Rental a car in Gold Coast

Hi,

Is it safe to drive from Goldcoast airport to Country Paradise Farm ? How long is the journey ?

If we have a group of 12 adults & 1 infant,Is it cheaper to hire a van or 2 cars ?

You will be lucky to find even a van for rental that seats 13, you probably need a van AND a car or 3 cars.

The infant will require a seat of their own which is fitted with an approved child restraint. Being held by an adult is against the law.

Most cars are only licensed to seat a maximum of 5 people including the driver. There are some "people movers" that have 7 seats. Most vans only seat a maximum of 12 people.

You'll probably need to go to one of the major rental companies like Hertz, Europecar, Avis or Budget to get the right combination for your group.

You will need a full license of your country of origin
