The booking process - how it works
1. To ensure a smooth airport meet & greet service it is essential you provide your destination airport and flight number. If not provided at the time of booking please e-mail this to [email protected]
a) Please alert us if members of your party are flying from other airports at the time of booking. Provide their flight details so Golf-Drives can support you should flights be delayed.
2. Please check all the transfer details on your Golfbreaks booking confirmation, ensure all details concerning transfers are correct.
a) Amendments to the transfer can be made up to 48hrs prior to your travel date although please note significant change may result in increased costs or unavailable due to vehicle availability b) All transfers are pre-booked, then transfers to the hotel after golf is given and allocated time of 6.5 hours after the tee time booked. If this doesn’t work for you please tell us so we can amend as soon as possible as it is very difficult to change times on the day, particularly for groups.
3. We will provide your name as lead group organiser and mobile telephone number to Golf-Drives. The day prior to departure Golf-Drives will send you, the lead organiser an SMS notification to your mobile telephone to confirm the pick-up time.

- If your flight is delayed by less than one hour, then your normal transfer terms for waiting times will apply.
