Inexpensive, a breeze to handle and good on mileage, it’s no coincidence that compact cars are the most booked type of rental in Geelong. Tour this city in one of these and you’ll be able to fit into tight parking spaces and easily navigate traffic. A compact is ideal for city breaks or quick road trips. But they’re not your only options. Go even smaller with an economy model or bigger with a full-size or premium — the choice is all yours!
Geelong has lots to offer — but there’s even more to discover farther afield. Get behind the wheel of a rental car and you can drive around the region at your own pace. You’ll want to get to these awesome spots:
- Bendigo is 150 kilometres away and has plenty to keep you busy. To begin with, there’s Bendigo Stadium, Bendigo Town Hall and Bendigo Art Gallery. Your biggest decision here will be choosing where to go first!
- Make sure you put Melbourne on your road trip itinerary. Around 64 kilometres from Geelong, head straight for Princess Theatre when you cruise into town. Brighton Beach and Melbourne Arts Centre are also worth a visit.
- Buchan Caves is a photographer’s dream. Around 339 kilometres from Geelong, this spot shouldn’t be missed if you love the great outdoors.

Geelong rules state drivers must be 21 and over to rent a vehicle. However, young drivers will be subject to a surcharge and some choice restrictions. Most suppliers impose a daily young renter fee in addition to the standard rental rate. This covers the higher risk of damage or accident. While many car categories (like economy and compact) are available to young motorists, restrictions generally apply to luxury cars.
The main things are a valid driver’s license and a credit card in the same name. Car rental companies will offer you insurance, which is optional. But you may have to provide proof of alternative coverage if you opt out. Check with your supplier to avoid any issues.
If you’re renting a vehicle in Geelong or planning a road trip around Australia, get ready to drive on the left. Also, the driver’s seat and some controls will be on a different side to what you’re used to in the U.S. This may feel unfamiliar at first, so take things slow to begin with.
Yes, your current U.S. license is enough for you to legally drive in Geelong. But if you’re the sort of holiday maker who likes to dot your i’s and cross your t’s, get yourself an International Driving Permit. It’s relatively simple to arrange.
