About our Industry

Hire cars differ from taxi's in they can only operate after being previously booked beforehand. They are usually luxury sedans or people movers, stretched limousines or hybrids and non-luxury vehicles.

Hire cars do not have meters – fares are pre-set by the owner/driver.

Currently there are more than 2700 Hire Car licenses in Victoria.

The Fels 2012 Taxi Industry Inquiry found that hire cars in Victoria provide a high level of service at the luxury and premium end of the commercial passenger vehicle market. On the whole, hire car customers have higher levels of satisfaction and experience fewer problems with these services than taxi customers, particularly in the Melbourne metropolitan area.
