Adelaide Airport (ADL)

1 James Schofield Dr, Adelaide Airport SA 5950, Australia

A gateway into South Australia, Adelaide Airport is a great place to pick up a hire car if you want to explore the city or hit the open road and enjoy the magnificent sights further afield — after all, Australia has some of the best road trips in the world! More than seven million people pass through Adelaide Airport annually. Each year, we help thousands find and compare great car hire deals.

Finding a great deal

We compare a number of car hire companies at Adelaide Airport (both major companies like Hertz and Thrifty, and local brands like Redspot and East Coast Rentals) to bring you exclusive prices on a range of cars (including luxury vehicles and convertibles).

To give you even better value for money, cars often come with a free additional driver — perfect if you want to split the driving with another member of your group.

Of course, price isn’t everything — you want to be sure you’re hiring with the right company for you. To help you make your mind up, we ask each customer and rate and review their overall rental experience, from the cleanliness of the car to the speed of pick-up and drop-off. You can see their feedback when you search, so you get impartial advice before you commit to a booking.

Don’t forget: when you book with us, you won’t pay any credit card charges.

Choice of cars

No matter how much or how little driving you plan on doing, you will easily find your perfect hire car with the help of the handy search filters on the search results page. Compact and economy cars are ideal for city driving, while the roomy estates and full-size cars are great for families. You can even choose a 12-seater people carrier if you need lots of room for passengers and luggage.

If you want to drive in style, consider a luxury vehicle (something like a Mercedes-Benz E-Class) or a sleek convertible — ideal for summer road trips when you want to feel the wind in your hair!

Tips and advice

  • 1
    The airport is around 4 miles (6km) west of Adelaide city centre.
  • 2
    Most car hire companies have their pick-up counter in the terminal, giving you the easiest possible start to your holiday.
  • 3
    The airport is surrounded by a number of main roads, so you can easily access different areas of the city and beyond. It is also close to the M1 highway, which takes you to the city of Murray Bridge.
  • 4
    If you are visiting between December and February (the summer season), ensure your hire car has air conditioning to keep you comfortable in the heat.
  • 5
    When booking your hire car, don’t forget to consider how many people you are travelling with, how much luggage you will have – and how much driving you plan on doing.
  • 6
    Book your car hire as far in advance as possible to get the best price and reduce the risk of your ideal car selling out.
