Do you need to travel to and from the airport? In that case, there are lots of options that you could select from. In most cases, it is seen that people go for car hire rather than Melbourne airport pickup service. This is because they think that doing this would give them a lot more freedom and flexibility. Little do they know that when it comes to car hire, there are a lot more factors that they are responsible for. At the same time, there are a lot of liabilities to be dealt with as well. You can be sure that these would drive you crazy no matter how cold-headed you are in real life.

Chances of getting lost 

This is probably the first benefit that you get with services such as Ringwood airport taxi service as opposed to when you hire a car on your own. In cities, where you have no experience of living for a sufficient period, there is always a chance that you could get lost in the streets due to some reason or the other. This is especially true when you are visiting the city for the first time. This can happen when you have just got down from a hectic and long flight.

Fuel is expensive (no doubt) 

This is common knowledge. There is perhaps no place in the world where you get gas at a reasonable price these days. One of the biggest problems of hiring a car for a self drive is that you have to pay for the gas yourself as well. The service providers, in this case, would always expect that when you give the car back to them the tank would be full. However, this is not something that you would have to worry about in case of airport transfers. In these cases you pay based on the distance that you have covered.

Avoiding the frustration of driving 

If you are someone who does not like getting stuck in a traffic jam, especially after a long flight or while heading to the airport you should give hiring cars for self drive a miss. This is especially true when you have just landed in Australia after flying from halfway across the globe. In such a situation the last thing you would want to face is traffic nuisance and blocked roads. After all, you are completely exhausted. 

Car parking

This is also one of the major problems of hiring a car for the self drive from or to the airport, especially in a foreign city. The parking system could be completely different from what you are used to in your own country, and that could leave you befuddled for sure. It could be that you are going to your hotel, but your hotel may not have such a facility in the first place. Even in cases where hotels offer such a facility they would charge 50 dollars on an average per night. That is a lot of money, better spent elsewhere.
