KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bayswater

  • Having a car hire in Bayswater will allow you to explore the city and its surrounding areas with ease. Although there is good public transport closer to the CBD, this is less widespread further out. Having a car will allow you to easily access some of the attractions near Bayswater that are not easily accessible via public transport, such as The Dandenong Ranges and Sherwood Forest, both excellent locations for a picnic.
  • You will be able to pick up your Bayswater car hire from Melbourne Airport (MEL). The service desks are located through the walkways attached to both Terminal 2 for international arrivals and Terminal 1 for domestic arrivals. Alternatively, there are locations for car hire in Bayswater itself, if you are travelling by bus or train. We recommend booking ahead to avoid waiting and ensure you can get the vehicle of your choice.
  • When driving on any toll roads, you will need an electronic toll pass. Check with your car hire company to see if your toll expenses will be paid upon returning the vehicle or if you need to nominate a bank account or credit card, to which the expenses will be automatically billed. Be aware that trams make stops at certain locations where passengers have to disembark directly onto the road; at these stops, you are required to stop at the rear of the tram, even if the light is green, to allow passengers to disembark safely.
  • Although Bayswater is some distance from the city centre, it is a thriving industrial area, and as such, peak hour times can get quite busy. We recommend avoiding driving from 07:30 to 09:30 and 17:00 to 19:00. The best times to drive are mid-morning and early afternoon before school ends (between 15:00 and 15:30). The biggest difficulty you may encounter when driving your car hire in Bayswater is the presence of trams and tram tracks. There aren't too many tram lines in this suburb, but if you are heading into the city centre, we recommend familiarising yourself with hook turns. These involve making a turn from the outer lane across traffic and are required at certain intersections that have tram tracks.
  • Book your car hire in Bayswater at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Bayswater are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

If you plan on heading further out into country roads, you may wish to have a vehicle equipped for off-roading, particularly in harsh weather, but this will likely be unnecessary.

    When driving in built-up areas, the speed limit will usually be 50 km/h; in school zones and on roads within and adjacent to shopping areas, the limit will drop down to 40 km/h. On country roads, it will go as high as 100 km/h, and on freeways, the limit will vary between 80 km/h and 100 km/h.

Be aware that signs marked 2P with 'Meter' written underneath require a ticket, whereas a 2P sign without 'Meter' written underneath will be 2h free. Note that under these signs, even if you are paying for a ticket, you cannot remain in the same parking bay for more than the initial allotted time. Prices tend to vary between A$ 5 and A$ 18 an hour. If you are heading into the city centre, you can book ahead through Book A Bay or Secure-A-Spot for cheaper and guaranteed parking.

Great staff at the location. Flexible when Covid impacted my pick-up date. The staff at the call centre were less helpful.
