Private Melbourne chauffeur driver

Could anyone please recommend a driver/chauffeur to take us from Ringwood to Melbourne airport in April?

We will also need 2 car seats a total of 2 adults and 2 kids (2&4yrs)

Lots of companies out there but would like a reliable one!

We did use a company last year that was very expensive and changed his price once in the car!

Thanks in advance for advice

Melbourne Cabs have a pre-booked 'Business Class Service' which is fantastic with kids. Very personable, set price, great communication and very reliable - http://www.melbournecabs.com.au/

Alternately, choose like the biggest limousine fleet in Australia, like Astra Limousines - http://www.astralimousines.com.au

I've used Barton's for years. Always good service.

Also ... I don't believe a hire car has to provide child seats ... certainly a taxi doesn't so a hire car probably doesn't as well.

Has anyone used Skylimos before? A lot cheaper than others

Just letting people know not to use Flemington Chauffeurs Cars, we booked them & they didn't turn up. They did not even return our 2 calls from airport! This was after 1 phone call & 2 confirmed emails a week prior to arrival. Never again! We will use Dez Limos who are a great chauffeur service.

Try Envirofleet transfers/chauffeurs - http://www.envirofleet.com.au

They have a variety of luxury hybrid Lexus cars and are eco-friendly. Every time we've used them they've been very professional, reliable and friendly guys, and good on price...
