Top Tips

  • Road trains (trucks hauling four or more containers) are common in Australia. Make sure you give them plenty of room when passing. They create displaced air which causes severe buffering.
  • They are very strict about drink driving in Coolangatta, and police regularly breathalyse drivers in the late evenings and at weekends
  • When renting a car, check with your rental company where you can take the vehicle. Some prohibit driving on unsealed (unpaved) roads, or don’t allow them to be driven past a predefined distance.

Some car hire companies have special offers on their cars, so you get an ‘extra’ (like an additional driver) included in the rental price. You will see which cars offers like this apply to once you search on our site. However, there is more to good value than freebies; you also want to be sure you’re renting with a trusted company. To help you make an informed decision, we show reviews and ratings submitted by previous customers next to each listing. We are impartial, and your rental experience matters to us.
