private car hire melbourne

On business across Melbourne?

Multiple meetings around town and you are looking for no fuss solution?

Pre-book a Southern Cross private driver in Melbourne and we will help you keep to a tight schedule without the stress of driving yourself. From your hotel or Melbourne Airport through to your last appointment, we can provide you with a dedicated driver. Take the worry out of traffic and parking, while you take care of business. Discounted hourly rates apply for extended hire.

Daytime travel/medical appointments

Off-peak rates apply 9 am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, for all non-Airport trips (Public Holidays and Major Events excluded).

Cars are available during the day, even at short notice. For business meetings, lunch or personal appointments, where driving yourself is not ideal, consider Southern Cross as a viable alternative. Fares begin from $44 (including GST).

Our private drivers put safety first

The standards required by the Commonwealth Government and Multinational clients are applied to all bookings. Southern Cross extends organisational OH&S policies in the following ways:

  • We maintain a Fatigue Management Plan, hours our drivers are on the road
  • We maintain a Phone-free Driving Policy, including no hands-free phone calls

This is possible because our private drivers have a dedicated Booking Office to support them. Our drivers do not organise bookings whilst driving and concentrate on the driving task at hand.

  • Zero Blood Alcohol policy applies whenever our drivers are on duty
  • Drivers are individually screened and tested
  • All drivers are Government accredited
  • All drivers have Police checks
  • All drivers have working with children checks

If you are searching for a company that offers private car hire in Melbourne, you can trust Southern Cross to provide a safe, reliable service.

Working back late?

Don't want to risk it with a regular cab or an unlicensed alternative? Give us a couple of hours’ notice and we will organise a driver to get you safely home - all for a fixed price. Cabcharge is welcome.

Corporate functions

Attending a Corporate Function? Book with Southern Cross and you will arrive relaxed and on time. Enjoy your function knowing that your private driver will be there to provide you with a safe trip home at the end of the night. If you’re not sure about the finish time, that’s ok – your driver will be there when you’re ready.

Southern Cross can accommodate multiple transfers with our co-ordinated fleet of cars, so you have one less task to worry about.

Overseas/interstate guests

If you are hosting guests from interstate or overseas, we can organise a driver to meet your guests on arrival and deliver them safely to their hotel or to the host’s home.

Overseas students

We are well versed in greeting students arriving in Melbourne from all over the world. Our airport service is available 7 days, at all hours.

Invoicing and payment for private car hire services

We can account to your Corporation, Division or Cost Centre. All trips can be itemised on a monthly invoice at no additional charge. Alternatively, individual trips can be paid directly to the driver or can be charged to individual credit cards on a monthly or per-trip basis. You will receive an e-mail tax invoice, after you have travelled.
