To and from Kingsford Smith (SYD) airport

Update: we've now got complete Uber guide to Sydney Airport, which lists these tips and more.

Aside from UberASSIST, all Uber services travel to and from Kingsford Smith airport. A trip to the airport from Sydney's CBD will typically set you back around $43 for UberX and $88 for UberBLACK.

If you do opt for taking an Uber to or from the airport, consider the following tips:

Know your terminals and signs

At Sydney airport's domestic terminal, your Uber driver will need to pick you up (or drop you off) from the Priority Pick-up Zone, which can be found by following the green signs between T2 and T3.

For the international terminal, you will need to follow the yellow signs.

Leave plenty of time before your flight

As with a taxi, your Uber will only know about your trip once it's been requested and the driver may even need to finish a job before coming to get you. It's recommended that you leave a little more time to accommodate for your ride being processed.

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      On an UberX, your fare will be around A$41-54. Please note that these are estimates only and do not reflect variations due to discounts, traffic delays or other factors. Flat rates and minimum fares may apply. Actual Rider fares may vary. You can get the most accurate pricing on the exact day or booking using the Uber app.

      Please send me a message if you need anything else.

      Cheers,
      Joel

      Hello Phi,

      As we are a comparison website, we may not be able to compute how much exactly would it cost from Bonnyrigg Heights to Mascott International Airport. Generally, the cost would vary depending on the Uber type you’ll take. In the list above, UberX and UberAssist have generally lower rates which range from $73 to $94.

      Below is the breakdown of the fare:

      *Base fare – $2.50
      *Every minute – $0.40
      *Succeeding KM – $1.45
      *Booking fee – $0.55

      The minimum fare is $9.00 and cancellation fee of $10.00. I also suggest that you contact Uber to confirm your possible fare.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out to us again if you have additional questions.

      Cheers,
      Ash
