I'm hoping someone might be able to offer some advice regarding group airport transfers.
We are getting married in Port Vila in September and have about 35 friends and family going over for our wedding. A number of our guests are travelling on the same flights so we thought it might be cheaper for them (and more convenient) if we arranged group transfers for them - particularly those that are on the flights that arrive really late at night.
I have contacted Melanesian Tours as they are highly recommended on here I noticed someone else on here paid a flat rate for a bus for 12 people and it worked out to be a very good rate per person. They have quoted me 1800 vatu per person per way (for a shared service), which seems a little expensive when a taxi is only 2000-2500 vatu per vehicle. I have asked if they do a flat rate per vehicle/bus for private group transfers and I got a rather confusing reply saying that only do a flat rate in special circumstances.
Each group will have a minimum of 6 people and a maximum of 12 so I would have thought they would be big enough groups for group transfers.
I have since emailed Evergreen Tours (who have quoted 2000 vatu per person per way), and Adventures in Paradise and Atmosphere Tours (awaiting replies from them).
Our accommodation/wedding venue (Erakor Island Resort) have offered to arrange transfers through Around Vanuatu Tours for $15 AUD per person or $30 AUD return, which so far is the cheapest.
But would our guests just be better of sharing a number of taxis?
Any advice would be appreciated! :)
