Melbourne airport: Finding your way around the terminals

Melbourne airport is big, to say the least! It has four terminals, each hosting a number of carriers. Those terminals vary in terms of their destinations, too, with terminal two being dedicated to international flights only. To some who might not travel frequently, the idea of four terminals could feel a little overwhelming.

But, luckily, Melbourne airport has all the facilities necessary to accommodate hassle-free travel. There are free waiting zones, for those who are collecting passengers, as well as abundant drop off spaces at the forecourt of each terminal. In addition to that, there’s plenty in the way of car parks for short and long term travellers. Then, to top it all off, there are the 1, 10, and 20 minute waiting zones. With all those spaces on offer, you needn’t worry about arriving a little early!

Other Transport Options

Other transport options from Melbourne airport to St Kilda

Of course, there are plenty of transport options servicing Melbourne airport. Before choosing a form of transport from Melbourne airport to St Kilda, it might be useful to know how to get from St Kilda to the city. Generally, taxis and rideshares are the most popular form of airport transport in this regard. However, they don’t always offer the service that you might want. Below, we’ve listed some of your options.

Taxis from Melbourne airport to St Kilda

Taxis offer convenience, and that is why they are among the most popular options when it comes to getting from Melbourne airport to St Kilda. However, taxis have their drawbacks too. Most notably, there is the problem of inconsistent service. When you catch a taxi, there is often no guarantee of the kind of service you will receive and also the wait. When you arrive at Melbourne airport, you’ll be in the company of thousands of other passengers – most of whom will be looking to catch a taxi. As a result, it’s easy to find yourself stuck at the end of a very long queue. With Hughes, though, there’s no chance of that!

Rideshare from Melbourne airport to St Kilda

Rideshares have emerged as a strong contender to taxis. They are prevalent around Melbourne airport, too. However, rideshares face many of the same issues as taxis. The driver rating does ensure that service is a little more consistent, but there is still the problem of service congestion. That often occurs when large volumes of passengers try to access ride share services at once, in the same area. Our advice: avoid the wait. Booking with Hughes gives you certainty; you know that there’s a car waiting for you when you arrive. The last thing you want after a long flight is a long wait! With Hughes, you can set your pick up place, and your destination well in advance. With everything organised and paid for, you simply need to step out of the terminal to meet us.
