Good morning all

We are going to Bunbury WA for 6 weeks and don't want to leave our car at the long term park at the airport.



I know this subject of alternate parking came up recently, but I tried a search and couldn't seem to get it to work.

I would be grateful for any help with this matter.

Regards BooBoo

Boo Boo,

I have used the train to get to Sydney Airport and leave the vehicle at home.

Not sure where you are leaving from but this does save the problem of long term parking.

We live in Scone. Most times we can leave our car at the central coast and get one of the kids to take us down, but not this time.

So we thought we had better find a place in sydney to park, other than the airport park.

Google - 0.12 secs. Vehicle Storage Sydney or grab a copy of the Sydney Yellow Pages (available at your local Post Office).

Leave the car at Scone - get yourself to Newcastle (bus/train) and catch the airport shuttle - or why not fly from Newcastle.

From memory to fly from newcastle to perth is via melbourne and it takes about 11 hours.

Getting to newcastle is not a problem. Its the 6hr our wait in melbourne that is the problem and it costs more for that privelige.

Trains from Scone. Well one leaves at about six in the morining and one returns at about 6 at night.

I reread your reply and have rung the happy cabbie in newcastle and can get picked up in newie and dropped at mascot for $252 return for two people.

The long term parking in the mascot area ranged from $420 to $710.

Thanks for your help.

Boo Boo,
Try a limo company you'd be suprised to find out that they don't cost mutch more and you will have a mutch nicer time.
It cost about $360 return from the central cost to the cruise terminal in Sydney for 5 people.
Picks you up at the door or train station in your case loads your luggage drops you off at the door/ Train station and unloads your luggage and you dont have to sit jamed into a Hiace doing loop the loops of newcastle and the central coast next to some bloke with the abola virus. Well worth the extra few bucks.

Second the above suggestion.

Mate and his wife got the plane at Mascot and sat in the van/bus waiting for additional passengers from the next flight, they then got the "Cook's Tour" of Sydney before being dropped off at their home at Mount Pritchard. At the time of night this happened it should have been something like a forty minute trip rather than the hour and and more that it took.

Remember! By the time you fly in to Sydney, collect your baggage etc..; all you will want to do is get straight home, have a snack and hit your own cot.

If your happy cabbie guy is doing a direct run from a single pick up point in the castle and doing the same on the return then I reckon you have a winner.

Might well pay to check just what his itinerary is.

Ian.

Happy cabby does not pick up or drop off in Sydney. The central coast ones don't go near Newcastle and the Newcastle ones may exchange passengers at Karriong but usually goes straight through.

Why dont you hire a car and just drop it off at the airport, you may pay a one way fee or they may have a sydney car they want returned to the airport, cheaper then a cab either way.
All the rental car agencies are opposite the front door of the domestic terminal.
Some of our customers hire a car then hire one of our ferry drivers to drop them off at the airport if they do not want to drive in Sydney.

I use a company called "Park & Fly", they are at Princes Highway, Arncliffe. I have only been away 4-5 days at a time but they charged $15 for the first day and $10 a day thereafter. They drop you off at the airport, in your car, and then when you arrive back you give them a call and he will pick you up in your car, so, no double handling of luggage. I am sure if you have a chat with them they will give a better deal for that amount of time.
Phone No. 9567 0055 or 0430 000 444
Hope this helps,
Mike

This has turned into an interesting and frustrating exercise.

Thanks to keenycruiser I can stay with 'park and stay' for $300 for the six weeks or thanks to Ian and madfisher I could get a rental car from Newcastle one way for $59.

I would need to stay the night in Newie to return the car the following morning after we get back on the 14/4.

So the total cost for rental car, both ways, acommodation and a meal would be all up about $260.

I think we will settle for the park and stay. That way we can be back in our own bed the night we get home.

Thank you all for your thoughts. Next time I will know all my options and won't hve to spend much time on the process.

Regards BooBoo

I live 15min from the airport in Kensington. If you don't mind street parking your more than welcome to park in front and if the timing is right I could drop you off and pick you up. And for this service I will charge the minimal fee of zero, because there is no charge for this service, Your membership here covers all these charges. what can I say.
Feel free to email me. or 0417 678 411

Guys
If you want to, catch a train to Redfern and a taxi from there....its something like $10 to use the railway at the airport. might aswell get a lift to the front door for that.
My uncle left his car and keys in a long term lockup carpark near the airport, and when he got back, it wouldnt start..no water in radiator, no compression in the cylinders....i kid you not, he needed a new motor...dont know what they did.
If it is of any help, you can leave your car at my place and i will drop you at Wollongong station.
Andrew

b4 you bag me out, walk a mile in my shoes, then your a mile away and have my shoes :)

The kids may not be able to take you to the airport - however can you leave your car there, get a taxi to the train and proceed from there?
