How Much is a Taxi From Melbourne Airport to City?

By | blog | No Comments

Melbourne is a big city with a population of hundreds and thousands. The city also attracts a number of tourists and working professionals who visit for luxury and business reasons. To facilitate the rush of travellers to and from Melbourne city there is a facility rich airport as well as a well-structured and intricate of a taxi from Melbourne airport to city and vice versa.

Melbourne airport cabs are the best mode of transport that travellers choose. When it comes to comfortability, availability, and rates, airport taxi in Melbourne stands above all the other options. However, many travellers doubt that opting for a Melbourne airport taxi might burn a hole in their pockets. For your information, this isn’t right as with more and more reliable airport taxi services providers in the market, the rates of booking a taxi Melbourne are lower than ever.

Why book an airport taxi?

Whether you travel frequently or are a casual traveller, you need a mode of transport to travel to and from the airport. A few years ago, people relied on public transport and considered car service to the airport as not a very worthy option. However, in the recent past, with the advancement in the Melbourne airport taxi services, airport cabs have evolved drastically making it the most trustworthy option.

Melbourne Airport to City

When you choose a taxi to Melbourne airport you enjoy following benefits over public transport:

  • Higher comfortability as you travel in a well-maintained taxi.
  • Professional drivers chauffeuring you through the best routes.
  • Timely pick and drop service with no waiting on the stops.
  • Affordable rates
  • Highest level of privacy and safety for you and your luggage.

Cost of hiring a car service to the airport:

The cost of hiring an airport taxi depends on a range of factors such as the type of vehicle, destination, the distance between the pickup and start point, travel time, hour of the day, facilities opted for and more. Airport taxi is for sure cheaper than hiring a Skybus, especially when you hire in a group of two to three people. It is also a cheaper option if you are considering to park your car in the airport parking because the airport parking price for sure can get a lot higher to afford.

Usually, the best airport car transfer services providers charge you a reasonable price for the commute. However, if you end up dealing with a rogue company, you may end up paying a lot more than justified. This is why it is important that you check the background of the company before you book taxi Melbourne. Also, pre-booking an airport taxi is the best option as you get the assurance of availability and can also enjoy discounted rates.

Enjoy Zero Card Fee On Airport Taxi

By | cabinminutes | No Comments

Have you noticed that the Victoria Taxis are changing for the better? There are multiple things being done by Australian Government to value add to the Taxi Service Industry. There is a new Driver knowledge test added to make sure your Taxi driver is more informed and knowledgeable about locations and services. The changing the colour of your cab can make it easy for you to identify a particular cab service & there are rules set for advertising in taxis. As a part of these reforms, there are reductions to the surcharge for card payment for taxis.

The surcharge incurred when passengers pay their taxi fare using a debit or credit card, voucher or app is 5 per cent. It is half of the original surcharge, and it is inclusive of the GST. Now 5% is the maximum amount the Taxi service can charge.

As a passenger, if you get a bill with more than 5 % surcharge, please retain your receipt and contact either the payment provider or your card company/bank in the first instance. Passengers wishing to provide feedback or make a complaint should contact the TSC

The five per cent surcharge is the maximum amount that can be charged on top of the fare and is inclusive of GST. If the fare is $100.00, inclusive of the base fare and all other additional payments as agreed along with GST, then a surcharge of no more than $5.00 may be charged. The total cost to a customer is $105.00. The service can’t add Merchant fees to the surcharge.

A good taxi service will get you to your intended destination promptly. The service is also much more likely to help you get your vacation off to a positive start. As every form transport from Melbourne Airport is not as comfortable and convenient, you can select a proven service.
