This guide equips you, whether you have a connecting flight in a few hours or a full day to spare, to transform your wait into an unforgettable Melbourne adventure. With JODOGO by your side, navigating MEL and venturing into the heart of Melbourne becomes effortless, ensuring you maximize your layover and experience a taste of Melbourne's unique spirit.

Layover Logistics: Planning for a Smooth Melbourne Stopover

Layover Logistics: Planning for a Smooth Melbourne Stopover

Before embarking on your Aussie exploration, let's get strategic.

  1. Layover Length: Knowing your layover duration is key. Factor in immigration, customs (particularly for international arrivals), and security checks to calculate your exploration window. Generally, layovers exceeding 4 hours offer comfortable exploration time outside the airport, especially with JODOGO's efficient meet and greet services.
  2. Visa Considerations: Depending on your nationality and layover duration, you may be eligible for a visa-free entry or visa on arrival. Check Australia's visa requirements beforehand. JODOGO can assist you with navigating visa complexities and obtaining any necessary documentation.
  1. Transportation: Melbourne boasts a well-connected public transportation system. Download the PTV app (Public Transport Victoria) beforehand to purchase Myki cards, granting access to the efficient trains, trams, and buses. JODOGO can assist you with navigating the system and purchasing tickets. However, navigating unfamiliar public transportation with limited time can be tricky. Consider pre-booking a JODOGO private transfer for a stress-free journey into the city.
