Travel: Australia - Gold Coast

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Hi,

May I check if you purchase sim cards in order to have data plan? If yes, can advise on the plan package and where to purchase them? Will be going to goldcoast for a week.

For car rental, do you also opt for the following:

Roadside Assistance Cover
Extra Drivers
GPS Navigation

Better to be well covered to zero excess , travel insurance rental car excess is set at $4 to $5 k ( still high) zero excess is worry free- car rental operators OSO no need to check the car upon return , save time...

Prepaid sim can get fr Brisbane airport , think surfers p OSO have telco outlets at Cavill malls or convenience stores

Thank you for your help MyPillow! :)

I will book as you have suggested. We will touch down at Goldcoast airport and I think should be able to get when I am there.

Any recommendation for places that I should visit?

If you are confirmed going, and the sale is from a legit source, I say go grab them.
