Frequently asked questions

You should receive a total refund on your reservation if you notify us at least six hours ahead of the scheduled collection time. Scan the rental policy for all the information. Our Customer Service Portal may have the answers too.
Ease of parking, affordability and terrific mileage are just some of the reasons compact vehicles are the number once choice in Brisbane.

Drivers with a valid license aged 21 and above can rent a vehicle in Brisbane. While some companies may be willing to rent to drivers younger than 21, you can expect extra fees.

Higher limits are in place for luxury and specialty vehicles.
Your driver’s license and a credit card in the same name are essentials. Don’t want to take out the company’s insurance plan? In that case, you’re also likely to need proof of your own coverage. Requirements can differ from rental company to rental company, so read your policy thoroughly.
In Brisbane, as with all of Australia, motorists drive on the left-hand side of the road. Take things slow and get comfortable driving on the opposite side if it’s your first time.
Yes. The streets of Brisbane are waiting for you and your current U.S. License is all you need to explore them. Before your trip, it’s a good idea to apply for an International Driving Permit as another valid form of identification.
