KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Merimbula

  • When you get a car hire in Merimbula, you get greater flexibility than if you were to travel with an alternative mode of transport, such as a train or bus. This is because you are able to choose when you leave and also travel directly to your destination, rather than having to wait for the bus or train to arrive. For example, if you wanted to go to Bournda, you could get there in about 7 minutes, whereas the same journey using the bus network would take approximately 30 minutes and you’d also have to abide by the bus timetable.
  • Merimbula Airport (MIM) offers a great selection of car hire companies, such as Avis, Budget and Europcar, so you’ll find it easy to get your ideal vehicle. If you want to find the car hire agencies, you can do so with ease, as they are conveniently located in the arrivals hall of the small terminal. The companies have comprehensive opening times too, with Europcar usually being open from 08:00 to 17:00 on weekdays, 08:00 to 14:00 on Saturdays and 12:00 to 15:00 on Sundays.
  • When you get a car hire in Merimbula, you will see that it is a popular coastal town in Australia. Lots of tourists visit the town to go surfing and to see the local wildlife.

There are also lots of cyclists in Australia, and Merimbula is no different. Keep an eye out when driving, and check your mirrors when you turn.
