What to do while in Melbourne

With your Melbourne car hire at the ready why not drive into the city where you can park centrally and explore the laneways in Melbourne and take a tour of the world-famous street art. Hire a car in Melbourne and get outside the bustling metropolis to drive around 90 minutes down to the Mornington Peninsula where you can hike the coastline on some beautiful coastal trails or visit Sorrento, one of the first European style settlements in the area. 

Summer 2022 in Melbourne

Summer in Melbourne can be unpredictable and hot so look for some activities that will help you escape the heat. Pop into the National Gallery of Victoria on St Kilda Road and take some time to wander through the diverse permanent collection of art on display. Alternatively take your hire car and drive just over half an hour to the Warrandyte National Park, to go swimming at Pound Bend on the Yarra River.

I recently rented the Suzuki Swift for roughly 11 days and was very happy with not only the car but the service from beginning to end. Affordable, quick and the team were so friendly. Would highly recommend and plan to use your services again.

I rented a car for a 2 days family trip. We needed 1 toddler seat and 2 booster seats which they could provide to us so we didn't have to look somewhere else to rent these separately. Honestly it was so much hassle to install as the car was a bit tight and the anchorage points was not easy to find. We kinda expect that but it will be super nice if there's someone trained to install and fit child restraints to help. On the other hand the trip itself was nice and uneventful. Also 5 stars for good communications when we was there to pick up and return the car.
