How do I pick up a rental car at Gold Coast Airport?

You’ll find a selection of the best-known car rental companies located opposite the arrivals area at Gold Coast Airport. See below for clear instructions on how to find Gold Coast Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car in each terminal.

Gold Coast Airport terminal

  • Gold Coast Airport Terminal

    Gold Coast Airport has one terminal known as Terminal 1. Domestic arrivals is located on the left side of the terminal and international arrivals are on the right — the flight check-in desks are in between.

Pick up instructions

  • Is your rental company desk on-airport or off-airport?

    Gold Coast Airport Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire car desks are located within the main arrivals terminal, near the baggage carousels. Your rental company will direct you to the correct location to collect your car. Directions
    Off airport
    If you booked with an off-airport provider, you’ll need to catch a shuttle to the car rental provider’s premises near the airport. Directions
  • Finalise your rental agreement and collect keys

    Once you are at the hire car company desk, you’ll need to finalise your rental agreement and collect your vehicle keys.
  • Head to the designated car park to pick up your car

    Gold Coast Airport Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire cars are parked on site and within walking distance of the terminal building. This makes it easy to collect your hire car from Gold Coast Airport. Directions
    Off airport
    Shuttle bus to hire car depot. Directions
  • What should I do if the desk is unattended?

    Hopefully the car rental company has left a sign with instructions or a contact number. In this situation, use the number they have provided and let them know that you have arrived or follow the directions out to the car park where a rental attendant will help you.

    If there is no sign, check your booking confirmation email for a contact phone number.

    If you still have no luck with making contact, call us at 1300 722 920 and consider heading to the parking area and look for uniformed staff. Don’t be alarmed. It’s not unusual to see unmanned rental desks, but rest assured there’s usually help out in the car park where the rentals are located.

    We'll be right back

Returning a hire car at Gold Coast Airport

  • On-airport

    To return your hire car, follow the signs for the Rental Returns car park, located on the right-hand side of Terminal Drive.

    For after-hours returns, there is a return slot where you can drop off the key. Park and lock your car then place the keys in the drop box located in the car hire returns area.

  • Off-airport

    With off-airport returns a shuttle service is provided for moving between the depot and the airport.

    For Bargain Car Rentals you will need to return the vehicle to their off-site depot located at 2/57 Ourimbah Road, Tweed Heads. There is a shuttle service back to the airport terminal, though please note it is only available within business hours and 20 minutes prior to closing. Please allow sufficient time (approximately 20 min) for the shuttle to arrive.
