Arrive and Drive

Don't like lining up at counters? Guess what? At Thrifty we offer the ultimate benefit for our Blue Chip members - no counter check in. Thrifty Arrive and Drive means when you land down in Adelaide you can bypass the counter, check for your name clearly displayed on the TV screen and stroll directly to the rental car. Waiting for you in the front seat you'll find the condition report and all you have to do is sign it and hand it to the concierge. Flying in and out has never been more simple or easy!

Child seats, GPS units and more

Need something else to make your car hire even easier? Well, you can when you rent with Thrifty! You can choose to add handy extras like a child or baby seat, GPS navigation units and even prepaid fuel. There's no need to travel with your own bulky equipment or waste time looking for a petrol station before you return your car.

Things to see and do with a rental car in Adelaide

Adelaide is also the perfect starting point for adventures all over the state and beyond. One of the area’s most famous attractions is the stunning Barossa Valley. A leisurely 90-minute drive from town, this region is home to dozens of wineries, many of which are amongst the best in Australia. You can try out a wine trail, or simply decide on one or two and spend the whole day nibbling and tasting wines. Of course, always appoint a designated driver (and shout them a bottle or two to take home for later as thanks). 

Adelaide is South Australia’s capital city, and there’s plenty to see and do when you’re in town. Get a dose of culture at the Art Gallery of South Australia, where you can see exhibitions featuring all the big names in Aussie art, or find out about the region’s natural history at the South Australian Museum. Bargain hunters can indulge in some retail therapy at the Central Market, while nature-lovers can relax in the ultra-lush Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
