5 Benefits of Shuttle Service for Kelowna Airport Hotels

July 09, 2015

Kelowna Airport Hotel Shuttles

A reliable shuttle service is a convenient and cost-effective mode of ground transportation for getting to Kelowna airport hotels.

Your flight was on-time, your luggage was one of the first loaded onto the carousel and now you’re looking forward to unwinding at one of the Kelowna hotels near the airport. But first, you have to find your way to the one you made your booking with.

If you’re not overly familiar with the Okanagan, one of the more reliable ways of reaching your final destination from Kelowna International Airport (YLW) is preplan a shuttle service. Compared to other modes of transport, a shuttle is an ideal choice. Here’s why:

1. More Reliable Than a Taxi

Most hotels in Kelowna near airport terminals use a shuttle service to transfer guests to and from the airport. Ones like BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites partner with Let's Go Transportation, a third party ground trasportation provider with a proven track record for reliability.

Whereas taxis will sometimes skip a booking, Let’s Go follows a dependable routing schedule that meets their clients’ needs. By reserving a shuttle ahead of time, you’ll guarantee yourself a ride.

Inexperienced travellers sometimes forget that taxi queues get a lot longer whenever a flight arrives. You could find yourself waiting a while in a lineup to get a ride.


2. Cheaper Than a Taxi

While a taxi fare to some Kelowna airport hotels can cost as much as $25, Let’s Go shuttle service rates start at $17, one way. And the fare gets cheaper for groups of travellers:

  • $21 for two travellers (total fee)
  • $26 for three
  • $30 for four
  • $9 per passenger for groups of five or more


3. Eliminates the Need for a Rental Car

If you’re in town on business and you don’t need to travel far from the hotel you’re staying at, a shuttle service can help you cut back on unnecessary travel expenses.


4. Arrive for your Outbound Flight on Time

Transportation specialists like Let’s Go understand the inconvenience of missing a flight. They have the experience to plan their schedules to ensure their customers reach the airport with plenty of time to clear check-in and security procedures. They also understand local traffic patterns and can plan their route times accordingly.

With professional drivers behind the wheel of your shuttle, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ll arrive at your Kelowna hotel safely.


5. Early morning/late night service

While the regular office hours for Let’s Go Transportation might be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., their shuttle service begins much earlier than that.

To the airport: Morning pickups begin as early as 4 a.m. from the West Kelowna, with the last scheduled drop-off to YLW at 12:15 a.m.

From the airport: Let’s Go collects its first set of travellers from YLW at 5:05 a.m., and it’s last group at 1:15 a.m.
