JUCY cars at Gold Coast Airport

People don’t only love our Gold Coast branch because it’s minutes from the airport. It’s also that we’re just a block from the beach! It’s a little teaser for your GC adventures to come.  

Get a warm JUCY welcome when you collect your hire car. Our crew is as travel-mad as you are and not only works efficiently to get you on the road, but also has a ton of travel advice to share before you depart 

While you leave us physically, we’re still coming along for the ride figuratively. It’s non-creepy, we promise! How? We offer support with 24/7 roadside assistance and free travel advice, too! Plus, we don’t hold you back by counting kilometres. No matter the vehicle you rent, you receive unlimited mileage! For free! 

Book online or call us on 1800 150 850.

We’re so excited to meet you that we offer a free airport shuttle so we can start getting to know you early! It may only be a few minutes from the Gold Coast Airport – but we’ll take it. We love hearing about your road trip plans.  

To book your shuttle in, follow these steps: 

  • Once you’ve cleared customs and grabbed your bags, give us a call on 1800 150 850. Press option 1, then 3 to book your shuttle seat.  
  • Head outside to the signposted shuttle waiting area. You’ll probably spot our bright green and purple shuttle bus coming in the distance. You can’t miss it! 
  • We offer a shuttle during our branch opening hours. The last pick-up for car check-ins is 30 minutes before closing time.
  • Not coming to us from the airport? You’ll need to make your own way, but it’s an easy ride with the Skybus (the cheapest option) or in an Uber for approximately $40-50 from the Gold Coast. From Byron Bay, expect to pay around $100 if you don’t fancy the Skybus.

On a scale of 1 to I’m-leaping-in-the-air, how excited are you about your upcoming Gold Coast travels? We feel the same way about welcoming you!  

Here’s the low-down on your Gold Coast branch car pick-up: 

  • Coming to us from the airport? Take advantage of our free shuttle bus. See the tab to the left for all the deets.  
  • Experience a warm welcome, some essential paperwork, and a quick check of your new friend (aka your car). If you have any questions about driving in Australia, where to go, or our crew’s fave things to do, now’s your chance to get some inspiration!  
  • Make sure you reach the branch at least 30 minutes before closing time; these are our latest car check-in times.  

Collecting your JUCY wheels outside of our branch hours? It’s all possible (for a $30 fee), but you need to know these helpful instructions: 

  • Make your way to our branch at 37 McLean Street in Coolangatta.  
  • Once at the branch, you’ll see a key lock box on the right-hand side of the wall, outside the gate. There will be a box with your name on it. (So VIP, eh?) 
  • To access your car key, use the last four digits of your JUCY rental agreement. For example, if your confirmation number is 2345678, you’ll move the lock key numbers to 5678. Match your keyring’s registration with your car. Yup, it’s that easy: you’re now road trip ready! Btw, we park our after-hour cars in front of our branch building, in case it’s not obvious.

You think we’d be used to saying goodbye, but it makes us teary just thinking about your JUCY adventure coming to an end.  

If you really must leave us, then follow the steps below to return your vehicle.  

  • Head to our branch at 37 McLean Street, Coolangatta.  
  • On the way, fuel up before you reach us. The closest petrol station is at Airport Central, 1 Eastern Ave, Bilinga QLD 4225Grab your belongings. Not just the obvious ones, like your suitcase or backpack, but also the Kindle you possibly dropped down the back of the seat (it happens). Oh, and that one-off arty souvenir, or the thong under the driver’s seat (no, no, not that kind of thong - the Aussie-named flip flop kind!). If you can collect any rubbish at the same time and pop it in the bins at the branch, we’d be super grateful.  
  • Hand your keys over and say your goodbyes.  
  • You are now ready to hop on the next free shuttle to the airport. Until next time! 

Are you returning out of our branch open hours? Read on: 

  • Drive to us at 37 McLean Street in Coolangatta, and remember to fill up your petrol tank on the way.  
  • Park your wheels in a JUCY car parking space outside the branch.  
  • Clear out your belongings and any rubbish, ensure the windows are closed and lock the car.  
  • Drop the keys in the after-hours key return box. You’ll find it on the right-hand side of the wall outside the gate.  
  • You’re all set to continue to your next destination now. If you’re flying out of the Gold Coast, an Uber ride will be about $10 to the airport; to downtown GC, expect to pay $40-50.

Explore the best of the Gold Coast in a JUCY car

Wowee. You’re about to visit one of Australia’s most fun destinations. Whether you’re 9 years old or 99, the region has something for everyone.  

Surf in the consistent waves at Burleigh Heads. Hike to the heart-shaped pool at Killarney Glen.  

Dangle upside down on the Doomsday Destroyer at Movieworld. Or go crazy and do all three in one day.  

If you prefer a mellower trip, the local wildlife is sublimeGo sub-tropical bird watching in Lamington National Park, ride a horse in the Gold Coast hinterland, or head to Springbrook National Park at sunset to watch the glowworms turn on their lights. A JUCY fave is the not-for-profit Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Hospital. It’s one of the world’s busiest wildlife hospitals, with more than 8,000 patients annually. 

Accessing these sights – and the hundreds of other attractions on the Gold Coast - is best done in a rental car. With four car categories for you to choose from, you can find a set of JUCY wheels to meet your needs. Choose our compact Small Hatch, go for a size upgrade with our Mid Hatch or Sedan, or take your team or mates away in our 8 Seater. Every vehicle comes with unlimited mileage, 24/7 roadside assistance, and free travel advice. Plus, we rent to adults 18+ and permit one-way trips if you don’t want to backtrack.  

While the sun shines in the Gold Coast a whopping 300 days a year, the best time to visit is May to October. Though, lock it in early as we can sell out. Book online or call us on 1800 150 850.
