Northern Beaches Airport Shuttle: Car Australia

The Northern Beaches are located about an hour’s drive north of the Sydney CBD. So what are your transport options? Public transport is quite active in Sydney, so there is always likely to be a series of trains or buses that you can catch. But what if you are travelling in a group? Group travel makes public transport far more difficult. Trying to keep track of your group as you transfer from bus to train and walk between stations is challenging to say the least. Fortunately, Car Australia has the perfect solution: a Northern Beaches airport shuttle. This is an airport shuttle like no other; you can book it exclusively for you and your group. It is perfect for work groups, recreational groups and even families.

Airport Information: Airport Shuttle Northern Beaches Sydney

Navigating as a large group can sometimes be a challenge. But Sydney airport is well signed and it has a layout that is easy to follow. In terms of pick up and drop off points, you have a few options. If you are travelling internationally, there is a drop off point on the departures level of T1. Here, you can also find disability spaces. For pick ups, you can use the express pick, which is identifiable by yellow signs and located in the car park of T1.

The domestic airport, on the other hand, has two terminals. As a result, it has even more drop off and pick up options on offer. There are drop off zones on the departure levels of both terminals. For collections, there are three main options: priority pick up, express pick and blue emu pick up. Priority pick up is the closest, but you will need an e-Tag to pay the fee. Express is the next closest, and blue emu is offsite. To get between the terminals and blue emu pick up zone, simply catch the shuttle bus that departs every fifteen minutes or so.

Northern Beaches Shuttle: Information About the Area

The Northern Beaches covers a few suburbs and one of the most notable is Manly. Home to beautiful beaches, and the Manly Sea Eagles, it is one of the most popular Northern Beaches destinations.

To make sure that you and your group can make the most of it, our Northern Beaches shuttle can collect you from any point of your choosing.

Finding transport options from the airport to the Northern Beaches can be hard when you’re travelling in a group. Most transport services offer a one-size fits all approach. Often, such an approach fails to take into account the needs of you and your group. But with Car Australia, you get service that is centred on your needs. We have comfortable, well-maintained vehicles and a private Northern Beaches shuttle. You will save a great deal of time by not stopping to collect extra passengers as you go. And for an affordable price, you can’t go wrong!

When you book a Northern Beaches airport shuttle with Car Australia, you are booking a private airport transfer service. This means that you and your group will be taken to and from a destination of your choosing. It is not like a public bus; instead, it is an exclusive shuttle aimed at providing comfortable transport for your group and your group alone.

The Northern Beaches are a popular destination. As a result, there are numerous transport options. The most obvious is public transport, but that presents serious logistical problems when it comes to group travel. Another option is a hire car. But hire cars are not always suitable for group transport either. They are relatively expensive and not always easy to drive – especially if you have booked a large people mover or coach. Parking such a vehicle is going to be hard, to say the least. Instead, you should book a Northern Beaches airport shuttle with Car Australia, and have us manage the logistics for you.
