Travellers arriving into Sydney Airport's domestic terminals will have to dig a little deeper when it comes to paying for an UberX ride to the office or home.
A new Priority Pick-up area, now open near the T2 and T3 terminals, will see ride-share drivers from the likes of UberX and Go Car paying a $4 fee in order to enter and hover in the zone for up to 15 minutes.
That fee will double to $8 for a 15-30 minute stay, then jump to $20.40 for up to an hour.
Those fees will be charged to the driver's eTag and passed on to passengers at the end of the ride.
The same charges will apply to drivers picking up friends or colleagues, should they also choose to use the Priority Pick-up zone instead of the more distance Express Pick-up area – which is free for the first 15 minutes before charges kick in.
There's no change to pickup arrangements for HC-plated Uber Black rides at the domestic or international terminals.
