Official Brisbane Airport taxi cabs should always be used, to ensure safety and also to avoid overcharging. 

 

The airport taxi meters in Brisbane start at a basic fare, although extra charges are generally added for late-night driving, travel on public holidays in Brisbane, and the journey into nearby Brisbane can prove expensive.

 

Taxis for disabled passengers, or airport passengers with special requirements, can be arranged at the airport in Brisbane Arrivals Hall.

The journey from the airport in Brisbane into central Brisbane will take around 25 minutes, depending on traffic.

 Brisbane Airport Taxi Scams


There are a couple of ongoing scams you should watch for at Brisbane Airport:

 

  • The taxi driver takes you the long way around to your destination therefore raising the fare unnecessarily. It is best to act like you know the streets well, with the odd pretend confidence comment of 'um, where are we going?!'. Or better yet familiarize yourself with a map or GPS so that you can follow along as they drive you to your destination.
  • The taxi meter magically jumps a few dollars and or the meter and the final bill do not match up. The driver should not charge more than what you see on the little screen, so ask the driver why he/she is adding an extra fee at the end of the ride. It is better to pay with cash, if you pay with a credit card or debit card, they will charge 10% more.
