Gold Coast - a key holiday destination. From sparkling waters to crisp white beaches, this fun little piece of paradise is enough to tempt you to head to the nearest airport and fly over to the Goldie. Once you’ve arrived, you can start your holiday and explore what the region has to offer in the comfort of a rental car. Choose from our wide selection of vehicles with rates starting from $29* per day (standard rates). To make sure that you get the best possible rates, Alpha offers a Price Beat Guarantee.*
Apart from rental cars, we also offer other road trip essentials like baby boosters, child seats, and sat navs (GPS) for your convenience. No need to worry about the safety of small children while driving, or getting lost in a forest somewhere. With Alpha, your vacation is a breeze.
But when your destination is "Famous for FUN", you have to expect that getting there is going to be a bit tedious, as Coolangatta Airport is quite busy all year. Fret not because aside from providing quality car hire, our service comes with free airport transfers to and from the terminals. Once you're at our depot, all you need is fill up some forms, whip up your driver's licence, pay the cheap daily rental rates, get the keys for the car hire, and then drive away to your next adventure!
We value your comfort and convenience. As an Alpha customer, you get excellent service starting with FREE airport transfer to and from our depot via our shuttle service. No need to take a cab or ride share. We've got all of that covered.
On arrival into Gold Coast Airport, and once you have collected your luggage, please call us on 07 5586 6900, and we will dispatch our shuttle to collect you from the "Bus and Coach Pickup Area" (details below). The maximum wait should be 15 minutes. At busy times, we sometimes get held up delivering other customers, so please feel free to call again for the latest shuttle updates.
Arriving at Gold Coast Domestic
After calling us and collecting your luggage, please walk outside and head left toward International Arrivals. Walk past the Departures/International doors to the end of the terminal, and you’ll find the Transit Centre. Wait here and one of our bright purple Alpha Shuttle bus.
Gold Coast International Arrivals
Once you have cleared customs, called us and collected your luggage, please walk out the left-hand door of the terminal. There you will find the Transit Centre point where a bright purple Alpha Shuttle bus will be by shortly to collect you.
If you love both theme parks and the open water, you no longer have to choose one or the other with the Broadwater Adventure by Paradise Jet Boating. Picture this: you're on a gigantic jet boat with a group, and the driver revs up to insane speeds, thrilling turns, and 360°. Adrenaline is pumping and then you're welcomed to the gorgeous views of luxurious mansions, crystalline waters, and playful dolphins. As you swish and splash, your driver entertains you with colourful commentary and sassy jokes. It's heaps of fun, no matter what age.
Whether you're going with a partner, with the little ones, or a few good mates, Warner Bros Movie World has something for everyone. Join the Justice League for an epic battle with Starro, face Joker and rocket through the Arkham Asylum, head up with Scooby and the gang and avoid the ghosties, or have the little ones join Bugs, Tweety, Daffy, and the rest of the Looney Tunes Gang at the Fun Zone. From thrill rides to family friendly fun, you can literally spend a whole day discovering different worlds in this theme park.
Take the leap and soar with the Gold Coast Skydive - the only tandem skydive operation in Gold Coast. Whether you're a first timer or a seasoned parachuter, your tandem instructor will still give you the same personalised service, calming your fears or pumping you up for an incredible jump. Either way, you get to pump the adrenaline as you get a bird's eye view of the gorgeous scenes of Gold Coast.
In a place that's "Famous for FUN", a day trip just isn't going to cut it. There's a party at every corner on almost any time of the day so you're going to want to scour every nook and cranny of the Goldie. Whether you're a family on a budget, a solo backpacker looking for a simple bed space, a couple looking for a romantic getaway, or even a 5 star traveller looking for the poshest hotels; you're sure to find a place to stay in Gold Coast.
