Tourists Need Reliable Transport to Enjoy Their Gold Coast Holiday The Gold Coast is an international tourist destination that boasts beautiful surf beaches that hug the edge of the Pacific Ocean, luxury accommodation, hundreds of attractions, glittering night life and fabulous food. Running parallel with the beaches and only a kilometre or so inland is a maze of tidal canals, sparkling in the sunshine and home to thousands of stunning homes, hotels and apartment buildings. The tourist has literally thousands of accommodation choices, starting in the north at Labrador and ending at Coolangatta. The area is a long, narrow mega-city created when a dozen small holiday hamlets began to grow and converge fifty years ago. Although these individual settlements are still recognisable by names like Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads, Currumbin and Kirra, in the present day the built-up area stretches uninterrupted for 42 kilometres. This can make it difficult for tourists to get quickly from one end of the Gold Coast to the other, and to get to scheduled activities in time for the various shows. Public Transport Inconvenient Option for Tourists While there is public transport in the form of buses and rail, the rail line from Brisbane stops at Robina which is another centre further inland from the beaches. With most tourists wanting to spend much of their time close to the surfing beaches, the rail system for them is inconvenient. The best option to get around quickly is to organise a car hire Gold Coast. With a good GPS in the hire car, a tourism information folder or these days, an iPad or tablet and the Hello Gold Coast app, a tourist from anywhere in the world can find their way to any event or attraction that takes their fancy. Hire car companies cater for differing tastes and needs in their fleet vehicles. Most of them have small, economical cars that can zip in and out of busy areas with ease. They also have larger family sedans and for a group of travellers, the most convenient option is an 8 seater people mover. No Need to Park Hire Cars in the Street at Night
Holiday accommodation at the Gold Coast usually caters for at least one parking space per dwelling. The hire car can be safely parked at the end of an exhausting day of fun without it having to be out in the street. The car will be nice and handy in the morning when, refreshed and ready for the next round of sun, surf and Sea World, the tourists climb aboard. Having a hire car is a very convenient way of getting beach towels, beach umbrellas and other paraphernalia from the accommodation to the beach of choice for any particular day. There are so many of them that just swimming at one would be boring, but carrying all that stuff to get there is just hard work. Holidaying with a hire car gives tourists the maximum time to experience everything without wasting time waiting for public transport. If you want to know more about our services then Click here.
