Brisbane Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Brisbane Airport was first called Eagle Farm Airport, named after the farmland it was built on in 1925. It is the main international airport serving both the city of Brisbane and southeastern Queensland.

As Queensland is known as the Sunshine State, one important thing is to make sure your rental car has airconditioning. Look for the airconditioning badge on our search page to make sure you won’t suffer in the sweltering heat.

Main airlines

Brisbane Airport serves as a hub for both Qantas and Virgin Australia. Jetstar Airways also uses the airport as a base. Air New Zealand, Fly Corporate, and China Airlines are also important airlines serving the airport.

Terminals

The two passenger terminals are the Domestic Terminal and the International Terminal. You can easily move between them with either the free Terminal Transfer Bus or free AIRPARK Transfer Bus.

This article focuses mostly on the International Terminal. See the separate page for Brisbane Domestic Airport (BNET02).

Location

Brisbane Airport is about 18 km (11.2 mi) from downtown Brisbane. Airport Drive, Airport Link/M7, and M3 are the main roads connecting the airport to the city, but keep in mind that Airport Link/M7 is a toll road.

It is also worth noting that all toll roads in Australia, including the Airport Link, are cashless. The car rental company you rent from may have en e-Tag on the car already. If so, you’ll be charged a small fee for every day you use a toll road in addition to the cost of the tolls.

The alternative if this is not the case is to purchase a Road Pass from Linkt (as opposed to an e-Tag). This works for 30 days and will backdate to cover any tolls in the previous 3 days when it starts. In this case, you could use the Airport Link and then purchase the Road Pass. If you travel further to New South Wales or Victoria, you will also need to purchase sperate passes for those states.

Top car rental companies

SIXT, Europcar, Alamo, and Atlas Car & Truck Rental, and East Coast Car Rental all serve Brisbane Airport.

Car rental desks

The exact pick-up location of your rental car depends on which rental company you choose. Europcar and Alamo are located at the International Terminal of the airport. Their desks are on Level 2 behind the Spoon Cafe. Atlas Car & Truck Rental, East Coast Car Rental, and Sixt are all located just outside of the airport.

Services and facilities

You’ll find lots of fast food outlets, bars, and restaurants, as well as stores and duty-free outlets. There are also several ATMs, an on-site hotel, parenting rooms, first aid rooms and free showers in both terminals, a spa, a barber shop, and a prayer room. There are left luggage services on the ground floor of the international terminal, next to the car park entrance, and also in the domestic terminal outside the Virgin and Qantas zones. The airport is equipped for travelers with reduced mobility. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

Nearest gas station

Coles Express, which has the same address as the airport, is right next to it and close to Great Barrier Road and Moreton Drive. It requires a slight detour if you are returning a car to the International Terminal of the airport, though.

A new Caltex station that opened in July 2019 just off the East-West Arterial Road is now the preferred station both for those returning a car to the International terminal and those returning a car to off-airport locations. It is less than a block away from SIXT/East Coast Car Rental and 2km from Atlas Car and Truck Rental. It is 4km from the International Terminal but does is directly on the way.
