Where will my chauffeur meet me? Melbourne Airport Pickup Location

Where to meet my chauffeur?

Melbourne Airport itself provides information on pick-up zones for Terminal 1, 2 and 3 passengers. These pick-up zones are located on the ground level of the Terminal 1, 2 and 3 forecourt. Travellers can be collected from these areas, making it easy for Hughes private car services to pick you up directly at the airport terminal.

Domestic Terminal 1 (QANTAS) Landing Gates 1 – 12:
In front of Baggage Carousel 1 (take a left at the escalators, next to the car rental area).

Domestic Terminal 1 (QANTAS) Landing Gates 13 – 24:
In front of Baggage Carousel 4 (directly outside gates).

Domestic Terminal 3 (Virgin):
At the bottom of the Virgin escalators

Domestic Terminal 4 (Jetstar/Regional/Other):
Your chauffeur will wait at the exit door directly after passenger baggage collection.

International Airport:
Upon clearing customs, you will exit at either Gate A or Gate B. Your chauffeur will await your arrival directly outside Gate A, between the Optus and Hudson Coffee stores. If you have exited at Gate B, simply turn right and walk ahead to the Optus and Hudson Coffee stores outside Gate A.

Buses & Coaches (8+ seats):
Your chauffeur will wait in the designated holding bay until your flight arrives. They will then move to the coach pick-up point called the Blue Zone, Group & Charter, which you will find located opposite Virgin and International Arrivals.

Your chauffeur will call the nominated booking contact and confirm the assigned pick-up bay.

How much does a Melbourne Airport Transfer cost?

We strive to deliver a premium airport transfer service at a competitive rate. Your transfer price will vary based on your destination. Use the pricing tool above to get an estimate or complete our contact form to get an instant quote by email.

How much luggage can my car accommodate?

Our sedan’s maximum luggage limitations are two (2) normal-sized suitcases (check-in size for a plane) plus two (2) pieces of hand luggage/soft luggage (carry-on for a plane) or one (1) large suitcase plus one (1) set of Golf Clubs and one (1) soft luggage.

Customers should consider booking a larger vehicle if they have more luggage than a sedan can accommodate. No suitcases will be transported inside the passenger area of the vehicle due to transport regulations and safety concerns.

If you have luggage beyond that outlined above or are unsure of whether your luggage meets requirements, we recommend talking to the Hughes team on 1300 615 165 to ensure you book the appropriate vehicle for your needs.

Will my chauffeur wait if my flight is delayed?

We monitor flight information to ensure we arrive at the appropriate time for the flight number nominated on your booking. We also offer generous complimentary waiting periods of up to 30 minutes for domestic and up to 45 minutes for international airport transfer bookings.
