If you’re visiting Brisbane on your next holiday, one of the best ways to get around is a hire car. Although there is an extensive public transport system and a number of taxi companies in the South East Queensland city, it isn’t always reliable and can cost a lot of money. Hiring a car in Brisbane with a good rental company gives you the freedom to go where you want, when you want, without too much strain on your wallet.

Brisbane is a beautiful place to visit and is central to amazing destinations. South of the city is the Gold Coast and it boasts golden beaches, a great nightlife and a number of theme parks like the famous DreamWorld, Movie World and Wet’n’Wild, just to name a few. The city is known for its beautiful architecture and great shopping, with plenty of spots for afternoon tea or something more substantial to get you through the night. Further north of Brisbane city, to the Sunshine Coast, lies some of the best beaches Australia has to offer. It also boasts great camping areas and the world renowned Australia Zoo.

Although there is a lot to do in the city, if you want to see all South East Queensland has to offer, a hire car is the way to go. Getting from the city to the Sunshine Coast takes over an hour and two different trains, whereas by car this could take up to 20 minutes less, with the opportunity to stop when you please. The same can be said for going south. If you want to get the most out of your trip, a hire car can help.

Hiring a car is also a great idea if you have a bigger family. It can be hard to organise so many people and taxi, train or bus fares can add up quickly.
