How Does It All Work?

Once you've booked your transfer

When you've chosen the best Melbourne airport transfers for you, you will receive an email confirmation. You'll need this when you arrive in Melbourne, so pop it somewhere safe (not your sock drawer!) and remember to take it when you travel.

Arriving at Melbourne Airport

  • When you touch down in Melbourne, make your way to the Arrivals Hall, grabbing your luggage on the way.
  • We know that after flying halfway around the world, the last thing that you want to be doing is waiting around for your transfer, so someone will be ready and waiting for you.
  • If you're on a shared shuttle bus, there will be a representative waiting to show to your awaiting vehicle.
  • If you've opted for a private transfer, keep an eye out for someone with your name on a board (just like in the movies).
  • There might be a designated desk that your driver waits at, so if you don't see them right away, make your way to the desk listed on your confirmation.

Oh no, my flight has been delayed!

Delays are one of the lesser joys of travelling, but if it happens to you, don't panic. On your confirmation, there is a contact number which will put you through to your provider. Let them know what's happened, and they'll make sure someone's waiting for you when you land.

When it's time to come home

When the time comes to say farewell to Brisbane, we make sure that your return transfer to the airport goes off without a hitch.

  • Your confirmation has details of your pick up time and location, so all you have to do is turn up and go.
  • It's recommended that you're all packed and ready at least 15 minutes before your pick up time, to help everything run like clockwork.

Magnificent Melbourne

Melbourne has a reputation as a seriously cool city. From hip bars and restaurants, endless cultural attractions and a laid back atmosphere, it is a unique city at the bottom of the globe. With the Botanical Gardens, Zoo and a museum featuring dinosaur skeletons and Aboriginal artefacts, culture vultures will find Melbourne to be a haven. A must-do attraction in the city is the Eureka Skydeck. The tallest viewing platform in the southern hemisphere offers outstanding views over the city and surrounding landscape.

Taking a trip out of the city and along the Great Ocean Road is sure to be a trip highlight. With awe-inspiring scenery and a chance to see the famous 12 apostles, this view is one of the best not just in the country, but the world.
