To provide the widest possible choice at Brisbane Airport, we partner with car rental companies with branches within the airport itself, known as on-airport, along with off-airport operators who have depots located in immediately adjacent suburbs. The advantage of on-airport locations is the convenience of pick-up and drop-off whilst off-airport providers will often have cheaper rates and are serviced by regular shuttle buses to both terminals.

Examples of on-airport car rental providers at Brisbane Airport include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz, National, Thrifty and SIXT. Whilst off-airport operators include Alpha, Bargain Car Rentals and East Coast.

The rental companies have counters in the arrival halls of both the International and domestic terminals. For those rental companies with on-airport branch locations, vehicles can be collected and dropped off in the parking area opposite the terminals.

For off-airport operators there are regular shuttle bus transfers. At the domestic terminal access the pickup area adjacent to the P1 Car Park via the Skywalk and take the lift at the end of the walkway down to Level 1. For International arrivals follow the signs down the ramp from level 2 (Arrivals level) at the northern end of the Terminal.

What You Need to Know about Brisbane Airport

For many travellers, Brisbane Airport (BNE) is the gateway to Queensland’s capital.

Located in the eastern portion of town, near where the Brisbane River flows out into Moreton Bay, the site has undergone tremendous change since its humble beginnings in 1922, back when it was known as Eagle Farm. Temporarily used as a US military base in the 1940’s, it eventually reopened to the public in 1946 and has since become Australia’s third busiest airport.
