Top tips for renting a car in Adelaide

  • Adelaide really has everything on offer, from fantastic beaches to various green spaces and parks dotted in and around the city. The best way to see it all and not miss out on anything during your stay in Adelaide, is to rent a car and explore the city in your own time. You can even go to the outer harbor and enjoy scenic views over Torrens Island and the sea.
  • Adelaide Airport is located quite centrally and is only a 20-minute drive from Adelaide’s center. Reach your hotel or next destination hassle-free by picking up a hire car directly at one of the on-site hire agencies, including Thrifty, Enterprise, and Europcar. The car hire center is located in the ground floor, next to the Baggage Claim area, and cars should be returned with a full tank to the multi-level parking garage.
  • Bear in mind that traffic stays on the left side of the road in Australia, like in England. The steering wheel is also on the right side, but thankfully most cars in Australia are automatic, so a stick shift is one thing less to worry about. For drivers not used to driving on the left side, consider getting a GPS system with the car and remember to enter a roundabout clockwise.
  • In Adelaide, it is not allowed to turn right at an intersection when the lights are red. Speed limits are strictly enforced and must be adhered to at all times. Apart from that, the city is a very relaxed one to drive in, as streets are broad, the infrastructure is good, and everything is marked clearly with signs or markings on the ground.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Adelaide for $29 or less
  • Book your rental car in Adelaide at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Adelaide are around 27% cheaper than other car types, on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Adelaide?

Travelers who visit during the Australian summer months and want to get the maximum out of the Australian sun should consider a convertible. When driving mainly through the city, opt for a smaller car, also because petrol prices are considerably higher in Australia than in the US, and a compact car will use up less gas.

What's the speed limit in Adelaide?

Remember that all speed limit signage is given in kilometers per hour in Australia, so make sure you know the conversions (but the speedometer is also on km/h, so it should be no problem). Generally, 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed in built-up areas and 100 km/h (62 mph) is permitted on rural roads and highways.

How are gas prices in Adelaide?

Petrol is considerably more expensive in Australia than in the US. The average price per liter lies at AUD$1.45, which is about $4.24 USD per gallon. Most petrol stations in Adelaide will require drivers to go into the station to pay at the counter, where both cash and cards are accepted.

Where are the best places to park in Adelaide?

There are various park possibilities in Adelaide, though the easiest is still to opt for a hotel with a parking space included. Alternatively, there is metered on-street parking, where some machines only take the exact amount of coins and no cards, so check beforehand. There are also commercial parking lots like UPark or a P+R or the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Park 'n' Ride, from which public transport operates into the city.
