Where does a place like Gold Coast get its name? Is it from the bright yellow sands along its 110km of shoreline? Perhaps it’s because gold is one of Australia’s national colours, or because of the area’s wealthy, jewel-brandishing residents.
Or could it be all the treasure that’s been discovered from nearby shipwrecks?
We think it’s because a trip where you can lounge on your choice of 30 beaches, surf the waves and have access to the Hinterlands is worth its weight in gold, but let’s see if we can help you spend less than that on flights to Gold Coast, huh?
From the Gold Coast Airport (OOL), jump on bus 760 or lucky number 777. There’s also the Gold Coast Light Rail, which is probably the easiest way to get around. If you rent one of Wotif’s car hire options, you won’t have to worry much about traffic like in Brisbane or other large cities.

Here’s an insider tip: Monday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2021, we found that flights departing on a Monday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Saturday. You might want to think twice about flying on a Thursday though; generally, our data showed that it had the highest average ticket price.
Guess what? It turns out that early in the week is the best time to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2021, we found that flights purchased on a Monday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on the weekend also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Friday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking on that day.
When comparing airfares booked through Wotif in 2021, our data shows February is one of the cheapest months to fly. On the other hand, the month of December can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early if December is your preferred travel month.
Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2021 flight demand trends, you can bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing just 1 week prior to travel.
