The Cars On Demand Gold Coast Airport Transfer Experience

There are mainly 2 types of travellers that vist the Gold Coast of Australia, the first one are families who travel there for their holidays, and we service this clientele very well with our large number or 7 seater people movers, as they always travel with lots of bags.

The second one is the executive traveller who visits the Gold Coast mainly for conferences and meetings, a lot of organiosations hold their annual conferences here as it allows people to work and play a littlew after the work is done. And as per usual, with the dozens of corporate sedans, that we have in Brisbane as well as on the Gold coast, we attend tot he needs of these executives very well indeed.

We offer airport transfer solutions in the Gold Coast area. Our car service is focused on providing the most efficient, comfortable and elegant ground transport services for both corporate and high-level private individuals. To that end, we offer a number of services in and around the city.

Airport Transfers

Our company has considerable experience in doing airport transfers in the area. Our professional drivers will make sure you get to your chosen destination in time. When you leave your plan you’ll find them waiting for you. If you’re travelling as a group, our fleet has minibuses capable of handling up to 12 passengers at a time. Buses can be made available on request.

In some cases executives will fly to Brisbane as they have more flight options, and they will book an airport transfer from the Brisbane area , all the way down to the Gold Coast, once again this is a long trip, and you would want to make sure that the car and company you choose are absolutely reliable.

Even a transfer from Gold Coast airport to Main Beach is 32km in distance alone.


Guest Transfers

You don’t have to worry about your guests with ground transport from the airport. We excel at that. As mentioned before we have a fleet of minibuses available for group transfers as well as high-end luxury sedans both local and exotic available to drop off your guests to the city.

As mentioned above, a lot of international speakers also visit the Gold Coast because of the number of conferences, these VIP travellers are very time poor and need reliable and efficient service, they have no time to waste waiting around for their car. This is why our drivers always monitor the flights for all of their airport transfer and make sure that they are waiting for all customers as they exit the terminal doors.

Meeting Transfers

If you’re in Gold Coast for business, our chauffeur service is ready and willing to transport you from meeting to meeting allowing you to concentrate on what matters most. If you have day-long meetings or many stopovers between meetings we recommend that you hire us on an hourly basis. It could prove more cost-effective.

In some cases, an executive will start their day in Brisbane and have several meetings down the coast, they will work their way down and end up in one of the hotel on he coast, when booking an hourly hire with Cars on Demand, we do not charge you for the KM  driven, we only charge you per hour or per minute.

We always recommend that if you are unsure about the length of time needed, its best that you book for less hours as we can always add afterwards, but we cannot subtract.


Cars On Demand technoplogy and fail safe mechanisms

There are not that many flights to and from Gold 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.

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.
