private taxi to Rex resort

Hi is it worth paying for a private taxi from the airport or should I pay the extra shuttle charges within my holiday package, the cost for shuttle bus is £29 there and back for the 2 of us .

It is literally a 3 minute drive to the Rex from the airport, so that is really quite expensive.

We took our own taxi when we were checking out, and I think it was $10 USD per person, so quite a bit cheaper but still silly for the 3 minute ride. You won't have trouble finding a taxi at the airport either.

its easier to just take a taxi from the airport, they charge $16.00 us for the two of you. As Melissassm said, its only about 3 mins drive or less.

Being so close to the airport will we be affected by planes flying over hotel ?

not really, the airport sits to your right from the hotel and all flights turn to the east of the airport for their destination up north unless you're heading to Barbados or Tobago where they travel at an eastern coast

usually the shuttle to the resort is included in the package. Were it not for your luggage you could easily walk there - the entrance it is literally about 1000 ft from the airport - the drive is about 2 minutes or less.

We took a taxi from the resort to the airport - $10USD for 4 people
