Thread: Driver wanted

  1. #1

    Default Driver wanted

    We are headed to CN with a good size crowd to celebrate a friends birthday. We are going to be there for 5 days then go to CTI to check out the new vibe there for 4 days and some one on one time. My question is this: how to get from CN to CTI in a few hours without paying more than another days stay.

    My husband and I were married at CSA in 2002 and are 5x repeaters. I know we could jump the van from CN to MBJ then transfer to CTI but honestly, I think I will pass that 5 hour ride.

    I emailed TimAir with our request and was given a rate of $650!!! No way, mon.

    Was wondering if anybody had a reputable, safe driver recommendation? We have traveled off of the resorts only a little and only a "cab ride" to and from CSA to Negril for some shopping, local eats etc but haven't got to know a driver that well. I know some of you repeaters have ventured out more and have made friendships with some local drivers. I am sure that the staff at CN would help "hook you up" but just want to have things pinned down a little before departure.

    Thanks for your help!

    Couples will provide the transfer free of charge. We left CSS at 6:00 AM and got to CN at 8:11 AM! No stop at the airport. There are two tricks to this:

    1) Leave early in the morning to avoid the traffic.

    2) Check with the front desk the day before you leave as to when the vans are going to the airport the next day. Then schedule your transfer outside of the times of the airport shuttles for the day, so you won't have to ride along on a trip to the airport.

    This way you will get a free, private transfer that will take just over 2 hours!

    I think that they have a shuttle that will go directly to CTI, not stopping at Mobay. I might be wrong, but I thought I read something about that here on the MB.

    I think you will need to wait until you get to the resort. I think your only other option is to call the Couples 1-800 number and see if they can set up a private transfer before your arrive.

    Sorry, but due to liability reasons, we do not allow any discussion of specific drivers. Your best bet is to speak with our concierge to know that the drivers we suggest have the necessary insurances.

    Hey Randymon, I understand that you can't recommend a company with which you are not familiar, especially due to liability issues. My main question is; how long would it take by taxi, early in the AM, around 8:00, to drive straight from CTI to CN, nonstop. I have been unable to get this info. Do you have any estimate as to time and cost???
