Amstar (Apple) shuttle - beer available ?

I have never used Amstar through Apple Vacations, in the past it was always Lomas through FunJet. Does anyone know if they offer beer during the ride? free or for a charge? We have only paid for shared non-stop.

Lomas charged for beer when it was shared, but when we paid more for private the beer was included.

I don't really care of the cost, but having it available would be great.

We haven't seen beer on the Amstar shuttles for quite a while. Usually we just buy it at the little stand just outside the airport and bring it with us.

lol... All Inclusive... within 1 hour... and the most important thing is still a ride brew.

Enjoy your vacation.

We did the shared nonstop in March.... no beer, no water, just a shorter ride to the resort !

When we go to Cozumel with Apple they use Llomas for transportation, we never got beer, just the ride to the resort.

We have used Lomas 14 times (#15 coming up in 2 weeks) with all private except for 1 and there never has been beer included. We could have paid extra (both on the drive or in advance) for beer but we never do since we are only 25 minutes or so away from our resort.

BEWARE!! We wanted something festive to kick off our vacation & our travel agent booked a "Platinum VIP" transfer with Amstar for our arrival transfer in Sept. Our flight arrived on time but Amstar was CLUELESS!! The "Platinum VIP" was to have been in an SUV with sparkling wine & a flower for the ladies in our group. What we got (after locating where Amstar was)was hauling our luggage to the far end of the taxi bays (full of water) standing around & waiting on Amstar for 30+ minutes (who had no record of our transfer even though we gave them our voucher). A van with blankets covering torn seats pulled into the water filled bay; no wine, flowers or SUV. Definately NOT what we paid for. We are still trying to get a refund (1.5 weeks later) in the difference in services provided. BE VERY CAREFUL DOING BUSINESS WITH AMSTAR. Not a reputable company IMO. Also heard from others now, after the fact, that they are no good. Wish I'd known going in, we'd have gone with USA or Canadian. Don't want anyone else to get ripped off by Amstar.

Some transfers now provide refreshments at minimal costs

I believe we will see more as Canada Transfers are providing cold water/ face clothes for free and beer (pre-ordered) at $1 each

Lomas is more expensive than others

I think it depends on who the bus handler is! They're not supposed to sell beer but some of them buy it prior to picking up guests and then sell it on board at a slightly higher price. If you get the private suburban transfer with them then it does include beer and soft drinks.

We usually just drink a fast one outside the airport then take a few on the shuttle for the ride to hotel. We asked first if we could beer on & they said sure can!1
