JUCY Cars in Adelaide Airport

Renting a car for your Adelaide, South Australia, or cross-country adventures offers the ultimate freedom. Why let someone else decide if you are going to pull over at a cool roadside attraction, take a detour off-the-beaten-track, or follow a lead on a native animal sighting? When you have a car, every choice is your own.  

Choose your JUCY rental car by size, cost, space, or style. Consider the Italian sass of our Small Hatch or the legroom of our Sedan. Our 8 Seater is road-trip-sing-a-long heaven for group outings or family vacays.  

With JUCY, you don’t just get a rental car. Nope, we offer our Adelaide Airport customers a free shuttle bus, along with unlimited mileage on your wheels, complimentary travel advice, and the peace of mind of 24/7 roadside assistance.

If you’re landing at Adelaide Airport during our branch hours, we’re ready, willing, and able to pick you up in our dedicated airport shuttle.  

Here’s the intel on grabbing a ride with us: 

  • Once you’ve cleared customs and have all your belongings, give us a quick call on our freephone number: 1800 150 850. Select option 1, for an Adelaide Airport pick up. Head outside and cross the plaza, past the Subway. Walk beyond the taxi rank and to the left of the pedestrian crossing. Here, you’ll see a red mailbox. Please wait in this area until our green and purple shuttle bus arrives. The last airport shuttle collection time is 4.30pm weekdays, and 3.30pm on Saturdays for car pick-ups.  
  • If you’re travelling to us from the city centre, you’ll need to make your own arrangements. We can recommend bus #168 from downtown Adelaide if you’re looking for the cheapest way to reach us. It takes around 20 minutes. If you’d prefer the fastest route to reach your rental car, an Uber is about $20. It should only take 15 minutes, but leave a buffer for traffic.

During our branch open hours, we’ll get you sorted and on the road in no time. Here’s how: 

  • Check out our shuttle tab to the left on how to lock in your space on our free shuttle service from Adelaide Airport.  
  • On arrival, our friendly JUCY crew will take you through your paperwork, a check of the car, and any additional information that’s useful for your journey.  
  • Please note, the latest we can accommodate your car rental check-in is 30 minutes before our closing time.  

If you are planning on collecting your JUCY wheels out of our branch opening hours, here’s what you need to know: 

  • Make your way to our branch at 25-27 Kinkaid Avenue, North Plympton.  
  • On arrival, look for the lockboxes with your name on it. It’s on the right-hand side of the building at the front 
  • Enter the last four digits of your JUCY booking reference. For example if your your confirmation number is 234567, you’ll move the lock key numbers to 4567Your keys will be inside the lockbox so you can get underway in record time! Your paperwork will be in the car 
  • An additional $30 applies to all after-hour pick-ups.

Bummer! Your JUCY adventure is over, and you need to return your car. Don’t worry; we’ll welcome you back anytime!  

Here’s how you drop off your hire car: 

  • Drive to our green and purple building at 25-27 Kinkaid Avenue, North Plympton. It’s pretty hard to miss us! 
  • Check before you drive in that your fuel is back to full. If you’ve forgotten, it’s a short detour to the nearest petrol station at X Convenience Netley, 294 Marion Road, Netley.  
  • A super important step is next – have you cleared the car of all your belongings? Like, all of them? We’ve been known to find Kindles, passports, lone socks, and even a laptop when we clean the car for its next adventure. Don’t leave your cool stuff behind! Can we also request that you take any rubbish out at the same time? 
  • Next, find one of our friendly JUCY crewmembers and hand in your key.  
  • If you’re heading to the airport (and it’s before 4.30pm on weekdays or 3.30pm on Saturdays), we can offer you a free ride. It’s super easy, too, simply jump on the next one. We recommend leaving an extra 45 minutes before you need to be at the airport.  

Dropping off after hours?  

  • Follow the steps above, including fueling up, and removing all non-JUCY items.  
  • Please, double-check all the windows are closed and lock the car. Pop your keys in the Key Return Box on the right-hand side of our branch.  
  • Make your own way to the airport or back to the city. It’s around $15 in an Uber to the terminal, or bus J8 will get you there (though you’ll need to walk five minutes, too). For downtown Adelaide, expect $20 in an Uber or take bus 167 or 168 for a cheap ride.

Take the ultimate roadie around Adelaide, South Australia, and more!

For years, Adelaide was an understated destination, skipped or bypassed for it’s better-known neighbours. But, word has caught on about the region’s natural wonders, quirky attractions, and abundant wildlife. There’s no better time to take a roadie here!  

Locals call Adelaide the 20-minute city as almost everything is reached quickly from downtown. With the tram and bus, public transport is decent for inner-city visits but, a rental car is required to see the majority of the region’s key attractions.  

As Australia’s third-largest island, an adventure by car to Kangaroo Island affords the freedom to see it all. Or explore the Adelaide Hills’ quaint boutiques, coffee shops, and art galleries at your leisure.  

South Australia’s wildlife is legendary, with opportunities to see native animals across the state. Whether it’s whales and sea lions on the coast, or kangaroos and koalas in the outback, it’s not uncommon to spy Aussie animals daily on a road trip here. Pretty epic reason to hit the road, if you ask us! 

The diverse scenery is also a win in our books. From the dramatic red gorges of the Flinders Ranges to the inland pink salt lakes. The coastline of South Australia is so pristine and long that there’s little reason to share your little pocket of sand or even be near another beachgoer 

Visiting Adelaide and South Australia is pleasant year-round. While the peak of summer (when our rental cars book up far in advance), can throw up a few days worthy of a news headline, the coastal communities remain pleasant. The mild temperatures in winter make South Australia a desirable state to explore, particularly if you’re interested in an outback roadie.  

If you’re ready to book your South Australian adventure, give us a call on 1800 150 850 or book online now.
