Net Safety Score
We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.
20 minute gap between transfers
Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.
Regular Car Sanitisation
Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol
When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.

We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

Directions for your Cairns Airport Transfer Downtown
Cairns Airport is the seventh busiest in Australia, and interestingly, is now a privately owned international airport. Once owned by the Cairns Port Authority, the airport was sold to a private entity at the end of 2008. The airport is conveniently located just 6 km from the city centre, so taking an airport shuttle to Cairns shouldn’t take longer than 7 minutes.
After exiting the airport compound, your driver will head west on Airport Avenue and take the 3rd exit on the roundabout to stay on Airport Avenue. They will then turn left onto Lake Street, which they will follow for around 1 km, before reaching another roundabout. Here, your driver will take the 3rd exit onto Lily Street, before taking one final left onto National Route 1. This road will lead you to the centre of Cairns.

The total cost of your airport shuttle in Cairns will be around €20 (AUD 30), but if you’d prefer a fixed rate fare that won’t change, you can pre-book with Welcome Pickups.
