8.4 Excellent22 May 2017
When we finally got service at check in, the agent was very friendly and accomodating.A long queue at the airport in Ularu was very slow. For some reason, everyone was renting from Avis rather than the other agencies, so it took a long time to process all the customers. By the time we got to the counter the vehicle we had requested was no longer available, but the agent did upgrade us to a much larger vehicle.

Top tips for hiring a car in Avalon

  • Hire a car in Avalon to have the ability to cruise along the Great Ocean Road at your own pace. Avalon does not have its own train station, with Lara Railway Station being the closest at more than 7 km from Avalon Airport (AVV); and as such, a hire car is your best option of transport to and from the airport. Destinations on the coast past Geelong are tricky to get to on public transport, with the journey from Avalon to Torquay taking roughly 1h 45min rather than a 40min drive. You Yangs Regional Park can be reached from Avalon in around 25min; however, no bus services connect the parklands meaning a hire car or taxi are your only options.
  • Reception offices for hire car companies are located next to the Tourist Information Desk at Avalon Airport (AVV). Alamo, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Enterprise, Hertz, Redspot and Thrifty have desks inside the terminal and the vehicles are only a short walk from the building. Hiring a car at Avalon Airport can save you time if you’re heading to Melbourne as a bus transfer takes about 1h 10min and only departs once every hour, while the trip by car is 45min.
  • Drive cautiously around winding coastal roads as views of oncoming traffic can be obstructed by cliff faces. Tourists regularly stop along the Great Ocean Road to take pictures so it’s important to decrease your speed and keep a safe distance when passing parked vehicles. Cyclists are common on roads surrounding Avalon, and drivers must check blind spots at intersections and provide a minimum distance of 1 m when overtaking, preferably wider when driving at fast speeds. Wildlife can wander onto the roads in rural sections of Avalon, especially at dusk, and a watchful eye should be maintained to avoid collisions.
  • The Princes Fwy is the only road in Avalon that experiences considerable traffic, with the worst congestion travelling eastbound between 07:30–09:00 and westbound from 16:00–19:00. Delays are generally at their peak approaching the Geelong Ring Rd intersection.
