Travel Tips in Brisbane
Beat Brisbane's Traffic Snarls
If you plan to visit Brisbane you are sure to have heard about the ever increasing traffic congestions the city is facing. Travel to the CBD from the airport could take more than 45 minutes in a taxi in peak hour – costing you over $45! There is nothing worse then sitting in traffic, let alone after you have just got off a plane and ready to start your holiday. Or missing your plane home because you were stuck in traffic on the way to the airport. That is why Airtrain is the most reliable form of transport on your next trip to Brisbane. Airtrain offers a range of services to accommodate for all needs. Read on to find out what service most suits you.

The price was reasonable for a corner suite with views of the river and South Bank. There was a great kitchen space and large tv plus dvd player. We could walk to South Bank and everywhere we needed to go. Left the car in the parking garage the whole time. I was pleasantly surprised.
