If you are looking to get from the Brisbane Airport to private or hotel accommodation on the Gold Coast, we offer a chauffeured service called Train & Transfer. You simply need to catch the Airtrain to a Gold Coast station and a chauffeured vehicle will transfer you to your Gold Coast accommodation or residential address.
This service also includes a complimentary break of journey (stopover) in Brisbane city (see below for list of city stations), either on your way to the Gold Coast or on your way back from the Gold Coast to the Airport. You can spend as many days as you like and just hop back on the train once you are ready to continue your journey. To take advantage of this service, after you have made your Train & Transfer booking, either email [email protected]au or call 1800 119 091 and quote your booking number and let us know that you would like to stopover in the city. Our staff will then have all your tickets ready for collection when you arrive at the airport or when you depart from the Gold Coast.
All children aged 14 and under travel free between Airtrain's airport and city stations. If travelling to any suburban station including Gold Coast stations, the fare charged on the website is only the Translink portion of the fare.
There are also discounts associated with the Train & Transfer fare for children as this service is managed and controlled by Airtrain.
