Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia, and stands on the shore of the Great Australian Bight. Visitors with a hire car in Adelaide can visit picturesque villages in the Adelaide Hills, like the historic German settlement of Hahndorf, and explore the world-class vineyards of the Clare and Barossa Valleys. Popular day-trips include the white beaches and rugged coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula or Holdfast Bay, with its dolphin-swimming beach and trendy beachfront cafes. Further afield, go hiking in the Flinders Ranges or take a ferry to meet the wildlife of Kangaroo Island where there are colonies of sea lions and penguins.
With a grid pattern of streets covering a flat coastal plain, it's easy to find your way around when you rent a car in Adelaide. You can soon find the city centre's original arrangement of wide tree-lined colonial boulevards, five central public squares and ring of parks that make up this relaxed city. The grand stone museums, galleries and monuments of North Terrace demonstrate Adelaide's history, while the street markets and acclaimed multi-cultural restaurants of Rundle Street help make it one of Australia's best places to live. Look out too for the beaches, of course, and Rundle Mall for shopping.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
