Travel times from Perth Airport to Scarborough

Travel times are the most important part of any holiday or business schedule. That’s why our drivers have an on-time guarantee: they will be there at the agreed time or earlier. To help you plan your trip with similar precision, here’s what you can expect in terms of travel times to Scarborough. On average, the trip only takes about 37 minutes. Thankfully, Perth isn’t known for its congestion so even in peak hour the trip rarely takes longer than 50 minutes. Off peak, it’s usually a 30 minute journey, so if time is of the essence we would suggest aiming to travel in an off peak period.

Perth Airport – Getting around

Perth Airport has four terminals, each of which services a different section of travellers. There’s an international terminal, which is divided into two levels: departures and arrivals. Then there are separate terminals for Qantas and Virgin flights. And finally, there’s a terminal for budget carrier, and regional airlines. Regardless of which terminal you find yourself in, there will be no shortage of dining, shopping, and entertainment facilities for you to occupy yourself with. There are also transit facilities, which vary from terminal to terminal, but include innovative sleeping pods, duty-free pharmacies, postal services, and showers. The facilities aren’t limited to inside the terminals, either. Outside, there’s an abundance of pick up, drop off, parking, and waiting areas, all in close proximity to the terminals. That means you won’t need to walk far to get to your car, and you certainly won’t need to go far to find your transfer.
