Its hard to know much about Perth inter terminal shuttle when you live here as there is no reason for those living in Perth to get the shuttle because Perth terminals to anyone's home has possibly the least traffic anywhere in Australia and they are so easy to get to.

Apart from the FIFOs and international visitors the vast majority just drive and drop off people at both airports because it just isnt a hassle.

Every time we fly family and friends offer to drop us off and pick us up and we do the same. I visit the airports all the time but fly nowhere because I am dropping off and picking up,its always been this way

Perhaps consider UBER as well.
Interesting - if taxis are in short supply then expect Surge Pricing with Uber - ie the Costs will go up

To the OP - just take one from the taxi rank - I assume were talking International terminal - there will be a good supply there - or if you like Uber then its easy to get picked up at the airport. We don't have Lyft here

With the shuttle you know what the price will be. Uber operate what they call 'dynamic pricing' meaning if there is more demand their price goes up. In Brisbane a couple of months ago several suburban train services were cancelled. Many people called Uber, but their price sky-rocketed. From memory, I think they were charging up to four times the normal fare.

$42 for 2pax to Freo I would just get the shuttle I cant see you doing it any cheaper.

Just make sure the shuttle is not a milk run or it could take a few hours.

We have had that in Sydney with Kingsford Smith Transport. In Sydney we get a taxi.

It will be around AU$50-$60 to the City Centre. Maybe try an Uber if you want it for less. Someone said $25-$35 for a taxi to the city - no way!

Ah "yes way". Happy to scan you all of my receipts from last year - including as recently as 3 weeks ago. I taxi between airport and CBD hotels in Pyrmont, Campbell St and the Rocks very regularly.

There is a great app called Taxi fare finder which will give you a price for taxis all over the world. I have used it for Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, London etc. it is always pretty close to what the actual cost was, taking into account heavy traffic etc. Gives you an idea if whether cost fits your budget.
When disembarking at Singapore in Oct drivers were approaching passengers with $50 offers for travel to city hotels, people were snapping them up. We knew from Taxi finder price should be approx $20 and we ended up paying $19.

Hello,



Would anyone know the approximate taxi fare from Sydney airport to the Hyatt Regency on Sussex St., Darling Harbour? I am trying to decide if it would be cheaper to take a cab from the stand at the airport or pre arrange to have a taxi meet me and take me to the hotel.



Any information would be helpful.



Thanks in advance.

Hi Barb ,
We have sailed into cruise terminal near Circular Quay several times now and took a taxi to the International Airport where we leave our car , and each time the fare was about $45 - $50.
This is usually around 9 am and so sometimes more traffic.
Probably would be cheaper to take the airport train from there , but certainly easier our way with no luggage to cart around .
I guess the fare from the Airport to your Hotel would be similar as the cruise terminal is not too far from your Hotel , and somewhat dependent on time of day .
Should be plenty of taxis outside the Terminal , always has been in our experience.

We booked a private Minivan shuttle in December from Sydney International Terminal to Pitt Street. Cost was approx $60 (£35).
Much more comfortable in a 6 seater Minivan rather than squeezing into a Taxi with our large suitcases.
We booked through https://www.jayride.com/
