What is the difference between shared and private transfers?

Shared transfers are cheaper than private transfers, the trade-off is that they usually involve longer waiting and travel times. Transfer companies group passengers arriving at a similar time in the same vehicle, so you’ll share costs with other people. However, this means that you’ll have to wait until everyone’s plane lands, even if waiting times are usually under an hour. There will also be several stops on the way to drop people off, increasing the journey’s length.

Private transfers are generally much more convenient than shared transfers but they’re also more expensive. As the vehicle will be reserved for your party only, they’re the best option for groups and a good alternative when you can’t find a shared transfer around your flight time. Private transfers will leave the airport as soon as you arrive and go straight to your accommodation, making the waiting and journey times shorter. Those who prefer to travel in style will be able to book the latest luxury eco-friendly car or even fly high in a helicopter.
