Frequently asked questions


International drivers are welcome to rent vans in Brisbane. You just need to hold a full unrestricted driver licence from your home country, with a formal English translation if it is in another language.

Our pricing works slightly differently from traditional van rental companies. When you borrow a car with Car Next Door, you pay for both the time you have the car, and the distance you drive. If you are on the no-monthly-fee Featherweight plan, you'll also pay a booking fee and if you choose, an optional excess reduction fee.

When you borrow vans with Car Next Door, you’re covered with comprehensive insurance policy. If you’re responsible for damage, the most you’ll need to pay is your Damage and Loss Liability amount - subject to some common-sense insurance exclusions.

With Car Next Door you can access hundreds of vans parked on streets and in car parks all over Brisbane. There’s probably one within a few minutes walk from your home!

Each van has both hourly and daily rates that are set by the Owner of the van. Typical rates for cars are $5–$8 per hour, and or $25-$40 per day. Vans cost around $9-12 per hour and $50-60 per day. This will be charged upfront at the time you make the booking. You also pay a distance charge for each kilometre you drive. The distance rate is chosen by the van's owner - it will be 21c, 33c or 45c per kilometre - and clearly displayed on the van's profile. This includes your fuel and also covers the owner for wear and tear on the van.

Hiring a van in Brisbane - useful information

You can hire a van in Brisbane from a traditional car rental agency or from a car-sharing service like Car Next Door. Going with a car-sharing service is generally cheaper and easier than using a rental agency.

With Car Next Door you can book vans by the hour or the day, so if you don’t need a van for a whole day you won’t need to pay for time you don’t use. Plus there’s no waiting in line at the depot and no paperwork. Just join Car Next Door for free and book a van near you on the app.

How much does it cost to hire a van in Brisbane?

Hiring a van from a rental agency can cost well over $150 a day. You’ll pay a daily rate (even if you don’t need the van for the whole day), plus fuel, and if you want to reduce your insurance excess you could be paying an extra $30+ a day.

With Car Next Door, rates for borrowing vans start at $10 an hour and $40 a day, plus distance charges. You can reduce your excess to $500 for just $1.50 an hour or $18 a day.

Do you need a special licence to drive a van in Brisbane?

You can drive a van on a normal Queensland car licence, provided it weighs less than 4.5 tonnes and has a maximum of 12 seats. This includes all standard moving vans, and all cars available for hire on Car Next Door.
