FAQ: How to Save Money in Melbourne with Klook – Review

Melbourne is one of the world’s most liveable cities – but it’s also a pretty expensive place to live and visit.

Thankfully Klook can help you with discounts and exclusive deals for lots of attractions in Melbourne and popular tourist destinations in Regional Victoria.

Pre-purchasing tickets also saves you time – and if you’re visiting Melbourne then organising things like airport transfers and local SIM cards ahead of time can save you stress too.

I love, and regularly use, Klook. That’s why I’m also an affiliate for them – so I can share all the benefits of Klook far and wide!

I first discover Klook when we are travelling in Tokyo. Since then have used Klook to save money travelling to Hong Kong, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and London.

Here are my best tips on how to save money travelling in and around Melbourne with Klook.

Discount Melbourne Airport Transfers

A taxi from Melbourne Airport to Melbourne CBD can cost an arm and a leg – so a better airport transfer option is to catch the Skybus. It’s a 24/7 bus service between Melbourne Tullamarine Airport and Melbourne City, Southbank Docklands, St Kilda and Ringwood. Using Klook you can book an open-dated Skybus ticket and skip the line.

Skybus Melbourne

Klook also has tickets for Avalon Airport Skybus transfers to Melbourne City, shared private Melbourne Airport transfer to Melbourne City, or private Melbourne Airport transfer to Melbourne City. I book a private airport transfer with a van for my family of 4 and our luggage from Footscray to Melbourne Airport for approximately $60 one way, less than the cost of a taxi or for airport parking.
