Driving Tips for you and your Adelaide car hire

Arranging car hire in Adelaide is a great way to explore the city and surrounds, without relying on public transport. Just make sure you’re licensed, alert, and know the rules of the road before you head off! Here are a few Adelaide driving tips to keep you at the top of your game.

  • As with most Australian states, in South Australia you need to be at least 21 years old to rent a car. Some rental operators will add a young drivers’ surcharge for those between 21 and 25, so take a good look at the prices when you are comparing and contact our Reservations team if you are unsure. If you’re travelling from overseas, make sure your license has been translated into English so there’s no doubt on the validity of your qualification.
  • As with most popular Australian locations, Adelaide's peak periods are over Christmas and during the summer months, especially when the Tour Down Under is running (January). School holidays and Easter are also busy - booking in advance will help give you a better price and wider choice.
  • Adelaide is Australia’s fifth largest city, and for that reason can still get fairly busy during peak times. If you’ve got somewhere to be in a hurry, be sure to avoid early morning (6-8am) and early evening (5-7pm).
  • If you’re an Aussie yourself or you’ve taken other car rental trips in Australia, you might be expecting to see toll roads during your trip to Adelaide. Well you’re in luck, because you’ve chosen a part of the country that has none! Enjoy it while you can.

Discover a Wealth of Excitement with a rental car in Adelaide. Once considered a sleepy city, today Adelaide is a vibrant hub for food, art, music, and festivals that compete with the attractions you’ll find in other top Australian vacation destinations. With a collection of secret laneways and a growing list of exciting new places to eat and drink and things to do, there’s no shortage of fun to be had while visiting for work or holiday. DriveNow does the legwork to provide a simple process that lets you easily find and compare pricing from all the major car rental brands in Adelaide, the surrounding suburbs and at Adelaide Airport.
