Airport shuttles are typically vans that take several groups at once, dropping off at various hotels and transport hubs, or picking up at scheduled times on the way to the airport.
A private transfer is a vehicle booked for you only. They vary from simple, clean cars to luxury limousines.
The main benefit of a shuttle is the cheaper price. Private rides are faster and more comfortable. If you’re in a group, private airport transfers are usually better value for money.
At some airports, hotel shuttle booking is possible when you arrive. You’ll usually need to know which shuttle company and route your destination is on, although help is sometimes available. Depending on the airport, this can be very simple or very confusing…
Shuttles from a hotel to the airport can usually be booked through your hotel, although you may be charged a significant mark up on the normal price. It’s always worth comparing prices.
Forget worry, stress, shopping around, and payment/currency issues by booking ahead of time using Jayride
Some hotels offer free back-and-forth airport transfers for guests, so ask them before booking a paid shuttle service. Make sure it’s an exclusive direct airport shuttle, or you might be better off in a private airport shuttle service, especially if you’re traveling in a group.
Costs vary enormously depending on the company, the type of vehicle and how soon you need a ride. Many shuttle, rideshare and private transport operators charge much more for last-minute bookings, especially those made at the airport.
Book your shuttle transportation ahead of time to avoid overcharging.
One thing to note: Jayride is NOT a service to assist with airport transit. This is when you’re changing from an arriving flight to a departing flight at the same airport. Sometimes you’ll need to claim your luggage and clear customs and immigration, and sometimes you’ll need to move between terminals. For transit assistance, check with your flight crew or an airline representative as soon as you land.
Arrange for a personal meet-and-greet when you touch down, with one of Jayride’s transfer partners. Whether it’s business or pleasure, enjoy pick up by a friendly driver in a clean and reliable vehicle who will get you where you need to be.
Airport transfer vehicles range from small sedans and shared vans through to larger cars, rideshare vehicles and luxury airport transfers in shiny limousines.

Airport transfers are privately-run transport options. Typically a private car or van, they differ from public transport as they’re private and direct to your destination. They differ from taxis as they tend to be pre-paid and so safer, avoiding haggling, scams, and drivers taking the ‘scenic route’ with the meter running.
Tip according to local custom and practice. Tips for airport transportation vary from country to country, and according to the service offered. The more personalized the service, and the more your driver does to ensure an easy and comfortable trip, the bigger the tip. Check before you arrive to see what tips are expected in your destination.
