How do I get started with Uber?
If you're not already an Uber rider, you can sign up via the app store. You'll need to provide your contact number and credit card details and download the app.
From there, you can search for and book your ride. It's a book-and-ride rideshare app, so you can't pre-book.
You'll also always be given a fare estimate before you commit to your journey so that you know roughly how much your fare will be.
Uber is available at Brisbane Airport and pick-up is located at dedicated rideshare pick-up zones a short walk from the terminal.
For domestic arrivals, head to the "Pre-Booked Express and Ride Booking" pick-up area outside the terminal. For international arrivals, walk towards the buses and coaches passenger pick-up zone.
There is a surcharge of $3.90 for airport pickups. This is automatically added to your fare.
