Top tips for renting a car at Maroochydore Sunshine Coast airport

  • If you get a car hire at Maroochydore Sunshine Coast Airport (MCY), you will automatically have more flexibility travelling to the centre of the city and other locations, compared to if you used public transport. This is because you can go directly to your location, without the potential need for transfers. For example, if you wanted to drive to Mountain Creek, then you could do so in about 13min. However, the same journey by bus not only takes about 1 hour, but you also need to transfer from the 620 bus to the 614 bus.
  • This airport has a selection of car hire companies, like SIXT, Enterprise and Hertz, which means it’s easy to find the perfect vehicle for your trip. If you hire a car with SIXT, they provide you with a phone number to call once you have cleared customs. You can then go out of the terminal and turn right and walk to the ‘Jetstar Arrivals’ sign, where you will only have to wait a short time before a courtesy shuttle bus will collect you and take you to the office to fill out your documentation.
  • When you need to drop off your car hire at Maroochydore Sunshine Coast Airport, you can do so with ease. Upon arrival at the airport, you need to keep an eye out for the correct turn, which will take you to the car hire agencies area. When you are on Runway Drive, which is close to the airport, you will see the East Coast Car Rentals office, where you can park your vehicle next to the respective agency. From here, you will get a free shuttle over to the airport.
  • Many of the car hire agencies at the airport provide comprehensive opening times, so you can pick up and drop off your vehicle at a time that suits you. For example, SIXT is generally open from 08:00 to 16:45 daily. If you need to return your car at a time when the offices are closed, you can normally do so by requesting this with your provider. For example, SIXT will ask you to park your car and drop the keys in the dropbox at the branch.
  • Book your rental car at Maroochydore Sunshine Coast airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Maroochydore Sunshine Coast airport

  • What documents must I provide for car hire at Sunshine Coast Airport?

    You need to be at least 21 years of age if you want to get a car hire from this airport. In addition, you’ll need to provide an up-to-date driver’s licence. For anyone who isn’t an Australian national, a passport is also required. Payment is accepted in the form of a credit card, which must be in the main driver’s name, or debit card, but you should know you will also have to pay a deposit for this payment method and some companies may not allow it.

  • Which driving rules do I need to know when in a car from Sunshine Coast Airport?

    You must abide by the rules of the road when you’re driving your Maroochydore Sunshine Coast Airport car hire. For example, passengers in the front and back of the car must wear seatbelts. Drivers can use phones, but they must be entirely hands free. The drink driving rules are very strict, and if you have more than a 0.05% blood alcohol content, you will be breaking the law. The speed limits in the country are also there for a reason, generally with motorways being at 110 km/h, rural areas being at 100 km/h and urban zones being at 50 km/h.

  • What green options are there for car hire from this airport?

    You can get an environmentally friendly car hire at Maroochydore Sunshine Coast Airport. Go for a hybrid, like a Toyota Camry from Avis, which is fuel efficient and emits less carbon compared to regular cars. Or choose a hybrid vehicle, like a Kia Picanto, which doesn’t use as much petrol and helps to enhance air quality.  

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Maroochydore Sunshine Coast airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Maroochydore Sunshine Coast airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Alpha, Avis, Bargain Car Rentals, Budget, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Europcar, Hertz, keddy by Europcar, and National.

Just drop off the car took me more than 45 minutes. There were 3 employees and three customers to hire a car. Even pickup took me 20 minutes. With Hertz drop off has always been less than 5 minutes. Simplify your pickup and drop off. All the customers on the day were shaking there heads with disbelief.

I was bitterly disappointed when I returned the vehicle in Brisbane after hiring it for 24 hours and suddenly got charged for 2 days instead of 1. I arrived on site and the lady at reception was very friendly and understanding when I mentioned I forgot to fill up with fuel (I’m not from here and it was very stressful with the amount of traffic in Brisbane). She suggested I go and fill up down the road while she took a photo of the key holder to check me in early. At most I was an hour late, which wasn’t even mentioned at drop off. Then I received the invoice via email for 2 day's hire? Come on, I am a return client and this is how we got treated? The guy that took over when I got back was rude and wasn’t willing to hear me out when I was explaining the above. Not happy at all
