What is the difference between shared transfers (Shuttle) and private transfers?
Shared transfer, as the name indicates, is shared with more clients, when everybody arrives the bus leaves the Airport towards the different hotels. If the transfer is to return to the Airport then the shuttle will go to the different hotels to pick up all the clients and take them to the Airport.
Private transfer is exclusively for you (or your group) and we will have a vehicle booked so that when you arrive we will take you directly from the Airport to your destination or vice-versa, from your Hotel directly to the Airport.
Which trips can I book?
Our system takes three booking options:
Transfer from the Airport to the Hotel (Arrival only)
Transfer from the Hotel to the Airport (Departure only)
Transfer from the Airport - Hotel - Airport (Arrival and Departure)
Are there any extra charges added to the prices?
No, the final price includes all fees and taxes.

Will it take me to a country house or a private apartment?
The shared transfers (shuttle) transfers are only available for tourist hotels and apartments. If you book a transfer to a private apartment or a country house you should indicate the nearest Hotel or tourist resort, and that is where we will take you and pick you up. From this point you should make your own arrangements to get to your country house or private apartment.
Transfers to country houses or private apartments can only be accepted if they are accessible and that depends on the size of the booked vehicle.
If I book a shared transfer, will I have to wait much for the Bus to leave?
The maximum waiting time at the airport is 45 minutes from the arrival at our desk. As we wait for clients from different flights and different nationalities.
