Things to consider when driving a rental car in Brisbane

Our VroomVroomVroom family is proud to call Brisbane our hometown. 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 information that we think are important when hiring a car:

  1. 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 supplier has to process it.
  3. Traffic - We wanted you to have a hassle-free driving experience in Brisbane that's why we would like to share this cool map from SNARL which you can also download in your phone for live traffic updates. 
  4. Weather - Being situated in the "Sunshine State", the sun is no stranger to this beautiful city. The weather can be humid and sub-tropical with reasonably warm temperatures for most of the year so no matter what time of the year you are visiting, be sure to bring some car window shades with an average temperature of 16-26°C. To check the latest weather and forecasts, visit the Bureau of Meteorology website

If you're looking to go on an extended road trip, you might also like to consider renting a campervan. VroomVroomVroom can help you find the perfect Brisbane campervan hire deal.
