You got off the plane- now how do you get to your hotel?

When My Vacation Lady customizes our client’s vacation or honeymoon packages, we want them to be seamless and stress free so one of the things we like to include are airport transfers.

So what exactly are airport transfers?


Let me explain.  When you get off the plane in your vacation or honeymoon destination, airport transfers are the way you will get from the airport to your hotel.

Unless you are very well traveled and are very comfortable getting around on your own, in a foreign country, we do strongly recommend that you allow us to include transfers.

Getting off the plane in an airport like Cancun, can be a bit crazy with all of the time share sales sharks (as we like to call them) trying to convince you to allow them to arrange for your transfers for free– as long as you sit in an hour long hire pressure time share presentation.  Or just finding a cab among all of the shuttle companies out there, can be difficult.

Our transfers will be waiting for you and will know what hotels you are going to.  You don’t need to have lots of foreign currency on hand since they will be pre-paid, before you leave in US $.

What are the different kinds of airport transfers are there?

  • The least expensive will be the bus or van shuttle that will wait until they have enough passengers to depart and then they will stop off at multiple hotels before getting to yours.  If you are lucky, you’ll be the first to be dropped off and the last to be picked up.   This will be called a SHARED TRANSFER because you will be on the shuttle with other people going to different hotels.
  • Next, we can offer you a NONSTOP TRANSFER.  This means that you’ll be getting on a vehicle (could be a mini van, shuttle van or even bus) with other people but you’ll all be going to the same hotel so no other stops along the way.
  • The last and most expensive will be PRIVATE TRANSFERS.  This type of transfer is only for your party- whether it is just the 2 of you, your family or 4 or even larger.  You can get a minivan for up to 7 passengers, a van for up to 13-15 passengers or a sedan or luxury vehicle for just the 2 of you.

There are a few different types of private transfers- some can include a concierge or luxury meet and greet.  We experienced this on our last vacation to Cancun.  On the way down, we had a luxury limo transfers from the airport to our first hotel.  This was definitely a treat!  Here is the description:

Travel from the airport to your hotel with style in a Mercedes Benz Limousine. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, traveling for business or just want to pamper yourself, this is the way to go! The bilingual Concierge Service Airport, Meet, Greet and Escort chauffeur will greet you with a fresh towelette to freshen up upon arrival, a fresh rose for the lady passengers, access to free international cell phone service upon arrival or departure . Rate includes: A bottle of sparkling wine. Bottled water. Bilingual professional chauffeur who will escort you upon arrival at your selected hotel to the front desk. Personalized assistance and baggage handling at the airport.

On the return, we had a Private Concierge transfer that was just a sedan.  The driver called ahead and an airport concierge met us at the airport, shooed away the sky cap, took our luggage, printed out boarding passes for us and took our luggage to be checked in.  From the airport sidewalk to checking our luggage in took less than 5 minutes.  It was a pleasure!

So whether you are ok with the shared transfers, prefer nonstop transfers or want to pamper yourselves with private transfers, My Vacation Lady can incorporate them into your vacation or honeymoon package.
