Cheap Brisbane Car Rental at the Airport

When cab fares cost about as much as a fancy meal, booking a budget car rental Brisbane service is the smartest way to get around Brisbane. With a car hire, you can go anywhere in the city any time you need to, at affordable prices.

Picture this: Your plane just landed. You're at the Brisbane airport. You're exhausted, and you really just want to get to your hotel to get some rest. You don't want to end up looking and feeling like a zombie during the first day of your business trip/family visit/vacation. So, what do you do? Hail a cab and pray you don't get scammed? No. We have a better solution.

From the Brisbane Airport to your hotel and anywhere else in Brisbane, Alpha Car Hire takes care of your transportation needs during your stay in Queensland's capital. For as low as $22 per day, our Brisbane car hire service at Alpha is definitely the way to go. That is, unless you'd rather spend a little over $42 for one taxi ride from the airport to the city. How much more do you think you're going to spend if you keep hailing cabs throughout your entire stay?

More than helping you save money on transportation costs, we want to make sure that your experience with us is easy. We offer a free pick-up service from the Brisbane Airport to our Hendra location, where our helpful and friendly Alpha staff will help you pick up the car. No need for you to deal with the hectic airport traffic.

Ibis Budget is an affordable hotel with rooms that don't feel "budget" at all. For as little as $99, you get to enjoy rooms fixed with a flat screen television, a modern en-suite, and free Wi-Fi access. It's open 24 hours a day and is only 5 minutes away from the Brisbane airport. They have a shuttle service available to take you directly there. So if your flight leaves at an ungodly hour, you no longer need to wait around an empty airport for your flight at 2 in the morning.
