ANY QUESTIONS?

Do you provide child seats?

Yes. When requesting a quote online you can select the number of rear facing, forward facing and booster child seats you require and our driver will arrive at your pickup location with them installed.

What information do I need in order to book?
  • You need the following information to request a quote
    • Pickup Location: Airport, Resort or Sunshine Coast address
    • Drop-Off Location: Your drop off address
    • Pickup Date & Time: If being picked up from the airport this will be your flight arrival time
    • Return Pickup Date & Time: If returning to an airport you need to allow enough time to arrive at the airport one hour before your departure time for domestic flights or two hours before departure time for international flights

    • Flight Times: Time of arrival or departure from the airport
When getting a quote should I include small kids as passengers?
Yes our ride types only have a certain number of seats and luggage space. Kids in child seats take up one of these seats so we absolutely need to know they are a part of your traveling party or else our drivers won’t be able to fit you all in.
Can I book a transfer with more than one stop?

YES. When you get to the checkout page in the cart we have an extras table that includes;

  • 2nd pickup / drop-off location (within 7.5km radius of the travel route) for $10
  • 3rd pickup / drop-off location (within 7.5km radius of the travel route) for $10

Select either a 2nd or 3rd pickup / drop-off location as an extra (in the online cart). If the distance of an additional pickup / drop off location is greater than 7.5km (from departing our travel route to getting back on route). Our support staff adds $1.50 p/km beyond the first 7.5km to your booking (using Google maps). We will email your adjusted booking confirmation the same day we receive the booking.

What luggage entitlement will I have?
Luggage entitlements are the same as airlines. One checked bag (20kg Max) and one carry on bag per passenger

Luggage entitlements are dramatically enhanced if booking our larger vehicles with a luggage trailer

Multiple large suitcases, bikes, strollers, surfboards and golf bags are catered for by different vehicle types

When you do a quote input the number of passengers and luggage in your travelling party. We only quote for the vehicles that cover your needs

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
Where will I meet the driver when I arrive?

How do I confirm my return pickup time?
Login to our client portal to access your booking data.

What time will you pick me up for my flight departure?

For Domestic flights you should be at the airport a minimum 1 hour before departure.

For International flights you should be at the airport a minimum 2 hours before departure.

It’s best to use Google maps to find out how long it will take to get from your pick up location to the airport you are departing from…then add on the time you need to be at the airport before your departure.

These recommendations do not allow for unforeseen time delays like traffic congestion en-route.

You are welcome to add additional safety minutes to the booking form.

How do I cancel my booking?
Your booking confirmation email has a cancel button at the bottom of it. As long as you cancel more than 24 hours before your pickup time there are no penalties.
