Located within the suburb of Mascot resides Australia’s largest airport by all metrics, Sydney Airport. Strathfield is a predominantly residential suburb in Sydney’s west and a journey between the two should take around 20 minutes in fair conditions. Strathfield can be easily reached by car, public transport and ride-share services. While public transport is ideal for keeping costs down, there are a few drawbacks to consider. Only one public transport line from the airport into Strathfield is direct, as the rest require changeovers, and the journey time is also significantly longer than other options. If you’re looking for a solution that maximises on efficiency while also cutting out hefty meter charges, and long wait times, there’s one option that stands out from the rest; Car Australia. A private transfer with Car Australia is the most convenient and reliable option on the market, offering modern and climate-controlled vehicles for your ultimate comfort.

Navigating Sydney Airport

Sydney Airport oversees the vast majority of Australia’s domestic and international travel. Comprised of three passenger terminals, T1 is Sydney’s dedicated international terminal and T2 and T3 house all domestic flights. Sydney Airport was designed to accommodate the large hordes of travellers it receives each year and is fairly easy to navigate. However, we strongly recommend getting to know your itinerary and associated terminal before arriving, as the airport is known to get crowded and can be a little overwhelming, especially for first-time guests.

In order to take this hassle out of the equation, your Car Australia transfer will see you dropped off directly at the doors of your corresponding terminal for maximum convenience. An additional benefit of choosing Car Australia is our meet-and-greet service. Passengers will be met inside the terminals by their drivers before promptly being shown to their awaiting vehicle. The meeting points for travellers are at the associated baggage carrousel of your flight if you’ve flown domestic or inside the arrival halls for international flights. For those opting to drive themselves, there are plenty of short and long-stay car parks at each terminal as well as kerbside express zones and disabled parking bays.
