* In our opinion and experience, after significant air travel time, your first airport transfer upon arriving internationally to your destination should be a private car service to ensure the most efficient transit to your accommodation. If you do not want a private car service we recommend a taxi or Uber to your accommodation. Throughout your trip we highly recommend private car service transfers for all your for all transfers to and from the airport, however if you prefer not to utilize this service we will confirm shuttle transfers with the understanding that such transfers are shared, the drivers do not offer assistance with luggage, make multiple stops to collect other passengers and have a pick up time window rather than a specified departure time

** Important: Before committing to your trip please ensure you hold a valid passport with at least six months’ validity from the date you plan to return to the USA.
