Box Hill/Doncaster Guide


With a long history, which includes the story of Australia's first electric tram, Box Hill, in the suburbs of Melbourne, will forever be known for a piece of Australian history. The electric tram may be long gone but it's still easy to get around the area if you invest in a rental car. Companies will provide any traveller with the means to travel freely around the area.

Box Hill has more to it than its history,  there is a large Chinese and Vietnamese community which has created a diverse culture and has ensured the city has a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafe's.

Outside of Melbourne, the region is home to Australia's largest retail and office precinct so there is always a buzzing atmosphere around the area with the amount of people who live and work there.

The Dandenong Ranges National Park is one of the natural beauties that Box Hill has to offer, and many tourists even come from Melbourne to experience the spectacular views of the city it has to offer, especially on clear days.

Another nearby area of tranquility is 'Blackburn Lake Sanctuary', which is one of the areas best known attractions, as it is one of few natural bushlands remaining in the Melbourne area. It's only a short drive to Blackburn from Box Hill and in a hire car you could be hitting the road and venturing to the other towns in the region to see what they have to offer.

With so many activities going on in Box Hill there's always plenty to do, but whether you are staying local or wishing to use Box Hill as a base for wider journeys around Melbourne, it is always advised that you rent a car.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
