Arrive and Drive

There's nothing like getting on the road and to your final destination quickly and easily after spending hours on a plane. With Thrifty and our Blue Chip benefits at Melbourne Airport, you can take advantage of our Arrive and Drive service. Bypass the counters when you rent a car as a Blue Chip member. Simply check for your name on our large TV screens, head straight to your car rental bay to find the paperwork conveniently places in the front seat. All you need to do then is sign the condition report and hand it back to our friendly concierge before driving off. 

Hire optional extras

You can also choose to add handy extras to your hire car booking, such as child or baby seats, or a useful GPS navigation unit. Melbourne is notorious for confusing interstate and international travellers with their unique road rules! Don't get caught by Melbourne's infamous hook turns or many one way streets when you rent a GPS unit.  

Trucks, utes and moving vans for hire

Looking to hire a truck, moving van or ute? We also have an extensive fleet of commercial vehicles available for hire from Melbourne Airport, supplied via Thrifty's nearby Tullamarine office. View commercial vehicles >

Customer reviews and testimonials

"Best experience from a rental company in ages.”
 
“I always choose Thrifty for the competitive rates, great service and good cars.” 
“I was super impressed with the staff, our rep that we dealt with was superb, friendly, honest and efficient. He was the same rep when I returned the car and was simply lovely to deal with. Made the whole process pleasant and absolutely hassle-free. He is a huge asset to the company.” 

Things to see and do with a rental car in Melbourne

Melbourne is a city alive and buzzing with eateries, cafes, attractions and exciting things to do, so a rental car is a great way to get around and see as much of it as possible. Within the city itself, you can check out Federation Square and its lively restaurant and cultural scene, take a stroll through the Royal Botanic Gardens or shop up a storm at the Queen Victoria Market.

Attractions right on the city’s doorstep include Australia’s most famous road trip, the Great Ocean Road, as well as the Yarra Valley, which is a true wine-lover’s dream. Geelong, Ballarat and Daylesford are all gorgeous spots, filled with history and culture. Meanwhile, Phillip Island and the Dandenong Ranges both have incredible scenery, and are great places to explore.

Tips and advice when visiting the Melbourne region

  • Be careful when driving on tram tracks, and give way to commuters getting off the trams
  • In the Melbourne CBD, hook turns are common (turning right from the left lane) and there are many one-way streets to watch out for.
