Cairns Airport Transport Options

Option 1 : Book With Airport Transfers Cairns

What exactly is a Private Airport Transfer Service?

The Airport Transfer Service is a form of transportation which takes you from the airport to your accommodation, and back again once your trip comes to an end. A private airport transfer service is often the easiest, most reliable and a stress free option to get you and your travelling companions to and from the airport. This transportation service can be booked via the phone or online to suit individual requirements.

Read below for the limitations of the other Cairns Airport transport options.

Option 2 : CatchingA Taxi To Anywhere In The Cairns Region

Taking a taxi is one of the most common methods of transport after arriving at Cairns Airport. It seems like the easiest option, however, it is expensive and there can be a considerable wait in the line (up to 40 minutes).

The taxi fare from Cairns Airport to the main part of town is around $30, more if you get stuck in traffic. The price is the same regardless of how many people are in the taxi. A standard taxi takes 4 people. A single traveller pays the same as a group.

For larger groups, 8-seater minivan taxis are available for a greater cost, however, such taxis often need to be pre-arranged. If you phone for one on arrival there may be a long wait which could end up with you and your travel group missing out on sight-seeing time.

Tips when catching a taxi from the Cairns International Airport:
1) Use the bathroom before you head outside to the taxi queue.
2) Get in the taxi queue as soon as possible to shorten the waiting period.
3) Catch the taxi, but remember there are no guarantees regarding the cleanliness of the taxi or the driver’s skills.

Option 3 : Catching An Uber To Anywhere In The Cairns Region

Catching an Uber has started to become a more common method of transport for people travelling to and from the airport. It’s easy to order a ride, however, you’ll need to have Uber app already installed on your phone with an account & debit or credit card set up. An Uber fare can be cheaper than your standard taxi fare, but they can also be pricey if surcharging is in effect. During peak busy periods, Uber fares can sometimes cost passengers up to 4x the normal rates. Check the cost before you ordering to avoid a nasty surprise at the end of your journey.

Cairns only has the option of the regular Uber service (Uber X) which can only fit up to 4 passengers and usually a very limited luggage capacity, depending on the type and size of car your Uber driver is using. For any group larger than 4 passengers or if you have larger amounts of luggage you won’t be able to travel in an Uber.

Tips when catching an Uber from Cairns Airport:
1) Use the bathroom before you head outside as you can be waiting for an unknown time, especially in peak periods.
2) Order your Uber as soon as possible to avoid longer waiting times and possible increased surcharge.
3) Catch the Uber, but remember there are no guarantees regarding the driver and safety so always be aware.

Option 4 : Shuttle Service - Catching A Shuttle To Anywhere In The Cairns Region

Catching a shuttle bus is a common method of transport after arriving at Cairns Airport. It seems like the cheapest option, and sometimes it is, but boy, it takes the better part of the day to get to your destination, if they even go there…
The shuttle fare from Cairns Airport to Port Douglas for example. Between $37 and $55 per person – the price is the same regardless of how many people you are travelling together with. You start by waiting up to 2 hours to leave the airport (timed or once the bus is full), and then it continues by stopping off at lots of suburbs and different accommodations along the way for other people you’ve found yourself inadvertantly travelling with. Add to that potential travel sickness from getting whisked around those beautiful Port Douglas Road bends in a medium size bus by a driver who is on a timetable and you have the potential for a great start or end to you stay.

Tips when catching a shuttle bus from the Cairns Airports:
1) Use the bathroom before you head outside to the shuttle queue.
2) Wait up to two hours for the bus to leave.
3) Catch the shuttle with lots of people and get lots of unwanted stops along the way, all eating into your precious sight-seeing time.
4) Remember there are no guarantees regarding the cleanliness of the bus or the driver’s skills.

Many of our clients have commented – “We caught the shuttle… Never again!”
