You need to define the term 'best'. As 'best' means 'lowest cost', I would take a transfer bus. If you define 'best' in a different way then the answer may be different.

If you don want to suffer the long wait sometimes for a large bus to full and you don't mind paying a little more then I believe the best way is to get a private driver. If you need help finding such a service you can see www.montegobay-airport-transfers.com

To be fair, you asked what the 'best' way was to get there, you didn't ask how the transport was. The difference in time between a bus and a taxi is minimal (maybe 10 mins), but dependant on whether the bus does a multi-drop. That said, GBP is usually the first drop in Runway Bay, so it's unlikely that you would have to stop anywhere else.

There are pro's and con's to both. You may have a short wait for the bus to fill up, but you will have to pay anything between $70-$120 for a taxi.

We all have our own opinions as to which is 'best'. Personally for me, I'd rather use the extra $ for something else, yet some people seem to prefer to rush to their resort in a cab.

Hi Dai O,

Can you let me know which way you ultimately went, big bus or private transfer? I've asked the same question just last week without any response, other than people suggesting that a private transfer is a nicer method of transportation. Thanks in advance.

We always get a private driver to beat the check in rush that is inevitable when the shuttle arrives.

You also avoid the unnecessary stop and delay while waiting for the rest of the bus passengers.

We use, and highly recommend, Zipp (Berly Lewis)

Zipp can be reached at: zipp.jamtours@yahoo.com

The cost is approx. $100 for two people, trip is hour to hour 15.
