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.

The booking fee is about $2.50 (May have gone up slightly since I last checked) but the fare will be the same.

I have never paid 60-70 from anywhere in Syd CBD - especially from Darling Harbour - just tell them to go the O'Riordan street way - average $25 to $35 even on a bad traffic day.

I suppose the estimator is allowing for the drivers that don't go that way then.

Even any other direction I have never paid more than $40. I am up there 5 or 6 times a year as recently as 3 weeks ago.

Isnt there also an airport surcharge for airport pick ups?

I have not been to Sydney in 2 years but the cab then cost $55 odd from domestic to half way down Pitt st.

Unless they have changed cars most Sydney Taxi,s are rubbish for cruise passengers as they need to put the luggage inside on the car seats! its a struggle with 2 people and cruise luggage so a small family would need a maxi or at least a station wagon.

I haven't caught a taxi from the airport for a few years as we tend to either get the train or the bus there. You are certainly getting it at a good price.

Hi,

We have a cruise coming up from Sydney and will be flying in the day before and staying at the Hyatt Regency as well. We always use Omni limos for a Sydney airport transfer to the CBD or airport, seems the same or less that taxi fares and better service. Current price is $47. Have a look at https://www.omnicar.com.au and no I don't work for them, just used them a few times.

Cheers
Steve

fishtaco being from Perth can you answer a couple of question please

when arriving at Perth domestic airport is Qantas and Virgin flights arrive at the same terminal as i'm flying Qantas and my friend is flying Virgin and we want to meet up

going to Fremantle is the shuttle the best way to get there

I will jump in and answer one of your questions. If there are two of you the shuttle would be by far the cheapest. It is about a 45 minute drive from the airport to the cruise terminal in Fremantle. The taxi fare is well in excess of $60. I think it is likely that both flights will arrive at the same terminal. It is not very large.

Maybe bad news Virgin domestic at present fly in and out of T1 which is the international airport,I know cos wife flew to Tassie and back on virgin in Dec.

QF flights 1-399 come in at T1 but all the other QF,s come in at T4 and T3 which is the domestic terminals,I know this off hand because its on my tickets for next Friday by road they are miles away, by runway short walk but not allowed! lol

Domestic to CBD is almost half the cost of intetnational to CBD by Taxi
There is a free shuttle between airports but I have never seen it.

Taxi to Freo from airport can set you back $80+
Not sure of the shuttle price but I would shuttle or cab to the main train station ,one short straight line to Freo and Perth trains are usually empty so no luggage problems.

Best lesurly option is ferry from Barrack st area to Freo cruising past one of the most spectacular river views in the world and millionairs row

Just to add Taxi from Domestic to freo would be more than Taxi from International because of the new Highway system .
