Brisbane Airport is a well-oiled machine, testament to the improvements most Australian airports have made in recent years.

The airport itself is located just 15 minutes from the CBD.

What you need to know about Brisbane car rental

Here are some handy tips for driving on East Coast Australian roads:
  • Temperatures can reach uncomfortably high numbers, so always make sure you have enough water – for your engine and your own taste buds.
  • You drive on the same side of the road as New Zealand and the UK, on the left – Americans drive on the right.
  • Seat belts are compulsory for children and adults.
  • Rental vehicles are generally automatic transmission, while renters have to be 21 or older.
  • The speed limit in residential and built-up areas is 50kph, up to 110kph on freeways.
  • There are numerous toll roads on the M1, M2 and M7 – check online before you go travelling.

Customer care is everything

We are part of a large airport rental network that has arranged more than 900,000 bookings around the world. What allows us to deliver such a comprehensive service is exceptional distribution and booking technology, with a customer service team available 24 hours on a weekday, 12 hours on weekends. You can amend your rental at no cost and we do not charge cancellation fees on most vehicles – there are exceptions, so check carefully.

We won’t be beaten on price

If you happen to find a better deal on the same brand of vehicle and time you’re travelling on another website, not only will we beat it by a dollar – we will also offer you a 25% discount off DriveEasy excess cover. It applies to advertised deals or written quotes – we may require evidence for this offer to be valid and is subject to availability. Check terms and conditions.

The Holiday of a Lifetime

Once you have sorted the best car rental deal online, it’s time to get going. The east coast of Australia is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the world, whether you go north or south. Or perhaps you’re travelling inland to experience the timeless beauty of Ayers Rock? Wherever you want to go, we can get you there safely and cheaply. It’s time to get into gear…
