What to know before renting a campervan in Adelaide

How much is campervan hire in Adelaide?

According to Motorhome Republic, renting a 2-berth camper in summer costs an average of $190 per night, whereas winter prices sit around $199.

A number of factors go into the cost of your rental, including:

  • The length of your hire
  • The age of the vehicle
  • Time of year
  • Number of travellers
  • Inclusions and extras

When is the best time to hire a campervan in Adelaide?

The best time to visit Adelaide is from February to March, as this is when temperatures are at their most comfortable. Travellers also get to see the numerous festivals and events hosted in and around the city.

To score low prices in Adelaide, either travel in early-February or late-March. The shoulder periods are when you'll find the cheapest accommodation and flights.

What licence do I need to drive a motorhome in Adelaide?

A full driver's licence is required to get behind the wheel of a motorhome in Adelaide. If you're coming from abroad, you can use a foreign licence, so long as it is in English. If it isn't, you may need to get an international driving licence with an English translation.

Are there any age restrictions to driving a campervan in Adelaide?

To drive a campervan in Adelaide, you'll need to be at least 18 years old, with a full driver's licence.

Unfortunately, many companies have age restrictions on who can hire a motorhome. This includes only renting to people aged 21 to 75 years old.

Can you park a campervan anywhere in Adelaide?

No, free camping anywhere in Adelaide puts you at risk of getting fined. Although there aren't any free parking areas in the CBD, there are plenty of low-cost camps close by.

How long do I need to travel around Adelaide by campervan?

Adelaide's attractions span far and wide, it's for this reason that we recommend giving yourself 4-7 days to experience what it has on offer. To tick everything off the list, a 2-week period will get you there. Some of our favourite itineraries include:

  • 3-days: Adelaide to Coober Pedy
  • 4-days: Adelaide to Port Lincoln
  • 4-days: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
  • 4-days: Epicurean Way
  • 5-days: Coastal Way

Do I need special campervan insurance?

When you hire your campervan, the rental company will provide several options for insurance cover. These range from basic to comprehensive cover.

Choose to purchase through them or take out your own policy which could work more in your favour.

Campervan hire locations in Adelaide

The majority of campervan depots are found in North Plympton, Mile South End, Brooklyn Park, Croydon Park and Happy Valley.

Which companies offer campervan pick-up from airports in Adelaide?

Tips for driving a campervan in Adelaide

  • Plan your route in advance: Campervans are longer and taller than your average car, so you'll need to take this into consideration when on the road. Look out for height indicator signs, low-hanging branches and take your time when reversing.
  • Exercise caution when driving: If you're driving along The Great Ocean Road from Adelaide, remember to be extra vigilant. This stretch of road is one of the most touristic in Australia and you need to be extra cautious when driving this route.
  • Take a break every 2 hours: Plan for regular rest stops along the way. Distances are huge in Australia and driving times on your GPS can be misleading, especially when you're in the outback.
  • Book the correct vehicle: If you're planning to drive along dirt tracks, make sure you're equipped with the right vehicle (ideally a 4WD), and the right insurance.
  • Don't park just anywhere: You're not allowed to park up on the side of the road in South Australia, but you will find plenty of free camps at the roadside with basic facilities. The WikiCamps app is a great way to find these.
