What you need to know when renting a car at Brisbane airport

Car rental Brisbane airport

Whether you’re travelling overseas via Brisbane and want to take advantage of your stopover by touring our stunning city, visiting Brisbane for a holiday, or coming here for work, access to affordable, reliable and professional hire cars is a must!

Luckily, car rentals at Brisbane international airport and domestic airport are easily accessible and wonderfully convenient.

In this article, we break down everything you need to know about car rental at Brisbane airport.

Convenient airport locations

There are a range of affordable rental car options at both the international and domestic terminals.

Brisbane domestic airport car hire location

If you’re on level 1, head to the baggage claim area at both the Qantas and Virgin ends of the terminal.

Brisbane international airport car hire location

If you’re on level 1, you’ll find the car hire behind the cafe area.

More car rental Brisbane airport options for more choice

While some car rental companies operate directly from the airport terminals, there are plenty of others that don’t.

Our team at Andy’s Auto Rentals, for example, provide hassle-free, convenient and timely transfers to and from the airport and our off-airport car hire location.

It’s super easy to find our transfer vehicles as well.

Brisbane domestic airport location

If you’re at the domestic terminal, you will find us in the area adjacent to the P1 car pack. You can reach us by heading across the skywalk and taking the lift at the end of the walkway to Level 1.

Brisbane international airport location

If you’re at the international airport, head to the northern end of Level 2 and simply follow the signs down the ramp.

The benefits of going with an off site car rental

Travellers – especially those who may not have booked a hire car ahead of time – often congest around the rental outlets that are located in the actual terminal. Unfortunately, the limited number of vehicles means that it’s likely that you’re not going to get the type of vehicle you need or want even after waiting a significant period of time.

Jumping into a convenient transfer vehicle of ours means you get to leave the confusing hustle and bustle of Brisbane airport behind you and be chauffeured directly to our leading customer service centre and placed behind the wheel of the perfect car to suit your preferences.

What vehicles are available?

Andy’s offers a wide variety of vehicles so you’re bound to find one that looks, works and feels right for you. Our fleet calls under six categories:

  • Cars – From SUVs to compact cars, and from large family vehicles to medium-sized sedans, we’ve got everything and anything!
  • Prestige – Need something with a little head-turning glamour? Our selection of Ford Mustangs and BMW convertibles are sure to do the trick.
  • 4WDs – Toyota, Nissan… We’ve got the perfect vehicle to complement your on-road or off-road adventure.

Mini-bus, utes, and vans – Uniquely, our offering includes a range of larger vehicles so there’s simply no family, group or party we can’t house in an Andy’s vehicle.

When can you hire a vehicle?

Both our Brisbane international airport and domestic airport services are available all day every day and all night every night. While we’re normally open from 8am until 5pm on weekdays and 8am to 2pm on weekends, we’re always contactable and available whenever you need us.

We’re dedicated to making your visit to Brisbane more enjoyable and less stressful, so make sure to book your car with us and we’ll make sure it’s ready when you need it.

What do I do once I land in Brisbane?

Welcome! Once you’ve landed and have collected your baggage, give us a call on +61 7 3868 1935 during normal operating hours or 0745 193 131 during non-operating hours and our representative will meet you at the pick up point.

We’ll drive you out of the terminal to our office at 490 Nudgee Road, Hendra QLD 4011, which is just a few kilometres away. Then we’ll sort out the paperwork in a flash and have you off in your rental car before you know it.

And yes, our shuttle service is completely free.

Once you’ve confirmed your booking with us, we’ll get in touch to remind you of the collection process, especially for after-hours hires.

Please note that after-hours fees do apply for collection and return and our after-hours office location is at 539 Nudgee Road, Hendra. After-hours operation is between 4.30pm and 8am on weekdays and 1pm to 8am on weekends.

Filling up with fuel

When you hire a car from Andy’s, you’ll drive off with a full tank of petrol. To avoid being hit with a surcharge we ask that you fill the tank up on your way to returning the vehicle. Luckily, it’s super convenient with two different petrol stations located right by the airport.

  • BNE Service Centre
  • Shell Coles Express
