Journey: Melbourne Airport to Crowne Plaza

Crowne Plaza is one of Melbourne’s premier destinations. Every year, thousands of travellers arrive in Melbourne airport as they pass through to the Plaza. But how do they get there? Many take buses, which run frequently from Melbourne airport. But buses aren’t exactly the quickest or most direct option. Often, you’ll end up needing to make up the distance from the bus stop to your destination on foot.

Taxis are another common transport option, but their prices can be unpredictable. Sometimes, the service you receive doesn’t reflect the price you pay as well. That leaves the best option: a chauffeured Hughes transfer from Melbourne airport to Crowne Plaza. With Hughes, you can enjoy luxury vehicles, direct private services, and 24×7 availability. Better still, you can enjoy all of that for prices on par with most alternatives.
