Transportation on the Gold Coast
You are on our website, but you may not yet have decided to rent a car from us, or at all. So here is some information to help you make a decision.
The Gold Coast is about 80klms from south to north and 40klms from west to east, with points of interest spread all over the entire area.
Theme Parks? Theme Park central is about 35 klms away from the most popular holiday accommodation areas.
Natural Beauty? Gold Coast’s national parks are 25-40klms away from the most likely accommodation areas.
So, in addition to transport from your home to the Gold Coast, you will surely need a transport solution within the Gold Coast.
A 7-day Sky Bus Fun Pass costs $448 for 2 adults and 2 children from 4-16Years. It will get you from the Airport to your accommodation (or nearby), but only if you are staying north of Mermaid Beach. It will get you to your theme park choices and back every day and on the last day it will get you to the airport, but again, you must be staying at particular accommodation houses.
More than half our fleet of 100+ vehicles is priced at less than half of the price of a 7-day Sky Bus Fun Pass and only 9 of our vehicles will cost you more than the bus. You can go wherever you like within the Gold Coast at whatever time you choose in any of our cars.
Yes, you can get from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise (or vice versa) by bus, but you must either get a bus to the airport and change to the Route 777 Double Decker bus, (but you can’t get off until you get to Broadbeach), or you can get a bus from Coolangatta to Broadbeach and then get a tram to Surfer’s Paradise. User friendly? Not really!
For a family, it is easy to see that a rental car arrangement can be cheaper and far more convenient than public transport.
So, it’s a rental car for you, but why should you get it from us?
The home page of our website contains a guarantee that if you find a comparable rental car package cheaper than ours, we will refund you twice the difference, plus an additional $50. That’s $90 off our rental price if you come up with someone $20 cheaper than us!
A bonus is that we are recognised as having Australia’s most consumer-friendly rental terms and conditions.
Now we have sorted your transport options, let’s help you with the rest of your holiday.
