Around and About the Gold Coast

Gold Coast Family Car Rentals is owned by Darryl & Denise Essington-Wilson and our middle son Grant. We completed our first 16 years of operation on 20th July 2017.

Grant is now in charge of rental operations and I (Darryl) am moving to embrace the "social media" and to develop new business opportunities.

In the coming weeks and months we will post articles which we hope will be of interest to people who are contemplating a holiday on the Gold Coast (whether they want a rental car or not) and to people who are contemplating renting a car (whether it be on the Gold Coast or not).

We invite comment and contributions for future blogs - I will be setting aside every Thursday to respond to comments and to consider contributions or requested topics.
