Complimentary Pick-Up and Delivery

Easy Accommodations

If you need accommodation in Brisbane, we can put you in touch with some of the many motels near our office. We also do free pick-ups from these locations, so you won’t have to worry about how to get your rental car after settling in.

24 Hour Roadside Assistance

All of our family sedans and station wagon rentals are covered by 24-hour roadside assistance. This gives you additional confidence in our bargain car rentals, allowing you to hire us without fear or worry of being unprotected if something goes wrong.

If you do experience a problem somewhere along your drive, simply call the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) (AA equivalent). We’ll provide you their telephone number beforehand so you’ll have it ready when you need it. An experienced RACQ mechanic will then arrive shortly to help you.

Keep in mind that all mechanical problems will be charged to our account, so you won’t have to worry about added expenses if something goes wrong because of mechanical issues.

This 24-hour roadside assistance is another reason our customers trust and prefer our service. Ours is the cheap car rental service in Brisbane that you’ve always wanted – the one with real customer support and service!

(Note: If you’re in northern NSW, your request for assistance will be handled by RACQ’s sister automobile association, the NRMA).

What to do in the Brisbane Region

Queensland’s capital, Brisbane, is Australia’s only subtropical city, blending old sandstone buildings with sleek modern skyscrapers and tranquil parks with vibrant shops and bars. From here, you can easily visit the Gold Coast (home to Surfers Paradise) and experience Aussie beach life with its theme parks and rolling waves. The Gold Coast also provides easy access to the Hinterland, Australia’s largest reserve of subtropical rainforest, where you can camp under the stars or relax at a mountainside retreat.

If you’re looking for some culture and entertainment, Brisbane certainly won’t disappoint. Brisbane’s vivid art scene is reflected in the street theatre culture, and you’ll find urban artwork scattered throughout the streets. For music and live entertainment, simply soak up some live music and mini-concerts at venues around town.

You’ll also be spoiled by Brisbane’s growing culinary scene. Enjoy succulent seafood platters and fine dining by the Brisbane River or taste the multicultural flavours at West End or Chinatown.

If you’re feeling adventurous, the blue waters of Moreton Bay are home to numerous islands, with each one offering a different holiday experience! Take your time exploring these islands, which are widely recognised for their white sandy beaches and tranquil camping spots.

Just an hour’s drive north of Brisbane is the Sunshine Coast, a region of scenic coastal towns that offer great family holidays and relaxing getaways. Attractions include the resorts in Caloundra, Maroochydore, and Noosa, which finely complement the magnificent Glass House Mountains nearby.

Clearly, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in Brisbane. Your holiday here can take you as far north as Bundaberg, through the Sunshine Coast, across the Darling Downs, west to Dalby, and through the Gold Coast to go as far as Coffs Harbour in NSW.

As one of the world’s friendliest and most liveable cities, Brisbane will always welcome you with open arms. Our friendly team of ‘locals’ will help you make the most of your time in this part of Queensland.
