Getting your wheels under way in "Marvelous Melbourne"


Melbourne is a harbor town located on the central east “Space Coast” of Florida.

This peaceful city is conveniently situated an hour south of the Kennedy Space Center and one and a half-hours east of Walt Disney World.

The city of Melbourne is unique in that a small portion of the town is located on a barrier island, with the Indian River Lagoon separating the island from the mainland. You’ll also find several blocks of cafes, ice cream parlors, antique shops, gift shops and historical sites in turn-of-the-century buildings.

Nearby Melbourne Beach offers pristine white sand for swimming, sunning, diving, and surfing. The network of bridges and ferries is complicated and a car is a must.

Almost every town in Florida has at least one of our car rental service outlets listed on these pages. Some have several. You will also find access to our car hire in most hotels and from the major rental companies . . .

Car hire for holidays in Florida

Located on the landward side of the lace work of islands that houses Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral, the city of Melbourne is another of Florida's raw young towns, bought about by the spread of the railway. A boardwalk village was formed in the 1880's and then the railway arrived in the late 1890s.

This classic example of the Southern country town has a wonderful array of water sports and is only 75 square miles in area. But the barrier island, the atlantic coast beaches and the lacework of roads and ferries and bridges in which the area abounds, need a car. You can get a car at our airport office, or by clicking on the booking button now, and being sure one will be waiting for you on arrival.
