Optional Extras Available at Clayton Car Hire

Families visiting Melbourne on a vacay can also take the stress out of travelling with our easy to fit child and booster seats. We haven't forgotten the local commercial workers either with a range of optional extras for hauling goods including boxes, straps and ropes.

Things to See and Do in Clayton

Discover everything Inner East Melbourne has to offer by visiting Clayton - an urban area crammed with boutique fashion outlets and oriental dining. 

Clayton's many great eateries reflect its multiculturalism with restaurants including the Middle Fish Thai Restaurant, Sue'z Delights Malaysian Restaurant, Ping's Dumpling Kitchen and Bikanerwala Indian Restaurant (and many more!).

The area is well equipped for bustling families with the Croc's Playcentre, Clayton Library and Clayton Community Centre Courtyard. You'll also see uni students meandering the streets on their way to one of the classes at the Monash University.

Clayton is the perfect place to start your exploration of Melbourne. So shift gears in your Thrifty hire car to Melbourne City Centre to explore graffiti filled laneways and the epic culture the Victorian city is known for!
