5.6 Okay8 Jan. 2019
car ok, but communication not so muchPros: car was ok, 70.000km on the odometerCons: I wanted to drop off the car a day early, so I called the support line and was told that I could. But at the station I found it had no key drop box. Calling the support line again, I was then told by a different agent that I could not return the car at that station at that time (Sun afternoon) and the only other option was to pay ~$60 extra for a dropoff at the airport (+ travel expenses back from there). I decided against that and so had to return the next day.

Top tips for hiring a car in Clayton

  • Hire a car in Clayton to enjoy the ability to move around Melbourne’s southeastern suburbs in your own rhythm. Having a car will allow you to drive directly west towards beaches, such as Brighton and Black Rock, rather than catching a connection of buses or trains that journey in and out of the CBD. It requires roughly 1h 30min to reach the Kokoda Track Memorial Walk from Clayton by public transport; however, a car will get you there in about 30min. Likewise, the trip on public transport to Mornington is more than halved to approximately 45min driving a hire car from Clayton.
  • Hire company offices at Melbourne International Airport (MEL) are located in the car hire facility on the ground floor of the T123 Car Park. This can be easily reached with a short walk from all of the terminals. No shuttle bus is required as the vehicles are parked directly behind the reception offices. A hire car will make your trip from Melbourne International Airport to Clayton much smoother, as a taxi fare will cost about A$ 85 and the closest shuttle service drop off is in the CBD.
  • Cyclists are common in Clayton and surrounding suburbs so it is important to repeatedly check your side mirrors while driving. Always provide at least 1.5 m of space when passing bikes. Hook turns are common in central Melbourne and drivers must turn right from the left lane by waiting in the intersection until the lights turn amber. Be careful not to obstruct tram tracks and only cross them when intersections permit. Pedestrian traffic is heavy in certain areas of Clayton and it’s best to slowly reverse out of parks.
  • Traffic on the roads in Clayton is worst between 07:30–09:30 and 16:30–19:00. Congestion is particularly evident on Princes Hwy, heading west in the morning and east during the evening. Delays can also be expected along Centre Rd and at the Clayton Station level crossing.
