Car rental location Kangaroo Island Airport

Location information for Kangaroo Island Airport

The main air gateway to South Australia's Kangaroo Island lies eight miles from Kingscote, the island's biggest town, with car rental in Kingscote Airport. The airport's several direct Regional Express Airlines flights to Adelaide last roughly 35 minutes and were boarded by slightly over 54,000 people between 2009 and 2010.

Kingscote Airport facilities

The airport terminal opens each early morning and closes after each day's final scheduled flight. Car hire in Kingscote Airport through Hertz or Avis is highly recommended on this island which has no taxi or other public transportation service other than ferries from the town of Penneshaw. Coffee and cool drink machines, public toilets, a water fountain and tourism brochures are some of this airport's other attractions.

Kingscote Airport excursions

Kingscote is not only Kangaroo Island's most populated community, it is the first settlement which Europeans established on the island. The vast majority of the island's over 140,000 annual visitors arrives by air or ferry from Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island's second-biggest settlement. Kangaroo Island is home to a colony of some of the world's smallest penguins, the world's oldest bee sanctuary and Flinders Chase National Park. The south coast's massive sand dunes are known as Little Sahara.

Best time to visit

Kangaroo Island enjoys a Mediterranean climate with winters which are wet and mild between June and September, while summers are dry and pleasantly warm. Most Kangaroo Island rain falls between May and September, and the cool ocean waters prevent summers from becoming unbearably hot. Kingscote is one of Kangaroo Island's least rainy areas.

Car rental in Kingscote Airport

Getting a vehicle on Kangaroo Island is preferable to obtaining one on the mainland, as some mainland car hire companies do not allow vehicles to be driven on the island. Visitors who compare car hire must book in advance to ensure they have transportation around this island, whose three largest settlements are within an hour's drive of each other. Fuel stations are fairly scarce, especially on the island's more isolated west side, and prices are costlier than those on the mainland.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
