We find that there are 2 types of familes that will holiday in QLD, the theme park family that will holiday on the Gold Coast and the more relaxed and sofiticated family that will want to relax on the Sunshine Coast, where each ember of the family can choose to do their own thing, rather than do the whole family adventure.
Regardless of this, they will all arrive together at the airport and leave together, and this is where we come in with our reliable airport transfers in either sedans or 7 seater people movers to accomodate the families and their bags.
Cars On Demand technoplogy and fail safe mechanisms
There are not that many flights to and from Sunshine Coast airport, so if you missed your flight, it would be a disater.
At Cars on Demand we use state of the art technolgy and we learn from our mistakes and we try to use technology to stops these mistakes from ever hapenning again.
Sometimes our drivers have to actually knock on the doors to wake peolpe up who have slept in, and they are ever so greatful to us for helping them make that flight.
90 minutes before each transfer, the website will promt drivers to confirm that they are on the way, if a driver does not do this, our computer systems will call this driver and remind them, and if there is no response then the computer will call the manager on duty and alert them that a driver has not confirmed. Luckily this is a very rare occurences as all of our drivers are reliable.
In the past maybe one transfer out of 5000 might have been missed, with this new technology, we have brought that number down to ZERO.
Do you have guests coming into the city? Our car service is capable of taking care of their ground transport for you. Our minibuses can handle up to twelve guests per car. We also avail buses on request. Using our unique platform, you could opt to let us send your guests SMSes to keep them as informed as you are on their travel details.
We tend to find that when a guest transfer is booked, its usually done for someone who does not know the area they are in, this is where the local knowledge of Cars On Demand comes in very handy, as we only use local drivers for all of our airport and meeting transfers, all of our drivers know the area that they work in quite well.
If you’re here on business, we are more than willing to chauffeur you to and fro your meetings. You shouldn’t worry about commuting in a foreign location, we let you concentrate on the important tasks at hand. If you’re having day-long meetings with multiple stopovers, we recommend that you use our hourly service. It could prove more cost-effective.
We do transport for all manner of events- even large ones. Our fleet is capable of handling your transport needs. We could avail a fleet of up to fifty vehicles for your use. Our team is also able to coordinate transport for you.
We find that a lot of the pharmaceutical companies hold their conferences up on the Sunshine Coast, we have done quite a few transfers transport Doctors who were booked to speak at conferences, and these doctors are very time poor and need efficient and reliable service.
If you want to explore the city, you shouldn’t worry about transport. COD will ensure you get to adventure in comfort and style.
We are available on hourly hire for out of area services and full day activities. We sometimes take a speaker to a conference and they ask us to keep waiting there just in case the VIP finishes early, so that they can hop back in the car and head back to either back to the airport or even back to the CBD of Brisbane.

No worries at all, we track all flights and we will arrive when your plane touches down and wait for you, the courtesy free wait time does not start till the plane touched down.
If your flight is cancelled all you need to do is call us with your new flight details, or update them on your app.

We have meeting points all across Australia, these are listed in the confirmation of your transfer sheet, and most importantly please turn your phone on and you will get a text from the driver, any issues you can also contact us on our 24/7 hotline +61413905215
Can I book for a guest, and pay for it?
Yes you can, and the guest will not need to pay in the car, but it’s also a good idea to make sure that we have their contact number to make sure the transfer goes smoothly, and we also mask all phone numbers
Do you have an app? And do you service all airports?
Yes, of course, we have both Android and iOS apps, and you can book through the app if you are the traveller, and track the driver and communicate with them as well through the app.

As with all other locations in Australia, no suburb is out of our reach, we tend to find that there are a lot of self employed people who are able to work remotely , that work out of the Sunshine Coast, and sometime we transfer these digital nomads from their place of residence to the local airport on the Sunshine Coast or as far as Brisbane airport.
These are some of the suburbs that come to mind that we have done transfers to and from.
