Journey: Melbourne Airport to Collins Street

When you arrive in Melbourne airport, you’ll find yourself about 23km northwest of the CBD. So what options are available for you to bridge that distance. Well, there are plenty. Melbourne airport is serviced by a wide range of transport options. There are taxis, buses, trains, and more. But public transport has its setbacks. First, there’s frequency. Catching trains and buses almost invariably means waiting around for a while. The same can be said for taxis; queues at airport taxi ranks can take half an hour to navigate.

And then there’s comfort. Public transport and taxis aren’t exactly the most comfortable options. That’s why we think a chauffeured transfer from Hughes is the ideal airport solution. With Hughes, you get a door to door service, in a premium or luxury vehicle. Your chauffeur will drive you from Melbourne airport to your Collins Street destination directly, 24/7.
