Lima - Airport to Hotel Pre-booked GAP Transfers

Postby brecque » Sun Sep 12, 2010 6:36 pm

Hi,

I have a pre-booked GAP transfer in Lima for an after midnight arrival.

What type of transportation is used for the transfers? Shuttle with other travellers, van, car,taxi? What is the company name?

Is the person who meets us at the airport, the driver as well? How many people are suppose to be in the vehicle with the passenger or passengers and are they GAP employees or subcontracted by GAP?

Thanks for your time.

When I caught my airport transfer in Lima, also after midnight, the vehicle was a small passenger van. It so happened that there were two other GAP folks also taking it but it, but they were on a different tour and so went to a different (but still nearby) hotel.

The driver will be holding a sign with your name on it as well as "GAP" in the exit area after customs, luggage pick-up, etc. There will be many people with signs, as well as friends/family waiting for their own arrivals. In other words, it is a bit of a chaotic mess. BUT.... take your time to scan the crowd and they will be there. It took me several scans to finally spot the driver. No company name, just GAP and your name on the handheld sign. Remember to have your voucher handy.

And, yes, there was an money exchange counter before this where you can gets Sols. I found the rates to be very competitive with any others that I used later in the trip. Bring pristine bills. Bills that are even slightly torn, ragged, defaced, etc. will be rejected.

Enjoy. Try the cuy. Really!!!
