Hertz in Adelaide

There are several Hertz branches for car rental in Adelaide, in both the airport and the city itself. This means you can get around South Australia’s capital at your own pace. It also gives you the freedom to explore a little further afield. Public transport may not be convenient, so choose to hire a car in Adelaide and you’ll have a practical and flexible option for getting around this stunning city.

Adelaide is a stylish, cosmopolitan metropolis with a range of things to see and do from lazing on the beach, enjoying arts events, or visiting some of the best cafés in Australia. There’s even the National Motor Museum, less than an hour’s drive from the city centre. Adelaide also has the largest Central Business District in South Australia, making it as popular with business travellers as it is with tourists. In this case, car rental in Adelaide will get you from meeting to meeting quickly and easily, leaving you time to relax and enjoy your stay.

Driving and Parking in Adelaide

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 25 to rent a car in Adelaide, or over 21 for certain vehicles if paying an age differential charge. If you are from outside Australia you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Adelaide, take a look at our page about renting a car in Australia.

When you drive in Adelaide you will need to abide by Australia’s rules of the road. The main things to remember are that in Australia, you drive on the left and pass on the right. It is mandatory to wear a seatbelt for both drivers and passengers, and children under seven must use an appropriate car seat. These can be hired from most Hertz branches. Drink driving is prohibited and carries very serious penalties, as does using a mobile phone while driving. If you are planning to visit any rural areas, you should take care to plan your trip beforehand, as driving in these areas can be tricky if you are not used to the roads.

Parking in Adelaide is easy, with several commercial car parks around the city, as well as paid street parking. Fees vary from area to area so do check signs when you park to ensure you are paying the right amount at the right time.

Driving in and around Adelaide

Key Routes

Because of the city’s grid pattern, you will find it easy to navigate when you rent a car in Adelaide. A variety of A roads intersect to form ring roads around the city centre. The A21 is the innermost of these and allows you to go around the centre and the CBD without getting caught in traffic in the middle of the city. Beyond this, routes such as the A1, the A6, the A13 and the A17 will take you out to Adelaide’s suburbs where you’ll find excellent cafés, beautiful sandy beaches and nearby conservation parks for outdoor enthusiasts. They will also connect you with highways that take you to the rest of South Australia.

Major Highways

Adelaide’s network of highways easily connects you with South Australia’s motorway network, connecting you to other cities and regions. The M1, for instance helps to connect drivers with neighbouring Victoria, while the M2 follows the coast linking in with highways that carry you to Cape Jervis and Kangaroo Island in one direction, and Victor Harbor in another. Alternatively, the M20 connects with the A20, taking you into the north of Victoria and New South Wales. While the drives are long, they enable you to see much more of the country.
