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 $27 per day, our car hire Brisbane 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.

I have previously used Alpha nd on each ocassion have been impressed with the fantastic service provided by all staff. The cars have been averything that was expected and did the job very well with no breakdowns etc.Darryl , December 2012
I would like to thank the staff for their help and compassion at a very bad time for us, there handling of the situation was excellent and got us through a very trying extra week and a half, without their help I would have not been able to visit my husband in hospital and get us to the airport to fly back home to new zealand. Thank you to all staff involved. Bob and christine ruddick.Christine , December 2012
Oh my goodness I have just returned and you have beat me to it as I was going to send an email to say many of the above. After our car being in an accident at home we chose Alpha from Brisbane to hire a car ( which we live 2 hours away from near byron bay ) and we had such great service and rates, then going to melbourne the following week I went straight to Alpha and the service and vehicle was impeccable. From the original greeting when we walked into the Alpha building, the girl was so delightful, easy and it was such an easy process, when we returned the car I was then on a deadline to get to the plane and the boys in the yard quickly drove us all to the airport and left the other guests that were dily dallying around to get the next shuttle so we didn't have to wait. I was so appreciative of this, the service, the rates, the vehicle ( nissan xtrail ) was exceptional - thank youJane , December 2012
