Brisbane car hire

I want to hire a car in Brisbane and drop off in Maleny if possible - anybody know what car hire companies are in Maleney? Also any recommendation of reasonable hotel in Brisbane for one night and how to get there from airport.

1. Re: Brisbane car hire

There are no hire car companies in Maleny, which is a large village (we would say a small town). Budget and Thrifty have offices in Caloundra and you could get a taxi up from there, which leaves the issue of how you get away once you've arrived. I don't think your option is an option, sorry.

Have stayed at Ibis, Mercure, Holiday Inn, Novotel, all are (relatively) reasonably priced. Dont expect last minute bargains especially midweek when rooms can be difficult to find. For good ratebetter to book well in advance.

Brisbane CBD about 20 mins from airport (more in peak hour). If travelling alone Bus or Train cheapest option, if two Taxi won't cost much more, if more than that taxi is cheaper.

Cheers skip

Hi, I would not agree with getting a taxi from Caloundra - that would eb quite expensive. Am wondering why you want to drop the car off in maleny - where are you going form there & how do you plan to get there?

To get intothe city from Brisbnae Airport - catch the train from the airport - depending where you are staying you get off at central or Roma St. There is a hotel at Roma St - think it is Holiday Inn.

Other recommended places to stay - Medina Apartments on the river in the city (not as close to the train though), Pacific International Apartments.

Hop this helps

Thank you for your help - think I have given up the idea of driving and will get a bus instead. I am visiting relatives in Crystal Waters and am being picked up in Maleny. So won't bother with going into Brisbane.

You could also catch the train to Landsborough, Depending on your time of arrival, there is a local guy who will pick you up and take you to Maleny or perhaps your friends could pick you up from Landsborough, not that far from Maleny.
