Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Melbourne?

You won’t need anything more than a valid driving licence and a credit card to get a car hire in Melbourne. Most hire companies require you to be at least 21 years of age and will restrict the range of models available, to smaller, four-cylinder vehicles – you won’t be able to go for passenger van hire or luxury car hire in Melbourne unless you’re 25 or older. Some Melbourne car hire companies will also require that you’ve held your licence for at least 12 months.

What are the rules for driving in Melbourne?

Australians drive on the left, and speed limits are 50 km/h in built-up areas and up to 110 km/h on motorways. One quirk to be aware of when hiring a car in Melbourne is that if motorways aren’t signposted, the default speed limit is slightly lower, at 100 km/h. The legal alcohol limit for driving is 50 mg per 100 ml of blood. Australia enforces its traffic laws very strictly – it’s a good idea to check with local authorities for recent changes before setting off to hire cars in Melbourne.

Melbourne lies on the south-east coast of Australia, so it lends itself to outdoor activities, as well as being a modern cosmopolitan city.
