Complimentary Airport Shuttle: Getting to Kelowna Airport Hotels Just Got Easier

November 27, 2015

Complimentary Aiport Shuttle to Hotel

Travellers flying into the Okanagan can now reach Kelowna hotels near the airport a lot easier thanks to Best Western's complimentary airport shuttle service.

Whether you’re flying for business or pleasure, many travellers appreciate the convenience of staying at Kelowna airport hotels. The last thing you want to contend with when you land at the airport is a lengthy ride in the back of a taxi before you settle in at your final destination.

Fortunately, accommodation providers like BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites now offer a complimentary airport shuttle service for guests arriving at Kelowna International Airport (YLW). This removes some of the hassle from your hectic travel day, and it’s just another opportunity for us to provide a value-added service to our guests.


How the Shuttle Service Works

In order to take advantage of Best Western Kelowna’s free shuttle service, you first need to book the shuttle in our easy booking process. While you can’t just walk out of the airport terminal and expect a shuttle to be there, you can pre-plan for one to be there for when your flight arrives. We work with Let’s Go Transportation, a third-party shuttle service company, and can reserve your seat in advance so they know you’re coming.

The best way to do this is while you make your initial accommodation booking, either through your travel agent or call us directly. If you can advise the booking agent that you require transportation from the airport, we’ll arrange for a pickup at a time that suits your needs. We can also arrange a return shuttle so you’re at the airport with plenty of time for your departing flight.

Book your complimentary airport shuttle: 1-888-860-1212

Ideally, you’ll need to provide the agent with your:

  • Name
  • Flight number
  • Expected arrival time
  • Number of travellers

Our shuttle provider also serves two other Kelowna airport hotels, and they’ve developed an efficient travel route to make this work with minimal delay. You might have to make a stop to drop other guests off along the way, but it’s still a convenient option.


Changes to Your Travel Plans

In the event that your flight details change, please notify the hotel at your earliest convenience so we can reschedule your shuttle to match your new arrival time.

Whenever possible, it’s recommended that when you request a shuttle service to Kelowna hotels near airport terminals, you provide at least 24 hour’s notice.


It’s Like a Meal on Us (Sort of)

If you were to take a cab, the nine-kilometre trip to the Kelowna Best Western from YLW would set you back about $24 (plus tip). That’s a fair chunk of change for a 15-minute ride.

Best Western Kelowna Restaurant

Arriving hungry at the hotel? Our pub is just steps away from the lobby.

If you were to look at it another way, you could save that money by using our shuttle service and, upon your arrival, treat yourself to a nice meal at our Kelowna pub and restaurant: 97 Street Pub. Everyone in the family has comfortable and familiar options to choose from, served up with an original twist. Leafy greens or pasta, to protein power—there’s something to suit your mood.

If you really want to pamper yourself, you can always relax with a spa treatment at our Wellness Spa. To learn more, read our post: In-Hotel Kelowna Spa Treatments: Know What You’re Getting.
