Catching a shuttle transfer or taxi from the airport can sometimes be a gamble; we recommend booking your transfers with an endorsed service provider through your resort in Honolulu. To add this option to your quote or booking, simply select the transfers option and we'll take care of the rest. While this may result in a slightly more expensive package price, dealing with a reputable operator ensures no nasty surprises on the other end.
