I just booked Dolphin as a backup at Xmas on Hotels.com and it then gave me car hire options and they had come right down.

I noticed hire for next May has dropped by quite a bit( still high compared to 2019) so itís steps in right direction

This is great - we are flying into Melbourne next May - first 2 nights are at Hard Rock - thinking it may be good to arrange from there rather than do the drive from the airport.

How will you get from the airport though? Melbourne is quite a distance from Hard Rock hotel, just over 1hr 15mins so a taxi isnt going to be cheap for that distance and may eat into your savings. I suppose it would really depend on what the saving was as to whether itd be worth it. Unless of course you have a free transfer included in your holiday!

Maybe get a 24 hour car hire from Melbourne Airport to universal hotel. Just an option

Yes of course - Uber quoting approx $82. Although I have never used Uber so not sure if that will go up with surge pricing.

I did that from Miami one year - big car for luggage and then swapped to a convertible at Disney. Was hoping not to drive as I like to have a wine with dinner etcÖcanít do that if I am pick up the car. So used to DME from MCO!

Hopefully its the beginning of a trend but the prices of car hire have always fluctuated on a daily basis.

Not even close for our dates in December, they're well over £1000 and in some cases £1500 for a large car or standard suv. Costco were £650
