Great Ocean Road in Adelaide

Adelaide is the fifth largest city in Australia, and is surrounded by a seemingly endless landscape brimming on the edge of outback Australia. Adelaide itself has a well developed transport system, but without car hire in Adelaide you can't fully experience the wider state of South Australia.

Adelaide boasts many world class attractions...

Most Adelaide car hire companies are based in the airport, but cheap car hire is only widely available if you book in advance. Trying to find a good deal on car hire in Adelaide in a busy airport isn't going to be easy. Once you have picked up your car rental, you'll be pleased to know it is only 4 miles into the vibrant inner-city district of Adelaide, or 6 miles to the long sweeping golden beachfronts where most hotels are located, with views across the turquoise waters drifting off into the Fleurieu Peninsula to the South.

Adelaide boasts many world class attractions, but best of all it is home to one of the most iconic roads in Australia, the Great Ocean Road. This alone is a reason to opt for car hire in Australia, and it follows a trail south past sites such as the Umpherston sink hole, and for the more adventurous if you're prepared to travel upwards of 5 hours you will reach the white sands of the Port Fairy surfers haven and the world famous twelve apostles.

Temperatures remain pleasant all year round in Adelaide with annual mean temperatures ranging from 12-22c, but when you pickup your Australia car hire you will often be told to carry drinking water in your hire car as Adelaide is in fact one of the driest cities in Australia.
