Whilst your Burleigh Heads accommodation is located central to everything, especially amazing restaurants, shops, cafes and activities perfect for a holiday or weekend getaway, if you plan to explore more of the Gold Coast, particularly our gorgeous hinterland, then hiring a car is a must.
Burleigh Heads is lucky to host two of the friendliest, most reliable car rental companies on the Coast. Read on and you’ll find out why.
Star Rent A Car
The mission statement says it all for Star Rent A Car – “Shining above the rest”. And they certainly do with excellent service and a modern, meticulously maintained range of cars.
Jian and his brother, Ash, started Star Rent A Car in August 2006. The company still operates as a family owned business with a perfect client feedback score where the customers are valued as so much more than just a number….and their testimonials show they know it.
“My family have lived here for many years,” says Jian. “So, when I returned from a time in America, I met and married an Aussie lady and settled down.
“Burleigh is such a lovely place, we are lucky to have our headquarters here, although we service all Gold Coast areas including the airport and hotels, delivering the car if requested.”
Star Rent A Car customers are enthusiastic about the service, regularly writing their thanks.
One example is from Linda and Steve Mainwaring:
Dear Jian and Ash, just wanted to say a BIG ‘thank you’ for your great service, your punctuality in delivering the car, your friendliness and advice. Also for sending so promptly Steve’s wallet that he left behind and the courtesy phone calls to make sure we got it. We will certainly recommend Star Rent A Car to family and friends.

Ready Car Rentals
Ready Car Rentals was started in 2013 and founded by Stuart Irwin. After hearing many tourists talk about the trials and tribulations of dealing with some Gold Coast companies, Stuart saw the need to provide rental car services direct to the customer rather than making them come to a set location to pick up the car and drop it off, having then to make their own way to and from their Burleigh Heads accommodation or the airport. By taking the car direct to the client, Stuart saved them time and money.
“We also make pick ups at the airport,” says Stuart. “This saves the customer money on expensive airport transport fees and time waiting at counters as we meet them at the gate and take them straight to their vehicle.
“I’m a Burleigh local of seven years and have had other business interests in the area. I’ve spoken with many apartment managers over the years and the idea of a friendly, reliable and cost effective service fits well with the friendly and laidback nature of this area.
“After living in Burleigh for many years I couldn’t think of a better place to work whilst also hopefully playing my part in making Burleigh’s guests feel comfortable, welcome and relaxed.”
Ready Car Rental’s customers love the service with many posting their thanks. Here’s an example from the Parente family (Visiting from Toronto, Canada)
We had an awesome experience with Ready Car Rentals. Stuart picked us up from Brisbane airport and drove us to our hotel at Burleigh Heads where our vehicle was waiting for us. In the latter part of our stay he upgraded us to a minivan. At the end of our trip he drove us back to Brisbane airport. We are extremely pleased with Ready Car Rentals’ service and would highly recommend them to anyone visiting gold Coast, Australia. 5 star service.
