What to Explore with Your Car Hire in Victoria?

From snow-capped mountains to sandy beaches, zoos, aquariums, historic buildings, pubs and cafés, white-water rafting, spas, wildlife and wineries, and drives along Victoria’s stunning coastline, there’s always something special to see and do in Victoria.

Eat, drink and indulge your way through Victoria from the outstanding wines of the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley to Melbourne’s pop-up restaurants and Murray’s picturesque riverbank cafés. Inner-city pubs, alley restaurants, hatted dining rooms, and cozy country hotels tantalize the senses. And then, you might want to wash it all down with a pint of artisan beer from a rustic brewery.

Explore the city for Mexicana, Spanish tapas, Chinatown pleasures, coffee shops, rooftop bars, and trendy Indian cuisine. Choose a route and hit the road for a weekend of indulgence by chatting with locals over beers and steak in an inner-city pub, or settle down for an opulent eight-course tasting menu.

Find the items for a very Melbourne style in your closet. Explore vast and small shops, pop-ups, and expensive boutiques presenting unique and creative apparel from Melbourne and beyond.

Find favourite designers, huge names, and niche fashion in magnificent Victorian-era arcades, department stores, laneways, and high streets.

Our indie fashion game is strong, with unique labels and intriguing shops in beautiful Melbourne venues, from the downtown to our distinct neighbourhoods. Shopping strips and boutique collections can be found in easy-to-find fashion hotspots.

Whether you’re looking for goods for a simple picnic or an elaborate banquet, you’ll be spoilt for choice in Queen Vic, Prahran, and South Melbourne markets. Explore limitless glass cabinets of delectable deli goods – tiny things, excellent cheeses, marinated everything – as well as organic wines, freshly made coffee, and delicious baked goodies.

At Fitzroy’s Rose Street Artists’ Market, you may find local artists’ artworks, jewellery, and clothing, or go to Fed Square for cheap books. In the summer, visit coastal night markets for some twilight shopping therapy, and visit suburban collectors’ markets to peruse eclectic collections of, well, everything. You’ll almost certainly discover what you’re looking for, as well as a few things you weren’t expecting.

In Victoria, there’s truly something for everybody to indulge on.

Yes, however, the person with the credit card must be on the Rental Contract as the main driver so they will need to have a current open driver’s licence written in English.

You may receive a refund of your booking fee, minus any applicable cancellation fees. We do not charge cancellation fees for bookings cancelled more than 48 hours before pickup. Otherwise, for cancellations within or less than 48 hours of pickup, a fixed $75 cancellation fee will be applicable.

We charge a full day’s fee if the vehicle is returned 2 hours beyond the drop-off time.
For example, if a full-day rental is from 8:00 am to 8:00 am the next day, and you use the vehicle from 8:00 am to 10:00 am the next day, you exceed the 2-hour limit. If you have any questions, please get in touch with our customer service team.

All vehicles are covered with 24-hour roadside assistance, provided by the relevant state automotive club. This includes all mechanical breakdowns. Roadside Assistance does not cover non-mechanical defects such as lost keys, keys locked in the vehicle, flat battery due to lights being left on etc. Costs charged can be obtained by contacting Customer Service on 1300 227 473.

All Alpha vehicles which are rented have comprehensive insurance with a standard liability that is applicable to renters that may be reduced with one of Alpha’s waiver options. For passenger vehicles (hatchbacks, sedans, family cars, SUVs, 8-seater vans and Utes) the standard liability is $4,400 for drivers over 21 years of age. For more information on our Standard Liability Protection Cover visit our Terms & Conditions.

What are the exclusions to liability waivers?

The following are not covered by the Total Protection Liability Waiver, Premium Protection Liability Waiver, or the Collision Damage Liability Waiver:

  • Reversing damage
  • Overhead damage
  • Undercarriage damage
  • Water damage
  • Hail damage
  • Negligence or Abuse

Please note that you will not have the benefit of Alpha’s insurance if the rental vehicle is driven on unsealed roads.

If you run a business with ongoing transportation needs, you know as well as anyone that handling maintenance, inventory and financing can be both an expense and a hassle. If you need to supplement your fleet for a short-term or longer term, our friendly team will happily provide a quote.

Alpha provides an excellent array of well-priced, high-quality vehicles for hire. Their service - from the airport shuttle right through the collection of the car - is efficient, friendly, and generally pleasant. On return, the efficiency is magnified, and the shuttle back to the airport is timely and comfortable. The quality of the end-to-end service is very high. I highly recommend Alpha if you ever need a car hire when flying in from Brisbane.

My partner and I rented a car for five day in our stay in the Gold Coast and the price was really good and affordable. The process to pick up and dropp off the car were also really fast and easy, and the car that they gave us was beautiful and really easy to drive!Gonna choose Alpha Car next time for sure! =)

Excellent service and the car I rented was value for money. But the car had fungus smell and the uplostry was dirty. Apart from these the car is good to drive with family members. I recommend this company for car hire. Hope they maintain the car with cleanliness and fungus smell removed before that hand over to customers.

Edited: changing from1 star to 4 because despite the email support being next to nothing - when I picked up second car and the aircon didn’t work consistently I called and explained the intermittent problems and water dripping on my feet and they replaced it the same day. Did waste a half day for me driving there and back but they fixed the problem and that’s most importantI have one positive. The airport shuttle driver was fabulous. But that’s about where it stops.- online communication is extremely poor- car was filthy- car was not full of petrolDespite making contact 3 times about the state of the car and fuel my messages have been ignored. I have left the car far cleaner than when I received it so if their cleaning fee is charged I’ll be annoyed- the warnings about the cleaning fee are quite intense and definitely makes one feel paranoid and unable to enjoy their journeys.Price was okay. Until I extended by 15 hours or so and then completely unreasonable for a car I had had to get up to an acceptable cleaning level of my first day.Photos only a few examples. Unfortunate that I picked the car up in the dark so didn’t see til the morning. On my hire next week I’ll be looking closer for sure.Do not tell me that this is not the ALPHA way and the next customer will benefit. I’d like to know how I will be compensated. And clearly the next customer won’t benefit as I haven’t benefited from all the previous comments with similar complaints.

Customer service is good. Picking up and returning of the car is hassle free. Car is relatively new and well maintained. Price is cheaper compared to other established companies. Shuttle service is efficient. Will definitely recommend to friends and families. Rented from 9th Dec toc 2023.

The airport shuttle was efficient. There’s a free public phone at the international airport that you can use to call for it, and we waited about 10 minutes. The purple buses are easy to spot. When we returned the car at the end of the hire the shuttle went straight away.The car was a fairly basic model with 48k km on the clock but it did the job, and was clean and in good condition. Good value. I would use them again.

Efficient check out but they missed a few comments about what grade of fuel to use and to advise me about the tire pressure warning light. Also the fuel tank in my car was not full when I picked it up.

Good cars, excellent variety and keen rates. Easy website booking. Airport pick up and drop off very good. Good people to deal with. I’ve used these guys twice and will continue on every Brisbane visit.

First time hire with Alpha and I must say it was great. Much better value than other hire companies. Was reticent about the off airport location but the shuttle was easy, virtually no waiting and drivers friendly and polite. Check-in and drop off very easy as well. Again, staff were great. Car clean and no problems.

I used Alpha 10 years back when they had just started out and loved their service back then, so when it came time to hire another car in Brisbane I sought them out. Super pleased to see their great work has paid off and they are now a massive company but have retained the small company service and vibe. Super friendly staff from the shuttle drivers, to front desk and phones. 0800 is answered quickly unlike others. Nice vehicles and great price. Will be back for sure.

Great experience renting a truck (both times). In both cases - clean interior, runs well. Hydraulic lift, A/C, cruise control were in good working order. Booked and paid online, no hassle pickup and drop off, friendly staff. Also, great price on truck rental, looks like the best in the city. Don't forget to fill that tank when returning the vehicle.

The business is located in the perfect spot in Hendra and there is a service station only metres away, making it super easy to refuel just before returning the car. The staff are quick, friendly and efficient. The car I had was relatively new and in excellent condition (although it did need a more thorough clean, which could be due to my last minute booking). The shuttle bus runs regularly and the driver was extremely helpful and considerate. Overall, I was very happy with every aspect of my first experience with them. It won't be my last!
