KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Coburg

  • Coburg is a suburb of Melbourne that’s around 9 km north of the CBD and around 15 km southeast of Melbourne Airport (MEL). Though there are plenty of excellent public transport options available for trips into Melbourne’s CBD, if you wish to explore Port Phillip Bay, Mornington Peninsula, the stunning Great Ocean Road or the wine country and national parks of Yarra Valley, then car hire in Coburg is an excellent idea.
  • Melbourne Tullamarine Airport offers plenty of options for cheap car hire in Coburg. There are four terminals at the airport, but all the car hire kiosks can be found opposite Terminal 2. Once you’ve booked your vehicle, you’ll pick it up from the ground floor of the car park for Terminals 1, 2 and 3. There are usually plenty of vehicle options available if you make your booking on the day, but you can save time and money by selecting your car and pre-booking through KAYAK.
  • Melbourne has an extensive tramline that extends into Coburg. Though this is a beautiful aspect of the city, it can present challenges to drivers not used to sharing the road with trams. Of course, this shouldn’t put you off car hire in Coburg. There are just a few key things to keep in mind. You can’t overtake a tram on its left, and you should avoid driving in the tram lane unless you need to turn right within 50 metres. If a tram ahead of you stops, you must stop behind it, as you need to give way to any pedestrians boarding or disembarking from the tram.
  • You will find plenty of cyclists on the roads in Coburg and the northern suburbs of Melbourne. For this reason, it’s important to have a good understanding of how to safely share the road with cyclists. Keep at least a 1-metre distance from bicycle riders when travelling at less than 60 km/h, and make it 1.5 metres when driving faster than 60 km/h. Avoid driving in bike lanes, always check your mirrors and blind spots before turning or changing lanes and watch out for bike riders entering the road in Coburg’s residential streets.
  • Book your car hire in Coburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Coburg are around 62% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Coburg

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Coburg?

    Coburg is a residential area, and whether you’ll be sticking to inner-city driving or venturing out to explore the beaches at Torquay or the wineries of Yarra Valley, a compact car is ideal. If you’re travelling with kids or bringing a lot of luggage with you, then you may wish to consider an SUV or sedan for your Coburg car hire. This will give you the added room you’re looking for.

  • What’s the speed limit in Coburg?

However, be aware that it fills up to capacity pretty early in the morning, so you may not find a space. Thankfully, you can usually find free all-day parking not too far from the station.

4,4 Mediocre

Jan 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

The price. But I won't rent again from here given the risk of getting charged extra for damage I did not cause.

Cons:

1- Pick was a pain. First they could not find the reservation which I had made on kayak.com and we had to wait for it to come through. Eventually it did, but it's silly that they could not just start a new reservation using the same rate instead of wasting our time. Also, the agent claimed we had to bring back the car at the time which we reserved pick up (not the time when we actually got the car) or we will be charged another day at the non-kayak rate which was almost double. 2- Next, they told us we could not rent without proof of address in Australia (where we do not live). Then told us we will be required to bring someone with an Australian address to sign off on the rental because they could not send a bill to an address overseas - that was complete BS and in the end using our overseas address was okay 3- Excess for any damage (even a little scratch) was quoted at $4000. When we returned the car, they tried to charge us for scratches that were already on the car - which we had ALREADY pointed out during the inspection at pick up. Luckily, the person who did the original inspection was there and clarified that the scratches had already been on the car when we picked it up. An overall unpleasant experience to be honest. I usually go with hertz but decided to give thrifty a try since they are cheap and now I see why. You totally get what you pay for!
