Gold Coast Holidaymakers Urged to Book Car Rentals Early

Visitors planning a Gold Coast holiday during the 2018 Summer Holidays, and hoping to take daily excursions to enjoy the areas around it, might be cutting it close if they haven’t yet made a rental car booking, says the CEO of Gold Coast Family Car Rentals, Darryl Essington-Wilson. Unless they book quickly, chances increase every day that they might find themselves stuck in the city without wheels, or be forced to take expensive deals.

Prioritising Holiday Car Rentals in Gold Coast City

Darryl, who has been operating his value for money car rental business in Gold Coast city since 2001, says he’s seen many holidaymakers book their hotel rooms or other accommodation, buy tickets for events,  and spend hours planning day trips from the city. However, many forget the very important problem of how to get out and about without a car.

And, according to Darryl, this failure to prioritise could negatively affect the holiday, both in the availability of rental cars in high season and through failure to include in the planning some of the terms and conditions of the rental deal.  These include the permitted area of usage attached to the kilometre allowance, and that’s just one of the terms which could lead to changes being made to the planned itinerary for those working on a budget.

Don’t Leave Car Rental for the Last Minute

In a city like Gold Coast, which is currently experiencing a tourist boom, and a consequent  rise in demand for rental cars, those who leave booking their car rental too close to high season, may miss out on the chances of enjoying those outings or events completely, or end up having little choice regarding the rental car, or about paying a premium price for a rental.

“Finding the best value for money deal in car rentals is much the same as finding a good hotel,  comfortable bed and breakfast, or top class Airbnb. The later you make the bookings, the less choice you have of getting the best deal, and best service,” Darryl said.

And the Australian high season, which usually runs from mid-December to the end of January, is just about a month from kick off, so there’s not much time to delay any further when it comes to giving wheels to any planned excursions.

With Gold Coast tourism on the up and up, and events to attend, the right value-for-money car rental is going to become increasingly important. Find one to travel in the Gold Coast area, and particularly from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise, and including the Gold Coast Airport, by making sure to book online with Car Hire Gold Coast or Gold Coast Airport Car Rental, or call + 61 7 5508 3333. Pick up and drop off at the Gold Coast Airport can be arranged.
