Our Service

Car hire in Adelaide with Sixt offers you the right vehicle for your needs. If you're a business traveller, one of our luxury, air-conditioned sports models or saloons could be perfect for keeping you cool and comfortable as you travel between meetings, hotels and the airport. If you're in the city for a holiday, you might like to consider renting one of our convertibles to help you make the most of an ocean-side drive. Whatever vehicle you choose, you can be sure it will have an average age of only 3 months and will be in perfect condition. If you have your heart set on a particular vehicle, you can use our smartphone app to reserve it 30 minutes prior to pick-up. We are also pleased to offer a range of useful add-ons, including Sat Navs to help you navigate unfamiliar streets and child seats that comply with the child restraint laws for South Australia.

Traffic Infromation

Thanks to a grid system in its central business district, Adelaide is well-designed for drivers. With the exception of a main road running away at 45 degrees from each corner of the city square, most roads have a north-south or east-west orientation. The natural boundaries of the hills to the east and the ocean to the west of the city also assist with driver navigation. However, a Sat Nav is helpful, especially for anyone planning to travel outside Adelaide and for navigating from the airport to the city centre, where signage can be poor. Situated close to the A6, A2 and A5, the Sixt office is ideally located for driving into Adelaide's nearby Central Business District.

Sixt Tip

Surrounded by parkland and laid out in a grid system, Adelaide was the first freely-settled Australian city with no convict history. Despite lying close to the River Torrens, between Gulf St Vincent and the Mount Lofty Ranges, the city was once known best for its churches. Nowadays, it is Adelaide's natural attractions that are the biggest draws for visitors. The city benefits from spacious beaches, including those on the nearby Kangaroo Island, some excellent wineries, a growing number of festivals and plenty of interesting restaurants. The Central Market is the destination of choice for foodies, while cricket-lovers make for the Adelaide Oval.

Sightseeing Destinations

The Adelaide Oval is one of the world's premier cricketing attractions. Situated in the parklands between the city centre and North Adelaide, the Oval is easy to reach in your hire car from either the airport or the city centre. During the summer months, the Oval features plenty of cricket, both interstate and international. In the winter, it's the turn of state and AFL football. Whether you rent a car for a weekend or a longer period, the Oval is an easy and exciting place to visit.

Home to over 3000 animals, Adelaide Zoo is one of the city's top attractions and one of Australia's best-regarded zoos. Located close to the city centre, near the Botanic Gardens, it's easily accessible in a rental car from the airport or anywhere else in the area. It's open every day of the year and visitors can also book a special ticket that gives early morning access to the pandas' feeding time.

A Barossa Valley Wineries Tour is high on the must-do list of many visitors to Adelaide. Using a rental vehicle is a good way to reach the Barossa Valley, which is located about an hour's drive north of the city. Bear in mind, however, that South Australia's strict drink-driving laws means that one member of the party must act as the designated driver. Even without sampling the wine, a trip to the Barossa Valley offers splendid scenery and the chance to enjoy well-cooked local produce for lunch.

Distance to the Barossa Valley

  • From Adelaide Airport: 47.5 miles, about 59 minutes
  • From Adelaide city centre: 44.3 miles, about 57 minutes
