Great airport. Calm and well let devour forecourt. Simple access to Hertz desk (though Firefly signage would have helped). Easy egress once sorted and a fabulous city and state to holiday in!

Upon arrival dont turn down the first right turning when you see the rental returns sign (like I did), its actually another slip road directly after. I was glad i took photos of the minor damage on the vehicle on pickup as although it didnt affect my vehicle, it set my mind at ease knowing i had proof i didnt cause it. There are petrol stations on both Marion rd and in West Beach to fill up prior to return to save any fees. Also i gave my car a wash and a tidy so returned it in a great state to avoid any extra cleaning fees. I could have saved a bit of time on drop off if i had seen the staff in the car park earlier with ipads as i waited a few minutes in the office until someone from outside saw me and took me back to my car. To save more money when you pick your rental up, go through the cars settings and switch it to 'Economy', i had mine preset on full power and as a result used more fuel. Nice car though, clean and affordable.

Be early to airport. Be carm when using report in technology. Keep passport out of holders as it won't all fit into ereport-in. Walk around inside the airport as there is lots of sitting on the plane.

ADL airport travel tips: 1) Finding the Europcar pickup - exit the terminal, and go on a diagonal to the left corner of the car park building, cross at the pedestrian lights, then turn right, to aim for the diagonally opposite corner of the car park building. 2) Returning the car - Rental returns are not well signed, but take the right lane out of the roundabout, do NOT use the slip lane to the car park, instead take the small next right avenue into Rental Returns. 3) Driving in Adelaide - Peak traffic only lasts about 20 minutes, so don't panic if you get stuck in it! 4) Fixed and mobile speed cameras are not made obvious. 5) Street parking is freely available within easy walking distance of almost everywhere except the CBD. 6) Highlights - Take a morning walk from Glenelg Jetty to Brighton Jetty, Look over the city from the Mt Lofty Lookout or dine at the Restaurant there (also the Windy Point Lookout/restaurant), Take a sunset stroll on the Hallet Cove boardwalk.

Adelaide is a great city and easy to drive in. Fellow drivers are more patience than say Sydney for instance. Just remember to fill up with petrol before returning the car.
