Airport Transfer Service**
Do you need transportation from the airport to your accommodation?
We can book a pickup or drop off transfer according to your arrival & departure. Our partner’s fleet of vehicles is fully licenced and insured. Smaller vans make rapid runs with fewer students that allow us you to move between the airport and your host's home quickly and efficiently. We are your best choice for safe and affordable transfers.
Why not enhance your stay with some sightseeing?
We offer affordable excursions to several cities in Canada and the USA, such as Whistler, Victoria, Seattle, New York and many more!
Our partner will provide you with a memorable and unique experience. We truly care about each and every one of our guests and strive to give them ‘the time of their lives’. Everyone in our organization is committed to this belief and will not hesitate to go above and beyond to make sure each guest is having a wonderful experience. We take pride in the fact that many of our clients come from referrals or are repeat clients themselves.
Why risk unexpected medical expenses and ruin your adventure?
