By Airport Transfer
Booking an Airport Transfer offers you the convenience of being dropped off directly at your Hotel for a lot less than the price of a taxi (€6 per person) and means you can forego the hassle of lugging your suitcases from the bus stop. Larger groups can book a mini van or private bus – a more economical option than booking several taxis. Note that you cannot buy a ticket for a transfer upon arrival at the airport, so you must book your transfer in advance.
