When cab fares cost about as much as a fancy meal, you better believe that renting a cheap car in Brisbane Airport is the smartest way to get around Brisbane. With a rental car, 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 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 the fare is not expensive? No. We have a better solution.
Alpha Car Hire takes care of your transportation needs during your stay in Queensland's capital. For as low as $22 per day, hiring a car from us 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, we want to make sure that your experience with us is easy. We offer a FREE shuttle 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.
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. Cramming your bags into the car, negotiating with cabbies, and the busy traffic can be too much to handle.
We want to make sure that you get the most out of our service. Our 100% free shuttle service from the terminal to our Hendra branch takes away the stress and hassle you typically deal with when leaving the airport. Give us a call at 07 3268 2758 and we will meet you right in front of the terminal, load your bags in, and deal with the chaotic traffic for you. 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.
The city is only a 20 minute car ride from the Brisbane Airport.

When you're on a budget, it can sometimes be difficult to find good hotels close to the airport (that's within your price range). In Brisbane, you won't have that problem.
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.
For more info, check out the Ibis website.

Go fishing or, if you're lucky enough to see one, feed a wild dolphin on Moreton Island. Let your kids burn off that energy in the Bayside Park Manly. Take lots of photos as they race to the climbing nets, boat-inspired double slides, swings, and rocker rides.
