TRS Airport Transfer Recommendations

Post by jfb331 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:15 pm

Does anyone have any recommendations or experiences with the various airport transfer companies ? Private rates (AGI, NAST, Transfers USA etc ) vary $110-170 for 2 people roundtrip. Appreciate any thoughts or suggestions ! Thanks !

AGI is certainly highly recommended here.

I've used Canada Transfers and will use them again in May. I know that many people here have also recommended NAST.

I've personally used AGI, Canada Transfers and Nast. They were all equality reliable, easy to deal with, and used great vans. All these things being equal, I would go with whoever gives you the best price. Make sure to check out to see who you can pay in pesos as that is sometimes the best deal. Last time I checked, Nast was the least expensive.

I have to agree with Jackie on this one have been traveling to the palladium for many many years and we have used all that she has mentioned that being said they are all good and reliable go with the best deal for your hard earned money we will be using Nast again this year for the get together.

I’ve been to the Royal Suites twice now (2014 and 2016) and going back this summer. Both times my husband and I used Lomas Travel and highly recommend them. Now I am not sure about pricing as my travel agent always included free private airport transfer. I definitely recommend upgrading to the private transfer regardless of who you use. I don’t go on vacation much so when I do I always like to pay an extra $50 here and there for the upgrades and do not regret it at all. I liked not having to wait, as soon as we exited the terminal we were in an SUV within 5 min. My husband really enjoys cigars from time to time and our driver let us go into a shop on the way to the hotel. I have not really heard anything bad about any of the companies regarding airport transfers so I think no matter which company you go for you will be fine. But I do recommend the upgrade to private transportation as it is usually only $50 more give or take and depending on how long your flight is the $50 is really worth it not waiting any longer since the drive to palladium is quite long after a flight.

Who does the Travel Club send for private transfers?? Do they hold signs up with your name??

I believe they use a company called Destination Services, but when you exit the airport, you should see someone holding a sign with your name with the TC logo. Sometimes it's challenging to find them if they are standing in the back as there are so many transfer companies all milling around holding signs.

We have used Canada Transfers in the past and I will be booking with them tonight for our April visit for the 13th Get Together.

Safe, good price, and you can arrange cold drinks and beer for the ride. On past visits they were on time and ready to go, no issues.
