Meet and greet

Engage Southern Cross’ limousine airport transfer service to meet your overseas/interstate guests or delegates at Melbourne Airport. Flights are tracked and drivers meet passengers inside the terminal.

On time…every time

When you book an airport limo, our staff will check that you have calculated your pick-up time correctly. Airport transfers are allocated in a timely manner to drivers through the day to deliver you comfortably, safely and punctually. Early morning private airport transfers are allocated to a driver the night before. You will receive an automated SMS with your driver’s name and contact number on every booking.

We don’t over book the service.

Whilst we can handle hundreds of bookings daily, every service – no matter how large the fleet – can get booked out. There are only so many seats in the ‘restaurant’ and our trained fleet controllers constantly monitor peak periods of demand to ensure there are enough drivers available to service every booking that we have undertaken a commitment to service.

Professional – licensed and fully insured

All our airport limousine chauffeurs are fully accredited and most have many years of experience as professional drivers. Our drivers have an intimate knowledge of Melbourne that only comes with daily, on the road experience. All our vehicles are:

  • Licenced commercial passenger vehicles - VHA/B registered
  • Fully insured - each vehicle has $5 million commercial passenger vehicle insurance
  • The business has a $10 million dollar Public Liability Cover
  • Drivers are Government accredited, with Police and Working with Children Checks.

Ultimately, we are fully accountable to you, our client. We take responsibility for getting you to your destination in comfort and on time... every time.

Fixed price Melbourne Airport transfer limos

When you book an airport limo, fixed prices are available to and from all suburbs across Greater Metropolitan Area or indeed across any destination throughout Victoria. This applies to Avalon and Essendon Airports as well.

Our rate includes road tolls and GST, so you know the deal up front. Rates do not ‘surge’ in heavy traffic conditions.

Luxury Peole Movers for personal, holiday & leisure travel

When you are travelling with your family or friends, we can provide a family People Mover such as Kia Carnival or Luxury people mover such as Mercedes Viano  for up to seven (7) passengers - plus luggage. Use your business Account or pay separately – it’s no issue.

Baby capsules and child seats are pre-fitted when required.

Avoid the uncertainty of booking maxi-cabs. Pre-book a Southern Cross driver to meet you when you arrive at Melbourne Airport from interstate or overseas.

Flight monitor

When you book a private limousine airport transfer, we will monitor your flight arrival time and meet you once your flight has landed. Your driver will be there at the right time, day or night. From Melbourne Airport, our Fixed-Price Transfer Rates still apply. No waiting charge applies for Domestic Arrivals.

For International Arrivals, we will have your driver in the terminal as follows:

  • Business Class: 20 minutes after actual landing time
  • Economy Class: 30-45 minutes after actual landing time

This way we normally avoid waiting charges and parking in excess of $4.00.

Early flights / missed flights

We understand that changes to your schedule are not unusual. Call from your departing port or send a text and we will meet you from your updated flight. If you miss your flight, please let us know in order to avoid a cancellation fee.

Have us meet your guests/delegates

Getting to the Airport, meeting the flight and waiting for your guest to clear Customs can be very time consuming. This is what we do daily. We employ operations staff to juggle flight delays and variable traffic conditions. If you are pressed for time, we will greet your guests on your behalf saving you the time and hassle. If you are hosting multiple delegates that may be arriving from all parts of Australia or the world, entrust Southern Cross to organise their private transfers to and from Melbourne Airport.

If you have booked an airport transfer limo, you will find your driver at the relevant pick-up point:

Terminal 1 - Qantas Domestic - opposite baggage Carousel 3 at the signposted Chauffeur Meeting Point.
