Getting picked up from Gold Coast airport: what do you need to know?

Gold Coast Airport is located at the southern end of the Gold Coast, sitting alongside the Queensland and New South Wales border. Because of its small size, there is only one main passenger terminal where all domestic and international flights such as Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, AirAsia X, and Scoot operate from.

When it comes to parking, there are four car park options and over 2000 spaces. First, there is Premium Covered Parking which has the closest walk to the terminal, Short-Term Terminal Parking which is charged per hour if you stay under 8 hours, and Long-Term Parking which you will need to book online for discounted pricing (get more information on parking here).

If you’re not planning on staying long, there is free one-hour parking in any Long-Term Car Park where you can wait, and then proceed to the pickup bay when ready. These same bays are the ones you can use for a quick drop-off. Additionally, there is an express pick up and drop at Terminal 2.
Free functioning Wi-Fi can be found all over the airport, as well as in shops, cafes, baggage storage, lockers, foreign exchange, and restaurants. If you are just in transit, the Virgin Australia lounge is only a step away for Velocity Platinum, Gold, and partner airline reciprocal status members at Gates 1 & 2
