Why rent a car in Gold Coast with Rentalcars.com?

We take the stress out of hiring a car on the Gold Coast, so you can relax and look forward to your trip. In one simple search, we compare prices across a great choice of cars (including spacious family cars and luxury vehicles), from brands like Hertz, Redspot and Europcar. Many of the deals on our site are exclusive to us, because we negotiate with suppliers directly to secure fantastic prices. To make finding your ideal hire car even easier, you can filter the search results based on your needs and preferences.

Top Tips

  • Surfers Paradise (the Gold Coast’s main beach) can get very busy at the best of times, and parking there can be an issue. Taking public transport is advisable.
  • There is plenty of on-street and multi-storey parking in the Gold Coast area.
  • Roads are well signposted, but if you are going to explore the area extensively then requesting a GPS is recommended.

Which companies offer best value in Gold Coast?

If you want to split the driving with someone else, look out for special offers which include additional drivers in the rental price. Thrifty and Bargain Car Rentals are just two of the brands that often have offers like this on their cars. However, we are impartial, and we want you to make an informed choice when you are deciding who to rent with. To assist your decision, we show ratings and reviews from previous customers next to each listing. Their feedback will show you how each company compares in terms of overall satisfaction and value for money.

Day trips from Gold Coast

Dreamworld: Dreamworld is Australia’s biggest theme park. Around 30 kilometres from the Gold Coast, this entertainment centre has something to offer all the family — from the ABC Kids World featuring child-friendly rides, to adrenaline-pumping rollercoasters. If rides aren’t your thing, you can visit Tiger Island, surf on the FlowRider or discover Aboriginal culture in the Dreamworld Corroboree.

Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets: Surfers Paradise is one of the Gold Coast’s most famous beaches. Every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday from 3pm-8pm, a night market takes place. Live entertainers and more than 100 stalls line the foreshore, offering food, fashion, jewellery, artwork, homewares and more. A visit to the markets is the perfect way to round off the day.

Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk: Just under an hour’s drive from the Gold Coast is the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk. The 1.5km walk takes you through the upper canopy, and a cantilever bridge soars 30 metres above the glistening rock pools and rainforest bush. You can also enjoy the Rainforest Eco Gallery and the Birdwing café.
