HERTZ Car Rental Services at Melbourne Airport

Melbourne Airport is the second largest airport in Australia, and serves the large city of Melbourne. It is located approximately 23 km, or 14 miles from the city center, and handles around 32 million passengers per year. Melbourne Airport is also known as the Tullamarine Airport, due to its position adjacent to this suburb, and has the official airport code of MEL. This airport is a hub for the airline companies of Tiger Airways Australia, Virgin Australia, Jetstar Airways and Qantas, and is the only international air gateway out of four airports in the region. Although by bus or taxi are popular ways to travel from Melbourne Airport, many passengers arrange their own rented car, from car hire companies at the airport such as Hertz. Hertz has the largest car rental network in the world, and has over ninety years of experience in the car hire industry.

Melbourne Airport consists of four terminal buildings, of which one is used for all international traffic, two are for domestic flight purposes, and the other is dedicated to budget airline companies. This is Terminal 4, and was formerly know as the Domestic Express, or the South Terminal. The majority of Melbourne Airport’s traffic is domestic, and one of the busiest routes served is to Sydney Airport. This route is the fourth most traveled in the world. Arriving passengers will find all the amenities they require within the terminal buildings, and the car hire companies of Melbourne Airport on the ground floor of the short term parking area. The rental counters of Hertz at this location are open from 05:00 to 01:30, every day of the week. Passengers can either hire a vehicle directly from Hertz at Melbourne Airport, or in advance, from Hertz’s website at www.hertz.com.

There are many reasons why Hertz is often considered to be one of the best car rental companies in the world. Besides having the most experience out of all in the industry, Hertz offers a range of services for their customers. At Melbourne Airport, Gold Canopy and Gold Counter service is available for members of the Hertz #1 Club Gold, and the Hertz NeverLost, In-Car Navigation System can be hired along with the rented car. Members of the Hertz #1 Club Gold enjoy a wide variety of exclusive time and money saving benefits, but are only those customers who are more frequent renters. However, Hertz also provides the Hertz #1 Club, which is suitable for all renters, even those who only rent occasionally, and this ‘club’ offers many benefits as well. Someone who has rented just three times in a twelve-month period will be invited to join the Hertz #1 Club Gold.

Additional equipment hired by Hertz includes their superb navigation system, with all the features that make driving to any location an easy task. It is highly recommended for customers who are unfamiliar with the road network in and surrounding Melbourne. The system’s features include clear and accurate visuals on a colour touch screen, turn-by-turn directions in voice or visual mode and a choice of languages. There is also the Instant Locate feature, which allows the driver to pinpoint his position at any time, and the Route Method, which provides the fastest or easiest directions to any location. Drivers will enjoy the extensive list of pre-programmed points of interest as well. Additional equipment may also include baby seats, booster seats or luggage racks. Any item required should be reserved in advance, to ensure its availability.

Disabled passengers arriving at Melbourne Airport will find the terminals to be suitably designed for their comfort, and that Hertz may offer hand controls for their assistance when driving a vehicle. Hand controls are ideal for individuals with a lower limb deficiency, as they operate the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. Since the device is only available on certain vehicles at Melbourne Airport, it will always require an advanced reservation. A designated driver may also accompany a disabled person who is unable to operate a vehicle, should the physically challenged individual wish to be the primary renter. The additional driver or hand control equipment will not add any further expense to the rental.

Vehicles available from Hertz Melbourne Airport, include the Toyota Yaris, Toyota Corolla Hatch, Toyota Corolla Sedan and Toyota Camry. Features of these vehicles generally include air conditioning, driver airbags or dual airbags, power steering and a radio/CD player, and the majority of vehicles can be hired by anyone 21 years of age or older. There are also more elegant vehicles for hire, such as the Holden Statesman, and convertibles, similar to the Holden Astra Convertible. Families may find an estate car similar to the Holden Sportwagon or Toyota Kluger to be ideal, as they generally offer more space for luggage, or even a Minivan, such as the Kia Carnival. SUV's offered by Hertz include the Toyota Prado 4WD, Ford Territory and the Toyota RAV 4, and larger vans are similar to the Toyota Commuter Bus, seating up to twelve passengers.

Customers renting a car from Hertz may even find a one way hire to be most convenient. A one way hire allows the renter to collect his/her vehicle from Melbourne Airport, and then return it to another Hertz rental location. Passengers should just confirm as to where vehicles are allowed to be driven, as cars are often not allowed to be taken on ferries to the islands, or to be driven into Western parts of Australia. A one way hire from Melbourne Airport may incur additional expenses if it is returned to a further location, but may be free of charge if the car is delivered to another rental location in Melbourne.

Hertz’s website provides more details regarding the services offered, or customers can contact Hertz directly, at their Melbourne Airport rental location.
