Hi, we come to the Gold Coast often and we normally hire our rental from the airport with the major companies. This was my first time we hired from you and found it to be excellent, your staff was very helpful and friendly. Looking forward to doing business with you in the near future in Coolangatta or Brisbane. Regards paul formica

When cab fares cost about as much as a fancy meal, you had better believe that booking a cheap car hire in Brisbane Airport is the smartest way to get around the city. With a rental car, you can go anywhere, any time - at affordable prices.

Alpha Car Hire takes care of your transportation needs during your stay in Queensland's capital. For as low as $22 per day, our cheap car rental in Brisbane is definitely the way to go. That is, unless you'd rather spend money riding cabs. How much more do you think you're going to spend if you keep hailing cabs throughout your entire stay?

Aside from helping you save money on transportation costs, we want to make sure that your experience with us is easy. We offer a free shuttle service from the airport to our Hendra depot where the keys to your rental car awaits.

Free Airport Transfers at Brisbane Airport
Brisbane Airport

Whether you've just arrived from a short domestic flight or a long overseas one, the last thing you want to do is spend even more time at the airport. Trying to hail a cab, cramming your bags into the car, and being stuck in busy airport traffic can be too much to handle.

At Alpha, we want to make sure that you get the most out of our service. Once you land, a friendly team from Alpha will meet you right in front of the terminal, load your bags in our shuttle, and transport you to our depot. This way, you can sit back, relax, and think about where to go on Day 1 of your Brisbane adventure. If you don't know where to start, feel free to ask one of our drivers for suggestions because they're sure to have some great ideas.

Hotels and Accommodation

Considering how many exciting things there are to see and do around Brisbane, you'll surely want to stay for more than a day. Go shop, eat, explore, and then have a comfortable place to rest by the end of your adventure. Brisbane has many accommodation options for you to choose from that will cater to everyone from the fanciest to the most frugal traveler. Find everything from 5, 4, and 3 star hotels to apartments, hostels, B&Bs, resorts, camping accommodations, and more with our Brisbane Accommodation Guide.

Toll Roads in Queensland

South East Queensland has a number of toll roads to  help you avoid the typical city traffic. As everything comes at a cost, the tolls range from $1.56 - $4.25 per toll point with some routes crossing multiple points (increasing every 6 months).

Toll roads include:

Gateway Motorway
Logan Motorway
Clem Jones Tunnel (aka CLEM 7 Tunnel)
Go-Between Bridge
Airport Link (aka M7)

Parking in Brisbane

When you get to Brisbane, you'll find out (hopefully not the hard way) that it has a lot of parking rules and regulations to keep traffic moving. Remember that in a city as busy as Brisbane, even the suburbs have high volumes of traffic. That does not, however, mean that you can park just anywhere. You need parking permits in residential areas and there are laws that you need to follow in public facilities and other parking zones. Not sure about the parking signs and rules around? Check out this guide to Parking Signs in Australia.

On one hand, you can use metered parking spaces in public areas. On the other hand, you can go to a secure car park. Here's a list of the car parks in Brisbane:
