Explore Brisbane with Car Hire

Brisbane has car hire depots at the airport (international & dometic terminals), in the city centre, and in some outer suburbs. For a holiday maker flying into Brisbane a rental at the Airport is usually the best option. A car rental from the airport does attract a surcharge, but the alternative is to catch the train or taxi to town, both of which are probably close in price to the surcharge (although you can check this out on each individual rental), There is a great deal more convenience in getting a car from the airport if you fly in.
