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 as low as $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!

Quick Tips

Time

  • Gold Coast follows Eastern Standard Time (EST - GMT +10); which means that Goldy does not follow daylight savings time.

Goldy Essentials

  • Remember that it's summer almost all year round in the region. Bring loads of sunscreen and slap some on every few hours. If you forget to bring sunscreen, aloe vera helps soothe sunburns. Don't be fooled by overcast days, the sun will still burn you.
  • Bring a tube of lip balm with SPF. This way you get to protect your lips from harsh UV rays, and keep them from getting chapped.
  • Insect or mosquito repellant is a must if you're going camping.
  • Lightweight clothing should be your staple, even during the winter. If you're the type who easily gets chilly, a jacket on top of lightweight clothing will suffice.
