What if my flight is delayed?
We track your flight number to ensure our driver is there to meet you at the terminal upon your arrival if the flight is no later than 30 minutes

If your flight is later than 30 minutes your driver may have to leave to fulfill their next transfer

If your driver cannot wait management rework our roster for that day to get our next available driver to pick you up after your plane does land

Sunshine Coast Private Transfers has 7 eight seat vehicles so can usually get another driver to you within 45 minutes of your actual landing time if delayed

  • 45 minutes after your late plane lands is more like 20 minutes by the time you alight and collect your luggage

One of the advantages of booking via bigger operators is that we have the driver network to deal with contingencies like this that occur daily

What if my flight is cancelled?
Don’t worry! Just let us know as soon as you can and we will have another driver at the airport to pick you up when you finally land
