Types of transfer
Scheduled Shared Services
An alternative low cost airport transfer service for the budget traveller is the scheduled shared service which is a transfer to or from an airport, usually by bus or coach, following a regular timetable on some or all days of the week, to a fixed destination e.g. a city centre or other central drop-off point.
Passengers using this form of transfer share the coach or bus with other passengers and the departure or arrival is at fixed times.
This service cannot be customized to the traveller's own requirement.
This is a prepaid service and a voucher must be handed to the driver of the coach to be able to use the service.
In a shared transfer, you travel with other passengers who are going to the same destination or in the same direction. You may encounter some waiting time as the driver will have to wait for other passengers who are arriving at the airport at different flight times. The driver can only depart after all the transfer passengers have arrived. A shared transfer service, however, still provides a door to door service. Other passengers may be collected or dropped off either before or after your expected pickup or drop off time. We normally use minibuses for this type of transfer.
In a private transfer, you and your group will travel in a vehicle (car) which will be for your exclusive use only. The service operates similar to that of a private taxi. Your pick up at the hotel, airport or other address will be at times to suit your needs. If you are being met at an airport, the driver will wait for you in the Arrivals Hall with a board showing your name. Private transfers give a door to door service. There is no restriction on the amount of luggage that can be carried subject to available luggage space. An English speaking driver will be provided. In the event of a delay in your flight arrival time, no additional fees will be charged. The type of vehicle (car) we use will be selected to meet the needs of your group and the number of passengers.
If your transfer is for a group of 8 or more persons, you will be entitled to a group price transfer fee. We can offer different size (and types) of buses, depending on the number of passengers that will travel in the group. If you do not see your required destination on our website, please e-mail with the details. We can normally find a solution to any travel destination.
A business transfer is private VIP transfer to/from an airport especially for the business traveller who requires a more luxurious vehicle. The minimum standard of car is the Mercedes E-class and the driver, a chauffeur. This service can be customized to meet your requirements. Please note that pre-payment by credit card is required for every reservation except where the booking is made through an agency. Cash payments cannot be accepted on the day itself.
Transfers by Limousine
The rules covering private transfers are also applicable to transfers by Limousine. We only use luxury cars for these types of transfer. The price all includes free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
A Boat Transfer, also known as a Water Taxi, is a service especially for travellers going to Venice. Similar to a private transfer, the boat transfer takes over when your airport transfer arrives at the centre of Venice and a water taxi is the only way to reach your required destination.
