Guide

Located in South Australia, Adelaide is today the 5th largest city in the country. It offers an abundance of attractions, beautiful weather conditions and scenery that's worth exploring. To get the most out of your trip we highly advise you to book car rental in Adelaide as your form of transportation. With car hire available here, tourists can gain the freedom to explore the city and its stunning surroundings at their own pace, so don't leave it to the last minute, book today to secure a car and be prepared for your holiday to Adelaide.

Explore Adelaide

Adelaide is situated on both sides of the Torrens River, with the city centre on one side and the north of Adelaide on the other. The Mount Lofty Ranges, which are visible in the distance are great for exploring. There's also a large parkland area surrounding the city, which is great for enjoying a stroll or relaxing with a picnic.

One of the world’s greatest drives is the Great Ocean Road -- heading to Melbourne along Victoria’s southern coastline. En route it’s possible to detour via the Grampian Mountains, a fine example of the great Aussie bush.

Heading south from Adelaide, Kangaroo island is popular. It is unspoilt, teeming with wildlife, and has some lovely scenery. South Australia is also famous for its vineyards, with plenty of excellent wine-tasting opportunities open to the public among the private estates of McLaren vale and the Barossa valley.

The Adelaide hills behind the city are good for walking and have excellent views of the sunset. Located here is the curious and authentic German settlement of Hahndorf.

Heading North to Ayers rock, you can pass through the timeless, lonely, Flinders range and stop off overnight in the curious underground opal mining town of Coober pedy (escaping the heat!).

Eating Out

Once renowned for its many churches, these days the churches are outnumbered by pubs and nightclubs. RedSquare, Swish, Fumo Blue Cocktail Lounge, Mansions and Electric Circus are to name a few The city offers its visitors a huge selection of cafes and restaurants, with a fantastic choice of food and wine, the majority being South Australian wines.

Shopping

Rundle Mall is the city’s main shopping centre, with well known department stores. The eastern end of Rundle St. has some of the city centre's best restaurants fashion shops. If you like culture then Adelaide has many galleries, museums, libraries, and also it's university called North Terrace, which runs parallel.

Transport

The streets of Adelaide are in a grid like array, so tourists will be able to find their way around far easier than some cities. In the middle is Victoria Square, and running through is the main street King William.

The nearest Airport is Adelaide Airport located a short 13 minutes drive west of the city centre. Car hire at Adelaide Airport can be purchased online with us from leading suppliers Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Redspot Sixt and Thrifty. If this is your arrival destination then please remember to arrange vehicle collection here.

Airport shuttle services operate to and from Adelaide city centre and the airport if car hire is not an option for you. Getting around the city is easy and cheap with their very own Metro and efficient public bus services. However public services are limited if you wish to travel further afield into Adelaide's surrounding lands.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
