Need transport from ferry port to hotel near airport

Hello,

I am looking for help to find transport from the Nice ferry port (arriving by boat on Corsica Ferries) to the "All Seasons Nice Aéroport" hotel.

Normally, I would just take a taxi, but this time.. my situation is a bit complicated.

I have a LOT of luggage:

- 3 large rubbermaid containers (100cm X 50cm X 40cm)

- 3 large suitcases

- 3 small suitcases

- 2 strollers (push-chair / poussette)

- 2 children car seats

- 2 children (3 year old and 1 year old

- 1 wife

- me

Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Or perhaps you own a large car or truck and would be willing to drive us? (Multiple trips if necessary...)

I am willing to pay for your help, of course.

Thanks!

ask the tour companies

they have a van and they will do it for you as a transfert

may be about 50 or 60 euros

Silly question - why not two taxi's - wife in one you in the other, and split the luggage?

Two taxis likely won't be big enough. :)

Also, two taxis means about 100 euro, and I was hoping to do this for a bit less.

If we're absolutely stuck, however, then we'll have no choice.

With that much luggage, you are not "travelling", you are moving home! All I can say is good luck. You do know the distance is still "walkable"? I walk from Nice centre to the airport regularly with one wheelie case - a little over an hour. Just a thought

Yes, actually we are moving. :) (From Corsica to Canada.)

I don't think my pregnant wife and two kids (1 year old and 3 year old) would appreciate walking from the Port of Nice to the airport with 1.5 cubic meters of luggage.

I don't drive so I can't help but I recommend putting an ad on angloinfo -someone might be able to help

There are also various folk who advertise there as being 'a man with a van' -a business for moving small loads -i have no idea how much they charge though
