Get behind the wheel in Adelaide
The pride of South Australia, Adelaide is a fantastic starting point for your airport car rental. It’s a city on the rise with a growing population, thriving infrastructure and an interesting history, thanks largely to its houses of government. The roads are relatively easy to negotiate and there are numerous road trips to enjoy – whether you’re travelling north, south, east or west. It’s so easy to book your hire car with us, so you can get first-hand experience of this wonderful, sunny, travel hot-spot.
Renting your car – the basics
The beauty of our website is we collate all the top car hire brands into our database for you to choose from. All you have to do is input your travel details into the ‘Search car hire at Adelaide Airport’ tab, then click the big yellow search button. This will then reveal pages and pages of hire options – including our ‘Hot Sellers’ and ‘Best Deals’. The cheapest will be listed first, but you can filter by pick-up, class, fleet, people, availability and even transmission. So whether you’re travelling alone, as a couple, or with family, we can deliver your specific requirements.
Our easy-to-follow symbols illustrate passenger numbers, air-conditioning and other specifications of the vehicle – you will be fully informed. The car may be immediately available (where you will see a green tick) or there could be a 24-hour waiting time. You can save the quote if you don’t want to make a decision right away and refer to it later. And remember, the earlier you book, the more chance you have of getting the exact vehicle you want.
Hire companies on offer
You may wish to opt for a big-name brand, or perhaps you’ve had recommendations for a smaller, local company. Either way, whether it’s the likes of Avis, Europcar, Avis or Big Value Cars, these options are all available on the site. Located on the ground level near baggage claim at Adelaide Airport are the car rental desks. These depots are:
- Red Spot / Sixt
Don’t worry if the company you wish to book with doesn’t have a depot at Adelaide Airport, as most of them offer shuttles so you can collect your vehicle quickly. Some are located very close to the airport, just outside terminal grounds. The filter on our home page is a handy tool for checking the pick-up options. Once you’ve booked, we will email you confirmation.
A guide to driving in Adelaide
Due to the high temperatures, make sure the air-conditioning is exactly what you want in your hire car… it can get pretty sweltering. A friendly and welcoming city, the roads are relatively open-plan with no nasty surprises and there are only two main highways. However, signage can be patchy at best, so maybe invest in a GPS. Here are some more handy tips:
- The default speed limit is 50kph and seat belts are a legal requirement for the driver and all passengers.
- Make sure you have the right of way – buses and trams often take precedence.
- Always give way to the right.
- Parking your hire car is relatively easy in Adelaide, although you may have to pay in the CBD.
- Do not take a U-turn at a traffic light.
Peace of mind and ready to start your holiday

Where to go next
Planning to journey away from the city? Look no further than the Adelaide Hills and Barossa. Australia is blessed with numerous wineries and Adelaide has some of the best. The Yorke Peninsula is a popular spot, with untouched beaches and second-to-none views, while Victor Harbour is a beautiful journey south, taking in the Fleurieu Peninsula.
