For Geelong based families, Avalon airport is a god send, but only if you want to travel domestically with one carrier. Otherwise, we have to trek it up to Tullermarine and the combination of distance, flight times, parking and/or bus transfer times can make things stressful and expensive. I’ve teamed up with Murrell Group, a Geelong based transport company who has operated in North Geelong for the last 50+ years to showcase how they can help with not just airport transfers, but trips to concerts in Melbourne, winery tours around our region and much more.
Murrell Group has a huge range of cars and limousines for every and any occasion, whether it be a business trip to the airport early in the morning or a girls night out to Melbourne.
Starting from $310 return for a Toyota Camry “Execucar’ to Melbourne Airport, to a 24 seater van at $830 return (which would be 50% cheaper than the shuttle bus per person, and you can leave and return with your personal driver at any time you wish!), right through to tailored winery tours, Murrell Group can be of service. Services to the city for a night out would be slightly cheaper than this, as there isn’t any airport parking to pay. (All mini buses include a luggage trailer at no extra cost).
Winery tours (obviously my favourite!) are such a winner because you have your own driver who waits at each winery for you, while you go and enjoy yourself without having to be on a ‘tour’. Murrell Group have been offering these tours for a very long time, so they’re extremely knowledgable on the wine and food lists and can help tailor make a tour for you, at no extra cost. The bus tours start at around $30 per person and include 4 wineries in 5 hours. Such a great idea for a hens/birthday/weekend with your friends!
The main points I love about Murrell Group is
- Supporting a local business over a larger impersonal brand.
- The quality service. All of their cars are clean, serviced, come with a professional chauffeur and pick you up from your desired location with no fuss.
- Price points for groups and young families – if you compare the prices from Murrell Group to a Taxi or an Uber for these long distances, Murrell Group comes out on top every time.
