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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
