Maxi Tours Transfer

My partner book a transfer with Maxi tours 8 weeks ago from bodrum airport to Akbuk for tomorrow Sunday at 2pm for 1 person ,all was confirmed including price 10 each way . This afternoon Saturday we get a phone call from them saying they could not collect for 10 we would have to pay the price of a private transfer 190tl with there company . Its the fact it gives very little time to arrange alternative , a bit like blackmail.

Here's a link to resorthoppa, of you can just google transfers bodrum to Akbuk for others.

I've a feeling Maxi Tours 'customer service' has been mentioned on here before!

Re: Maxi Tours Transfer

Normally maxi tours are great and I personally have never encountered this however in the past week I've heard of it happening to 3 others receiving emails of the same.

I'm actually booked on with them for Thursday so will be interesting if I receive such a email.. If I do I will be telling them to 'stuff' it as there's plenty of other companies out there.

Re: Maxi Tours Transfer

Con alert!!! It smells that its such short notice. As usual a decent little business gets greedy. Love Tours was always the one for me.

Re: Maxi Tours Transfer

I can't find the original list I uploaded, although it's obviously fairly old now so some of the transfer companies may not still be around, and also some of them may not have the same good reputation that they used to have, so up to yourself to decide who to use etc.

However with regards to what may be happening it's probably a good thin if people make a copy and keep it handy just in case they need to get something sorted very quickly because there is nothing worse than making last minute trawls around the internet.

************************************************** *
.
This list is something I put together from a search of the forum, unfortunately some of the information does not give any contact details so can't help you there.

Also most of these companies seem to either operate throughout the whole of Turkey or through a agency, so I have not put them into any type of area category.

One or two transfer companies that had a "really bad comments" such as "nodding off at the wheel" have not been included.
Also whilst some people have found excellent service from one company, other people may have not have received such good service from the same company.

So, basically it is up to yourself to chose who to use or not use.

If that be the case (I do not doubt it) then why book anything? There's taxis sitting there at the airport. The idea of a transfer company is a mini bus & a cheaper price.



Oldfogy, worth pointing out that on your list there are companies that go everywhere prior to your drop. Also, some of the transfer coaches sit & wait for the next plane so they get a full load...........I remember some people telling me that from time of landing at Bodrum, they arrived in Didim 3 hours later.
