A Brisbane Airport access fee applies to all pick-ups originating from an airport taxi rank. The access fee is paid by the passenger to the taxi driver and, as with all charges, may only be applied after the passenger has entered the taxi and the meter is started. There is no airport charge for set down.

E-Tags and Tolls

There are no toll roads in the Moreton Bay Region but these are common in Brisbane. A toll road means you need to pay to use them. Most are fully electronic, so you can’t pay the toll with cash at a tollbooth. Instead you need to pay the toll with an electronic tag or pass.

Sunshine Coast Airport

Sunshine Coast Airport is serviced by Jetstar and Virgin Australia, as well as seasonal services from Auckland with Air New Zealand.
