East Coast are quite good, and a bit cheaper than others as they're located just outside the airport.

 

Lots of luck with your trip

Apex car rentals (400 Nudgee Road) are fantastic - my parents used them when they came over. I wish we had known before we came!

They quote all the prices up front on the website. Be very careful using a lot of the car rental companies as the price they quote means you have a $3000+ excess. When you walk in to pick it up then you get told that it is pretty much double to bring the excess down.

Apex includes a sat nav too which most others charge a fair whack for. The rates are cheaper than all the others I checked because I think their fleet are a couple years old.

They have amazing reviews too.

Just trying to remember as we did that last year. We just picked one up at the airport as there are tonnes around. We needed a mini-van style due to all the luggage and 4 of us. I want to say it was around $50 but don't quote me on that.

 

I think that Apex do a free shuttle service to and from the terminals if you do want to get it that at point.

Where we stayed in Spring Hill last year (Tribeca) had free parking so we just parked the rental car there.

I had a great experience with Apex too, we took the all-inclusive package, it was still cheaper than some other companies PLUS we got free GPS, 2 car seats and a 24 h roadside assistance. They picked us up at the airport.
