Airport transfer types to suit all budgets
Share the vehicle with other passengers with similar flights & destinations.
One of the most cost effective and efficient ways of getting to the resort.
Similar to a shared transfer, except this runs to a set timetable, so you're required to book a service that works for your flight times.
Generally not door-to-door but cheaper.
Book a driver and vehicle for your sole use.
No sharing with others, no waiting at the airport and a direct door-to-door service, with no additional stops en route.
Similar to a private transfer the only difference is that it is using a larger vehicle.
Perfect for larger groups wanting to travel together.
Exec & Limousine
Enjoy vehicles such as a top-of-the-range Mercedes minivan or an S-Class Mercedes limousine.
