Coolangatta Airport (OOL)

Eastern Ave, Bilinga QLD 4225, Australia

Coolangatta Airport (also known as Gold Coast Airport) is a domestic and international airport in south-east Queensland. The airport is a popular pick-up location for hire cars, with many travellers driving to Brisbane (62 miles/100km away) and Surfers Paradise (15.5 miles/25km away). Coolangatta is also a good starting-point for visits to New South Wales (in fact, the airport is actually on the border between the two states).

Each year, the airport serves around 5.5 million people — many of whom come to us to find a cheap car hire deal.

Finding a great deal

To bring you exclusive deals, we compare prices from a number of car hire companies at Coolangatta Airport (including big names like Hertz and Thrifty, as well as local brands like East Coast Rentals). We hope to bring you great prices on a range of car groups.

Before you decide who to rent with, take a look at the customer reviews by each deal on our search results page — and find out what our customers think of each company, before you make your mind up.

When booking your car, you can also request extras (such as a baby seat, a GPS or an additional driver).

Discover the great deals for yourself by searching today.

Choice of cars

Whether you want a car built for city driving, a luxury vehicle, an SUV or a spacious people carrier, there is a hire car to suit you and your needs. To make finding your perfect car even easier, use the filters on the left-hand side of the search results page to narrow the results down based on what you are looking for.

Some of the hire companies have their counters in the terminal itself, giving you the simplest possible start to your holiday.

Tips and advice

  • 1
    Coolangatta Airport lies next to the M1 Motorway, which can take you to Brisbane in the north and Ballina in the south. The A1 also provides easy access to Gold Coast.
  • 2
    If you are happy to take a shuttle bus or use a ‘meet & greet’ service to get to your car, renting with a company based away from the airport can be a great way of saving money.
  • 3
    To avoid any extra fuel charges, many people book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (just refill the tank just before the end of your rental and you won’t pay any extra fuel fees when you drop the car off). There are plenty of cars with this fuel policy at Coolangatta Airport.
  • 4
    Queensland is hottest between December and February, so make sure your hire car has air conditioning if you are travelling then.
  • 5
    When choosing your hire car, think about how much luggage space you will need and how much driving you want to do, as well as how many people will be travelling with you.
