When you land at Melbourne Airport you have the various options available to commute from the airport to your destination, whether it is Melbourne CBD or any other suburb.
let's find out how each option will be able to help you and in what circumstances these options will be best for you.
Let's start with SKYBUS. This service started between Melbourne Airport and CBD around 1980s. From 2017 Skybus started its service between Avalon Airport and Melbourne CBD as well. With recent expansions, it started serving a few other suburbs. As their tagline suggest Fast, Frequent and Affordable airport transfer.
It will cost you AUD 19.75 each person. So in order to catch the bus from your location for example if you are in CBD either you have to tram it to Southern cross station or catch a cab to commute to the Western end of the city which will cost you anywhere between $10 to $20. So the total amount with the bus ticket will be somewhere between $30 & $40.
Now consider this same scenario if you are more than 2 or 10 passengers this amount will increase dramatically and also the hassle to handle the baggage. This is just about the amount you will be spending to catch the bus. Another factor to consider is the shifting and loading of luggage.
Most of the travellers will surely have luggage. Less or more depends. You have to do four times luggage handling when you are travelling with this service. One at the start point into the taxi then at the disembarkment again when you board the bus and last one when you disembark from the bus. Most of the time these buses are jam-packed one would not have their own private space for the time they are travelling.
Above scenario is when you travel from Melbourne CBD to Melbourne Airport.
When you are travelling the other way around you have to again walk all the outside from the bus terminal to the taxi rank and grab a taxi or any other form of transport along with your luggage.
Now the same journey you commute with book maxi cab in our spacious neat and clean Maxi Van you have to give up all the tension of loading and unloading the luggage plus with our reasonable and fixed fares you can enjoy cost-effective and tension free ride to catch your flight.
