Olympus tour Transfers

I have booked our Vacation with Travelocity and they included shared transfers to Luxury Bahia Principe Sian Ka'an Hotel for $115.00 for 2 roundtrip . is that a good deal ?? I contacted Olympus to see how much extra for Private and they said $100.00 extra so $215.00 total . which I thought was a bit much . Any suggestions or is what we have seem good ?

No its not a good deal - online places like Expedia make their big profits on these extras at your expense

A private transfer is about $120-130 total for up to 3 people round trip

Olympus was the one that told me it would be $100.00 extra for the Private transfer making the total $215.00 I did a live chat with them online and that was what they told me . It seems like the ride to the Hotel is about 1 1/2 hours

So Travelocity says I have to cancel my complete package to change or remove my transfer option and right now the price of air and hotel are up . so either way I guess I loose :( Almost just want to cancel it all and start over another day

Why cant you just deal with olympus privately. Don't talk to expedia. They dont care. You should be able to book privately with olumpus for 120.00 up to 3 people return.

8. Re: Olympus tour Transfers

I just checked Oly tours web site which charge $60 pp ($120) for a SHARED transfer so actually $115 is a good deal (for using Oly)

A private transfer with Oly is $260 for 1-5 people total (ridiculous price)

Private transfers with Canada Transfers (one of the cheaper ones) is $107

Thanks:) I feel better , I guess I will just be glad I get a vacation and have a good time :) I was going to cancel and re book but you have to do the complete package with Travelocity and the hotel and air has gone up so i cant get a better deal . I guess i will learn from my mistakes and pay better attention next time. Thanks for all the input
