Do I need a hire car on the Gold Coast?

Do I need a hire car on the Gold Coast? - Gold Coast

So you are planning a family holiday to the Gold Coast – Surfers Paradise to be exact.


What a list of things there are for you to do! There are the obvious tourist attractions such as SeaWorld, MovieWorld, Wet n Wild, Dreamworld, and the theme parks are always easy to get to on public transport. However, if you want to have the freedom to visit some of our amazing attractions that are slightly off the beaten track, you will need a rental car!.


While public transport is good, and our new trams (known by locals as ‘The G’) are operational and easy to use, you are limited to the transport timetable and once you are onboard you are stuck till your destination. If you see something out the side window that is of interest – you have no hope of getting up close and personal as your transport has just zapped passed it!


Enter Surfers Rent A Car, we have deals and packages that ensure you the very best value for your money – leaving you more disposable income for all the important holiday activities.


Here are a couple of ideas for tourist attractions that are outside the normal beach, themepark and shopping centre must-do’s:


Why not add the Tamborine Mountain Rainforest Skywalk to your itinerary? Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk is a flat, easy, one and a half kilometre rainforest walking experience that the whole family will enjoy.


OR – check out the fantastic natural wonder of The Springbrook National Park’s picturesque Natural Bridge, which is an amazing rock formation that has been formed by the force of the waterfall over an erosive basalt cave. You will enjoy the short one kilometre subtropical circuit and descend through ancient Gondwana rainforest to the Natural Bridge rock arch. With the option of a day walk that showcases the pristine beauty of the lush rainforest and may allow you to spot a few of our feathered and furry locals, or a guided nocturnal tour to see the resident colony of protected glow-worms and microbats. The whole experience takes approximately 45 minutes at a leisurely pace and begins and ends at the main centre. The main centre includes, the Eco Centre, bus parking, gift shop, cafe and toilets.



To make sure that you can get afford to get out and about when you are visiting the Gold Coast, at Surfers Rent A Car not only is our car hire inexpensive it comes with discounts and benefits you will appreciate. Our good range of quality, maintained vehicles will spoil you for choice. Just the two of you?  we can put you into a 2 door hatchback. A family of 2 adults and 6 kids – also no problem, we cater for the larger family and their luggage with our 8 seat people movers.


Frankly – we are the car rental company that keep on giving! – cheap rates, great cars, good service.  Our insurance excess is also at an unbelievably low price of just $750. This is so low that we do not need to offer you an ‘Excess Reduction Waiver” – again, saving your holiday funds for the fun stuff.


We also offer, for your convenience, a one-way rental service between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, or vice versa (subject to vehicle availability).


It’s all about a no stress vacation and one thing we can do to assist with this is supply you with the best, prompt and reliable customer service and car. We have convenient pickup locations on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane.
