Limo or Car Service in Sydney?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever used and can recommend a car or limo service to pick up at the Sydney airport and transport to hotel, and then also  pick up from seaport (Circular Quay) to airport?  While a taxi would be ok, I prefer to not stress about catching a taxi from the seaport to the airport and making it there on time.

If you can roll your luggage , I would just take the train.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I think we'll have too much luggage to roll, since we doing a pre-stay at a hotel, and then a 12 day cruise.

Lots of shuttles and taxis at the airport, I’ve not used a car se4vice in Sydney, but google will give you a ton to choose from.

How are the supposed stress levels differed or reduced by paying twice as much for a different vehicle ? There are uncountable taxis and Uber's at both the airport and the OPT.

Sorry I read it airport to cruise you want the other way, there will be more taxis than you can poke a stick at, just waiting at the terminal, easier to find and less stress than a hirecar

I usually always hire a car when I travel. I like having someone there waiting for me with a sign, so I can go straight to that person and go,  and not have to wait in line for a taxi.

I only bother with that in countries where taxi's are unreliable or Uber is banned. Australia is a thriving first world nation.

Uber was very efficient when we disembarked at the OPT a couple of months ago. We waited until we had exited the terminal to book and the Uber was there in less than five minutes - and half of that time was getting to us through the OPT traffic.
