Where are the best convention centers near Adelaide?

What kind of rental car should I get for Adelaide?
Adelaide knows how to entertain. You could vacation for a week or more here and not run out of things to do. If you’d like to take in as much as you can in this dynamic metropolis, a rental car is a must. Keep in mind that driving around big cities often goes hand in hand with tight streets and even tighter parking spots. But don’t stress — a compact or an economy car will make this a lot less daunting. If you’re eager to skip town and explore some of the cliffs that Adelaide is known for, you may prefer a vehicle with more room to move. A full-size or mid-size SUV will make that longer drive comfortable.

Specialty vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to comfort and class. If you want to treat yourself, why not grab a high-end SUV, or perhaps a flashy mid-sized vehicle? Alternatively, if you just need a car to get you from A to B as economically as possible, you’re better off going with a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that’s unlikely to break the bank).
