JUCY cars at Melbourne Airport

Melbourne is a cool city, but know what’s cooler? The freedom to explore the whole state! Whether you’re planning a quick weekend break or looking to travel across Victoria, we’ve got a range of rental cars and two Melbourne branches to get your road trip started.  

Victoria offers stunning scenery, natural wonders, fun-and family-filled attractions, and an abundance of native animals.   

Journey one of the world’s most famous coastal drives along the Great Ocean Road. Spend time uncovering the treasures in the Otway Ranges. Or head inland to the Great Alpine Ranges where the scenery is the kind you have to upgrade your photo storage for.  

How do we know all these cool travel tips? We make it our business to! You’ll find our website loaded with itineraries and trip advice. Plus, our JUCY crew is on hand with free travel advice and assistance. Call us on 1800 150 850 to find out more.

When you land at Melbourne Airport, you want one thing: to bring your travel plans to life finally! We’re all about making your dreams a reality ASAP, so we speed things up with a shuttle from the airport to our nearby branch. And guess what? It’s free!  

Here’s what you need to know to catch it: 

  • Got your bags and cleared all the important parts of the airport? Great! It’s now time to give us a call on our freephone number: 1800 150 850. Punch in 1 to tell our crew that you’re ready for your shuttle.  
  • Exit the airport and cross either pedestrian crossing. There are signs for the hotel and airport buses; follow these and wait at this stop. You’ll see a green and purple van coming towards, guess who? 
  • Our airport shuttle is available during our business hours, and the last pick-up for our car hire customers is 5.30pm on weekdays and 1.30pm on weekends.  
  • For peeps not coming to us via the airport, you’ll need to make your own arrangements. If you’re looking for the cheapest way to reach our Melbourne Airport branch, take the Skybus to the airport, then follow the steps above to catch our free shuttle. If speed is your need, an Uber from downtown will set you back around $50.

Woop! You’ve made it to our Melbourne Airport branch. Want to know what happens next?  

  • Whether you arrive on our free shuttle bus or of your own accord, a warm welcome is the first priority. You’re JUCY family now!  
  • Next, we’ll run you through the necessary paperwork and vehicle show-through. Once you’re comfortable with everything, you’re more than welcome to ask a ton of travel questions to our crew. We can’t help ourselves; we love talking road trips!  
  • Be sure to reach us by 5.30pm on weekdays,  1.30pm on weekends. That’s the latest check-in time for your JUCY car pick up 

Collecting your rental car out of our branch hours? You’ll need to pre-order to lock this in (there’s a $30 fee), and then follow these steps: 

  • Make your way to Parking Port Airport Parking (not the JUCY branch). It’s only 300m away from us, and the address is 7 Adina Court. Our friends there will be helping you with your road trip wheels. 
  • At Parking Port, hand your driver’s license and rental agreement copy to the staff there. They will then give you the keys and off you go 
  • Parking Port offers a free shuttle bus from Melbourne Airport, too (yay). You’ll need to call them on 04 8105 3018 to coordinate.  
  • Please note, for Parking Port general enquiries, the number is 03 9310 5536.

We’re not crying, you’re crying. Seriously, though, it’s not uncommon for us to feel a little something-something when a road trip ends. What we do to cheer ourselves up: we make sure it’s a great send-off!  

During our opening hours, here’s how: 

  • Drive to our branch at 1 Silicon Place in Tullamarine. You can’t miss our green and purple building! Leave a 45-minute buffer if you’re heading to the airport.  
  • Did you remember to fill up your petrol tank before you pulled in? No worries if not, a quick minor detour to the nearest petrol station at Caltex Star Mart, Sharps Road, Tullamarine will sort you out. 
  • It’s time to unpack your belongings from the boot. And the door holders. And the glove compartment. And under the seats. You get it: do a thorough check before you hand in your keys. We find some incredible items when we do our vehicle grooming! We’d love it if you could clear out any rubbish, at the same time, please.  
  • Say your goodbyes and hand in your car key.  
  • Heading to the airport? Hop aboard the next free shuttle bus. Come back anytime!  

  Dropping off out of hours? Here’s the low-down: 

  • Our after-hours drop off is offsite, at Parking Port Airport Parking. It’s about 300m from our branch, and the address is 7 Adina Court.  
  • Check the car is fuelled up, and remove all of your belongings and any trash. This is your chance to make sure no essential travel documents or koala souvenirs are left behind! 
  • Let the staff know you’re dropping back your JUCY rental, and hand them your key.  
  • Parking Port offers a free airport shuttle so let their friendly staff know that you’d like to jump on it.  
  • If you’re not going to the airport, you’ll need to make your own travel plans. We recommend you either take the Parking Port free shuttle ride to the airport, then jump on the Skybus to town. Or, you can order an Uber or cab, of course.  
  • A $30 after-hours booking fee is applied to your cost when you pre-book this service.

Making the most of your JUCY car adventure in Melbourne and Victoria

One of the greatest aspects of travel are those unexpected moments. The ‘wow, is this real-life’ experiences, sights, and scenery. The yearning to explore Australia may have come from another state or city’s attractions. However, we think that Victoria has a long list of attributes to make it worthy of your exploration.  

Picture this: jagged mountain ranges that pierce the horizon. Lush fields and wineries pepper the view through your car window. Imagine peeking through the verdant trees and sub-tropical forests to find a surprisingly broad range of native wildlife taking refuge 

The tried and true routes of the Great Ocean Road and Grampians Way are recommended for inclusion in your itinerary. But, add to that the under-visited basalt columns of Organ Pipes National Park. Or the diverse landscape and flora-and-fauna filled ecosystem of Croajingolong National Park in Gippsland. We could go on, but seriously, take our word for it: Victoria is one big road trip full of surprises!  

How you travel is up to you. Choose our compact Small Hatch; go for style and space with our Mid Hatch or Sedan. Or maybe you need an 8 Seater to take your friends or fam on an epic roadie? Whatever you choose, you’re gaining the freedom of driving the region your way. And that includes detouring to snap a pic at the Giant Koala at Dadswell Bridge and the Big Koala on Phillip Island. Just because you can.  

So, when is the best time to visit Melbourne and Victoria? We’re claiming May to March, and September to December as the optimal times to take a roadie, weather-wise. Also, December to February is our busiest period, so book ahead. You can do that on here, or by calling 1800 150 850, anytime.
