If you think about it, Uber is made for the Gold Coast. International tourists are already familiar with Uber and families coming from other states might want to get lifts through Uber rather than renting a car.

If you want to take advantage of the pay possibilities that come with being an Uber driver, there's a way to do it without using your own car. Uber car rental companies give you an Uber-ready vehicle that you pay a fee to use, with that fee covering maintenance and insurance.
