Michelle’s blog about Car Rental in Mooloolaba

Sunshine Coast Car Rentals is independently owned and operated by Alexandra Headland locals – Dave & Michelle Schwab.  I had a quick chat with them recently.   Here’s my interview with them…   Who are your clients exactly?

Our clients come to Mooloolaba for a relaxing holiday and are happy to take each day at their own pace.   They have a sense of adventure and like to explore and visit new places.   The new visitors to the coast are keen to tick off the main tourist attractions off their list – but then so are our annual visitors.  Our clients have been working hard all year and looking forward to a stress-free holiday.  

How are you different from other Car Rental Firms?
Because most of our clients run out of time to plan a full itinerary before they get to Mooloolaba and they often don’t realise how expansive the Sunny Coast and how much more there is to see and do.    Often they have to book a number of buses, tours and airport transfers to do what that want to do and its all adds up $ financially.    We help our clients by putting together an itinerary to SAVE you TIME and MONEY to make the most of your stay.  We also offer F.R.E.E. transfers to and from the Sunshine Coast Airport, so this service works out to be a fantastic service to the itineraries we suggest.   We try our hardest to make hiring a car as easy as possible.  That’s why our tag line is “WITH US CAR HIRE IS A BREEZE!   

What vehicles do you have for hire?
Our most popular ZIP AROUND Suzuki Swift is our smallest cheapest car hire.  This is perfect for couples wanting to zip around as a cost effective option.  MR SPORTY is our sporty ride, ideal for the taller drivers and or family of 4 to 5.  MR POPULAR (Toyota Corolla) is ideal for the small family where more boot space is required.  MR COMFORT (Toyota Camry) is ideal for the whole family to travel in comfort. TEAM SUNSHINE COAST (VW Mulitvan) seats 7.  These vans get used for transporting bridal parties between ceremony and reception venues in Mooloolaba, or the girly weekend day trips.   All our cars are AUTOMATIC and have AIR CONDITIONING!  Thats a-must-have for the Sunshine Coast climate.  

Do you offer any discounts or specials?
We offer F.R.E.E. Airport transfers to and from the Sunshine Coast Airport during business hours.  Because we don’t have a booth at the Sunshine Coast Airport (being small indepenant company) we make it a convenient as possible for our clients by picking them up from the airport and then bring them back to our office in Mooloolaba to go through the documentation together.   We also have different monthly specials that are promoted on our website.    

When is payment required?
We require a Credit Card to reserve a specific vehicle.  No deposit is required and payment is taken on the day of hire.  We need more than 24 hours notice should you wish to cancel your reservation.  Less than 24 hours notice a cancellation fee applies.   

What is the easiest way to reserve a vehicle?
With the primary focus to have a stress-free break away and doing something serious about rejuvenating, you need to call us before you arrive or come and seeus as soon as you’ve settled in so that we can help you plan the days ahead to make to most of your short term stay.   

All you need is your Drivers Licence (International Drivers Licences accepted) and a Credit Card.  We’ll help out put together a itinerary to SAVE you TIME and MONEY to make the most of your stay.
