Discover the benefits of a larger fleet

Whether you've got a trip to Mount Gambier on your travel cards for business or leisure, let our friendly Thrifty staff make it one to remember. You can find us in the Terminal Building of the Mount Gambier Airport.

Our large vehicle line up includes some great passenger cars for holiday cruising, such as the Hyundai i30, Subaru Liberty and Mitsubishi Outlander, all fitted with top notch features and technology.

Need a car for a lengthy stint? We also offer long term lease agreements, plus a great commercial range for the tradies out there like utes and trucks and everything in between.

Convenience – fly in and fly out

When you're on the go and don't have much time up your sleeve, our Thrifty Arrive and Drive will be just the answer. How it works is instead of waiting in the queue to pick up your hire car, you just check your name displayed on a large TV screen and head on over to your car bay. It's quick, it's simple, it's easy - just as travelling should be!

Relax with the Mount Gambier Airport amenities

While Mount Gambier Airport is small and quaint, there's a lot to like about the facilities on offer. Corporate travellers can take advantage of the de Bruin Room, which is a conference facility/executive lounge and can seat up to twelve people. With catering options available it's the perfect place for your next meeting.

And of course, Mount Gambier Airport couldn't call itself an airport without having coffee available, as jetlagged travellers can stop by the Aero Espresso cafe, for their much needed coffee hit.

Travel tips for visiting Mount Gambier

Picture a pristine blue lake that meets lush green vegetation - then you will be imaging the area of Mount Gambier located in South Australia. This nature-filled location draws travellers from around the world, as it's a popular place to get away from it all and unwind. It's also a great stop over for people driving between Adelaide and Melbourne.

The Blue Lake is in fact one of the craters from the extinct Mount Gambier volcano and a popular activity is to venture onto the walking track around the lake. Keep in mind it will take a few hours to complete, so make sure you wear sturdy footwear and bring some snacks and water with you, especially on hot days.

When cruising around the area of Mount Gambier in your hire car, also make sure you take the time to drive the Limestone Coast that hosts the world heritage Naracoorte Caves National Park.
