Car Hire Brisbane Airport

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.

Ibis Budget

Ibis Budget Hotel Brisbane Airport

If you’re looking for a place to stay, why not check out the Brisbane Airport Ibis?

The Ibis hotel is open 24 hours a day, so you can come and go at your own convenience. With flights leaving 24 hours a day it can make life a little inconvenient and will often mean you can spend hours waiting in an airport because your flight is leaving in the early hours of the morning. However our hotel eradicates this problem, being placed just a few minutes away from the airport you can get a few hours of much needed sleep instead of waiting around in an empty airport.

The rooms will not disappoint either, all are fitted with flat screen televisions, an ensuite bathroom and free Wi-Fi. An all you can eat breakfast is also included at no extra charge, this allows you to fuel up before getting on the plane and stops you paying over the odds for food at the airport! If that wasn’t enough a shuttle service is also available and takes you directly to the airport. The best part about it is the price, prices start from as little as $99 a night! Do yourself a favour and check out the Ibis Budget hotel today.
