Renting a car in Brisbane: What you need to know

When you rent a car in Brisbane, as in all parts of Australia, there are a few things to bear in mind. Here are some of the most important.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Brisbane?

You can rent a car in Brisbane from the age of 21, but you may be subject to additional charges if you are below the age of 25.

Some car rental operators will also subject older drivers to additional charges or regulations, and those over the age of 75 may be required to produce a medical certificate in order to book.

Is any kind of driving license valid for car rental in Brisbane?

Your driving license is valid for car rental in Australia as long as it is a full license, which you have held for at least a year.

Do I need a credit card to make a booking?

No – most car rental companies in Brisbane will accept alternative forms of payment, such as cash, travelers’ check or debit card. However, you will need a valid credit or debit card in order to make your deposit.

Do I have to pay at the time of the booking?

There’s no need to pay in full at the time of the booking, and in most cases you’ll be allowed to pay when you pick up the car. However, you may be offered a cheaper rate if you pay at the booking stage.

Explore Brisbane: Highlights of Brissie

Brisbane is affectionately known as ‘Brisvegas’, but its wild nightlife is just one thing the city has to offer – you’ll also find stunning natural landscapes, superb food, and a thriving art scene.

South Bank

Make a beeline for Brisbane’s South Bank if it’s art and culture that you’re after. Institutions here include the Gallery of Modern Art, which showcases Australian art from the 1970s to the present, and the Queensland Cultural Centre, home to galleries and performing arts venues surrounded by lush tropical gardens.

Brisbane Powerhouse

There’s nothing that sums up Brissie’s renaissance better than the Brisbane Powerhouse, a contemporary arts complex located in a former power station. Here you’ll find stylish riverside bars and restaurants galore, as well as a range of cultural venues that cover comedy, music and theater.

Moreton Bay

For a laid-back beach escape, drive north to Moreton Bay – an unspoiled coastal region of beaches, mangroves and wetlands. Take a whale-watching boat trip, or cross the bridge to Bribie Island to laze on sleepy beaches. Inland, hike your way through the eucalyptus-shrouded woodlands of D’Aguilar National Park.

Brisbane’s a big city, which, combined with the natural attractions nearby, means that renting a car is the best way to explore – take a look at the options today.
