COVID-19 Pandemic & This Website
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.
Travel Information for Queensland Visitors - Queensland Tourist Safety Information - regularly updated, official website.
Thank you for your understanding and patience at this really difficult time.

Gold Coast Airport Transfers
Car hirers near Coolangatta Airport tend to cater for similar market but more budget minded. The cars are usually a older and of variable quality.
Pre-arranged transfers mean you can sit back, relax and enjoy the journey without battling traffic and directions!
Start your vacation on the right foot!
If you don't have the luxury of having a friend to pick you up, it is well worth organizing your Gold Coast Airport transfers before landing in the Gold Coast.
Limos are a great way to arrive in style!
They are actually quite practical if you have a large family. Certainly worth considering. If you need to be taken to a special event or fomal occassion around the Gold Coast they are the ONLY way to arrive!.
For ultimate luxury use a service such as United Chauffeured Limousines for your limo in the Gold Coast for Gold Coast Airport pick ups and theme park transfers. They are a family owned business and can cater for your family's requirements. Make sure you book ahead, as you don't want to get caught short!
This is the next option down from a limo and above a taxi. A chauffeur will do a meet and greet at the airport and take you to your accommodation. There are options for sedans or people movers depending upon what you need.
There are several options for chauffeured limos including companies like United Chauffeured Limousine offering both limousines and sedans for pick ups. Another option is BCT Transfers who offer a door to door service for airport and other transfers for up to 6 people. Sporting equipment can be carried on roof racks or in a trailer - several options available - just ask.
Both will meet and greet at the airport, then drive you direct to your accommodation can be quite a delight after a long trip.
If you are travelling in a much larger group and need a charter bus then Gold Coast Coaches could be for you. They are Gold Coast Limos sister company. They offer various transport options up to 64 seater coaches and specialise in larger groups.
Con-X-ion is a popular choice for both Airport and theme park transfers. They offer transfers to the main tourist areas of the the Gold Coast and they have a package for transfers to and from the airport and the various Gold Coast attractions called the Roo Pass. The Roo Pass is a great way of wrapping up your Gold Coast theme park, attractions, shopping and airport transfers.
Prices depend upon destination. Discounts for children, pensioners and family option (check the T's & C's).
Buying your tickets online should save you too and it will be all organised so you can relax.
If you have a large family or lots of luggage you might be better to go for the door to door service of a chauffeur driven people mover.Gold Coast HeliTours are a local service that offer charters, transfers and lots of options.
Taxis on the Gold Coast usually have what is called CabCharge. That means you can use your credit card to pay for the taxi, but you will pay a surcharge for that convenience.
At peak times you may have to wait for a taxi. Put this number in your phone 131 008. If you call it on the Gold Coast it will direct you to the booking centre for all taxis on the Gold Coast. If you call it elsewhere, you will get another local cab company so quite a useful number.
