Why hire a car in Adelaide

Adelaide “City of Churches” is one of Australia’s most beautiful cities. But to see it in all its glory you need to have access to a vehicle. Taxis are expensive in Adelaide, especially if you want to travel into the Lofty Mountains, while busses are inconvenient and limit your ability to get around.

Hiring a car in Adelaide is often the most cost-effective way of getting around the city. With prices starting at just $29 per day (standard rates), the cost of a hire car in Adelaide is only slightly more than a taxi transfer from the airport to the Central Business District. But you will have the freedom of enjoying your car rental for the whole day.

Not having a hire car in Adelaide will also limit the places you can explore. There are many beautiful locations to visit around the city, such as the Cleland Conservation Park and the Barossa Valley wine region, which are not accessible by public transport. So to make the most of your visit to Adelaide car hire is highly recommended.
