, many of Australia’s wonders are within a short drive of the city. Some of the top spots to visit include Yarra Valley and its wonderful wineries, and Phillip Island, where you will find some of Australia’s most famous animals such as koalas, wallabies, and even penguins.
  • Drivers new to Melbourne should be aware of the city’s rush hour traffic jams, which run from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. However, even though congestion can be quite severe in Melbourne during those times, some smart navigation and route planning can help to mitigate the situation. For instance, it pays to avoid Punt Road and Princes Street in the central downtown area during rush hour.
  • Besides driving on the left side of the road, drivers in Melbourne should keep their eyes open for trams and, in particular, Melbourne’s famed hook turns. Hook turns are right turns that are made in the left lane because a tram is also crossing the intersection. Signage will be posted to indicate to drivers when hook turns are present and where to turn.

  • While Melbourne may not have as narrow of streets as you would see in many European cities, the roads can still be a bit compact compared to roads in the U.S. Thus, travelers renting cars would be best off sticking to a compact or smaller vehicle, especially when taking streetside parallel parking into consideration.

  • Speed limits in Melbourne, and in the state of Victoria in general, run between 40 km/h (25 mph) and 50 km/h (31 mph) on city roads, 100 km/h (62 mph) on rural roads and 110 km/h (68 mph) on highways and motorways.

  • Gas prices, while not extremely high in Melbourne, are by no means cheap when compared to the average prices seen in many cities in the U.S. In general, drivers will see an average cost of AU$1.40 ($1) per liter, which comes out to about AU$5.29 ($3.78) per gallon.

  • Streetside parking in greater Melbourne is fairly available but, once you get into the central business district, parking can become fairly scarce. Because of this, it is highly recommended that drivers park in one of the many parking garages dispersed across Melbourne CBD. Drivers should note that if you plan on doing a bit of shopping while you are downtown, you can often validate your parking ticket in a nearby store to earn a parking ticket refund.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
