If we book your shared ride from Punta Cana airport, how long might we have to wait in your van for other passengers? Up to 30 minutes. If you'd like to get straight to your hotel, we recommend you book our private ride.

Do you provide cool moist hand-towels on arrival at Punta Cana airport? Yes, these are included for clients who book our limousine service.

We'd like you to have some cold beers for my wife and me, awaiting us in your van, might you be able to arrange this? Yes, however the simplest way for us to handle this, since there are only 2 of you travelling, and on a private booking, is we would have our driver take you en route to a roadside stop where you can buy the beers yourself.

We fly into Santo Domingo airport at 2:00 am. Can you pick us up at that time of the night? Yes, from all airports we can offer pick-up and drop-off 24/7 for our passengers who have booked with us before arrival in the DR.

If we book your Punta Cana shuttle ride, would the driver be able to make a stop at a cellphone shop for us to buy a SIM card? If you book a private transfer, yes, no problem. But if you book a shared ride, it would not be fair to the other passengers if they had to wait for you, so I recommend you book the private ride.

We'll be staying at 2 different Punta Cana resorts. Can you drive us from the one to the other? Yes, it would be a pleasure.

One of our party will be arriving in Punta Cana in an electric wheelchair, can you provide a van with a wheelchair ramp? Yes, there are a limited number of specially equipped vehicles in Punta Cana but if you book this with us ahead of time, there won't be a problem.
