1 – What happens if my flight is delayed?
Our airport staff monitor flight times closely, however if your flight has a delay you must call our emergency number which is stated on your transfer documents. This is a very important factor to remember when travelling late at night as alternative arrangements may have to be made.
2 – What is the difference between a shuttle service and a private transfer?
A SHUTTLE service is a shared transfer combining a mixture of passengers on a variety of flights. ((vehicle size may vary, however in most case are supplied by large coaches)) Shuttles run according to the demand of our pre-booked passenger lists, in operation at all times of the day & night. Shuttle transfers will only drop off & pick up from the main holiday recognised hotels and apartments.A PRIVATE transfer will collect you and your party ONLY. Private services are not shared and have NO other drop offs or collections other than your own. Private transfers run directly from the airport to your accommodation (& Vice Versa) or to/from your chosen drop off // collection point, door to door ((access permitting)).Private Transfers are an excellent option for celebrations, events, families with young children and disabled passengers.
3 – Will the coach drop off and pick up at my hotel?
If you book a private transfer you will receive a door to door service, access permitting.Our shuttle transfers have set drop off and pick up points, centralised around the main hotels and tourist apartment blocks. These stops are set by the local town hall and traffic police and must be adhered to. We try to keep drop off/pick up points to a minimum, so you may find your stop will be allocated nearby to serve a group of hotels/apartments in the same area. Our aim is to beat traffic and gain on journey time.
4 – Travelling with Children? Children: 2-10 years || Infants: 0-23 months.
Children from the age of 2 years should always occupy their own seat, and therefore are accountable on shuttle coach transfers. Infants under 2 years travel FREE on coach shuttles but must sit on a parent or guardians lap for the duration of the journey. Whilst babies do not occupy a seat, It is vital to include your number of little ones when booking to allow sufficient space for extra luggage & prams, etc. Child Boosters and Baby Seats can be provided, however, they are ONLY available on Private Transfers. Once you have your booking reference number, please E-mail us direct info@resortcare.info to confirm your child’s age and required type of seat to suit.
5 – Is the shuttle service suitable for people with disabilities?
Our shuttle service is not suitable for people who cannot climb the steps of a coach or minibus unaided. Our drivers can only assist with luggage onto the bus and not passengers. We strongly advise people with extreme disabilities to book the appropriate type of transport for their needs. Wheelchair adapted vehicles are available for people who are wheelchair bound. We have minibuses, as well as large coaches with ramps & lifts. Contact us for more info to suit your needs; info@resortcare.info
6 – How long will we have to wait before the bus leaves the airport?
Waiting time at the airport can vary depending on the time of year and the volume of passengers arriving. If you book a shuttle service, you may have to wait for others arriving on another flight, a delayed flight, or simply for other passengers waiting on luggage, however we do guarantee a maximum wait of 1hour for combined arrivals. This time is calculated from when the first passenger boards the bus.
7 – What if I need to change or cancel my booking?
Please contact our central office in Benidorm to make and confirm any requested changes or necessary cancellations. Administration fees will apply in most cases for amendments as well as cancellations; these may vary depending on time scale prior to travel.

No, not if you are travelling on a shuttle service. Our shuttle buses only allow for ONE pick up and drop off point per booking, routes cannot be diverted. The shuttle service caters for a number of mixed passengers sharing a coach transfer.If you have booked a private transfer this service is available,however, MUST be pre-arranged prior to your arrival.
