If you're arriving at the Brisbane Airport then it doesn't matter if you're here on a business trip, visiting family or just exploring somewhere new, you'll need a way to get where you're going and a great car hire deal is definitely the smart choice.
You may think that paying for a taxi would be your best option but think again. According to the Yellow Cabs Fare Calculator, you can expect to pay $42.30 to get from the Brisbane Airport to the city! When you compare this to our car hire costs starting at $27* a day, you can get almost 2 days of car hire for the cost of a one-way taxi fare!
We even offer a free pickup service from the Brisbane Airport to our Hendra location less than 6km away so you don't even have to worry about dealing with the hectic airport traffic. At a much lower price, the flexibility to drive wherever you like and Alpha's helpful, friendly staff, a rental car is the obvious winner.
