Top Tips

  • Adelaide is an easy city to drive around, with free-flowing roads and reasonably priced parking.
  • Drink driving is taken very seriously in Adelaide and the police regularly do random breathalyser tests. The blood alcohol limit in Australia is 0.05%.
  • The default speed limit for South Australia is 100km/hour.

Which companies offer best value in Adelaide?

Some companies (Thrifty, for example) often have special offers on their cars, so you get an ‘extra’ included in the rental price (such as additional drivers or a bike rack). These offers can help save you money, especially if you want to split the driving with someone else.

However, we know there is more to good value than a freebie — you also want to be sure you’re hiring with a trusted company. To help you make an informed choice, we show ratings and reviews left by previous customers next to each car listing; that way, you can see how the companies compare in terms of customer satisfaction and value for money.

Day trips from Adelaide

Glenelg: Only 12 kilometres from Adelaide city centre, Glenelg is a charming seaside town with white, sandy beaches. In this Adelaide suburb, you can soak up the sun in the alfresco restaurants, swim with wild dolphins, hop on a fishing boat or go diving. Taking the kids? Then head to the Beachhouse, an entertainment centre that offers mini golf, water slides, a carousel, dodgem cars and much more — best of all, entrance is free.

Kangaroo Island: Jump on the Sea Link ferry to Kangaroo Island, where you will find sea-lions sunbathing on sandy beaches, koalas chomping eucalyptus leaves and of course, kangaroos. It’s not just the wildlife that is diverse — along the 509 kilometres of coastline, you will find vineyards, beautiful rock formations, sand dunes and bushland.

Adelaide Hills: The lush green hills are a cool change from the red arid outback that lies beyond. Known as the ‘land of the long lunch’, the Adelaide hills are brimming with farms, vineyards and restaurants that cook up delicious dishes made from the local produce. If you’re more of a DIY type of person, you can pick up fresh produce at the farm stores, pack a picnic rug and enjoy a lazy lunch in the outdoors.
