Airport transfers

We're due to holiday at the Paloma Foresta in early May with Thomas Cook.

From reading the info on the hotel, Thomas Cook claim that transfers are '45mins to 1hr 25mins'...I'm guessing the former is for a private taxi transfer & the later would be a shared coach transfer (with multiple drop offs).

Thomas Cook want to charge £123 for a private transfer (return)...I've got an alternative provider price of £30(!!) via Skyscanner.

Is it worth paying the £30 to get a private transfer or should we stick with the shared bus?

Our shared coach transfer took less than an hour, I think the 1hr 25 would be worst case scenario. Obviously the choice is yours but personally I’d save my money. Have a look at reviews and filter them for transfers and you’ll be able to read how others have found the journey.

It’s a lovely hotel, the scenery is beautiful, hope you enjoy.

I use Hoppa.com. Their shared rate is currently £28.02 for 2 people return. If you go via TopCashback it is a net £26.22. Hoppa usually have larger discounts than the current 15% so you could sign up to their email list to save a few more Pounds but compared to that £123, I would just book (via TopCashback).

I have mostly booked shared transfers with Hoppa, never paid for the 'Max 4 stops' option and have never been disappointed. They mostly use 10-12 passenger vehicles from Antalya though we have been lucky several times to get a VIP-mobile to ourselves several times. To Beldibi, the shared transfer time should be around 40-45 mins

If you are not a member of TopCashback, I will gain £7.50 for referring you:

You will gain my thanks :-)

Cheers Tim, I usually use Hoppa too (via Quidco) but this time trip.com came out cheaper by using skyscanner.net.
