Best Options To Get To Sydney Airport With Kids

By: Phoebe Ackland, ellaslist

The traffic, the crazy parking costs, the chaos of taxis… airport drop offs and pick ups are nothing short of a nightmare. We consulted with mums across Sydney, and here are the top responses for affordable, efficient and kid-friendly ways to get to Sydney Airport on your next family holiday.

Ladies Running Errands: This Balmain-based business provides the extra family member you need for airport drop-offs, and parties and daycare appointments too! They service families in Rozelle, The CBD & surrounding suburbs, Inner West, Eastern Suburbs and the North Shore with child seats securely fitted for babies and kids of all ages. Affordable, and much more stylish and personable than getting a taxi. Visit their website, or call 0412 438 635.


Bubs Taxi: The most family-friendly taxi service around. Cars are equipped with up to 3 child seats suitable for newborns through to 7-year-olds. Bookings are allocated to drivers the night before rather than 10 minutes before, and when you call them, you are handled by a person, not a machine! They also provide a car-fitting service, available to help fit child restraints in your vehicle. Their motto is “safe, reliable and stress-free.” Visit their website or call 1300 884 524.

Lime Taxis: Order a Lime Taxi online and request the kind of seat you need- all wagons carry a seat.

Drive There Yourself: For short stays, you could drive to the airport yourself and use Blue Emu Parking- open air and shaded parking available. Three days costs around $74.

Uber: To request an Uber car seat, just tap the ‘car seat’ option after you select ‘UberX’ as your vehicle type. Ubers are much cheaper than taxis, more stylish, and the surcharge for adding a car seat is $10.

Joey’s Airport Shuttlz: If you’re travelling from the Eastern Suburbs to the overseas passenger terminal or vice versa, try Joey’s shuttle service where “FAMILIES R US”. Joey will handle heavy bags, and has rear and forward facing car seats available. Call 1300 456 397 to speak to a real person.
