Melbourne Airport Transfer FAQs

What happens once I've booked my airport 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.

What happens when I arrive 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! Will my transfer leave without me?

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 you receive the assistance you need.
