Top tips for hiring a car in Kangaroo Island

  • While standard vehicles are allowed on the roads on Kangaroo Island, many people prefer to navigate the island with a four-wheel drive, especially when visiting for the first time. This is because the majority of the roads on the island are unsealed and can be slippery, even when dry. The road surface changes frequently throughout the island, so depending on your itinerary, it’s definitely something worth considering when choosing your hire vehicle for your trip.
  • On Kangaroo Island they drive on the left-hand side of the road, like the rest of Australia. If you’re travelling at a lower speed than the vehicles behind you, it’s courtesy to pull over on the left side of the road when it’s safe to do so and allow these vehicles to overtake you. Driving after dark is not an offence, but is not recommended on Kangaroo Island as it’s difficult to spot wildlife. Some car hire companies do not permit you to drive your vehicle at night as large animals like kangaroos can cause serious incidents. It’s best to check with your chosen company beforehand, some companies do make exceptions when you request in advance.
  • There are several petrol stations on Kangaroo Island, one in Penneshaw, two in Kingscote, two in Parndana and one in Vivonne Bay. It’s always best to check with your chosen car hire company what type of petrol your car requires and how you should leave the vehicle. Some companies require you to fill up the car with petrol before returning the vehicle or some ask you to leave the same amount of petrol that was originally given to you. Checking this information can save you unnecessary charges upon returning your vehicle. Make sure you’re always aware of how much petrol you have as the stations are quite far apart and some close early.
