Family Car Rentals – Gold Coast, Queensland Australia

Established in 2001 by Darryl, Denise and (middle son) Grant Essington-Wilson; we are a small car rental operator targeting families who are visiting the Gold Coast (Australia’s holiday capital) from all over Australia and abroad.

We do things very differently from other rental car businesses, focusing on maximum enhancement of customer satisfaction with service and value.

Our value commitment is summed up as “Lowest Price – Guaranteed!”

This means that if someone found a comparable rental car deal that was cheaper than ours, we would reduce our price by double the difference, plus an additional $50.

We offer up to four different payment plans, offering our customers unrivalled choices.

Our service commitment embodies:

     ♦ Triple Level Cyber Security website

      "24/7" vehicle collection or return

      Airport, office or accommodation pick up/return

      Free additional drivers

      Free child safety seats in rental cars and also in transfer vehicles

      Valet luggage service

      Immediate refund of Security Bonds

      Current, recent and older model vehicles to match each customer’s budget

      Accurate vehicle descriptions, with no use of “or similar”

      Four insurance packages with no unpleasant surprises, two of them with a Zero Excess

      Vehicle Orientation Card in every vehicle, specific to each individual vehicle

Value and Service aspirations can only be achieved if they are backed by contractual Terms and Conditions which are fair to customers.

We have achieved the status of Australia’s Fairest Rental Contract Terms & Conditions, seven years in a row!
