Airport Details

Think about it. Brisbane CBD is 13 kilometres away from the airport (both domestic and international terminals) and is easily navigable even for the first time visitor. By booking your car hire in Brisbane Airport with VroomVroomVroom, you're going to get the best deal that gets you from A to B, and which can work out cheaper than other options that only get you and yours to the CBD one-way.

By booking a car rental in Brisbane Airport through VroomVroomVroom you can increase your chances of finding that brilliant deal because it collates all the specials offered by all of Australia's most popular car rental companies in one place and displays it in an awesome list so you compare quickly.

Where to find a cheap car hire in Brisbane Airport

VroomVroomVroom not only gathers all the deals from Budget, Avis, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty to save you time surfing the net for Brisbane Airport car rental, but it often has specials not offered anywhere else on the internet. We also guarantee the best web-based pricing from these companies. This means you don't have to search through 5 or 6 websites to get the best deal from these suppliers. We do all of that for you. Check out our price promise to see how this works. 

So options like a taxi might be attractive if you aren't a big fan of public transportation, but just check out the costs. Just by visiting the airport you can see that a one-way fare to the CBD is around $25.                

If you plan ahead, and keep an eagle-eye peeled for great deals, you can sort out a rental car special for around the same price, with the difference being you have your own private transportation for an entire 24 hours.

Coaches also run between the CBD and the airport, but the prices range between $9-11, so if you're travelling with a buddy, a group, or your family then it makes sense to consider booking a car hire at the Brisbane Airport for the price, the convenience, and the freedom.

DFO is only a stones throw away from the airport. There are shuttle buses that will take you to the shopping outlet, however for the best option, we suggest you hire a car from the airport and visit DFO at the beginning of your Brisbane getaway or spend your last holiday dollars there when you go to return the rental car.
Go to BNE.com.au to check out the departure and arrival times, and their extensive range of maps to show the first-timer (or the nervous) how to navigate the streets of Brisbane, and how to get to the Sunshine Coast or the Gold Coast.

Brisbane Sun and Culture

Apart from a mild subtropical climate and a laid- back Queensland pace, Brisbane is filled to the brim with art, music and culture. Dozens of theatres, cinemas, concert halls, galleries and museums pepper the Brisbane landscape.


World- famous bands like Powderfinger, George, Keith Urban, Savage Garden, The Veronicas and Pete Murray all originated in Brissie. It's not hard to see a good live band in this colourful city; Australia's third largest. All you have to do is walk along the streets in the Valley at night. On Saturday nights music drifts out of the bars, lounges and nightclubs, creating a cacophony of different rhythms and beats as they mix together on the street. 

Ric's Café Bar on Brunswick Street is a Brisbane institution when it comes to live music. Go upstairs for great DJs in the lounge bar upstairs or squish up, bop about and prepare to be mesmerised by the wide selection of live bands that 
perform in the stage area downstairs.
One of the new kids on the entertainment scene is All One Word. This new bar is bringing art and music together and showing Brisbane some of its up and coming artistic stars. Across the wall s at AOW you will see graffiti art by Rusty. The Alice in Wonderland wall is magical drawing you into Wonderland and landing you in a mad hatter tea party. Inside the lounge is chic and lush. Keep an eye out for one of the many live art night presented by the AOW team.

Sunday picnic in the park

While the night- scene is pumping, Brisbane is just as amazing when the sun's out. Pack a picnic lunch and head to New Farm Park

This beautiful park with tropical greenery on the river's shore comes alive on Sunday afternoons. Everyone from families, to groups of friends with a soccer ball and guitar, to couples with champagne can be seen enjoying the beauty of this popular park. And as the sun descends, watch as the people stepping off the CityCat ferry in New Farm Park begin to appear more dressed up. The reason: they are most likely off to a night of modern live performance shows at the Brisbane Powerhouse, situated at the side of the park.

Performance and Theatre

When heading to the theatre in Brisbane, there's quite a choice… 
Brisbane Powerhouse and Brisbane Arts Theatre, features cutting- edge performances from Australian and International artists in a historic old powerhouse beside the river.  Whether it is comedy, experimental avant-garde theatre or hip hop dance you like, you'll find it at the Powerhouse. Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) is a world- class centre for musicals, plays, ballets, operas and concerts visiting Brisbane. Queensland Theatre Company (QTC) is the main theatre company in Queensland, bringing the best local and international plays to Queensland. Check out the best local and international plays at their performance venue, the Billie Brown Studio in South Bank.

Galleries and Museums

For visual art, your first stop should probably be the Queensland Art Gallery. Check out its permanent collection of around 10,000 works, including paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, installations, video and decorative arts. The Tintoretto, Rubens and Picasso artworks and the ever-expanding 20th century collection are unforgettable! 
Just next door you can learn about Queensland's social, technological and natural history at the Queensland Museum. The Museum of Brisbane (MoB) located in the City Hall frequently hosts touring multimedia art exhibitions as well as social history, craft and design displays.

For cute little private art galleries, head to Brunswick St in the Valley. Fortitude Valley is the heart of artistic expression in Brisbane. Fusions Gallery, on Brunswick in a heritage- listed former church, showcases local ceramic art and glass plus works by national and international ceramic artists. Philip Bacon Galleries, diagonally opposite Fusions, happens to be the favourite private gallery of the famous Melbourne- based performer, Barry 'Dame Edna Everage' Humphries. 

In the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, you'll find the Institute of Modern Art. There, you can admire a range of exhibitions as well as artist monographs, exhibition catalogues and critical theory texts. Near the Valley in Newstead is the amazing Fire-Works Gallery that deals with 'Aboriginal Art & Other Burning Issues' resulting in unique art that incorporates many cultural perspectives.

Fine dining and fun dining

South Bank has an array of great restaurants by the river, close to a mini rainforest and man- made pool beside the river. Restaurant life in the area has boomed recently and now there are tonnes of options, styles and cultural foods to choose from. Bellying dancing at Turkish 'Ah Mets' on a Friday and Saturday night is worth a giggle.
And, of course, the city's best work of art is the Brisbane River that winds through its centre. Get active and start the day cycling along the river's bank. The new Riverwalk, a long path that floats on the water, is a great way to get to know the heartbeat of this river city.

Matt Moran has been one of Australia's top chefs and restaurateurs for many years. Aria in Sydney has been a bench mark in the hospitality industry and now makes the shores of the Brisbane River its home. Located in the popular Eagle Street Pier Dining District, Aria is an added jewel in the dining crown of Brisbane.

Planning a holiday in Brisbane? Here are some River City tips.

Right up the top of most travelers lists when they're in Brisbane are the surrounding areas of the city; the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. You see, what makes Brisbane so unique is the capacity to live, shop and be a culture vulture in the city, but make a quick escape to the beach- side scene of your choice in a matter of minutes.

Shop like crazy in Brisbane city, the Queen Street Mall is a one stop shop area for any thing and everything, from discount warehouse specials on the latest fashion trends, to schmoozing it up in Louis Vuitton and Tiffany and Co. also make the 5 minute drive to The Valley for boutique mania and the fringe society version of fashions' latest.

Eat, drink and chai latte at scores of highly regarded restaurants, bars and cafes in the central districts of Brisbane city, South Bank, West End, Paddington, Bulimba, Rosalie, Milton, and Wilston.

Road trips, short or long are ideal in Brissy, because of the variety of landscapes in the surrounding areas you can cruise, trek or sail through. To the north there's the Deception Bay area which moves on to the Sunshine Coast and further on to Double Island Point (right) and Fraser Island. Serious fishers or 4 Wheel Drivers heard further north for Rainbow Beach, Airlie Beach and 1770 for hard core fishing and truly coastal camping.

In from the Sunshine Coast, there are the mountains, forests and outback pleasures. Check out the quaint mountain towns Montville and nearby Melany, while Saturday markets are a South East Coast favourite in the super laid back town of Eumundi.

Heading south of the city is the infamous Surfers Paradise and numerous Gold Coast attractions, mountains, surf and theme parks, not to mention some world class shopping and dining. Head west for Mount Tamborine or further south for the Tweed area or even into NSW for a CoffsHarbour/ Ballina/ ByronBay retreat.

If you're interested in local festivals, celebrations and events, check out VisitBrisbane.com for a list of happenings and events - from live shows and art exhibitions to trivia nights. With so many unique events to choose from, Brisbane car rental can provide the mobility essential to experience this river city.

While you're in the area you could take a picnic up to Mount Cootha and have a wander around the Botanic Gardens. As it's only 15 minutes from the CBD, the lookout at Mount Cootha gives you a brilliant view of the city and is the best place to watch the sun slowly sink over the horizon.

Must-see attractions include Australia Zoo out near Beerwah, which Steve Irwin made famous all over the world (RIP Steve...), to get up close and personal to some of this country's most fantastically dangerous creatures.

With so many things to do and see, you will definitely need a car hire so you can make most of your stay in the city. For a comprehensive list of attractions, restaurants, and accommodation, check out our Brisbane Travel Guide

Brisbane Airport is a great place to pick up a rental car

When discussing the Brisbane Airport, we need to outline that there are two separate terminals -- one for Domestic and one for International flights. They are separate buildings and approximately 3 kilometres away from each other. When you book a vehicle at the airport with us, you will be required to enter in your flight details. This is important information as the supplier will determine which terminal you will be arriving at.

With millions of passengers arriving and departing Brisbane each year, the terminals themselves have modern facilities. Shops, cafes, take-aways and money exchange booths all help to make sure that if you need something before you leave, or as soon as you arrive, you should be able to find it.

Both terminal buildings are very modern and have great facilities. The roads leading to the airport have also been updated, and you can make your way to the Gateway Motorway very easily. This motorway can take you north or south.

DFO, the discount shopping plaza, is located on Airport Drive. You can jump on a free shuttle from the airport and enjoy a spot of shopping in between flights. Shoes, bags, clothes and more are available here.

There is a train station located outside both terminal buildings that can link you direct to most inner and outer suburbs of Brisbane. However, for total convenience we suggest that you book a rental car with us today! Booking with VroomVroomVroom today is hassle-free, too. You won't need to enter any credit card details until you go to collect your rental car.

The Domestic Terminal is noticeably separated into 3 sections, with Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar all utilising a majority of the terminal gates.

Did you know that the parking available at the Domestic Terminal has changed? 

This may affect where you will drop your rental car off upon departure, so make sure you know before you go! To ensure there is a staff member on duty when you land, enter your flight details when placing your booking and your hire car will be ready to go. 

This is especially important when you are arriving really late or really early in the day. The car hire staff members will be able to gauge your arrival by your flight number. With a train service available between the International and Domestic terminals, you can choose to collect a hire car from whichever is most convenient for you.

How can Toll Roads be a cinch in your Brisbane Airport car hire?

Being aware that there are Toll Roads in Brisbane is important for those travelling around the city in a rental car. There is no need to fear though, as we have invaluable information for you that will make maneuvering Brisbane city and its toll roads a piece of cake!

Our car hire suppliers have various options for you to be able to pay your tolls, so that you don't end up with a nasty fine or fee at the end of your stay. Just be sure to ask your hire car company and read through our guide found here and you will be sorted.

What to expect from the Brisbane International Terminal

You will definitely find car rental agents at the welcoming lobby of the Brisbane International Airport. Here are other shops and facilities that you will find at the airport:

Aromas - With 2 cafes available, you can choose to go to level 4 and enjoy a sit down coffee and made to order meal, or go to level 3 and grab an espresso.

Noodle Box - Say no to the fried foods that you crave when travelling, and enjoy a warm meal of noodles, made fresh to order.

Check out the airport's official website, where you can find everything you will need to know, including information on the car rental agents based there.
