So what are the different airport transfer options available?

Shared shuttles

Shared shuttles are a great option for the budget-conscious traveller, as this type of transfer is generally cheaper than a private transfer. A shared shuttle may pick up a number of passengers from the airport and drop each off at their hotel, so there are usually a number of stops along the way. If you’re on a budget and don’t mind meeting a few new people and stopping on the way to your destination, a shared shuttle might be the best option for you. When using, type in where you want to go, and a list of available transfer companies will appear. Click on the ‘shared’ tab to see the shared shuttle options available to you.

Private transfers

If you’d prefer your own vehicle to go straight to where you need to be – you’re travelling with family, in a group, or on business for example – then a private transfer is the best option for you. Meet and greet is usually available with a private transfer booking (subject to the transfer company’s policies) so you can find your driver straight away without trying to navigate the airport. This is especially useful if you have children in tow and want to get them into a vehicle quickly and without hassle. With a private transfer, you can also book children’s seats in advance, so it’s the perfect option for travelling families.

If you’re travelling with a family, a private transfer might be your best options, as you can book additional luggage space and children’s car seats

Private transfers are also the way to go if you’re travelling with extra luggage or over-sized luggage (like skis, surfboards or musical instruments) and need a larger vehicle to accommodate your needs. Taxis and Ubers don’t always have on-demand vehicles to cater for these requests, but we give you the option to let your transfer company know your needs in advance. Simply write down your request, whether it be a child seat or extra luggage space, in the ‘extras’ field of the booking form.
