Budget Car Rental Brisbane City

Your budget car hire Brisbane CBD will suit all needs and budgets.

Budget Car Rental Brisbane CBD

Brisbane is the bustling riverside metropolis of Queensland, nestled between the sea and stunning national parkland. It’s a global metropolitan area that’s constantly growing. Brisbane’s reputation as a centre for arts, culture, and eating has risen in recent years.

What makes Brisbane so unique is how it has managed to maintain its tight connections to nature as well as its classic, laid-back Queensland attitude.

While Brisbane is also known for its efficient public transport system, securing your own cheap car hire in Brisbane City will give you more flexibility in your itinerary to explore what the city has to offer.

We’ve curated a list of activities and attractions which you can explore with your budget car hire in Brisbane City:  

Farmer’s Markets

The Brisbane region has some lovely farmland, and there’s no better way to appreciate the hard work these farmers put in than to visit their markets. This list of Brisbane’s most fantastic farmers’ markets will introduce you to fresh local produce from the Lockyer Valley to Somerset and the Scenic Rim. 

From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., one of Brisbane’s best farmers’ markets will set up shop in Brisbane Square. Meet farmers and producers, buy fresh produce and pasta, sample cheese and jams, and buy meat, seafood, and hot smoked salmon to take home with the kids. 

Paddington Shopping District

You’ll find a variety of trendy boutiques, homewares businesses, magnificent antiques, presents, and gems as you travel down Given and Latrobe Terraces. 

What distinguishes Paddington from other shopping locations is that many of the establishments are one-of-a-kind or small local companies maintained by enthusiastic and experienced proprietors who are eager to assist you in having an outstanding shopping experience. 

The Scenic Rim 

The Scenic Rim is a lush region rich in lakes, mountains, fertile soil, and vast plains. Everything from pecans and beets to sheep cheese, free-range eggs, and olive oil is harvested and grown by a slew of food producers. 

Local chefs and home cooks love it, so stop by the Rim and stock up on gourmet ingredients for your next dinner. 

Brisbane Distillery Company 

It’s time to showcase one of the top bars in Brisbane’s West End in terms of entertainment. There’s no doubting that Australia’s spirit and alcohol business is thriving, with small-batch distilleries, microbreweries, and boutique bars and experiences springing up all across the country.  

And, at least in Brisbane, the Brisbane Distillery Company is making significant progress. The Brisbane Distillery Company is manufacturing new batches of gin, vodka, and rum on-site and allowing visitors to manufacture and distil their own gin. 

Spoiled for Choice 

Brisbane City is a treasure mine of things to do, with heritage buildings and sleek glass towers. Explore everything from bustling commercial districts to kid-friendly activities, as well as quiet gallery strolls, high-end eateries, and alleyway brews.

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!
There is no selected car class in current office. Please choose another Class!
