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 Goldie. However, 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 one of the busiest airports in Australia.

Worry not because with a car hire in Gold Coast Airport from Alpha, you can get out of the airport as soon as you land. You'll get the convenience of being picked up by our shuttle to get to our depot at Ourimbah Road.

Quick Tips in Gold Coast

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

Goldy Essentials

  • Remember that it's summer almost all year round in Gold Coast. 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, they 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 Mozzie 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.


There's so much to see and even more to do in Gold Coast. With all the fun-filled activities available in Goldy, you'd want to save as much as you can on things like transportation. You can do that by booking a cheap car hire in Gold Coast from Alpha today!
