Very good customer service - good easy pick up and prompt shuttle to airport - would recommend.
10.0 Excellent21 Jun 2021
After googling cheaper car companies and reading horror review stories it was refreshing to speak to a helpful, friendly staff member who reassured me in regards to the cars and the service Crazy Clarks offer. Thanks Nigel. Thank you also to Peter who picked us up from the airport. Peter was also very friendly and offered local dining tips. Our little Suzuki Swift was ideal for Brisbane driving and parking. We'll definitely book again.

I had done my application online, but the Budget office at the Brisbane airport had NO WORKING INTERNET CONNECTION, so I was unable to show them what I had purchased on my laptop. Yep, that's right. I had to purchase a MORE EXPENSIVE deal there, and then had to drive downtown the next day to the Budget office and get it straightened out, and I'm still not sure that it was done properly.

7.2 Good15 May 2019
The original lady i spoke to at Hendra was excellent. However had to make several calls to get advice on repairs to puncture i had recieved. Phone Brisbane office which then transfers you to Hendra where you have to wait lengthy waits at both places. Very frustrating.The actual cost was more than i expected in fact double because of insurance costs. Plus i had half a day getting a puncture repaired as tyre dealers didn't have the unusual size that Hyudai have put on there latest cars.

You couldn’t pay me to drive a Suzuki Swift back home...until Inhired this car. Great customer service and this car was LEGEND.Honestly, the insurance cost more than I expected, but might as well make sure I have $0 liability Incase of a catastrophe. Everything else was top, 100%, LEGIT, LEGEND. Insurance wasn’t even that expensive so maybe I’m being a drama queen, haha!

Classic bait and switch at Brisbane AirportI booked the premium car three months in advance - they didn't have one when I arrived. They offered either a large gas guzzling SUV or a Camry. I took the Camry, and they refused to give me a lower rate. End up paying hundreds of $ more than I should have for the 3-week rental, but it was 5:30am after a 14 hour flight and I wasn't about to go shopping elsewhere.

9.6 Excellent12 Feb 2019
Great experience for the price - good value.The staff were very friendly and helpful. We decided we wanted to extend another day and called a few hours before we were due to return and Alpha were happy to add another day on at the same price - no excessive charge which was great. No complaints about the car either, great condition and very economical which helped with the overall expense of hiring a car!The pick up / shuttle service is a little clunky and adds time on to the overall exchange but it’s worth it for the cheaper price you get for shopping a little further a field.

Despite Alamo/Enterprise's claim that they have a rental counter at Brisbane International Airport, they do not. They let you book and then 4 or so hours before your flight lands they send you an email that the counter is closed due to covid and make you head over to the domestic terminal to collect your car. Not practical and against current international arrival covid management regulations (can't travel on public transport)

6.0 Good20 Mar 2018
Get what you pay forEasy pick up and drop off at airportExterior of car was dirty and tires needed air, had to demand a new car after we looked at the car and saw the wheels bowing out from lack of air. Terrible customer service, dodgy insurance eg claims you have rediculous excess to pay even if you aren’t in fault of any damage to the car, even if it’s fault of another driver.
6.0 Good9 Jan 2018
Car was very clean and comfortableHidden extras in costs, our total ended up being double what we had originally planned. Two to four weeks to return the $200 bond, am currently trying to find out why so long.

Pick up and drop off was simple and convenient.The company claimed i damaged the car, sent me one vague email stating they were looking into the damage done and would contact me with their findings but then proceeded to charge my credit card US$ 830.00 without following up on their first email.

  • Brisbane is the capital of the Sunshine State and boasts the best outdoor activities Australia has to offer. Whether your preference is to head upstream and take in the winding beauty of the Brisbane River or escape to the beaches that line the coast, renting a car will provide you unrivaled access to Australia’s great outdoors. Don’t miss the opportunity to travel an hour north of Brisbane to the world famous Australia Zoo, where you can see the largest display of the adorable and terrifying animals that Down Under is known for. If you don’t quite have the time to drive to Australia Zoo, consider taking a trip to Daisy Hill Koala Center to see the famous marsupials.
  • Brisbane Airport is located 12 km (7 mi) from the city center has many major hire companies for you to choose from. Once you arrive at Brisbane Airport, the counters will be located on Level 2 of the International Terminal. If you are arriving on a domestic flight after visiting a different Australian city, the hire desks will be located on Level 1 of the Domestic Terminal.
  • Australians drive on the left-hand side of the road, so this will be the first thing to get used to. If you are driving towards or near bushland or parks such as D’Aguilar or North Stradbroke Island, be wary of animals that may venture on to the road. Take care and reduce your speed if you do see any animals by the side of the road. Be careful if you plan to have a glass of wine or beer with your lunch and the drive, as the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.05%.
  • Rush hour can cause plenty of congestion on the highways leading to and from Brisbane, as many workers commute to surrounding cities such as the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. The traditional rush hour occurs in Brisbane between 7 am and 9 am during the morning work scramble, and between 4 pm and 7 pm in the afternoon.
