Explore the State with an economy car rental from your Queensland Airport

Queensland is the second-largest state in Australia. It covers over a quarter of the continent in the northeast and has borders with New South Wales, South Australia, and the Northern Territory. Queensland covers an area of 1,727,000 square kilometres.

Queensland’s geography is part of what makes it so appealing. There are countless significant locations with tablelands, mountain ranges, rivers, and islands, as well as long stretches of outback plains! Queensland has about 4 million people, yet only around half of them live in Brisbane, the state’s largest city. The seashore is home to the majority of the state’s inhabitants. The Gulf of Carpentaria, the Torres Strait, the Coral Sea in the north, and the South Pacific Ocean in the east, define this vast 7400-kilometre stretch.

Sun, sea, relaxation, water activities, a location close to home, and all the conveniences and familiarities that come with travelling within your homeland. Queensland is ideal for individuals of all ages, offering a wide range of activities and entertaining things to do for families and multi-generational vacations.

Couples will find many isolated areas to retreat and escape or enjoy a weekend away in Cairns, Brisbane, or the Gold Coast with the sun, shopping, and nightlife. In Queensland, there is truly something for everyone!

Good cars, excellent variety and keen rates. Easy website booking. Airport pick up and drop off very good. Good people to deal with. I’ve used these guys twice and will continue on every Brisbane visit.

First time hire with Alpha and I must say it was great. Much better value than other hire companies. Was reticent about the off airport location but the shuttle was easy, virtually no waiting and drivers friendly and polite. Check-in and drop off very easy as well. Again, staff were great. Car clean and no problems.

I used Alpha 10 years back when they had just started out and loved their service back then, so when it came time to hire another car in Brisbane I sought them out. Super pleased to see their great work has paid off and they are now a massive company but have retained the small company service and vibe. Super friendly staff from the shuttle drivers, to front desk and phones. 0800 is answered quickly unlike others. Nice vehicles and great price. Will be back for sure.

Great experience renting a truck (both times). In both cases - clean interior, runs well. Hydraulic lift, A/C, cruise control were in good working order. Booked and paid online, no hassle pickup and drop off, friendly staff. Also, great price on truck rental, looks like the best in the city. Don't forget to fill that tank when returning the vehicle.

The business is located in the perfect spot in Hendra and there is a service station only metres away, making it super easy to refuel just before returning the car. The staff are quick, friendly and efficient. The car I had was relatively new and in excellent condition (although it did need a more thorough clean, which could be due to my last minute booking). The shuttle bus runs regularly and the driver was extremely helpful and considerate. Overall, I was very happy with every aspect of my first experience with them. It won't be my last!
