Gold Coast Travel Guide: How To Find The Best Airport Transfers

Do you ever get that tingling, exciting feeling before the start of your trip?

If you’re feeling particularly overwhelmed because you think there is so much to organise before your journey, well, you are not alone. We know because we love travelling as much as you do.

Travelling to Gold Coast?

The most challenging part of this sunny holiday has to be the planning. While it could seem like the least enjoyable part, but it can be fun – only if you find a way to execute it with great attentiveness.

Everyone wants their holiday to be as unforgettable as possible. But we also know that there are so many elements involved and it is impossible to be prepared for the unknowns.

However, there are parts we can prepare for, and these are what our Bus Charters Gold Coast specialists will be discussing in this article.

Questions to ask yourself before every trip

Do you ever catch yourself asking these questions before your trip?

  • Have I packed everything that I need?
  • What’s the weather going to be like?
  • Where to find the best dining spots in Gold Coast?
  • What places should I go?
  • How do I get from places to places?
  • Should I get an Uber or a taxi?

We bet you’ve wished many times that your trips could be so straightforward and stress-free – and all you need to do is just to show up and have fun!

If you’ve spent hours researching transit schedules, ticket prices, travel apps trying to figure out how to match your flight arrival time with the public transport schedule, we feel your pain.

Not only that, when multiple transits are involved, the mere thought of trying to find reliable ride-sharing services that will charge a fair price is stressing you out already. No one likes a surge price!

While we can’t always help with some of these issues, there is one very crucial part that we can help you with:

● What transport arrangements should I use?

We at Bus Charters Gold Coast have made it our mission to free you from this pain.
Servicing all domestic and international flights, we offer reliable and fast transfers to and from Brisbane and Gold Coast airports, and other destinations from Gold Coast to Beenleigh using our safe and modern fleet.

Why book an airport transfer?

Forget public transport and expensive ride-sharing services!

Whether you have a small or a large group travelling domestically or internationally, timing is key.

Here are 7 reasons why you should consider booking a private airport transfer:

1. Safe and trustworthy airport transport services from local licensed bus drivers

2. Get picked up directly from the airport to anywhere you wish without having to worry about transits

3. Flight delayed? Your driver will wait patiently until you show up

4. No surge, no nasty surprises – work with your bus hire company to plan everything ahead so you can relax and enjoy your journey

5. Booking flexibility – modify and make changes before the transfer

6. Affordable and great value – small or large groups and even those with lots of luggage

7. Handle your luggage with utmost care – travelling with surfboards, golf clubs or prams? Your own private bus will have plenty of space to accommodate these fragile items with care, no more dragging them from one place to another!

How do airport transfers work?

The key to booking an airport transfer is to do it in advance!

1. The main reason for the affordable and reasonable price you get from bus transfers is that they can plan ahead. They are able to send their coaches and drivers where they are required. Although in some cases they do accept an urgent transfer request, most of the clients book a day or more in advance.

2. For the above critical reason, most companies don’t issue refunds if you decide to cancel your transfer last minute when their resources have already been allocated.

3. Know the cost of transfer beforehand. Put your mind at ease, as the biggest difference between bus transfers and taxis or ride-sharing services is there are no hidden or extra charges, provided you’ve shared the accurate details and asked for booking confirmation.
