How do I get started with DiDi?
DiDi pick-up zones at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport
DiDi is available at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport. To accommodate it there are dedicated pick-up spots to help you locate your driver. All airport pick-ups incur a rideshare access fee of $4.48, which is automatically added to your DiDi fare.
Meeting your driver depends on which terminal you've arrived in.
Passengers flying into Terminals 1, 2 or 3 should follow the "Rideshare" signs to the Rideshare Pick-up lane outside T2 between the bus stop and the short-term parking lot.
Passengers flying into Terminal 4 need to get to Level 2 inside the T4 Ground Transport Hub to be picked up.
Here's how to request a driver once you're at the pick-up spot:
- Open the app
- Pick the right terminal departure location
- Choose the best ride option to fit all passengers and your luggage
- Tap "Request"
DiDi pick-up zones at Melbourne Avalon Airport
Avalon Airport is the closest airport to Geelong and a popular airport for low-cost flights to and from Australia.
The airport has rideshare pick-up bays located to your left as you leave the terminal.
To request a driver, open the DiDi app, find your location and tap "Request".
DiDi currently has two ride options in Melbourne and rates vary depending on your chosen option.
DiDi Express is your choice for everyday rides and can accommodate up to four passengers. DiDi Max is available for riders who need a bit more space or have a group of up to six passengers.
Ride fares are made up of a base rate, distance and time rates and tolls, surcharges and fees.
Dynamic pricing (or surge pricing) can apply when there is a higher demand, during peak hour traffic or when there are fewer drivers available. You'll be notified of any increase at the time of booking before you decide to ride.
