How do I pick up a rental car at Mackay Airport?

An extensive range of car hire options are available at Mackay Airport. See below for clear instructions on how to find Mackay Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car.

Mackay Airport terminal

  • Mackay Airport Terminal

    Mackay Airport has a single terminal that handles a few domestic routes, primarily to Brisbane. Bonza, Jetstar, Qantas, and Virgin Australia all have flights using the airport.

Pick up instructions

  • Is your rental company desk on-airport or off-airport?

    Mackay Airport Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire car desks are located in the terminal near the baggage claim carousel. Directions
  • Finalise your rental agreement and collect keys

    Once you are at the hire car company desk, you’ll need to finalise your rental agreement and collect your vehicle keys.
  • Head to the designated car park to pick up your car

    Mackay Airport Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire cars at Mackay Airport are parked outside the terminal in the car park. Directions
  • What should I do if the desk is unattended?

    Hopefully the car rental company has left a sign with instructions or a contact number. In this situation, use the number they have provided and let them know that you have arrived or follow the directions out to the car park where a rental attendant will help you.

    If there is no sign, check your booking confirmation email for a contact phone number.

    If you still have no luck with making contact, call us at 1300 722 920 and consider heading to the parking area and look for uniformed staff. Don’t be alarmed. It’s not unusual to see unmanned rental desks, but rest assured there’s usually help out in the car park where the rentals are located.

    We'll be right back

Returning a hire car at Mackay Aiport

  • Mackay Airport Terminal

    You will need to return your on-airport hire car at the same location as pick up.
