Important information about Surfers Paradise car hire

How can I get from Gold Coast Airport (OOL) to the hire car centre?

If you're flying to Surfers Paradise, a nearby major airport is Gold Coast Airport (OOL), around half an hour from Surfers Paradise by car. If you're landing in the Domestic Arrivals area, you can find the car hire desks next to the taxi rank in the arrivals area. If you arrive at the International Arrivals area, follow the signs to the right after customs. The desks are located next door to a Qantas Club. From either terminal, the car park is just a short walk away. If you're planning on picking up your hire car in Surfers Paradise instead, you can take ground transport from the airport. The Route 777 bus runs frequently from the morning until the evening and arrives at Broadbeach South tram station. From here, you can transfer onto a G:link tram to Surfers Paradise. Taxis are located just outside the Domestic Arrivals area, on the south side of the terminal. 13Cabs and Black & White Cabs are available and both can be booked ahead of time online.

What documentation do I need to hire a car in Surfers Paradise?

Your driver's licence will usually be all the ID you need, but international travellers should be prepared to show their passports. In some cases, domestic travellers may be asked to show additional ID, such as a passport or Medicare card. Drivers usually need to be at least 21 years old, and they need to have held a driver's licence for at least one year. Most Surfers Paradise car hire companies will also allow you to add additional drivers for an extra fee. Additional drivers must also be present at pick-up to present their driver's licence. You'll also need to present a debit card or a credit card. Debit cards must be Mastercard or Visa and some companies will ask for a higher security deposit. The card must also match the name on the main driver's licence. A loss-damage waiver and third-party insurance should be included in the cost of your booking.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Surfers Paradise?

If you aren't used to sharing roads with light rail networks, there are a few things to bear in mind when driving your hire car in Surfers Paradise. Surfers Paradise's G:link trams run from the early morning until midnight on weekdays and all day on weekends. Visitors should be aware that you are never allowed to stop on tram tracks and you can only drive on tram tracks when you are driving over them at intersections. If you're visiting with young children, make sure you follow Queensland's guidelines regarding child restraints and booster seats. Children under four must be in a child restraint and children under seven must use either a child restraint or a booster seat. Children older than seven must use a booster until they are tall enough to use a normal seatbelt. While you can bring your own seat, it must meet Australian/New Zealand standards, so if you're visiting from overseas, it may be easier to get one from your hire agency.

Can I drive to other states, regions or countries with a hire car from Surfers Paradise?

When hiring a car in Surfers Paradise, ask your car hire company about their restrictions. Most will allow you to take your car across state lines. Occasionally, you may only be able to take your car into certain states. Additionally, many companies restrict you from driving on unsealed roads, though there may be exceptions. For example, Hertz does not allow you to drive on unsealed roads unless they are undergoing repair or are considered access roads to recognised camping areas. In addition to general restrictions, each state often has specific areas that are restricted. In Queensland, this includes the Boggy Hole Billabong route in Finke Gorge National Park and the Old Telegraph Track on the road to Cape York. You will often need to get additional insurance if you plan on taking your vehicle onto a car ferry.
