• Your journey
• How many people are travelling in your group
• Day and date of your travel
• Special offers and discounts available
When calculating fares, we usually start with our standard price quote and then reduce it according with the factors you saw above. That’s why we only ever decrease our prices, but never increase them.
Final price of your transfer will be formed taking into account vehicle availability, transfer schedule, the use of the vehicle and some additional costs like road tolls and airport parking charges.
