Conveniently located

You'll find Thrifty's Melbourne City office on Spencer Street, Docklands, which you can access through the lower ground level of the bus terminal. To get here, jump on a tram, bus or train to Southern Cross Station and walk a couple of minutes up the road to find us. 

Keep in mind that when you return a vehicle to Thrifty Melbourne, you'll bring it through the Wilsons public car park (on Spencer Street) – so just grab a ticket and go through the boom gates. Once you reach the top of the ramp, turn right and meet our friendly staff to hand over the keys.

Vehicle info

Small to medium rentals

Here at Thrifty Melbourne, you can choose from a wide range of passenger vehicles for any application. If you're travelling by yourself, you'll love the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Yaris and Kia Cerato – all fuel efficient and ideal for city driving. Or if you're looking for more space for the family, you can't go past the Toyota Camry or Holden Commodore – stylish, packed with safety features, and great value to boot! 

SUV range

We have a great range of SUVs in our fleet, such as the ever-popular Mitsubishi ASX and Ford Territory. Other vehicles in stock include the Ford Ecosport and Pajero Sport – and if you're looking to move a big group, you can't go past the eight-seater Hyundai IMAX. 

Note that there are no commercial vehicles available at Thrifty Melbourne, but you can hire these from nearby branches such as South Melbourne, Richmond and Footscray

Things to see and do with a rental car in the local area

No matter your reason for visiting Melbourne, there are loads of fun adventures to enjoy both within the city and further afield. The Thrifty office is only a stone's throw from a number of the city's top spots such as Etihad Stadium, DFO Harbour Town, Crown Casino and the Melbourne Aquarium. 

For those who want to get out of the city and see more of Victoria, Melbourne is the perfect starting point. Try the iconic drive along the Great Ocean Road, taste the wines in the Yarra Valley, soak up the scenery at Phillip Island or relax down on the Mornington Peninsula – you'll never run out of options! 

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, one-way streets and hook turns (turning right from the left lane) are common
