Sydney Airport to Parramatta: Getting Picked up at the Airport

When you arrive at Sydney, you can expect to experience the hustle and bustle of Australia’s largest airport. Luckily, despite the large number of passengers, pick-ups and drop offs are easy. At the international terminal, you can go to the express pick up section, in P9 car park. Here, there is 15 minutes’ free waiting on offer. For departing passengers, simply travel to the departures level, where you will find plenty of kerbside spaces, including some for disabled passengers.

The domestic terminals have blue emu, express, and priority pick up sections, as well as kerbside spaces. Blue Emu is located offsite, so you’ll have to allow for some travel time in between the park and terminal. Express pick up is an 8-minute walk from the terminal, and priority pick up is just four minutes away – but it does cost the most, beginning at $4. Drop offs are easier still, with kerbside spaces on offer at the departures level. All three of the terminals that comprise Sydney airport are equipped with free Wi-Fi. They also have fantastic retail and dining facilities, so you won’t find yourself short of opportunities.

Other Transport Options: Sydney Airport to Parramatta

Of course, Sydney airport has an abundance of transport options on offer. However, if you compare their prices and service to that of Car Australia, you will find that we offer the best value for money and unrivalled service.

Airport Trains: Cheaper than a Sydney Airport to Parramatta Taxi Fare

Airport trains are a great form of public transport; they are not affected by traffic and they run very reliably. However, travelling from Sydney airport to Parramatta on the train is likely to take a considerable amount of time. It will also involve changing at Central Station. With heavy luggage, this can be quite burdensome – especially after a long flight. Further, if you are travelling in a group, you will find that a shuttle from Car Australia equates to a similar or even cheaper price per person.

Taxi From Sydney Airport to Parramatta

All of the terminals in Sydney airport are serviced by efficient taxi ranks. But even the most efficient ranks fall victim to rush hour traffic. As a result, the queues get long and waiting times can reach as long as half an hour. When you reach your taxi, it is unlikely to have the cleanliness and luxuriousness of a chauffeured car from Car Australia as well. And ultimately, you stand to save little more than 20% on your fare. With Car Australia, you get a luxury vehicle, door-to-door service and a professional chauffeur, as well as the option to choose from our range of shuttle buses and people movers.

Buses and Airport Shuttles: Parramatta

As with most airports, Sydney airport is regularly serviced by buses and shuttles. Private shuttle companies like Con-X-ion run frequent services, and there are scheduled buses for even less. However, these services stop for all passengers on board, which means they lack the precision and efficiency of Car Australia. Our shuttle services are direct and private, so you and your group can enjoy comfort and luxury, for a similar price.
