KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mildura

  • Parents travelling with little ones should be aware that Australian car seat regulations apply to hire vehicles. You’ll need to have the correct car seat or booster for each child travelling with you. Up to the age of six months, Australian standards require that babies use a rear-facing car seat. They can then transition to a forward or rear-facing child car seat up until the age of four. Approved booster seats are suitable until children reach the age of seven. However, it’s advisable for older kids to continue using their booster seat until they are at least 145 cm tall.
  • Since Mildura lies on the border, there are a couple of differences between Victorian and New South Wales road rules to be aware of. In Victoria, you can leave a two-second gap between you and the car ahead of you. However, in New South Wales, this would be considered tailgating and could incur a fine and demerit points. So, remember to leave at least a three-second gap in NSW. Another crucial law to remember in Victoria: it’s illegal to leave your car unattended with the window more than 5 cm down. However, in New South Wales, the law states that the window of an unattended car can’t be more than 2 cm down.
  • Situated in rural Victoria on the border of New South Wales, Mildura has no toll roads to worry about. However, there are some roads in the region that you may not be able to traverse with your Mildura hire car. Whether you book cheap car hire in Mildura or an SUV, your hire agency may not permit you to take the vehicle on any dirt or gravel roads. So, if you’re heading to Mildura to go camping or explore the pink lakes and salt flats of Murray Sunset National Park, check with your hire car company before using dirt roads. Many of the dirt roads in the region are a deep, rich red, so if you use them without telling your hire car agency, they’ll likely figure it out.
  • Car hire in Mildura is a good idea to give you freedom of movement, as there are many interesting things to see in the surrounding areas. The charming town of Wentworth is only around 30min drive away, and Red Cliffs and Trentham Cliffs are about a 15min drive from Mildura. There are numerous national parks that can easily be reached by car, including Mungo National Park and Murray Sunset National Park.
  • Car hire in Mildura is easy. Mildura Airport (MQL) is small, and the car hire desks for Avis, Budget, Thrifty and Hertz are located in the airport building. Hertz and Thrifty promise to meet all bookings of flights, so it doesn’t matter what time you arrive. Just head over to one of the desks on arrival and the car hire staff will take it from there. A good idea is to compare prices through KAYAK and book in advance to save you time at the airport.
  • Mildura is in the state of Victoria, so it follows the state’s traffic laws. Pedestrian crossings are strongly observed, so be sure to slow down when approaching them. To drive, your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) must be below 0.05 %, so be careful when visiting the many wineries in the area. There are a few roundabouts in the town, and you must give way to traffic travelling from your right at these circles.
  • Mildura is a relatively small and quiet town, so driving here should be a breeze. For Mildura car hire, as with any remote country town, the main concern is kangaroos. Avoid driving at dusk and dawn or drive slower and with more caution; kangaroos often hop across the road and can cause accidents because they are hard to see with the fading light. Other than that, you shouldn’t have any problems.
  • Book your car hire in Mildura at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Mildura are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average
