Gold Coast Accommodation

Gold Coast Car Hire

Hiring a car is one of the best ways to really explore your holiday destination and experience the location like a local. Discovering the landscape and attractions at your own leisure, you can enjoy plenty of time to explore and uncover some hidden gems along the way. The Gold Coast and its nearby coastal drives and hinterland is the ideal destination to drive and local car hire options are both easy and affordable.

There are a wide range of Gold Coast car hire options available, most of which are major operators who are located in the arrivals section of the Gold Coast Airport in Coolangatta. There are also a number of transfer services that are available from the airport and will deliver you to your accommodation or a central location near car hire kiosks.

Gold Coast car hire vehicles are generally less than 8 months old and range from large luxury cars all the way through to small model cars. All vehicles feature air conditioning and most operate on automatic transmission. In order to hire a car on the Gold Coast, drivers need to be a least 21 years of age. Although drivers will need to have a current driver's license issued by their country of residence, it is not necessary to have an international driver's license.

Drivers and passengers must wear a seat belt at all times with children properly restrained in an approved restraint, which can also be hired along with your vehicle. Speed limits are signposted and expressed in kilometres per hour. Speeding is a serious offence and is heavily policed, along with drink driving. The legal blood alcohol limit in Australia is 0.05. Drivers detected over the legal limit will void their rental insurance.
