Car Hire Gold Coast Airport

It doesn’t matter if you arrived to the Gold Coast Airport traveling from Sydney, Seoul, Tokyo or Bangalore; you’re in for a comfy transit and class customer service. The history of the airport dates way back to the 1930s. Following a long line of changes, including a name change (that’s right, the airport was called the Coolangatta Airport until 1998), the Gold Coast Airport is one of the fastest expanding airports in Australia. The runway has been recently extended up to 2.5 km, allowing all commercial aircraft models to land or take off from it, except the Airbus A380, which needs a 3 km long runway.

Due to its location, bordering two cities (Queensland and New South Wales), both with different time zones during summer, booking a flight might get a bit tedious. In case of doubt, you should know that on the Gold Coast Airport the time zone is always the same as the city of Gold Coast. One of the most important things you should know about the airport is that public hours of operation are from 4:30 AM until the last flight arrival has been cleared (usually until 11 PM). No passengers are allowed inside the terminal outside these hours.

There are two lounges you can use while waiting for your flight. There is a luxurious business class lounge available for travelers with a Virgin Australia or Air New Zealand Gold or Platinum membership. A second lounge, fully equipped for making your waiting enjoyable in every aspect. The duty free stores as well as the food courts have a wide range of offers, you really should stop by to pick up some things Free WI-FI is available anywhere inside the airport.

The No.1 places of interest here are the sunny beaches: in Beach and Surfer’s Paradise, the latter, situated at only 30 km away from the airport, where over 10 million people spent their vacation in the past year.

If you’re lacking time, or simply want to visit the surroundings fast, you could go with the Gold Coast Airport Full Day tours, which provide a quite large range of one day tours like Mountain Trek, Southern Cross 4WD or Whale Watching. For even lesser spent time, you get the half a day tours like the Bluewater Cruises or the Snorkel Safari.

Car Rental services are offered by nearly all the major international car renting companies, including also some of the local ones. Prices per day for a rental car go between US $45 for a Hyundai Getz and US $120 for a Mitsubishi Outlander. Booking online will get you a car you’re comfortable with and save you a lot of time and money.

Keep in mind; you’re in a former British colony so you will need to drive on the left of the road. Also, plan your trip carefully; Australia has a beautiful yet vast and uninhabited landscapes. You could drive for hours and still not find a gas station.
