KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Adelaide

  • When renting a car from any of the cheap car rentals in Adelaide, remember that you have to adhere to the strict child restraint laws any time you are driving accompanied by your kid(s). According to these laws, children must always be in a suitable child restraint device such as a booster seat, infant seat, or child safety seat. You can conveniently get your preferred child restraint device from any of the Adelaide car rentals. However, remember that you will have to incur an additional daily charge for each child restraint device you get from your car agency. Check with the local policy to determine what constitutes an appropriate seat for your child.
  • For you to rent a car from any of the cheap car rentals in Adelaide, you must be 21 years or older. However, for some car companies, you will not be able to rent a luxury car unless you are 25 years or older. The same age requirements apply to the additional drivers. At the time of picking up your car, you must present yourself with two key documents. A driver’s license, which has to remain valid for the entire rental period, is the first document you should have. Additionally, you must have a major debit card or credit card in your name.
  • If you need to have a unique experience with cheap car rentals in Adelaide, consider hiring electric cars. These cars are always quiet, economical, and affordable in Adelaide. They are found in several car rentals agencies such as Budget, Enterprise, Avis, and Alamo. You won’t be stranded on a place to charge electric car rentals in Adelaide, for the city has around 54 electric car charging stations which are public and private. Some of the well-liked electric charging stations in Adelaide include Adelaide Central Market Car Park, Hindmarsh Square, and UPark on Grote Street.
  • 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 rental car directly at one of the on-site rental agencies, including Thrifty, Enterprise, and Europcar. The car rental 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 $40 or less
  • Book your rental car in Adelaide at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Adelaide are around 45% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Adelaide are around 64% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Adelaide

  • 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 gas 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.

  • 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.

  • How much does it cost to rent a car in Adelaide?

Cons:

Else, if I had time and opportunity to argue and go elseware I would have. I will not get stuck like this ever again. Also, I reported that the small car pulled to the left and the rear disc callipers were scraping loudly.

I had booked an SUV, but on arrival was offered a Camry Hybrid instead. After explaining my husband would have difficulty getting in and out of a sedan, I was then offered a Mitsubishi SUV. Staff were professional. The car was clean, performed well with no issues. I was, however, a little peeved that I was charged over $23 international transaction fees by my credit card provider for the payment I made when booking the car online.

Cons:

The only thing I can complain about is the entrance into the rental car return is VERY poorly marked. This isn't hertz's fault, but rather the airport's fault.

My experience was fine the only issue was that due to my husbands age he was unable to drive the car and he feels that he is discriminated against due to his age and he feels that older people has more experience and more patience when driving. The order stated that the car would fit 2 suitcases and 5 people and we were only able to get 2 suitcases and 2 adults in the car.

the confirmation receipt emailed to me said pick up at 1200. I arrived at 1200 to find the placed closed. There was no mention of pick up BEFORE or BY1200 and no hours on the receipt. I could have easily picked it up earlier. Incredibly inconvenient. I had to make other arrangements and lost $118 insurance. I still get angry when I get reminded. I tried ringing the hire car company but they just kept saying 'so sorry'.

retty poor for an airport rental company. Should have read reviews first as I wouldn’t have booked with them if I had. Arrived at Adelaide airport and called for the shuttle bus and was told that the last one had left, they were about to close and I wouldn’t be able to collect the car until the next day!? WTF Nowhere during the booking process did I see that you need to be at the shuttle LATEST 5:30pm If that happens go to, I suggest going to the Budget rentals office at the airport. They had the best price and vehicles compared to Avis and Hertz (who wanted $500+$100 bond for 3 days small car rental) 😳

Very cheap car hire. Unfortunately pick up/drop off not located at the airport. Was a bit of a mission to organise shuttle pick up unable to get through on number provided on website. Man was quite rude when we returned the car, we advised that the tyre pressure was low as came up on the dash, he was quick to say we must have popped the tyre. Didn’t appreciate his manner, however no issues during handover.

I booked and paid for an Audi Q5 and was given a RAV4 after payment. Appears problem is with Expedia. As kayak booking says Q5. Europcar say they had no record of the Q5 and instead allocated a RAV4. Even the Europcar attendant thought it was a very expensive price for a RAV4.

I loved the car I had it’s amazing

The preauthorisation for a debit card which was $400 and a cc was $100 is a bit harsh.

Pros:

From pick up to drop off, the Europcar team was great. After returning the car a few minutes before the office closed, I realized that I left my prescription sunglasses in the car. We were flying back early the next morning, so I could only pick them that day. I ran to Europcar and was able to catch the last employee as he was leaving the garage. He called the other representative to let me into the car. She came back to allow me to collect my sunglasses. Really went above and beyond! Would recommend to anyone.
