One of the attractions of a driving holiday in Melbourne is the variety of attractions and events that seem to take place within a relatively short distance from the centre of the city. In comparison with other Australian states, with the exception of tiny Tasmania, Victoria is very compact and the travel distances between towns are only a few hundred kilometres at most. As its capital city, Melbourne is the centre of frenetic activity that draws people to it from all over the planet.
Car Hire Gives the Traveler Freedom to Get Around
There is public transport available in Melbourne, but for the new traveller on a tight schedule there is simply too much to explore and experience to be tied up waiting for a bus tram. Having the use of a car for a holiday allows people the freedom to change their minds en route and detour to some attraction that has caught the eye or imagination. Passengers on a bus can only get fleeting glimpses of unexpected pleasures as they rush by, unable to stop the unstoppable.
For the best Melbourne holiday car rental experience, Alpha Car Hire is only one company to consider. Alpha Car Hire excels in price and service and since moving into the Melbourne car rental market, it has established a reputation for providing new, clean, high quality vehicles at competitive prices. Every car is safety checked before hiring and families with young children will appreciate the child car seats that Alpha have available.
The Melbourne fleet has small, compact hatchbacks that zip into tight parking spaces. Their medium family sedans and SUVs are ideal for larger groups who appreciate the extra space and comfort and who need more luggage carrying capacity. GPS equipment is available on request, and the software is always up to date so that new visitors to Melbourne can find their destinations quite easily.
Having a car to drive around Melbourne gives the visitor easy access to spectacular sporting grand finals, festivals, museums, cultural celebrations and iconic annual events known internationally such as the Melbourne Cup. A hire car gives a group greater flexibility of choice than public transport. The driver can arrange to drop off and pick up members of the party who want to experience something different from the rest of the group without having to consult timetables or find tram and bus stops.
