Car rental rates in Adelaide

The South Australian capital of Adelaide is set on the southeast coast of the state and makes for a great base for a few days of exploring the state by hire car.


Aside from the city’s historic attractions, it is also within easy driving distance of the Adelaide Hills and the famous wine growing region of the Barossa Valley. Further afield, Kangaroo Island is a favourite among visitors, while if you’re looking for something more rugged, the Flinders Ranges might appeal.

    The per-day rates of some rental cars may fall if you book for a longer rental period. Prices often change around daily, three-day, five-day and seven-day periods. Also, note that the selection of rental cars available in Adelaide may be more limited if you are looking for a long-term car rental, so it’s best to compare a few different booking durations first.

    Some Adelaide City car hire providers have depots that are easier to find and get to than others. Most of the depots within the city area are found in car parks or hotels. If you can collect a car outside of the CBD area, you may find it easier to access the car hire depot.
