SIXT Car Rental Services at Melbourne Airport

Melbourne Airport serves just over 27 million passengers per year, and is located approximately 23 km, or 14 miles from the city center of Melbourne, Australia. It is the second largest airport in the country, and is a relatively new airport, as its services only began in 1970 to replace the nearby Essendon Airport. Out of the four airports in the region, Melbourne Airport is the only one that handles international passengers, but the majority of its traffic is still domestic. The airport is well equipped to support the needs of all its passengers, and there are various transport options to and from the airport. Passengers can also hire a vehicle; from car hire companies such Sixt at Melbourne Airport. Sixt is a well-known company that has been offering car rental services for many years at a wide variety of locations around the world.

Melbourne Airport consists of four terminal buildings, referred to as Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4. Terminal 2 is the international terminal, while Terminal 4 handles all budget airline companies. The other two terminals are used for domestic traffic, mainly from the airline companies of Virgin Australia, Qantas and JetStar Airways, for which Melbourne Airport is a hub. The car hire companies with rental counters at the airport are all found on the ground floor of the short term parking lot. A rented car from Sixt is the perfect way to explore the wonderful and vibrant city of Melbourne, featuring trendy bars and cafes, a variety of tourist attractions and many film and food festivals. Passengers arriving at Melbourne Airport are advised to book their car from Sixt in advance, from Sixt’s website at

In Australia, and at Melbourne Airport, Sixt has a large fleet of vehicles, which are all of the latest models. They are reliable and mechanically sound, and in overall excellent condition. The vehicles are all divided into various car categories, therefore customers will not be selecting a car by specific make and model, but rather by category. The vehicle categories also determine the rental rates of the vehicle. On Sixt’s website, customers can view details for the example cars of each class, such as passenger and luggage capacities, which is useful when deciding the size of vehicle to choose. Smaller cars, such as the Fiat 500 and Hyundai Getz ideally seat four passengers, and are an excellent choice for city driving. They also come with good rental rates, and are light on fuel. However, be careful not to choose a vehicle that is too small, as it must be able to comfortably hold both your passengers and your luggage items. Smaller cars often don’t offer much space for luggage.

Larger vehicles from Sixt include the Holden Cruze, with an automatic transmission and a minimum age requirement of 23, as well as the Mitsubishi Lancer and Ford Focus. These vehicles can seat five passengers and have reasonable space for luggage as well. The Honda Accord is another popular choice, but for this car group, the driver must be at least 25 years of age, and have held their drivers license for a minimum of two years. Estate cars are also available from Sixt, at Melbourne Airport, and are similar to the Hyundai i30 CW STW, Hyundai Tuscon, Ford Mondeo STW and Holden Commodore STW. Estates are ideal for families as they have plenty of interior space and a large capacity for luggage.

Sixt’s range of even larger minivans and vans are ideal for families as well, or even groups of travelers, as the Toyota Commuter can accommodate up to twelve people. The Kia Carnival and Hyundai Imax are suitable for eight passengers. Certain types of automatic vehicles are used for disabled passengers who request hand controls from Sixt. At Melbourne Airport, hand controls should be booked in advance, and are available free of charge. A disabled driver who is unable to operate a vehicle may still be the primary renter at Sixt, by using a designated driver. The credit card of the disabled customer will be used to pay for the period of car hire, but the license of the designated driver will be used to validate the rental.

Vehicles from Sixt Melbourne Airport may also be arranged as a one way hire, which enables customers to collect their vehicle from Melbourne Airport, but then to return it to another rental location. The return location can be in the city of Melbourne or even in another town or city nearby. However, customers should keep in mind that vehicles from the car hire companies at Melbourne Airport are not usually permitted to be driven to Western Australia, or into the Northern Territory. Cars may also not be taken on ferries to the island of Tasmania. All details regarding your one way hire must be confirmed with Sixt.

Sixt is a car hire company offering their customers many convenient and innovative services that simplify the reservation, rental and collection procedures. Customers who are fond of renting from Sixt should consider applying for the Sixt Express Card, as this allows access to many of Sixt’s services. Holders of a Sixt Express Card can bypass the rental counters at the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals, easily book a car over the phone from as little as four hours in advance with the Sixt Mobile-Check-In service and make quick rentals online, with the Sixt Online-Check-In service. Ladies may also benefit from their partner’s corporate rates with the Sixt Ladies Card, and more frequent renters enjoy even more exclusive benefits with a Sixt Gold Card.

Sixt, at Melbourne Airport, will provide all further details with regards to your car hire needs.
