Kids Travel Free
Kids aged (5-14) travel free between the Airport and City stations when accompanied by a paying adult, subsequent to the following terms.
Details of the Promotion
The offer is only available between the Domestic and International Airport stations and City Stations. These City Stations include Central Station, Roma Street, Fortitude Valley, South Brisbane, Bowen Hills, Albion, Wooloowin and Eagle Junction.
You can still purchase children's tickets at all other QR suburban stations. You'll only need to pay the cost of travel to the city, not all the way to the airport.
How to Take Up this Offer
In order to receive your free child travel, you must purchase a paper ticket at the same time as the child's from the airport or an attended QR station. Children will receive free tickets (to/from city stations) for their travel. However, each child still needs a valid ticket to travel on the QR train network.
If you are travelling from a QR station that is unattended, your child's ticket needs to be purchased from a ticket vending machine. In this case, the fare will be for the Translink zones travelled (even from city stations). The Airtrain portion of the fare will be free of charge.
Savings on AirtrainConnect
You'll be happy to know we've reduced the rates on our AirtrainConnect service for children and families. With our family fare (2 adults and 2 children, aged 14 and under), both of the children are now free. The AirtrainConnect service involves a train transfer to the Gold Coast and a chauffeured vehicle to your Gold Coast Accommodation.
An adult purchases their paper ticket and a child's ticket to the Airport from the Central Station ticket office. The child's ticket would be free.
