Fiji Transfers transport company - closed?

I am going to Fiji next month and had booked (and confirmed by deposit) 4 major transfers in the island. All of a sudden, their web page is suspended and I am not getting replies to e-mails. Does this mean that the company is closed for operations? How do I find out?

Thanks. It is called Fiji Transfers. I have no idea where it is based. Its website used to be www.fijitransfers.com but that entire link is now suspended. They are still on Facebook but I have no account with Facebook and so that does not help.

FijiTransfers are based in Nadi but .... they seem to be a sort of 'middle man' - i.e. you book with Fijitransfers then you are actually driven to your destination by another company of their choosing.. Fijitransfers has glowing reports from guests on their Facebook page, but there has been little activity since the end of last year.

As advised on their Facebook page - "Fijitransfers.com does not provide the transfer but connects you with local licensed Passenger Servicing Vehicle (PSV) drivers residing in Fiji, specialising in PRIVATE transfers from Nadi Airport and Denarau Harbour to the Coral Coast"

I have obtained an email address, sent an email and an automated reply received - 'will reply within 12 hours' - so we wait! I have also got someone else looking into this.

It could quite well be that their website has been terminated due to the url's unpaid account. Do not try to access their website or any links thereof - there are many security warnings on the www. about this url.

Success! Just had advice from the Manager of Fijitransfers that ..... their website was hacked and they had to close it down very quickly. They are having to build a completely new website and this should be up and running today/tomorrow. Their sister website url is

http://www.denarautransfers.com/home/html Bookings can be done here, queries sent about your bookings etc. Information seems to be very similar to their previous website & facebook pages & operating in the same way. Thumbs up to Fijitransfers for replying with their current information so quickly.

For Mayandi - More advice from fijitransfers. Contact the operations manager direct about your already made bookings (I have sent email address via Private Message to you). All drivers are registered 'private drivers' (& own their own vehicles) who are requested as Tourist Drivers with the Fijian Tourist Dept & Fiji Govt. The entire transfer cost is paid directly to the driver and therefore they're not just receiving a minimal weekly wage - they are working for themselves. Sounds good as they meet guests at the Airport and take directly to your destination.

The newly built & secure website for Fijitransfers is now up and running - www.fijitransfers.com

Guests now pay the vehicle drivers direct in Fiji - there are no more payments taken via the website, lessening the chances of credit card details being hacked. The booking form is laid out well and precise. I'm impressed how quickly this problem has been solved.

Mayandi - Cool - and am glad that it has turned out well for you. This has been great service from Fijitransfers - albeit they've had some 'hacking' website problems last few weeks and have rectified the situation very quickly. I'm going to try them out during my next trip. Let us know via TA know how it all goes. Happy travels.
