Location information for Brisbane

None of Australia's cities can rival the rapid growth of Queensland's state capital Brisbane, currently the country's third most populated city. Brisbane's year round warm weather, friendly atmosphere and convenient location between Australia's popular Gold and Sunshine Coast beach holiday spots are just a few reasons why the city has attracted so many visitors and new residents.



Brisbane Airport stands 20kms northeast of the city's central business district on the Brisbane River's north bank. The airport is among Brisbane's best places to compare car hire online, the most convenient way to travel through the city. Brisbane's confusing central business district, on the other hand, is best explored by bicycle, foot or public transportation. The TransLink integrated ticketing system serves Brisbane's bus, ferry and train network.

Car Hire Brisbane

It takes roughly 30 minutes to drive between Brisbane's central business district and Brisbane Airport, which offers the widest selection of car rental in Brisbane. Although many rental firms will not rent vehicles to drivers under 25, some companies rent to motorists as young as 18 with extra surcharges. Thrifty, Avis, Advantage, National, Budget and Hertz are all well represented in Brisbane.


One of Brisbane's best known landmarks is the magnificent Story Bridge linking the city's north and south ends. However, Brisbane's central business district is a trick to navigate due to its numerous one-way streets and confusing layout for drivers unfamiliar with the city. Motorists who arrive early in the morning and leave in early evening will not only avoid most rush hour traffic but can also get parking discounts.

Things To See and Do

Car hire in Brisbane is most useful for visitors wanting to take road trips outside of the city. It takes between 90 minutes and two hours to reach New South Wales' North Coast depending on traffic conditions. The islands of Coochiemudlo and North Stradbroke lie much closer to Brisbane as quieter alternatives to the crowded Sunshine and Gold Coasts.

Best Time To Visit

Brisbane's typical weather conditions are hot and sunny with an average annual temperature of 25°C. December through February is the city's hottest and most humid period of all. But even winter temperatures are usually warm enough to comfortably walk around without heavy sweaters or jackets. Many believe autumn, between March and May, is Brisbane's most beautiful season with its warm weather and lack of rain and humidity. Spring is also pleasant, but brings a greater chance of rainfall.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
