Shuttle driver could have been nicer, so could collection staff. Not all the previous damage was on their own photos but I did have the option to add my own. The location was very busy on return of the vehicle though so we had to wait a long time and in the end just forced the keys into the hands of the only person on the forecourt who was manoeuvring several cars and even ones returned after us and got the next shuttle bus back to airport.

Friendly staffCar was old, 87,000kms, today but not clean on inside. Being off the airport base is annoying, having to wait for shuttles.
8.8 ExcellentDec 15 2018
Clean Quick Pickup . But Like to upsell.Clean Quick pickup. Ended up upgrading car size at a slightly reduced cost due to limited bag space. Friendly staff.Supposed car was checked for typical problems. Only in first bit of rain found wiper blades were falling apart (Ticked as checked but obviously not). Thank god it did not rain much.

No deposit needed. Everything was ready to go on arrival.
4.4 OkayJun 30 2017
One way rental charge which was meant to included. Confusion and delay at drop off which caused a one hour charge to be added
6.4 GoodJul 28 2016
Hidden feesNice clean car. No complaint there.I dropped off 30 minutes before my estimated drop off time. In my hundreds of car rental experiences I've never seen a 'early drop off fee' but when I got the bill I was charged $30 for being 30min early. Outrageous. As troubling is the fact that neither hertz nor hertz Australia have responded to my inquiries now 9 days after I emailed them. This is how you treat 'gold' customers?

2.0 MediocreMay 14 2022
made booking over the internet priced for pick up at airport ,price changed ,had paid for access and was told that it was not inclouded in the price .you need to check your terms of hire .too many lies .
4.0 OkayJan 13 2022
Had to fill out a form at the desk, when I asked why, as I have never been asked to do this before, the employee told me that because I was a local, I was more likely to be dodgey. I told him I could easily go somewhere else, but He said he didn’t mean me, just locals. Bad choice if words for him.
10.0 ExcellentDec 25 2021
The Staff at the service counter at Coolangatta airport were courteous, informative and helpful. I went to the hire car and the key wouldn't turn. I went back to the counter and the man (Alex?) was extremely helpful. He came out to the car with me and showed me that I need to turn the wheel to unlock the key (d'oh!) for it to turn. I thanked him and he assured me that it was no trouble. The car was absolutely spotless and drove beautifully and it went without a problem. The price of the hire was also pleasing to my bank balance. Not only would I highly recommend Budget Car Hire Coolangatta, I will definitely use them again. Five Stars

Friendly customer service. Fast and prompt attention. New car and clean interior. Top notch rental. Been using Europcar rental previously in Dubai & Sydney and now in Goldcoast and services were excellent but prices for Goldcoast are way more expensive than Dubai or Sydney.
4.0 OkayJan 30 2022
Well I was waiting in the queue for more than 1.5 hour. I picked up the car key around 11:45. I asked if I can drop my car back around 1 pm. The answer was you have to pay one extra day due to pick up time is 10am you need to return your car at 10. Well first of all I haven’t picked up the car at that time. Second the approach was not polite at all.

Car broke down on the M1 during peak traffic Luckily I was able to drift off and down off the Nerang off ramp Waited 1 hour for a tow truck then the fun started - the call taker told me a replacement car was not possible as Gold Coast office had closed -kept calling the call centre till I found a customer caring person who then managed to contact the Manager who authorised payment to the towing company to take the car and I to Brisbane Airport where a replacement car was waiting I lost 4hrs but thanks to the Manager they revived the situation A special thanks to the Manager who called me and kept me informed The desk informed me on returning the car that 1 days hire was being refunded Thank you Alamo for a great recovery effort
10.0 ExcellentFeb 5 2018
All good and smooth. Car in a good condition, friendly staff.Was forced into upgrade as arrived 1.5hrs early, but that was just $7 per day, so eventually it was for good.

Pre-booking also means that the rental company can ensure that your vehicle is ready and waiting based on your flight arrival time.
