Where's your accommodation?

Trust me, after 830pm, it's free all around the city.

Some even start at 7-something-pm. A few spots also have free parking for the whole of Sunday. You won't find them online, and if anything, the less who know about them, the better. If you're still unsure, I can say that I walk past these spots to/from work every weekday.

Then you should be able to find some on Flinders lane, Little Collins St, or maybe King St..

Thanks bro.
Emailed to Bayswater and got a reply from them, they do not have return location in Melbourne.
Guess I'll have to go with the big names.
Cheers!

I used economycarrentals. Pretty good deal! Remember to choose those with booths in the airport. The excess there is VERY VERY high. ANd super expensive to go with their FULL cover. Bought a third party coverage for the excess
Hi can i check where or how do i buy the third party coverage for the excess?

I used https://tripcover.com.au before. Claims works well enough as long as you have all of the required documentation. Note that they don't cover for the GST amount of any claims.
