JFK Transfer Options

Shared shuttle bus Our shared shuttle bus transfers in New York offer a convenient way of getting to your hotel in the city, for the best price available. This is the perfect choice for those of you who want to keep a few more Dollars in your pocket to spend on the sights and museums. You will join other travellers in a large vehicle that may make some stops to drop off guests at hotels at points around the city before you reach yours. However, there will only be a maximum of 8 stops before you arrive, and you could even be the first stop, depending on where you are staying.
Speedy shared shuttle bus Offering fantastic value transport just like our standard shared shuttle option from JFK, our speedy shuttles work in almost exactly the same way, except you can expect to get to your hotel a little quicker. Like our standard shuttle transfer, you'll be travelling with other passengers who may be dropped off elsewhere ahead of you, but instead of stopping at 8 hotels, the speedy shuttle stops at a maximum of 4. This is the perfect choice for the best of both worlds for great value and quicker transfer times.
Private transfers from JFK A private transfer offers the typical transfer experience. Your driver will be waiting for you when you land as detailed on your confirmation email, and it's simply a case of finding them and hopping straight in your private car. There's no extra stops when you choose a private transfer - instead, you'll be whisked through the city to your hotel without needing to drop off any other guests on the way.
Luxury JFK transfers Offering everything you get from our standard private JFK transfers, but with that extra touch of something special, our executive options are perfect for those wanting the very best possible start to their holiday in New York. If you're enjoying a luxury holiday or celebrating a special occasion, you can choose to be picked up in a top-notch, premium brand vehicle and whisked straight to your hotel in style.
Private minibus transfers If you're travelling as part of a large group, then you can book your very own private minibus to keep all your loved ones in one vehicle. No need for your group to all clamber onto a shared transfer or get separated up into several cars that all arrive at different times thanks to famous New York traffic - you'll be transported in a single vehicle your group will have to themselves. Private minibus hire caters for up to a maximum of 22 people, so this is a great option for larger groups that don't want to share with other travellers, and want to arrive all at the same time.
Private coach transfers Travelling in a group that's too big, even for a minibus? If you need to transport an extra large group like a wedding party or school group in New York, then you can hire out an entire coach to get you where you need to go with the minimum of fuss and hassle. Our coaches typically offer up space for up to 60 people, and come with staff on board who are on hand to take care of everything you need.
