Punta Cana sits at the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic and is famous for its spectacular 32km stretch of powder-soft sand and bright blue waters.

Which to choose: private or shared transfer?

If you’re unsure whether a shared or private transfer is right for you, we’ve put together the key differences to help you decide.

Shuttle bus

  • A shared shuttle is usually the most cost-effective option – so if you’re looking for the cheapest airport transfers in Punta Cana, this may be for you.
  • You will share the bus with other passengers. This may mean there’s a short wait at the airport if their flight lands after yours.
  • Along the way, the driver will make various stops to drop off other travellers and your accommodation may not be first.

Private vehicle

  • You and your friends/family will be the only passengers in the vehicle.
  • You will have a specific time to meet your driver and will set off straight away, with no wait time.
  • Our private airport transfers in Punta Cana will take you directly to your accommodation with no other stops on route. 

How much do airport transfers in Punta Cana cost?

The cost of your airport transfer from Punta Cana will depend on several factors, such as the length of your journey and the type of transfer you select. Please note that the prices you see today are live valuations and therefore subject to change in line with currency rates and resort pricing. If you wait to book your transfer on another date, the cost may change.

I’ve chosen my transfer – what happens next?

Found the perfect option? Great – once you hit ‘Book’ you’ll arrive at the ‘Extras’ section. This page will tell you key information about your Punta Cana airport transfer, such as your luggage allowance. This is typically one item of carry-on and one suitcase per person, but please do check as this may differ depending on the chosen vehicle. You will have the option to include extra baggage or items such as golf clubs or a wheelchair here – but if you need any help don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Do I get a confirmation?

Yes – once you’ve completed your booking, we’ll send you an email confirmation containing your e-ticket. This has all the key information about your journey, such as the pick-up time, date and location. It also has an emergency phone number should you need to get in touch with us during your trip. Please check this carefully before you travel to check all the details are correct.  It’s important to keep your e-ticket safe as you’ll need to show it to your driver when they pick you up. We recommend printing it off and keeping it in your carry-on.

Where do I go when I land?

On your e-ticket, there’s a ‘Find my pick-up’ section which will tell you where to meet the driver of your transfer from Punta Cana airport to your hotel. Typically, this will be in the arrivals hall, where the driver will have a sign either with your name, hoppa or the travel provider’s name. However, this may vary depending on the type of transfer you’ve chosen, so please do check your e-ticket. If you can’t see the information you need, please give us a call so we can help.

What should I do if I can’t find my driver?

If you’re at the pick-up point but can’t see your driver, please don’t worry. Our drivers run a little late sometimes if there’s heavy traffic or another unforeseen circumstance. Give us a call on the number displayed on your e-ticket and we can update you on their whereabouts.

What happens if I’m late?

We know that delays happen sometimes, so please don’t stress if you’re running a little behind schedule. Whether your flight was delayed, or baggage claim takes longer than anticipated, give us a call on the number on your e-ticket. We’ll get in touch with your driver and let them know you’ll be late.

They will wait for you for up to 45 minutes after the scheduled meeting time. Running later than that? We’ll send an alternative driver to collect you. If you are three or more hours late, you’ll need to book another Punta Cana transfer from the airport to your hotel and get in touch with your travel insurer.
