Book with us and enjoy complimentary airport transfers from Tullamarine Airport to our depot and back (via Jetport shuttle bus). No need to worry about expensive cab or ride sharing fares anymore.
Making a rental car reservation with Alpha is easy, just select the vehicle that suits you, type all the necessary details in the booking form, and submit your reservation! Our friendly specialists will get in touch with you for confirmation and will be more than happy to discuss all costs and service questions you may have.
We take pride that our car rental rates are the cheapest in the market and if you do find a cheaper price online, send that quote to us and we will offer an even cheaper rate. Take note that we also do not have any hidden charges or booking fees and that no online credit transactions are necessary. Pay ONLY when you come to our depot to get your vehicle.
Aside from rental cars, Alpha Car Hire Melbourne also has trucks available for tradies and movers. Why rent out a removalist crew that charges at least $60 per hour when you can rent a truck for as low as $69 per day?

Remember that Alpha's still looking for a new home in Tullamarine so while we're fixing up a new depot, our friends at Jetport will pick you up and take you to your car. Just call us at 03 8592 6377 so we can arrange your transport. Same as with our original site, you still get the benefit of being transferred to and from the airport for FREE. Please wait for the white Jetport bus instead of the big purple one. When returning the car, please make sure that you show up at the depot at least 40 minutes before your check-in time so you'll have plenty of time to board.

Melbourne is a centre for inspiring art, rich culture, and great shopping. There are so many exciting things to see around the metro, that it gets a little dizzying trying to figure out where to go first. To give you a bit of inspiration for your plans, here are some of our favourite places in Melbourne:
For the serious shopper; the Direct Factory Outlets (DFO) in South Wharf, Melbourne is the place to be. With over 120 local and international brands available, you'll have a myriad of stores to shop around in. Go gaga over over amazing fashion for discounted prices, only a stone's throw away from the city centre.
Hours of shopping can be tiring so just head out to the DFO food court whenever you feel like your stomach's starting to grumble. Whether you're craving for coffee, cake, a quick snack, or even a heavier meal; the food outlets will have something for you.
If you're with your little ones, all toilet areas offer separate rooms for privacy. Each of the parents' rooms have changing tables for an easy diaper change and microwave ovens to warm the bottles.
There's plenty of parking in the DFO so you don't need to worry about taking public transportation with two armfuls of shopping bags.
Witness the best of local and international performing arts in the busiest performing arts centre in Australia. Discover the centre's arts and cultural history by taking part of one of its guided tours. Bring a part of Melbourne's inspiring art with you as you shop around the Arts Centre Sunday Market. Get a taste of Victoria's finest as the most talented local artists and producers showcase everything from handcrafted goods to freshly made delicacies.
From operas to musicals, to plays, to ballets, to dramas, to festivals, to every other avenue for showcasing culture and arts; The Arts Centre Melbourne will have something for you to enjoy.
See stunning panoramic views of Victoria's Capital with Balloon Flights Over Melbourne. Watch as the capital wakes from its serene slumber to transform into a bustling metropolis, all with a spectacular view of the Melbourne sunrise. Take photographs of landmarks, stunning parks, gardens, and beaches from your own bird's eye view. Enrich your experience as Chris Shorten, the Chief Pilot, shares his experience and knowledge about flying balloons over the city.
After your adventure in the skies, it's time to reward your courage with a luxurious private dining experience at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne with a five-star champagne breakfast.
A short distance from the city, stands one of the most picturesque parts of Melbourne. Bask in the Melbourne sun and get that perfect tan as you play a game of beach volleyball, swim in the seas, or even just laze around on the beach and read a book. Work on that beach body as you jog, cycle, or rollerblade around the foreshore. Stroll along the pier and meet the penguins, nestled in between the rocks. Satisfy that thrill-seeking side of you and try windsurfing, sailing, or other water sport activities.
Whether you want to be in, on, or even under the sea, St Kilda Beach has something for you. Head over to Melbourne's favourite beachside suburb to have some fun in the sun.
Escape the hustle and bustle of the metropolis and enjoy the serene flora and fauna of Phillip Island. Waddle on to the wild side in Penguin Parade; let the little ones feed the koalas in the Koala Conservation Centre; get a taste of the country life and bond with the farm animals in Churchill Island; and explore the fantastic scenery of the coastline from the cliff top boardwalks of the Nobbies Centre.
For the side of you that thinks outdoor activities and motorsports are sexy, head out to the Phillip Island Circuit to satisfy your need for speed. They have everything from F1 Triathlons to custom car shows, to car and motorcycle races, to even family events like go-karting.
Enjoy the spectacular views around the island, meet the quirky animals in the centres, and get together with racers and enthusiasts around the world. Head out to Phillip Island for a fantastic escape.
