Private Transfer

Hi, travelling to Dubai in September with Virgin Holidays and have a private hotel transfer booked.

We have recieved a vouchers from Virgin for the transfer and it says Alpha Tours at the top of the paperwork. Does anyone know if we pass through passport control and then find a desk or are we looking out for someone with our name on a board? Also any ideas of what sort of car this is likely to be?

Hi,

Alpha tours is a tour operator in dubai & you will find someone with your name at the meeting area.

Not sure if Alpha tours have office at the airport.

The last time we went, we had a private transfer with Alpha Tours. A chap was stood waiting with a board with our name on it.

The car used was a brand new BMW 5 Series

Hi, we are also going in September with virgin. I have not yet had any vouchers for the transfer, are these just your tickets / invoice? Sorry to hijack the thread

The vouchers were 2 separate A4 sheets just in with the tickets.

Thanks for the info about the transfer

Will I still have time to pop in to duty free to buy some wine or will that keep the driver waiting to long?

What we usually do is one wait for luggage and the other go to duty free shop as they are right next door - then - by the time you have the luggage - the other has changed money and bought the duty free- no waiting!!
