If you go to Brisbane with a group of several people, with your family and friends, we recommend hiring a car. Therefore, you will save on services of tour companies and get your own unforgettable impressions. Points of interest not hidden behind the wall of tourists, restaurants, where locals rest, routes hidden from prying eyes, all this will be available to you along with a personal car. Booking a car is simple, use the cars-scanner service.
A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.
Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.
Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. The policies of your car rental company may be found on our website in the Age Restrictions section.
To travel calmly and to not to think about possible damage to the car, take out a full insurance policy; in this case, any difficulties with the car cease to be your concern and fall on the shoulders of an insurance company.
Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises. Example:
|Car rental company||Car class||Apx. Deposit amount|
|Mini / Economy||200-400 £|

Do you like fast driving? Try not to do this in the city and its surroundings; proceedings with local road patrol service will not add charm to your vacation. Speed limits specified in Brisbane:
Carefully follow the information on the road signs; sometimes the allowed speed is reduced for some local reasons.
In Brisbane, as well as in other European cities, adherence of traffic rules is strictly monitored, and punishments are rigorously enforced. Follow the speed limits and traffic rules, do not drink at the wheel, and most likely, a meeting with the road patrol service staff will be a threatening one. There is also a chance to get fined in everyday life. We have collected the most common situations you should beware of:
It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.
