ordered a taxi to Melbourne airport

cost me 105 AUD, uber even more expensive at 120 AUD...
journey only 50km to the airport and took about 45 mins to reach..

then think back of malaysia, grab drivers really like lembu only get peanut 65 ringgit and most journey to and from KLIA is more than 50+km..

yes but instead they make it so blardy cheap the fare nowadays, borderline almost not worth it to do KLIA.. worse if the returning trip from KLIA send you to Nilai or whatever ulu place which makes you waste a lot of time because of low chance getting back to back jobs after you dropped them off.. but no choice, money is still money although peanuts..

in Melb you really no choice, like it or not you memang have to order uber/taxi if you're 2 people going with 2 check-in and 2 hand carry.

if you're light traveller then maybe got alternative to go to city with SkyBus (20 AUD/person). But if you're going 2 pax already 40 AUD, might as well order uber/taxi to get to the city, only about 45~50 AUD and get a car to yourself instead of cram in a bus.. so in the end, uber/taxi still the superior choice to go with, hence its understood as a traveller you need to "suck it up" as parts and parcel of travelling lah..

but back here in malaysia, people already complain about 65 ringgit fare, think they pay 65 ringgit like buying some premium service/item lol.. on top of that then most will ask the driver to do "extras" like drop them at their block although they mostly put condo guardhouse as destination, which cost the driver another 1~2km and 10mins extra for that fixed 65 ringgit fare...  shakehead.gif  shakehead.gif

only borderline? RM65 fare (RM52 after deduct commission, i.e. what you see in your pocket) for 50+ km to the airport from most places in PJ and northern parts of KL. But no matter how cheap....most drivers don't ever put KLIA in their avoid location list.

FYI we also have our own SkyBUS to the airport. only RM 15 (and RM8 if you are a senior 50+ person) from some very popular shopping malls (1 Utama, Paradigm, KL Sentral).

uhh yes i know that.. my point was that the SkyBus in melbourne is only good if you are alone 1 person or if 2 person travelling very light (i.e 1 hand-carry luggage/person). if anything more than that you might as well order an uber straight to your destination only..

so with that in mind, people usually travelling to/from melbourne airport already know that they need to spend on uber/taxi..
airport go to city (less than 25 km ONLY) already cost about 40~50 AUD.. airport to other further suburbs, say 50km away will cost about 100~120 AUD already..

but for KLIA, you go where also since the drop off range is so fucking big, still rm65 fixed fare.. but yet people ordering grab always got this mentality thinking their 65 bucks they paying is very big and they deserve to get some premium service, anything less and they unhappy with you..

In case you didn't know long ago the fare to KLIA is in between 85 - 105, if you drive Uber max can get around 150+ , those were the good old days , no long queue

It’s nuts that grab normalized the idea of fixed rm65 fare anywhere in kv to klia. Then again it’s also nuts that drivers willingly accept these 50+ km go airport jobs for $52 net.

Also a lot of those genting drivers up there...took private job to go up.

Close proximity in enclosed air conditioned car would increased the risk of getting Toyota Coronavirus. sweat.gif

Unknown to many, hands on transmission touch on surface areas can infectious. shocking.gif

Just too risky to grab riders even with shark fin fares. hmm.gif
