We're going to Fiji in a few weeks for a wedding at the Outrigger resort on the coral coast.

Can anyone recommend an airport transfer provider?

I got an expensive quote from Rosie's for $307 FJD one way. Tourist Transport Fiji's website quoted $409 return.

Another company quoted $370 return but they don't own the vehicles, you get allocated a local driver, not sure if that is worth the risk? And it looks like you kind of have to buy a lei for $5.



Cheers

Ask the hotel, they might do transfers. When I book online I tend to book hotel transfers with it, can't remember the price but it's usually unremarkable. Taxis aren't badly priced in Fiji, but the Coral Cost is (from memory) and hour or a bit more away so taxi probably too expensive.

For returning to the airport I would pick the one that gets you to there at the earliest time possible prior to your flight.

 

I have had two occasions when I have taken shuttles back to the airport; once in New Caledonia and once in Singapore. In both cases I almost missed my flight because the providers had pre-defined times to pick you up prior to your flight, however in reality they just turned up whenever they felt like it and I nearly missed my flight. If you have extra time then at least you can start communication and enact a backup plan if they don't show up when they said they would.

I used this lot a couple of years ago and they are locally run and have a great team. Very safe drivers and happy to do a detour so you can pickup some supplies along the way.

Last time I was there we paid $150 FJD (one way) for a private car, to get to the Warwick which is further away than the Outrigger. We booked through the hotel. I'd recommend booking through the hotel.
