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.

Fuel stations are fairly scarce, especially on the island's more isolated west side, and prices are costlier than those on the mainland.
