  • Written by DriveMycar

Having a chauffeur meet you at the airport usually means you’re a pretty big deal. But if you’re flying into Melbourne, you can knock this off the bucket list for a lot cheaper than you think.

 

The rockstar greeting is all part of the experience with a new luxury car rental service that has launched at Melbourne Airport. Starting from only $73 a day, business travellers and tourists can travel at a level of luxury usually reserved for the rich and famous, with a range of new Mercedes-Benz cars available for hire including A-Class, B-Class, CLA, C-Class, X-Class and GLA vehicles.

 

The VIP treatment extends to the car pickup, with customers able to bypass the usual crowded car rental desks and having to hike over to the car park with their luggage. On arrival at Melbourne Airport, customers are whisked away from the domestic or international terminals by a valet driver, who chauffeurs them to the nearby Mercedes-Benz Melbourne Airport dealership to collect their vehicle.

 

The initiative is being offered by DriveMyCar, Australia’s largest online peer-to-peer car rental service, in partnership with Mercedes-Benz Melbourne Airport, a member of LSH Auto Australia. LSH Auto Australia is a part of LSH Auto International, the world’s largest Mercedes-Benz passenger car dealer group.

 

DriveMyCar CEO, Chris Noone, commented: “We’re excited to work with Mercedes-Benz Melbourne Airport to introduce new ways for people to access some of the best luxury cars in the world. Mercedes-Benz cars are exceedingly popular on DriveMyCar, and providing access to a luxury experience for visitors to Melbourne Airport is yet another example of DriveMyCar innovating in the car rental industry.

 

He continued: “This collaboration will appeal to tourists, business travellers and those seeking to experience Mercedes-Benz for weekends away or extended vehicle evaluations. We know that user experiences in rental vehicles can often influence purchasing decisions down the line, and we are confident this will help drive home the value of Mercedes-Benz to new audiences.”

 

Dealer principal of Mercedes-Benz Melbourne, Vaughan Blackman, commented: “This is a great initiative to allow new customers and travellers to access and experience a range of luxury Mercedes-Benz vehicles. We are excited to be partnering with DriveMyCar to help deliver a simple, convenient and premium vehicle rental service. It is also in line with our LSH Auto brand promise to our customers: “YOU COME FIRST. ALWAYS.” We feel this is a great addition to the service offerings from our Melbourne Airport dealership and LSH Auto Australia.”

 

The new service, available now, can be found online here.
