Pros: Friendly staffCons: Car was old, 87,000kms, today but not clean on inside. Being off the airport base is annoying, having to wait for shuttles.
8.8 Excellent15 Dec. 2018
Clean Quick Pickup . But Like to upsell.Pros: Clean Quick pickup. Ended up upgrading car size at a slightly reduced cost due to limited bag space. Friendly staff.Cons: Supposed car was checked for typical problems. Only in first bit of rain found wiper blades were falling apart (Ticked as checked but obviously not). Thank god it did not rain much.

4.4 Okay30 Jun. 2017
Cons: One way rental charge which was meant to included. Confusion and delay at drop off which caused a one hour charge to be added
6.4 Good28 Jul. 2016
Hidden feesPros: Nice clean car. No complaint there.Cons: I dropped off 30 minutes before my estimated drop off time. In my hundreds of car rental experiences I've never seen a 'early drop off fee' but when I got the bill I was charged $30 for being 30min early. Outrageous. As troubling is the fact that neither hertz nor hertz Australia have responded to my inquiries now 9 days after I emailed them. This is how you treat 'gold' customers?

When to book a car hire in Coolangatta

Top tips for hiring a car in Coolangatta

  • The Gold Coast spans from Coolangatta on the New South Wales border to Beenleigh, just south of Brisbane, with a hire car offering unparalleled access to the stretch of sandy beaches. Hiring a car on the Gold Coast makes trips to the beach simpler, with the ability to easily transport your items rather than carry them on the bus or light rail. In addition to easily visiting theme parks such as Movie World and Wet’n’Wild, having your own vehicle opens up access to inland rainforests, like Springbrook National Park and Tamborine National Park, which are difficult to reach by public transport.
  • Reception desks for car hire companies are located directly across the hallway from Domestic Arrivals and the Qantas Club at Gold Coast Airport. With hire cars from major operators including Avis, Hertz, Budget and Thrifty within walking distance of the terminal, you can be on the road shortly after landing.
  • Thanks to its warm and sunny climate, the Gold Coast is a popular destination for cyclists. Remain attentive while driving on city and rural roads, maintaining a safe distance of at least 1.5 m when passing cyclists. Also, be aware that a light rail system passes through the middle of Surfers Paradise and it’s important not to queue or perform U-turns over the tram tracks. If you are travelling up to Brisbane via the Gateway Motorway, ensure your hire agreement includes toll access.
  • Peak hour traffic on the Gold Coast is not nearly as bad as some other major cities across Australia; however, it’s best to avoid driving between 07:00–09:00 and 16:30–18:00. High St in central Southport is one of the most affected arterials, with the strip from North St to Queen St being especially congested.
