Car Hire Melbourne International Airport: Things to See

Melbourne is a major Australian city, located in the south-eastern State of Victoria. Visitors to the area often make a road trip out of the city to view the site of the Australian Gold Rush. This 1850s event led to the arrival of a great number of people (from across the world) to live in the city. The modern city has retained some of this cosmopolitanism - the magnificent street art displays are a popular example of the avant-garde nature of the city. Alternatively, cricket fans may wish to visit the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This awesome stadium has been hosting international cricket games since 1877.

We had a great first experience with sixt in Melbourne. Booked 8 hours before picking up car and was very pleased to be upgraded to an m series bmw. Handled the great ocean road well. Staff was great for pick up and drop off was easy as well. President Club at Hertz but they didnt have any cars and would say this experience was just as easy.

Outstanding Customer Service provided on Saturday 25th February 2023! Very friendly and the two ladies were just lovely to interact with. Fresh off the plane from Adelaide with no baggage and no booking, I walked into the Sixt office located a short distance from the arrivals at Melbourne Airport. New to the car rental market, Sixt were a 'breath of fresh air'. I have hired from all major companies and they were simply friendlier and better priced. I hired a Toyota Corolla which had 17,000 kms on the clock. It was very clean and still smelt new! When I returned the vehicle I was met by another friendly staff member. Big smile and no problem I didn't refuel (I know I get charged). In the past I've been the recipient of 'rolling eyes', smug comments and "It's not that hard to refill". So THANK YOU for not making me feel awful about not refuelling! It's simple - charge me 😉 How convenient! Sixt welcome to the market! I highly recommend you use this business to hire your next vehicle!
