Ola pick-up zones at Melbourne airport
You'll be able to find Ola at Melbourne Airport (Tullamarine). Luckily it's super easy to make your way to the pick-up spot as domestic and international share the same Ola pick-up zone. For those of you who will arrive through terminals 1, 2 or 3, you will be able to find the rideshare pick-up right outside the exit.
If you are landing in terminal 4 then take the lift in the T4 carpark up to the level 2 pick-up area. We recommend collecting your bags first and then figuring out what type of ride will suit your requirements.
There is also a $4.54 airport pick-up charge for sedans and $4.53 for SUVS, which is automatically included in your estimate.
