What will you need to know when driving a rental car in Brisbane?

Our VroomVroomVroom family is proud to call our hometown Brisbane. With our main office located on the North side of the city, we are sure to be able to help you out with any car rental queries that you may have. 

Here are some facts that we think are important when hiring a car in Brisbane:

There are Toll Roads! Make sure you know how you will be paying your tolls when you collect your hire car. Every supplier has different expectations, and most will charge a lot more if you do not meet these expectations, and travel through toll roads anyway. Of course, you can avoid the toll roads at all costs. However, this means driving around the countryside.

2. Parking - Be aware that there are parking restrictions throughout the city and surrounding suburbs during particular times. Also please note that if you have a hire car and a parking ticket is issued whilst you have it, there are admin fees charged if the ticket isn't paid and the car rental supplier has to process it.
