One of the most famous tourist attractions for visitors coming to Adelaide is the Barossa Valley wine region, and with good reason. One of the oldest wine regions in Australia, the Barossa Valley is a bit over an hour north east of Adelaide, making it the perfect weekend getaway. However, one problem that faces groups of people wanting to experience all that this enchanting region has to offer is the problem of transport. Obviously, if you are going from vineyard to cellar to vineyard sampling the famous Barossa Valley wines, you probably are not going to be in a fit state to drive by the end of the day. Traditionally, people have for this reason booked group tours to the Barossa Valley, but many people want to explore at their own pace instead of shuttling from place to place in an overcrowded tour bus. This is where the advent of cheap Uber car rental Brisbane has made a weekend in the Barossa Valley so much easier for many people.
As long as you can find one person who is willing to ease up a bit on the wine tasting and act as designated driver, mini bus hire can allow your group to easily tour the Barossa Valley with maximum convenience and flexibility. Many smaller mini buses seating up to a dozen passengers do not require anything other a standard C class car driver’s licence to legally drive, although there may be varying conditions regarding legal levels of maximum alcohol consumption. A mini bus allows a group of friends to easily tour the over one hundred and fifty wineries and eighty cellar doors of the Barossa Valley with ease. It can also work out much cheaper than you think, especially if you’re hiring at an off peak time of year. It’s worth checking the rates with one of the many rent a car agencies that are currently operating in Adelaide.
One slightly less practical, but extremely fun option that is possible from many of the Adelaide Airport car rental firms is to pay a slight premium in order to rent a luxury car or a convertible. Imagine zipping around the country side with the roof down, fully experiencing the sensual views that the Barossa Valley has to offer in a convertible sports car. This might be more suited to inter state or overseas visitors who are arriving at Adelaide Airport and wish to spend some time driving around and exploring the Barossa Valley region and staying in accommodation the region. The advantages of hiring a mini bus, as discussed earlier, are more likely to be apparent for groups of friends living in Adelaide who just want to spend a day or a weekend, because self driving obviously requires that you pace your self a fair bit more than if you have one designated driver. Nevertheless, renting a premium hire car can be a great experience, especially for couples.
