What's the benefits of using a Private Airport Transfer Service?
1. Minimizes Stress
One of the major advantages of hiring a Private Airport Transfer Service is the reduction of travel anxiety. Driving to and from the airport can be stressful for various reasons, such as using an unfamiliar car or being unfamiliar with your surroundings. By having a driving company transport you between your accommodation and the airport, stress will be eliminated from your trip.
2. Becoming lost
A common factor which contributes to stress when travelling is that of unfamiliar surroundings, which can lead to becoming lost. By hiring a Private Airport Transfer Service, you can be certain that you will not lose your way, as the professional driver is able to navigate the city’s layout with ease, and transport you safely to your destination
Many people experience increased anxiety whilst navigating unfamiliar streets or ‘hailing a cab’ upon arrival. However, by booking a transfer service beforehand, you can be sure that you will receive a professional and courteous travelling experience. Companies offer experienced drivers who are able to build instantaneous positive relationships, thus increasing levels of comfort during your trip. Furthermore, some drivers will point out tourist attractions if you are to pass these features on your route, helping you to become a bit more familiar with the location.
4. Security and reliability
When travelling, there is always the possibility of losing luggage during a flight or when using public transport, an event which can severely hinder your holiday experience. By hiring Private Airport Transfer Services, it is ensured that your luggage will be kept safe in the chosen vehicle. If you take public transport you will be surrounded by unknown individuals, which may elevate your anxiety levels. A private transfer service keeps your bags safe and allows you peace-of-mind while offering you the choice of a preferred vehicle suited to your travelling needs.

Option 2 : Catch A Taxi To Anywhere In The Melbourne Metro Area
Taking a taxi is the most common method of transport which people travelling to Melbourne City or St. Kilda choose after arriving at the Melbourne ( Tullamarine) Airport. It is often the easiest option, however, there can be a considerable wait in the line (in extreme cases, up to 40 minutes) for a taxi service depending on the season.
The taxi fare from Melbourne Airport to the City is around $50 - $80 depending on traffic. A regular taxi seats up to 4 people, although the price is the same regardless of whether or not the taxi is at maximum capacity, even if you're travelling by yourself.
If you are travelling in a larger group, 8-seater minivan taxis are available for a greater cost, however, such taxis often need to be pre-arranged. If you haven’t booked a larger taxi in advance, there is the possibility to phone for one upon arrival, although you may have to wait for the service, which could end up with you and your travel partners waiting for a long-time and missing out on possible sight-seeing time.
The taxi fare from the Melbourne Airport to St. Kilda is around $65 - $80, however, the cost may rise dramatically if you are stuck in traffic.
Tips when catching a taxi from the Melbourne Airport:
1. Use the bathroom before you head outside to the taxi queue.
2. Get in the taxi queue as soon as possible to shorten the waiting period.
3. Catch the taxi, but remember there are no guarantees regarding the cleanliness of the taxi or the driver’s skills.
Option 2 : Catch An Uber To Anywhere In The Melbourne Metro Area
Catching an Uber has started to become a more common method of transport for people travelling to and from the airport. It's easy to order a ride, however, you'll need to have Uber app already installed on your phone with an account & debit or credit card set up. An uber fare can be cheaper than your standard taxi fare, but you have to be careful if surcharging is in effect. During peak busy periods, Uber fares can sometimes cost passengers up to 4x the normal cost and if one is not careful in checking the cost before ordering, you can be faced with a nasty surpise at the end of your journey.
A regular uber service can only fit up to 4 passengers with the luggage capcity limited depending on the type and size of the car your Uber driver is using. To fit more passengers one may order a Uber XL for groups up to 6, however, if you are travelling with a larger group or large amounts of luggage, you won't be able to travel in an Uber at all.
If you want to travel in luxury, you are able to order an Uber Black service to ensure a better quality car and driver. However, be prepared to pay a much higher price as well as lacking the ability to choose your ride and driver as the driver picks which fares they wish to take, and not the other way round, so you have to take what you get.
Tips when catching an Uber from the Melbourne Airport:
1. Use the bathroom before you head outside as you can be waiting for an unknown time, especially in peak periods.
2. Order your Uber as soon as possible to avoid longer waiting times and possible increased surcharge.
3. Catch the Uber, but remember there are no guarantees regarding the driver and safety so always be aware.
