1. What happens when I make a reservation?
Once you complete your holiday taxis booking , the details of the booking are sent electronically to our resort representatives who will make the appropriate arrangements as per your request.
2. What does the price include?
A one-way price will include a single journey, either from your arrival airport, to your accommodation or from your accommodation to your departure airport.

3. Do infants count?
Most resort taxis can carry up to 4 adults as stated above. Infants and children do count in all vehicles as one person as they take up a seat belt place. Laws are different in many countries relating to the use of child seats for infants and children (Please see our safety policy). We strongly recommend parents take their own child seats to ensure adequate safety in foreign countries and to comply with local legislation. As with car rental policy it is also the parents responsibility to fit the seat. Most airlines do not charge for the carriage of child seats and pushchairs. We do not always have the facility to provide infant or child seats in our vehicles.

Details of how to collect your transfer upon arrival differ in each resort.

Holiday taxis recommend that you arrive at the airport a minimum of 90 minutes before departure time.
