Especially if you live in Australia.<br /><br />The Mercedes dealership in Melbourne operates a remote location at the airport where you can valet your car while you travel. Drive up to the Mercedes-Benz Melbourne Airport Express dealership and you can drop off your car, have a chauffeur shuttle you to the departures terminal, and when you return, be picked up again at the arrivals terminal, brought back to your washed car - maybe even have it serviced while your gone - and you're on your way.<br /><br />In short, it's like any other valet service, only with more... <em>Merced-ease</em>. But here's where the program really takes off: the dealer has now partnered with Air Melbourne to include helicopter service. So instead of driving to the airport, you drive to the heliport at South Wharf just a few miles from downtown Melbourne, check in for your flight right there, then board one of two new twin-engined Augusta Grand helicopters (not the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/05/18/mercedes-benz-outfits-a-luxury-eurocopter/">Eurocopters outfitted by Mercedes-Benz Style</a>) and fly straight to the airport dealership in just four minutes, then be transferred to the terminal by Mercedes shuttle.<br /><br />Land again at the airport and a Mercedes chauffeur will take you back to the dealer where you'll catch your copter back to South Wharf. All of which doesn't strike us as a bad way to travel. Assuming, that is, you live in (or are traveling to) Melbourne and have more money than time.<p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/05/08/mercedes-benz-melbourne-heli-express-australia/">Mercedes takes off with Heli-Express airport transfer service in Melbourne</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 08 May 2014 07:58:00 EST.
