The Games are a fantastic sporting festival which does not get within easy reach very often – give yourselves and your family a treat and set your sights on being with us on the Gold Coast perhaps for Easter and the Games.
You don’t have to rent a car, but you will find it much easier to get around and yes, even to the competition venues as well as Theme Parks, beaches, National Parks, picnic grounds and all the other Gold Coast attractions.
If you do want to hire a rental car, you don’t have to get one from us, but we think that your enjoyment level will be enhanced by our service standards and wide range of vehicles and of course, your wallet will be a bit heavier when you get back home!
