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

There are a selection of car rental brands to select from Townsville Airport. See below for clear instructions on how to find Townsville Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car.

Townsville Airport terminal

  • Townsville Airport Terminal

    Townsville Airport has one terminal and it serves Airnorth, Alliance, Hinterland Aviation, Jetstar, Qantas, Regional Express, and Virgin Australia.

Pick up instructions

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

    Townsville Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire car desks are conveniently located in the arrivals area. 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

    Townsville Terminal

    On airport
    Once you’ve collected your keys from the car rental desk, you can pick your car up from the car park outside the terminal. 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
