The BEST value hire company in Southeast Queensland

A quick guide to the Gold Coast

Introduction to the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is an incredibly popular destination for holiday makers and tourists from not just around Queensland, but throughout Australia and internationally.

There are a host of different reasons and attractions pulling people to visit our pocket of paradise and with extensive hire car Gold Coast options, including Andy’s Auto Rentals, finding your way around and from one fun activity to the next is easy!

Put simply, the GC simply needs to be on your must-see list of holiday destinations!

Car hire on the Gold Coast

From the beautiful beaches to the entertaining theme parks, there is so much to do and see on the Gold Coast. Getting around requires affordable and reliable car hire however.

The robust highway and road infrastructure means that having your own car is not just the most convenient and hassle-free way to get around but a necessity. If you’re flying into Brisbane, it’s not hard to pick up a hire vehicle from Andy’s Auto Rentals at Brisbane airport and make the hour or so drive to the Gold Coast.

If you’re arriving directly at the airport on the Gold Coast, it’s equally convenient to pick up a vehicle from our local airport office on the ground. Plus, with our free pick up and delivery options to certain suburbs, you might even qualify for complimentary no-cost car delivery.

Why visit the Gold Coast?

If you’ve never been to the Gold Coast before you’d be forgiven for asking this question. Anyone who has been knows that this beautiful part of our gorgeous state in our stunning country has plenty to offer everyone and anyone.

From solo travellers, to holidaying couples and families on vacations, there’s so much to do and so much to see. It’s no wonder visitors come back again and again. Of course, by making sure you hire a car you’ll be best prepared for taking full advantage of the many attractions the Gold Coast has to offer.


No matter what size family you are or what sort of budget you’re travelling on, there’s plenty of lovely accommodation to suit you. Even if you don’t manage to find accommodation in your preferred spot–it does get pretty packed during peak season–you’ll still be able to get what you need to go in your affordable rental car.

Surf, sun, swim and sand

From Surfers Paradise to Broadbeach, we’re simply spoilt for options for stunning beaches. If you’re looking for a holiday filled with surfing, swimming, water sports and sunbathing, our warm weather and picturesque coastline is beckoning you! We’re not called the Sunshine State for nothing after all.

Night life

Once you’ve spent the day on the beach, you may be ready to join the nocturnal parties. The nightlife on the Gold Coast is not just vibrant and pumping but there’s a variety of nightclubs and restaurants, so you’re bound to find the perfect establishment to suit your tastes. Make sure of course that you travel safely when having a night out and never drink or drive, hire cars included.

Adrenaline activities

If you and/or the kids have some pent up energy or are just looking for an adrenaline rush, the Gold Coast has a ton of options. There are various treetop challenges across our sanctuaries and national parks, wake parks, Go Karting, laser tag centres, sky diving and even watersports, including water jet packs.

Indulgent retreats

There’s not just plenty of attractions for the active amongst you. With numerous rejuvenation retreats and wellness spas, plus world class golf courses for the golf-obsessed, there’s no better place to unwind and re-energise than the Gold Coast.


Do you need a ‘treat yourself’ kind of holiday? The extensive choice of shopping outlets also has something for everyone. High end luxury brands, beachfront Surfers Paradise market stalls… You’ll drop before you get to the end of your shop! Of course, a reliable hire car will help you get from A to B as quickly and hassle-free as possible.

Art and culture

There’s always a ton of cultural and artistic activity on the Gold Coast. Festivals, events, gigs, galleries, the list never ends! If you like to immerse yourself in the local and visiting talent there’s plenty of opportunity to indulge in a range of activities.

Wildlife experiences

For those tourists into nature and wildlife, the Gold Coast has treats galore in store for you! Swim alongside turtles off Cook Island, visit the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, surf amongst dolphins, or go bird or whale watching. Plus, there are plenty of stunning, natural areas to explore like Tambourine Mountain, Burleigh Heads and Lamington National Park.

Theme parks

You might think that theme parks are just for kids. Whilst there’s no doubt that the various entertainment parks like Dreamworld, Warner Bros Movie World, Wet N Wild and Sea World are the stuff of children’s fantasies, there’s a lot for adults to enjoy too. Plus, don’t forget about Topgolf and King Tutts Putt Putt as well!

Organising your Gold Coast holiday

We want you to spend the maximum amount of time possible putting together an action packed, fun itinerary of places to go and things to do. That’s why we want to make arranging a hire car on the Gold Coast as stress free as possible.
