USA Transfers vs Cancun Transfers

We're headed back to Secrets Maroma in August and I was checking transfer rates (we've always used USA Transfers with good service for over 5 years now because of their competitive rates) and noticed their rates increased quite a bit percentage wise. (I believe last year at that time it was $80 and is now listed at $99 which isn't a huge amount of money but it is a 20%+ increase). I've heard others have positive comments about CancunTransfers who are $82 round trip and was hoping to get thoughts from anyone who has used both. How do their services compare? Drivers? Cars? Payment process? etc?

Thanks in advance for any help!

There was a recent thread mentioning that Cancun transfers were 35 minutes late picking up people who were returning to the airport. Others reported lateness as well on the thread.

We've used Cancun Transfers for the last six years. I love the fact that I can book online and pay via paypal. I get a confirmation email and I always take the receipts with me but, we've never needed them. They build the time it takes to get to the airport and the anticipated wait time into the times they arrange to bring you back. I usually spring for the VIP service in the suburban. I don't need to but I like the added comfort. They're great. I've never experienced them being late or had a problem with that.

I've never used USA Transfers as I've never felt the need to switch.

Appreciate the info. Seems like Canada Transfers may be an alternative to consider and they are even less expensive with lots of positive reviews I've seen. ($75 for round trip to Secrets Maroma)

I've used both. They were both on time upon arrival and departure. The driver we had for Cancun Transfers was a little nicer than USA but frankly, the most important part is getting there! We had to cancel one trip with Cancun Transfers only the day before and there was no issue at all. We used CV twice and USA once. For our most recent trip we used AGI on the recommendation of our travel agent and they were great; there was even a mix-up on our arrival information (completely our fault) and they tracked down the issue to make sure they were there. There were also voicemails on all our numbers when we arrived home because they called to try to track us down. Excellent service.

Its a race to the bottom if we keep changing to the lowest cost provider. Is Cda Transfers reliable?
