Friendly staffCar was old, 87,000kms, today but not clean on inside. Being off the airport base is annoying, having to wait for shuttles.

Clean Quick Pickup . But Like to upsell.Clean Quick pickup. Ended up upgrading car size at a slightly reduced cost due to limited bag space. Friendly staff.Supposed car was checked for typical problems. Only in first bit of rain found wiper blades were falling apart (Ticked as checked but obviously not). Thank god it did not rain much.

No deposit needed. Everything was ready to go on arrival.

One way rental charge which was meant to included. Confusion and delay at drop off which caused a one hour charge to be added
6.4 Good2016 Jul 28
Hidden feesNice clean car. No complaint there.I dropped off 30 minutes before my estimated drop off time. In my hundreds of car rental experiences I've never seen a 'early drop off fee' but when I got the bill I was charged $30 for being 30min early. Outrageous. As troubling is the fact that neither hertz nor hertz Australia have responded to my inquiries now 9 days after I emailed them. This is how you treat 'gold' customers?

Had to fill out a form at the desk, when I asked why, as I have never been asked to do this before, the employee told me that because I was a local, I was more likely to be dodgey. I told him I could easily go somewhere else, but He said he didn’t mean me, just locals. Bad choice if words for him.

The Staff at the service counter at Coolangatta airport were courteous, informative and helpful. I went to the hire car and the key wouldn't turn. I went back to the counter and the man (Alex?) was extremely helpful. He came out to the car with me and showed me that I need to turn the wheel to unlock the key (d'oh!) for it to turn. I thanked him and he assured me that it was no trouble. The car was absolutely spotless and drove beautifully and it went without a problem. The price of the hire was also pleasing to my bank balance. Not only would I highly recommend Budget Car Hire Coolangatta, I will definitely use them again. Five Stars

Car broke down on the M1 during peak traffic Luckily I was able to drift off and down off the Nerang off ramp Waited 1 hour for a tow truck then the fun started - the call taker told me a replacement car was not possible as Gold Coast office had closed -kept calling the call centre till I found a customer caring person who then managed to contact the Manager who authorised payment to the towing company to take the car and I to Brisbane Airport where a replacement car was waiting I lost 4hrs but thanks to the Manager they revived the situation A special thanks to the Manager who called me and kept me informed The desk informed me on returning the car that 1 days hire was being refunded Thank you Alamo for a great recovery effort

All good and smooth. Car in a good condition, friendly staff.Was forced into upgrade as arrived 1.5hrs early, but that was just $7 per day, so eventually it was for good.

Well I was waiting in the queue for more than 1.5 hour. I picked up the car key around 11:45. I asked if I can drop my car back around 1 pm. The answer was you have to pay one extra day due to pick up time is 10am you need to return your car at 10. Well first of all I haven’t picked up the car at that time. Second the approach was not polite at all.

Top tips for renting a car at Coolangatta Gold Coast Airport

  • Car hire at Coolangatta Gold Coast Airport is an efficient way to get going after landing, leaving more time for you to pack the most into your trip. Save on potentially expensive taxis or waiting on buses that finally arrive some distance away from exactly where you want to be. With endless beaches, national parks and theme parks to discover, renting a car gives you the freedom to enjoy your trip on your schedule.
  • When considering car hire at Coolangatta Gold Coast Airport you'll be pleased to know that many of the best-known companies can be found in the Arrivals Terminal. It is, therefore, easy to pre-book online and head straight to the desk or shop around in the terminal for last-minute deals. Pre-booking also means that the rental company can ensure that your vehicle is ready and waiting based on your flight arrival time.
  • When opting for Coolangatta Gold Coast Airport car hire be mindful that some companies are based a short drive away from the airport. In these cases, you can expect to be provided with a shuttle to collect you from the airport and take you to your car. For example, East Coast Car Rentals provide message prompts advising you to call ahead to book your free shuttle, allowing for prompt service and reduced waiting times.
  • Car hire at Coolangatta Gold Coast Airport is feasible all week long, with many companies operating the same opening hours during the weekend as they do during the week. Some rental companies close earlier in the evening, like Avis and Enterprise, whereas others, like Firefly and Thrifty, are open until 22:30. Therefore, it is still possible to rent a car later in the evening, although you can expect slightly less choice.
  • Book your rental car at Coolangatta Gold Coast Airport at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
