Optional extras and early opening hours at Victoria car hire locations

Once you've sorted the car that ticks all the boxes, it's time to think about extras. For families with youngsters we have the optional extra of a safe and reliable baby or child booster seat. Who wants to carry a car seat with them? What an effort!

We've also got a top-notch TomTom GPS unit that is great for anyone travelling to a new area. Especially if you have a strict deadline – a meeting with a big client just can't wait! 

Another easy optional extra is our pre-paid fuel option. This means you don't have to fill up at the bowser before returning the hire car – saving you time and a looming headache. Unfortunately, any unused fuel can't be refunded. 

Opening hours for early rises 

Crikey! It's a magnificent day, the sun is shining and the open road is calling your name. Why wait? You can get on the road early by picking up your hire car from 7.30am at most Thrifty Car Rental locations. General hours include 7.30am to 5.30pm weekdays and 7.30am to 4pm on weekends. Check with the location for specific times.

Things to see and do in Victoria, Australia

Explore the streets of Melbourne with a Thrifty car rental


The hipster hub of Melbourne with graffiti filled tight lane ways and a bustling city life is a must visit city in Australia. This multicultural melting pot offers visitors a fun-filled experience in each of its character-filled areas. Visit bubbling Bourke Street Mall to find some vintage apparel, marvel at the sublime views at Docklands and enjoy some yummy grub in Chinatown.  
Don't forget the Yarra Precinct! Here you'll find the public space of Federation Square with postmodern art on display and a fascinating NGV International and the Arts Centre. The Yarra North Bank has some amazing Aboriginal rock carvings, while South Bank is the ideal spot for dinner and drinks. Melbourne has it all! 

Exploring outer Melbourne

Ramp up your trip by exploring outer Melbourne! While the city of Melbourne is a true gem, outer Melbourne will surprise and thrill any traveller. Buckle up in one of our sleek rides and hit the highway. The Great Ocean Road winds through some of Australia's most iconic landmarks, such as the limestone cliffs at Port Campbell National Park and the astonishing Twelve Apostles.

Shift gears and you'll land in the Wilsons Promontory National Park, stretching over a massive 50,000 hectare reserve. Sleep under the stars by a rushing river or on an extraordinary mountaintop. Make sure you drive down the Yanakie to Tidal River settlement with truly beautiful window views.
