Please ensure you read the cancellation and sanitation charges prior to booking.

By choosing AMQ Tours as your preferred transport service any accepted bookings are subject to the terms and conditions as outlined below. By confirming your booking with us, you are also accepting the following terms and conditions:


Prices provided are valid for up to 1 (one) month at the time of quotation and are subject to vehicle availability. Prices quoted are all inclusive of 10% GST and are calculated in Australian dollars. As is the case for any fares, fees or charges, the onus is on the payer to seek a quotation prior to accepting the quote.

Airport arrivals

AMQ Tours monitors all flight arrival times to ensure that your chauffeur is at the terminal when you disembark. Regardless of how long your flight is delayed, normal waiting periods commence from ACTUAL flight arrival time and NOT the scheduled arrival time.

AMQ Tours provides 30 (thirty) minutes complimentary wait time for Domestic Arrivals and up to 1 (one) hour for International Arrivals.

Please note once your international flight has landed, for economy class passengers your driver will enter the airport half an hour (30 minutes) after your plane has landed and wait for you at the bottom of the escalators. For business class passengers your driver will enter the airport 15 (fifteen) minutes after your plane has landed and will be waiting immediately outside of the international area. For all incoming flights our driver will be waiting for you with a digital name sign.

Please remain inside of the international area until your driver has been located. In the event your plane is early you will also need to remain in this area.

Point to point transfers

Unless a specific duration of waiting time has been pre-booked, AMQ Tours can not guarantee the availability of a booked car/driver beyond the original booked pick-up time.

AMQ Tours provides 10 (ten) minutes complimentary wait time and will endeavor to contact you if you have not yet arrived. Your Chauffeur will wait a further 5 (five) minutes before considering the booking a “No Show”. You are required to contact us by phone if extra waiting time is required otherwise additional charges may apply.

Note: “No shows” will be charged a minimum $100 cancellation fee and may vary based on the service originally booked.

AMQ Tours requests a minimum 2 (two) hours for ANY amendments made to bookings to avoid additional charges which will be made and charged at our discretion.

Should you wish to ‘amend’ your agreed pickup time(s) we will do our best to fulfill this for you but may not be able to do so if it clashes with another booking. Our office (or driver) will advise should this be the case and whether we can come to an agreed alternative pickup time. Should we not be able to accommodate this we will need to charge you for the booked transfer regardless of whether the trip was fulfilled.

Should a refund need to be issued, AMQ Tours may retain any other fees charged. These costs may be charged either entirely or partially, regardless of whether travel has commenced with AMQ Tours
