The Europcar car hire experience at Gold Coast Airport

Whether it’s just you or a car full of family or friends; a small bag or a mountain of luggage, we’ve got the car to suit! If you’re planning on staying local for just a few days, a smaller car like the Kia Rio is a budget option. For longer journeys to Melbourne in the south, or more people, you’ll want something roomier such as the Kia Serato or the 8-seater Kia Carnival. And if you need to transport your surfboard or camping gear you can hire a van or ute.

We offer a friendly, flexible service with daily, weekly, and monthly car rental options covering both short and long-term car hire needs. Our three-step booking process is hassle-free and when you arrive at our station, our highly trained staff will get you on the road as quickly as possible.

If a one-way trip suits you better, you can drop off your hire car at another Europcar station when you reach your destination. It all adds up to a great deal!

Discover the Gold Coast and surroundings by car

Gold Coast is a modern bustling city with a party atmosphere and holiday vibe that caters to tourists and visitors alike. You can soak up the nightlife, enjoy the beautiful beaches and admire the many sights. But there’s so much more to the Gold Coast and your rental car is the ideal way to explore the wider area.

If you’ve got kids to entertain – or if you’re just a big kid at heart - Sea World, Dreamworld and Warner Bros Movie World are all within a half hour drive of Gold Coast and offer endless attractions and rides for all the family.

To keep cool in the summer heat, take a trip to the beach and learn to surf at one of the many surf schools in the area, including at Palm Beach and Currumbin. If you’d prefer a more relaxing beach day head for Tallebudgera Creek. This hidden gem is a locals’ favourite and offers a golden sandy beach and sparkling blue calm water.

Gold Coast offers plenty of sporting activities for all ages. From wake boarding to sky diving and ice skating to go-karting or mountain biking,

A trip to Gold Coast isn´t complete without a visit to one of the local wildlife sanctuaries to get close to Australia’s native kangaroos, koalas and colourful tropical birds. Try Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary or David Fleay Wildlife Park for a great family day out.

Make the most of your hire car and explore the towns and cities on the outskirts of Gold Coast. Drive north and you’ll reach Queensland’s capital Brisbane, where you can take a leisurely river cruise along the Brisbane River, visit one of the many art exhibitions and dine on fresh seafood. Take the opposite direction south and you’ll arrive at Byron Bay in just over an hour. This traditional beachside town is great for surfing, scuba diving and days at the beach, and during June and November you may spot whales from one of the viewpoints.

For a day away from the busy city a visit to Toomwoomba, also known as the Garden City, is a must if you’re a plant lover. This charming city is home to hundreds of gardens and parks to wander around and enjoy the spectacular floral displays. One of the best times to visit is September, the beginning of spring, when the city celebrates the Carnival of Flowers.

Around an hour’s drive from Gold Coast is the World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park, with stunning scenery, waterfalls, and dramatic cliffs and gorges. If you’re ok with heights, a great way to explore the park is on the O'Reilly's Tree Top Walk, a 180-metre series of suspension bridges in the rainforest canopy! To relax after your adventure, head to O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat for food, spa treatments and maybe even a romantic overnight stay!
