That’s why to bring things back to a certain level of normalcy, the companies coming under these two domains are being extra cautious. The highest level of sanitisation and social distancing parameters are being followed by tour operators that are making all your accommodation and transfer bookings. 

  • Located in Port Blair, Andaman Island Travels is a trustworthy company that is committed to take care of its guests as soon as they land here. It has a fleet of sanitised cars driven by highly professional and polite drivers. The moment you reach Veer Savarkar International Airport (also known as Port Blair Airport), your pre-arranged cab will be waiting for you at the arrival gate. It will drop you safely at your hotel or any other destination as per your requirement. The airport transfer service is available across the Andaman Islands. A stress-free car rental experience is ensured with superior services that cater to individual needs. Along with the airport transfer, you can book the cab for sightseeing as well when vacationing on this beautiful island.

    To book airport transfer service in the Andamans, all you need to do is share your contact and destination details with the experts of Andaman Island Travels. They will book a car for you that will pick you up from the airport and will also advise the best itinerary for your holidays.

  • A driver will meet you outside the airport, holding a placard with your name written on it. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, you can book private cars, vans of any other vehicle depending on the number of people. The transfer will be organised to bring the esteemed guests directly from the airport to the desired destination.

    The topmost reason for choosing the service of airport transfer is convenience. By booking this, you save yourself and your family or partner from the stress of trying to hail a taxi or lug a heavy suitcase onto public transportation. Especially if you are coming off a long-haul flight, then you should have the satisfaction of all the transportation of being taken care of before you arrive at your destination airport. Also, the drivers can adjust pick-up times if there are delays as they monitor the flight of their passengers. And the best thing is that private airport transfer could be cost-effective when compared to taking a normal taxi. To book your own airport transfer, contact Andaman Island Travels for making all the arrangements for you.

  • p>You can also avail the shared airport transfer service. In this, a more spacious vehicle such as a van can be booked by multiple parties. This kind of transfer often operates on a regular schedule, unlike private transfers that can be scheduled at any time of day. These shared airport transfers may offer door-to-door service thereby drop you off at your hotel. But there are others too that will only bring you to a central hub in the Andaman Islands. A shared transfer can be booked for the guests, who are arriving at the airport around the same time. 

    The shared airport transfer is usually very cheap than the private one as the cost gets divided among everyone. Therefore, it is a great option for those travellers who seek convenience but do not want to pay an exorbitant fee. The only shortcoming in this kind of airport transfer is that you might be required to wait for other guests to arrive before your transfer departs.

While making arrangements for your vacation in the Andaman Islands, booking your flight and resort is not enough. You have to think in advance about how you will get from the airport to your accommodation. Or even from your hotel to the airport, for that matter. Pre-booking your airport transfer solves this problem. 

For a majority of the travellers, thinking about how to get to or from the airport usually isn’t included in their ‘to do’ list. Everyone books the flight and a comfortable hotel well in advance, but finding and booking an airport transfer is probably the least crucial for them. But the fact is that your vacation will be a little less stressful if you book a transfer before you leave home.

Whether you are travelling with your friends, family or significant other, booking an airport transfer before you leave will be the final piece in the trip puzzle. Your pre-booked transfers will let you travel easily and hassle-free, giving you more time to enjoy your holidays. If you are one of those who like to treat and pamper themselves while vacationing, then that begins from having a touch of luxury from the very starting. Everyone likes the idea of reaching the hotel in a private car. 

Hiring an airport transfer service in the Andaman Islands means that you get to the hotel or airport in time rather than wasting time finding taxis or navigate public transport last minute. If you have to reach the airport early in the morning, then you don’t want to worry if there will be a taxi around. The same goes for when you land. In your busy schedule and limited time in Andamans, you need to know that someone is there to pick you and drop you at the desired destination on time.
