KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Moorabbin

  • If you want to hire an electric car in Moorabbin for eco-friendly travel, you can access EV car charging stations. If you plan on touring the city’s attractions, you can use the Chargefox EV car charging station, located at 488 South Road. If you’re planning on taking a road trip to Heatherton, you can recharge upon arrival at the Chargepoint EV station located along 20 Corporate Drive. South of Moorabbin towards Cheltenham, along the Nepean Highway, you will find another Chargepoint charging station. These charging stations offer free EV charging for paying customers of the car park.
  • Moorabbin car hire is granted only to customers aged at least 21 years. Drivers between 21 and 24 years have a limited selection of vehicles and are charged a daily young driver surcharge. Drivers are required to be in possession of a valid driver’s licence that’s been in use for more than a year. For drivers with a probationary licence, you will be charged an additional probationary licence fee. If you have a foreign licence that is not in the English alphabet, it must be accompanied by an international driving licence or a notarised English translation.
  • If you’re planning on booking cheap car hire in Moorabbin for day trips, you should be aware of the traffic congestion that happens during peak hours. Between 7:00 and 9:30 and between 16:00 and 18:00, South Road and Narre Warren North Road can get heavily congested. Keep off these roads during these periods or opt to travel early in the morning or at midday. Alternatively, plan your departure early enough, factoring in distances, fuel stops, weather and traffic. Do this by downloading maps, using GPS and taking note of alternative routes, terrain changes and major road works and detours.
  • Moorabbin is a leafy suburb in the southeast of Melbourne that will place you in an excellent position for exploring the beaches of Port Phillip Bay, Mornington Peninsula and the national parks and wineries of Yarra Valley. Car hire in Moorabbin gives you the opportunity to explore this beautiful region in your own time. You can visit the little penguin colony at The St Kilda Breakwater, take a dip at Brighton Beach, and then head out into wine country, creating a personalised tour that suits your whims on the day.
  • Though the Moorabbin Airport (MBW) will be right on your doorstep, it's not the ideal place to get car hire in Moorabbin, as it only welcomes light aircraft and flights from King Island and Devonport. If you’re flying in, you’ll most likely arrive at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport (MEL). So, whether you’re looking for luxury or cheap Moorabbin car hire, your best bet will be to pick up your vehicle from here. Though Melbourne Airport is large, all terminals are housed in one building, and you’ll find the car hire kiosks opposite Terminal 2.
  • Even if you’re familiar with Australian road rules, there’s one aspect of Melbourne driving that may take you by surprise. The hook turn is unique to Melbourne and was designed to make it easier and safer for drivers to share the road with trams. You’ll find them at intersections that include tram crossings, and if you need to turn right, you’ll need to go to the far left lane. If you have a right turn coming up, keep an eye out for signs which will indicate whether you need to get in the left-hand lane for a hook turn. If you have a GPS, it should also let you know.
  • Melbourne is home to an extensive tramline, so it’s important to know that you may be sharing the road with trams, particularly as you head towards the CBD. There are just a few easy rules to remember. First, take care not to drive in the tram lane until you’re within 50 metres of a street on which you need to turn right. If you are directly behind a tram and it stops, you need to stop behind it and give way to any passengers disembarking or boarding. Finally, remember to avoid overtaking trams on their left.
  • Book your car hire in Moorabbin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Moorabbin are around 67% more expensive than other car types, on average
