Getting up the hill-Transfers

This is the reply i got from the transfer company that i normally use:

I've just received your transfer booking form. But I want to let you know;for the Ufuk Hillside Complex we are not doing shuttle transfer. If youwant shuttle, we will drop off you in front of Akbük Tansaş, if you wantdoor to door service ou should take VIP transfer. Please let us know aboutyour transfer type and drop of/pick up point. Then I'll send youconfirmation and complete the booking. Kind Regards Şule ERGÜN -- ALTINKUMTRANSFERS.COM.

how did you get up the hill when you arrived? there having a laugh or what?

I have booked to be out there on 24 Sept for 1 week. it might take me that long to get up the hill if they want lots more money, cos i aint paying much more than i normally do.

Re: Getting up the hill-Transfers

This is a common problem with properties too high up the mountain and with no real road.

It's not just transfer companies but furniture stores & ambulances too.

If the vehicle is large (van-like) it is unsafe or too hard to get up the hill. Fair due they have let you know as a lot don't and just leave you in the middle of Akbuk.

Re: Getting up the hill-Transfers

Hi Marian,we were out at the Hillside in August.I have always used Gordion.This year they charged £40 for 1 person, £50 for 2 people and £80 for 4 adults, 1 child and an infant Private transfer/VIP.this is twice the amount I paid last year.
Maxi Tours charged £10 per person for transfer from Bodrum Airport to Tansas but wanted an extra £20 per person to go up the hill.
I have decided that car rental will be more cost effective next time

Re: Getting up the hill-Transfers

Blimey! In May we used Maxi tours who charged us £15 each and swapped us from the transfer bus to a car at the Akbuk turn. The car then took us up the hill. I know that the buses don't like going up there and they get complaints from other passengers about the extra time and some are scared. But this is taking advantage, I feel.
Wish there was a way we could arrange our own transfer system from Hillside. There must be enough of us now for a local person to make some, but not this much, money from serving us.
A car from the airport costs about £25 and then they add £15 for the driver to get it there and come back on the transfer. Even between 2 that is now cheaper than transfers.
We are out on 18th Sept and will hire a car now. If anyone else is arriving that day they are welcome to see if we are on similar or the same flights an share.
We fly at 1500h from Gatwick - prob arrive Bodrum about 2200h after formalities. (i.e handing over your £10 note!)

Re: Getting up the hill-Transfers

We also have had a problem with the same transfer company Croesus, Altinkum transfers are but a couple of the names they use. We live near King villa's which is about a mile off the main road, and were told after using them throughout the year for at least 2yrs that the drivers didn't know where the complex was, but if we booked a private transfer then they would do it. I can only assume private transfer drivers are issued with a map. lol
We now use LOVE TOURS who 2date have given us good service.
