Journey: Sydney Airport To Ultimo

The trip from Sydney airport to Ultimo is a pretty easy one. Both are located on the south side of Sydney city, and there is only about 6km separating them. However, the trip can very easily become time-consuming or uncomfortable if you choose the wrong transport. Public transport and taxis are always a good option, but when you’re travelling with luggage the extra walking can be problematic.

With Car Australia, on the other hand, you get door-to-door service at any time of the day or night. This means that you won’t need to lug heavy bags from one pick up point to another. Simply book with Car Australia and enjoy comfortable and convenient service.
