The car was very recent, the pick up of the car was fast. I recommand this agency.I was credited the double of the basic price. I hadn't any explication about that. I'm waiting for information about this confusion.

Disappointed, terrible serviceDisappointed about the service and staff here. 
I rent a car from 11:38 11/11/2016, for 4 days till 15/11/2016; then ask for 1 day extension till 16/11/2016 and did ask for return car late at 5pm on 16/11 instead of 12:00pm. A staff said it was fine and didn't mention anything about the charge we need to pay after 12:00pm. 
I returned a car at 5:00pm on 16/11/2016 and was charged for 2 days extension and was told because any hours after 12:00pm was considered 1 more day rental. Another thing is that there was a cratched in the car before i took. when i returned, the staff went straight away to the cratched and told me to be charged for that. But i took some photos before i took the car , i told them about that then he said it's ok. so terrible.

The car was great and had no issuesI hired the car expecting to pay the quoted price on the website. Instead when I arrived to Avis with my itinerary in hand for the week ahead I was charged double by hidden fees for my being 23years old. Not a word was mentioned about by the website nor the staff until the keys were being handed to me and asked to sign the paper work. At that moment in time it’s too late to go through another rental agency or cancel plans so I had to bite the bullet. Please read all fine print and ask questions before you book.

The carThe service - please tell people the name of the car park where they need to drop the car off! There are no signs until you actually are inside. We lost half an hour trying to find it in traffic. That really ocershaded our trip.

Top tips for hiring a car in Richmond

  • Explore Richmond’s winding roads around the Yarra River and get an escape from the inner-city hustle by hiring a car. Having your own vehicle will let you quickly reach trendy northern suburbs such as Fitzroy and Brunswick without having to pass through the CBD. Richmond Train Station is great for heading south; however, attractions west or north, like Melbourne Zoo, require a changeover at Flinders St Station. A hire car is also your best option for enjoying the Mornington Peninsula, with the drive taking roughly 50min while a connection of buses and trains requires over 2h.
  • Hire offices for Avis, Budget, Europcar, Enterprise, Hertz and Thrifty are located in the hire car facility directly across from Terminal 2 at Melbourne International Airport (MEL). Accessible walkways link Terminal 1, 2 and 3 to the T123 Car Park, where you’ll need to take a lift to the ground floor. Companies with off-site branches, including East Coast Car Rentals and Alpha, have free shuttles that depart from the pick-up zone in front of Terminal 2. A hire can be the most economical option from Melbourne International Airport, as a taxi fare to Richmond costs approximately A$ 70 and a shuttle transfer around A$ 20.
  • Before and after sports matches at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (known as MCG), pedestrians abruptly cross Richmond roads in large numbers. Have patience and give way to the crowds, ensuring not to get stuck in an intersection if the lights change. Tram tracks extend along Bridge Rd and it’s important to only drive across them when you’re at an intersection with the right of way. Never speed to overtake trams and if they are approaching a stop, cars are required to stop at their rear to allow passengers to board and disembark.
  • Peak hour is worst in Richmond between 07:00–09:30 and 16:00–19:00. It’s best to avoid driving during these periods, especially along Hoddle St, which banks up with congestion from Windsor to Clifton Hill. Traffic on Swan St and Bridge Rd is particularly bad on Saturdays at 14:00 and 19:00 before sports events.
