Melbourne Airport (MEL)

Departure Dr, Melbourne Airport VIC 3045, Australia

Melbourne Airport is the only international airport out of the four that serve the Melbourne metropolitan area. For anyone wanting to explore the vibrant city and the captivating scenery of the state of Victoria, the airport is the perfect place to pick up a hire car.

Located 23km (around 14 miles) from the city centre, Melbourne Airport (also known as Tullamarine Airport) has four passenger terminals which handle around 30 million people each year — many of whom come to us for an exclusive car hire deal.

Finding the best deals

We compare prices from all the big car hire companies at Melbourne Airport, including Europcar, Thrifty and Hertz (as well as some local firms like Redspot and East Coast Rentals), so we can bring you great deals on car hire. You will often see cars with a free additional driver — perfect if you want to split the driving with another member of your group!

By booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy, you will avoid any hidden fuel charges too. Simply refill the tank just before the end of the rental and you won’t pay a penny extra when you drop the car off.

We also ask each customer to provide feedback on their rental experience, so you can see exactly what others think of each company before you make your mind up. After all, we want you to be sure you are hiring with a trusted company.

Book with us to be sure you’re getting the right car, at the right price, from a company you can trust.

Choice of cars

Whether you want something small, spacious or stylish, there are cars to suit your every need. From compact and economy cars (ideal for single travellers and couples), to family cars, convertibles, people carriers and SUVs, finding your perfect hire car has never been easier.

To tailor the search results to your preferences, simply use the filters on the left hand side of the results page to narrow down your options. We want to make the rental process as simple as possible, from booking to driving… and that is why we tell you exactly what is included in the price upfront.

Tips and advice

  • 1
    Your pick-up location will depend on which company provides the car. Some have their car hire counters in the terminal, while others are based at the airport’s car rental centre or located off-site (with a courtesy shuttle bus or meet & greet service to take you there).
  • 2
    Choosing an off-site pick-up location can be a great way of saving money.
  • 3
    You can drive into Melbourne’s Central Business District in around 25 minutes, along the Tullamarine Freeway.
  • 4
    Routes into the city and other major towns are well-signposted, but if you are unfamiliar with the area, you might want to request a GPS to help with navigation.
  • 5
    Make sure you book a car with air conditioning if you are visiting between December and February to keep you comfortable in the summer heat.
  • 6
    Roads in Melbourne generally get busy from 7am-9am and from 5pm-7pm.
