Located in south east Australia is the Garden State of Victoria. Its inland location means many of its cities are nestled on the banks of the South Pacific and filled with beautiful beaches, botanical gardens and gorgeous seafront restaurants. The state's capital and largest city is marvellous Melbourne. If you're considering hiring a car in Victoria, you'll easily reach the heart of Melbourne and be able to enjoy its many coastal delights. For a taste of its rugged cliff scenery, head to the Great Ocean Road - possibly one of the best coastal drives in the world. It takes tourists through a winding journey of world-famous surfing spots, seaside towns and koala-filled trees.
For a fun yet educational day out, rent a car in Victoria and drive to Melbourne Planetarium. Educational and informative, here you can catch live demonstrations and hands-on activities for all the family to try their hand at. Rent a car in Victoria and it's just a 40-minute drive from the Planetarium to the Australian Shark and Ray Centre. The centre offers the world's biggest shark and ray feeding experiences making it a unique attraction - the memory of this spectacular encounter will last you a lifetime.
Before heading off to Victoria, it's wise to read up on the rules of the road. Driving laws are strictly enforced here so it is wise to familiarise yourself with the speed limits. The speed limits in residential areas are between 40 and 70 km/h with a strict 40km/h in school areas. On major roads the limit is between 60 and 80km/h while on country road and highways it can be up to 110km/h. Drivers should always check to see if there are speed signs indicating otherwise.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
