Will I get the best price on my Sunshine Coast Airport Car Hire?

Car rental is a 'supply and demand' type of business. Prices always reflect that fact. At Aussie Bargain we compare our prices with our competitors to ensure we are giving you, our customer, maximum value without compromising on your safety or our service. We do this because, when you go to rent a car, there is so much more to focus on than just finding the cheapest car rental deals. Surely you also want a reliable, safe and well presented 'clean' vehicle for your holiday or trip? Our goal is to provide all that and more; whilst still remaining affordable.

Whether you are searching for family car rentals, a budget car hire for your business travel, or an insurance replacement after a smash; at Aussie Bargain we work hard to ensure your entire vehicle hire process is straight forward, transparent and trouble free.

Where can I use my rental car?

All our rental cars and and mini-vans have an allocated area of use in South East Queensland. They are available for use between Hervey Bay in the north, Toowoomba in the west and Coolangatta (at the bottom of the Gold Coast) in the south.

Our new and near new cars may be approved to go further north, e.g to Bundaberg, subject to certain conditions. Please ask us if you wish to go further afield. Where we are unable to assist with more distant destinations, we can frequently recommend other companies who can.

For longer hires, campervans and motorhomes have a significantly expanded area of use. During COVID, the Approved Area of Use is restricted to approved areas in Queensland and New South Wales only; mainly along the East Coast. Please contact our office for details.


Freedom to travel again- ain't it great!

Freedom to travel again- ain't it great!Welcome back to the Sunshine Coast. After a pretty rough couple of years for so many people, it is great to see the smiling faces again of so many long term customers, those who have re-connected with us and those who are hiring cars with us for the first time.

A number of things have changed as a result of Covid - 19. In order to reduce and minimise face to face contact for health reasons and maximise safety for staff and customers alike, we have switched to a 'minimum contact' model. No longer do we pick up our customers and bring them back to our office to complete the booking process. Instead it is all completed online before your arrival. Generally our customers will now finalise their bookings with us and pay for their hire the day before we supply the car. Handover of the car is therefore streamlined and our customers are on their way within minutes of receiving the car; generally at the Sunshine Coast Airport. This process is much quicker and easier for our customers and is proving to be a very popular process.

Vehicle return options may vary, depending on the time of day, however we now ask that during Office Hours, after refueling the car locally, customers drop off family and luggage at the Sunshine Coast Airport Terminal. The hirer then returns to our office where a staff member will Check In the car and drive the hirer back to the departures terminal. A quick and trouble free process.*
