Arriving Gold Coast Airport

Taxi cabs from the airport to the popular Gold Coast accommodation can be expected to cost you around $15-$20.

These include a shuttle service to the rental car area, where you can quickly pick up your car and head for the beach.

Driving In Gold Coast

The only traffic build-up is found at the entrance to the more popular beach spots, and you may have to prepare yourself for a short wait at these points.

Traffic congestion is not nearly as bad in other areas, and with long, open highways along the coast, you should have no problem driving in the region if you are a 1st time driver to Australia.
