There have been so many times when I’ve needed to get to the airport smack bang when Mr. G, my parents and in-laws are all working and there’s absolutely no way other than a taxi or train to get to the airport. A taxi from my house to the airport could cost anything from $140 to $160 one way. If you were to double that amount for a return taxi trip it would be the equivalent to some interstate airfares!
I’ve taken the train. Although it’s a long trip because I live 45 minutes out of Brisbane City and having to lug your bags around is annoying, it’s definitely a whole lot cheaper!

I’ve also driven my car and parked at the airport.
These are the prices for the Brisbane Domestic Terminal based on arriving on a Friday morning and returning in the evening on a Sunday. Still loads cheaper than a taxi.
But the best one is cheap airport parking with one of the offsite Airport Parking vendors.
Although it is offsite, it’s completely stress free and by far the cheapest option. You simply drive in, hand over your keys and jump in the shuttle bus. They have shuttle buses going constantly.
We used Andrews Airport Parking for our trip to New Zealand and they were the friendliest people ever and not once did we have to handle our luggage! Check out these offers from Shop A Docket – $38 for for 3 days in Brisbane! That certainly beats all other options.
What are your tips for getting to the airport without stress and without it breaking the bank?
