KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Blackburn

  • There is lots to see in Blackburn itself, but to see the best the city of Melbourne and its outskirts have to offer, you're best off in a car. You have places like the Mornington Peninsula, for example. This is a scenic spot by the sea, where you can grab some lunch and go for a swim on a hot day. There is public transport in Blackburn, but car hire will open up your options for things you can see.
  • There is a range of Blackburn car hire options at the closest airport, and they are located at the passenger terminal. On arrival, you can pick up the car opposite Terminal 3. Once you have hired your car, you only have to step outside to collect your hired vehicle from the car park, which is easy and only a short walk away. If you are touring in Blackburn, then you will even get to see some of the sights on the way to the hotel.
  • Driving around in Blackburn is fairly easy with adequate signage to guide you. You need to keep an eye out for trams, as they have the right of way; watch for the ‘T’ on the traffic lights (for trams). Pedestrians and bicycle riders will be around in numbers at peak hours, which will be from 14:00 to 18:00.
  • You may need to pay extra attention to trams if you have not driven in a city with them before. It would pay to read up on the rules, but you mostly just need to give way to them. You need to be cautious on the outskirts of the city when driving a car hire in Blackburn, especially in the early hours and in the evening, as you will see wildlife such as anteaters and kangaroos crossing the road at these times. This can cause huge amounts of damage to the animal, the car or yourself, so please be careful.
  • Book your car hire in Blackburn at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Blackburn are around -56% cheaper than other car types, on average

Car hire insurance in Blackburn

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Blackburn car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Blackburn.
