Comparing our Rental Car Deals with quotes from other Companies

We help you to check other companies to see if they can offer you a better deal than we offer. We guarantee to beat any offer that is comparable in rental terms and hire arrangements.

Comparing Car Rental Quotes

Everyone wants to know that they have got the best possible deal when they buy something online – hence the popularity of comparison sites. These work especially well for hotels, where you can get different prices for the same room at the same hotel from many different sources.

Why is this not the same as getting the same car from many different sources? With rental cars, each rental company equates to a different hotel, the service levels and charges are different and the terms and conditions of rental vary greatly -so the “room” (car) can’t be the same. 

There are dozens of comparison companies servicing the rental car market, but they don’t cover the entire market place. We do not appear on any of these comparison sites for two reasons:

(a)         We don’t have a minimum of 6 different locations (so we aren’t widespread enough for them).

(b)         We won’t pay them any commission.

Apart from not having us and other similar companies on their comparison lists, the major shortcoming of these services is that you are presented with an array of “prices” which don’t include any “optional extras” such as after-hours pick up or return, insurance excess reduction, extra drivers, child seats etc. When you make a selection of one of the offered vehicles you then become isolated from any comparative information in respect of all other rental companies.

The couple of dollars that you “saved” by picking the car that you did, might turn into a negative $100 or more because of major variances in the add-on prices and possibly thousands of dollars because of serious deficiencies in some rental companies' insurance cover.

How can you be sure that you have the best deal possible?

There’s only one way and that is to get full pricing details from all car rental companies in your chosen area, simultaneously – but that facility is not yet available.

In the meantime, here are our best suggestions:

  1. You can rely on our best value guarantee where we promise that if you find a comparable rental car package that is cheaper than ours, we will refund twice the difference, plus an additional $50. Yes, that’s right – if the other quote is $10 less than ours, we’ll give you $90.
  2. You can get our quote and then use the links on our Gold Coast Car Rental Companies links page to compare small cars; compare medium carscompare large cars and compare people movers quotes. 

We found 44 other car hire companies operating on the Gold Coast with about 70 different vehicle collection options. All of these companies are listed on our links page – you will quickly see for yourself whether our “bragging” is actually backed up. 

We have done the preliminary work for you, obtaining quotes for a 7 day non-peak period (1 May 2018 to 8 May 2018) in small; medium; large and people mover categories.

We specified the following search criteria:

  • Unlimited distance allowance within the Greater Gold Coast Area
  • One extra driver 
  • One Child Seat
  • GPS Navigation
  • Reduced Insurance Excess

We analysed the responses to create rankings with and without the Child Seat; GPS and Excess Reduction. 

The same car from different depots of the same company often has different pricing, so you might care to check more than one location for the same company if it suits your needs.

We think that after searching some of these companies, you will come back to us because you agree that we offer excellent value (or in very rare circumstances you may come back to us to claim your guarantee).
