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!

Alpha provides an excellent array of well-priced, high-quality vehicles for hire. Their service - from the airport shuttle right through the collection of the car - is efficient, friendly, and generally pleasant. On return, the efficiency is magnified, and the shuttle back to the airport is timely and comfortable. The quality of the end-to-end service is very high. I highly recommend Alpha if you ever need a car hire when flying in from Brisbane.

Excellent service and the car I rented was value for money. But the car had fungus smell and the uplostry was dirty. Apart from these the car is good to drive with family members. I recommend this company for car hire. Hope they maintain the car with cleanliness and fungus smell removed before that hand over to customers.

Edited: changing from1 star to 4 because despite the email support being next to nothing - when I picked up second car and the aircon didn’t work consistently I called and explained the intermittent problems and water dripping on my feet and they replaced it the same day. Did waste a half day for me driving there and back but they fixed the problem and that’s most importantI have one positive. The airport shuttle driver was fabulous. But that’s about where it stops.- online communication is extremely poor- car was filthy- car was not full of petrolDespite making contact 3 times about the state of the car and fuel my messages have been ignored. I have left the car far cleaner than when I received it so if their cleaning fee is charged I’ll be annoyed- the warnings about the cleaning fee are quite intense and definitely makes one feel paranoid and unable to enjoy their journeys.Price was okay. Until I extended by 15 hours or so and then completely unreasonable for a car I had had to get up to an acceptable cleaning level of my first day.Photos only a few examples. Unfortunate that I picked the car up in the dark so didn’t see til the morning. On my hire next week I’ll be looking closer for sure.Do not tell me that this is not the ALPHA way and the next customer will benefit. I’d like to know how I will be compensated. And clearly the next customer won’t benefit as I haven’t benefited from all the previous comments with similar complaints.

Customer service is good. Picking up and returning of the car is hassle free. Car is relatively new and well maintained. Price is cheaper compared to other established companies. Shuttle service is efficient. Will definitely recommend to friends and families. Rented from 9th Dec toc 2023.

The airport shuttle was efficient. There’s a free public phone at the international airport that you can use to call for it, and we waited about 10 minutes. The purple buses are easy to spot. When we returned the car at the end of the hire the shuttle went straight away.The car was a fairly basic model with 48k km on the clock but it did the job, and was clean and in good condition. Good value. I would use them again.

Efficient check out but they missed a few comments about what grade of fuel to use and to advise me about the tire pressure warning light. Also the fuel tank in my car was not full when I picked it up.

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!
