Top tips for hiring a car in Surfers Paradise

  • Hiring a car in Surfers Paradise allows you to cruise along the coastline and make the most of the sunny weather as well as head inland to theme parks and rainforests. Taxi fares can build up quickly and waiting for public transport is the last thing you’ll want to do when the beach is calling. Driving to Wet’n’Wild and Warner Bros. Movie World takes roughly 20min while a connection of buses requires closer to 1h 30min. A hire car also provides the option of bringing all your towels, snacks and clothes without the hassle of carrying them around. Surfers Paradise is approximately 30 km from Gold Coast Airport (OOL) and having a hire car will help avoid a costly taxi fare or 1h 30min bus journey.
  • Car hire companies are situated next to the taxi rank in the Domestic Arrivals area of Gold Coast Airport. If you are arriving on an international flight, turn right after customs and you will see the reception desks next to the Qantas Club. The vehicle pick-up area is less than a 5min walk from the hire company offices.
  • The centre of Surfers Paradise is heavily populated and you’ll have to keep a keen eye out for pedestrians at all times. There is also a light rail system that passes through, from Broadbeach and Southport. Don’t block the path of trams and always check both directions before crossing the tracks. Many international tourists visit Surfers Paradise and you’ll likely share the roads with drivers who are unfamiliar with the area, take caution and reduce speed to avoid collisions.
  • While traffic peaks between 07:30–09:00 and 16:30–18:00 on weekdays in Surfers Paradise, the congestion isn’t nearly as bad as other major cities across Australia. You should allow an additional 20min window to reach your destination during this period and bypass the Gold Coast Hwy if possible. Bundall Rd also experiences heightened traffic on the weekend, though the 6-lane road can accommodate the rushes quite well.
