  • Adelaides worst!

    by

    The rockford was the worst hotel i have EVER stayed at. I admit that they make up for the lack of room space such as the balcony and no locks or doors in the toilets, with new age technology with tvs, apple tv and even your own IPAD. that right people, an IPAD for each room. That still dosent give them the right to kick people out after they have been advised by hotel management to bring other people back to room.
    Two of my friends and i hired a room out with the acknolegdement of bringing other people up. Hotel management told us that it was ok, come up to 1am and said that only 3 people up at the time.
    Most of us were let down due to the advisement of the hotel management and most had left. We all had rang and asked them
    Of this arangement and asked them if it was OK. We were told that it would be fine as long as we kept the noise to a near whisper. We followed thier rules but clearly they did not follow our arangement.
    As a final word, yes great hotel in new aged technology but if you want a hotel to keep thier true word, go some where else!!!

Hiring a car- under 21

by Byoung1990

Hi guys,

My girlfriend is living in Adelaide for the year- and I'll be coming out to visit in December. We're looking to hire a car/van whilst we're there so we can head out to York Peninsula...Only problem is that she's under 21!! She's been driving for over 3 years though and has a full English driver's license...

The only possibility we've found so far is a couple of camper van sites that don't look too reputable...So I'm opening up the floor for some suggestions!

Cheers,

Ben x

Re: Hiring a car- under 21

by leics

It's normal to have upper and lower age limits for car hire. UK firms do: 23/25 is the norm here, so your girlfriend would have problems hiring a car even when she's at home.

Can you drive? Are you over 21? If so, that might be the answer.

Re: Hiring a car- under 21

by Byoung1990

No, I'm not over 21...And I can't drive :(

I've seen that we're able to hire certain camper vans...Any recommendations??

Re: Hiring a car- under 21

by tropicrd

Hi,in Australia a lot of car hire places will rent a car to what is termed "under age" from 21 to 24 years of age and then you must pay a higher levy.

I don't know any place where you can hire a car under 21 years,even if you have been driving in your own country for years.

Sorry to give you this news.

Perhaps you might be able to link up with other travellers or consider a tour.

Re: Hiring a car- under 21

I just had a quick surf and found some try www.ezhirecar.com.au for cars - put in 20 year old and it came back with options. I don't like your chances of getting a camper van but you might get a Hyundai imax if you try.
If you can't rent a van then maybe see if you can negotiate a a buy and sell back deal with a car yard on a reasonable quality car.

Re: Hiring a car- under 21

by tropicrd

Perhaps different states of Australia have different ages regarding hire of cars/vans !!! Perhaps as your girlfriend is already living in Adelaide she could check out some of the hire car places herself,also she may need to have an international licence,worth checking out.

Cheers and hope you have some luck.

Re: Hiring a car- under 21

by johnfromoz

I have contacted two companies;
www.CamperTravel.com.au
http://www.backpackercampervans.com.au/
both will hire to under 21's two or three berth vehicles only as long as you have a full drivers licence.

Full driver's licence may be a problem if you are under 21 but with England not impossible.

Travel Tips for Adelaide

North Adelaide

by dlandt

North Adelaide is where the upper crust gather in Adelaide. There's a lot of very nice shops there, and different restaurants, many or which are Italian. Get your hair cut, shop for clothes, stop for a glass of wine. Its expensive, but everything seems to be very nice. Miyuki and I dropped by here for a few hours on the way back from the Barrossa. Its quite a pleasant little place. You can come here and drink tea from porceclain cups with your little finger in the air.

Packing List

by Ilena

Anything from a backpack up should do you fine, depending on how much you want to pack. You probably only need an umbrella. If you get electric shocks a lot, try to avoid synthetic clothing because Adelaide is very dry. Sunscreen - 30+!! Otherwise, pretty much everything is there. You have to ask for paracetamol over the counter though. Lots of sunscreen. If you are hiking or camping in the bush, take long pants, a long sleeved shirt and sensible shoes, even if it is hot. If camping in desert areas, take warm clothes for the night - even in summer it gets very cold.

many people seem to head off...

by jrs1234

many people seem to head off to Kangaroo Island once they get to Adelaide. I didn't make it there, but it's a major centre for wildlife in the state, and it's a good place for spotting kangaroos, seals and many other species.

The Exeter Hotel

by FluffyDice about The Exeter Hotel

It's a pub that's free to get into to see live entertainment. Great bands play in the beer garden and the staff is friendly. The people who go there are usually university students but other alternative types go there as well. Many females also populate this pub. :) Wear whatever you feel comfortable in except leave the thongs and tank tops at home.
