Top Hire Car Tips in Adelaide

Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is often called the city of churches for the abundance of iconic churches in the city. Whether visiting the city or exploring Adelaide’s beautiful hills and wineries, these tips will help you get on the road safely:

  1. If planning on driving to remote areas of South Australia from Adelaide, keep in mind there may be limited services and you should plan your drive accordingly.
  2. Adelaide has a large amount of parking available, with both short and long-term options available in the CBD. If you’re looking for parking near the airport, check our list of car park providers to find the best deal.
  3. Like most capital cities, Adelaide traffic can be heavier during peak times, typically from 7:00am to 9:30am, and 3:00pm to 7:00pm. Allow extra time to get to your destination during these times, and tune in to the local radio station for traffic updates.
  4. Generally, the speed limit in Adelaide’s CBD is 50km/h, and 100km/h on highways. Always follow the sign posted speed limit and road conditions.
  5. It’s important to return your hire car with a full tank of fuel to avoid extra fees. Find affordable fuel with our free fuel price comparison app.
