We have researched and used many other airport transfer companies in the past before finally settling on the one we currently recommend for car, van & bus private transfers. They are on this page because they charge very competitive prices, they are reliable, always on time, have fantastic vehicles and offer a great personalised service. Plus if they are late for no particular reason you can ask for 100% refund - wow! If we start to get complains about poor service we'll go find another transfer company, but right now these guys are doing a great job based on the feedback we keep getting, see the bottom of this page for guest comments.
This local transfer company is owned by Azeem who also runs Taxi 2000. A company which has been in the industry for over 20 years, so they really know their stuff. Pick ups are always on time, no waiting around at the airport and back in plenty of time for your flight departure. They have 4 really modern air conditioned Toyota Alphard Hybrid's plus a recent purchase of 2 new 15 seater mini vans, 30 seat and 50 seat busses due in Jan 2017. These Alphards are amazing with tons of space. Very happy and friendly team. They supply baby seats or baby capsule free of charge which is really good. Oh, they will also meet you at the airport in arrivals holding a sign with your name on it, so everything is nice and easy. The Alphard's can take up to 5 adults with luggage and 10 in the mini van with luggage. To book just fill in the form below. 100% Fijian owned.
Bonus: FREE stop at the supermarket, ATM bottle shop or any other on the way to your hotel
Special Airport Passes: You'll notice the drivers wearing a blue security pass, this means the company has paid a lot of money to get the right access into the airport arrivals area especially to meet you. Without a blue pass, drivers have to stand out where the taxis are.
Insurance: I've personally seen the insurance cover from Dominion Insurance for all of their vehicles. Plus the payment receipt. You have to watch things in Fiji, you might be shown a policy but doesn't mean its actually paid for! The vehicles are covered for $5m passenger risk for tourists only, so they aren't insured for any other purpose. They're FULLY covered which means so are you - whew!
Drivers: I've meet 2 of them so far and both great guys, lovely and happy as all Fijian people are. They tell me they have passed defensive driving courses. I've not been out with them to fully test this, but from what I've heard they are very careful drivers.
GPS: All the vehicles are installed with a GPS device so head office can see what their drivers are up to. It's very cool, they were showing me on the computer, it even tells them if a car is speeding - big brother is watching!
It had to or they just couldn't keep up. You'll find 2 apps installed on the mobile phones of all the drivers, the first is the Fiji Airways app, this gives them up to the minute flight arrival and departure times so they are on time even if you're early. The other is a very cool Calendar manifest which is shared by their booking agent and is updated immediately when a booking comes in plus sends out reminders for upcoming bookings. Everyone has plenty of data on their phones (a common problem here in Fiji) so there's no excuse for bad service. Check out the instant booking widget below for quotes and secure bookings, its fantastic. It's a fully automated system so no excuse for a car not showing up! Although we've taken the time to vet these guys thoroughly we're not at the airport making sure everything runs smoothly, we rely on you to tell us these things.
As you can imagine drivers are out on the road doing transfers all day and have no time to get on their computer to give you a quote personally plus taking payments online is challenging here in Fiji.
Their booking agent HotFiji.deals has solved all this for them with that cool instant quote and booking widget above. They are super quick on email, very professional and are experts at booking transfers. They are also based right here in Nadi and work very closely with all their transfer drivers. Surprisingly good is the fact that there are no extra charges like booking fees or credit card fees - nice one. Once you book they'll send you a confirmation voucher with your payment receipt attached. All the money stays in Fiji.
This might seem a bit scary but in fact its a really good way to go. It's good for you and good for the drivers. It's so much easier for the drivers to concentrate on picking you up and making sure your journey is a happy one. If they have to worry about asking for cash, then trying to keep it safe, it can distract everyone. For you there is no need to worry about having cash on hand, just jump in the car and you're off. And yes, their booking agent is really good and pays them out on a very regular bases, and fairly too. Ok, they take their cut, it has to pay for the fees and their time, but it's not huge.
If full payment isn't taken, other more unsavoury characters at the airport or your hotel are only too willing to make you think they are your driver when in fact they are not. Believe me its cut throat out there, some will do anything to get your business. The other good thing is all the money paid for transfers stays in Fiji with the local drivers that provide the transfers.

We had a wonderful stay in Fiji and love the Fijian people. Your service to and from the airport was wonderful . Our plane was late from Sydney and your staff were there waiting for us. They were very friendly and extremely patient. The bus was great and the vans and drivers extremely helpful and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company and will definitely use it again. Thank you once again. Lynette

I am happy to comment on your transfer services. Firstly, yes the driver was on time and he was extremely friendly and stopped for us on the way to the Hotel to buy some local produce. The vehicle was excellent for us with child capsules as requested. Clean and very efficient air conditioning. The pricing was very competitive and if we were to come to Fiji again, we would certainly use your service again. We we're very impressed with your level of service and the fact that you were readily available for changes etc. Thank you for helping to make our special holiday hassle free. Robert.

We used your vehicle(s) 3 times during our stay and I am pleased to say that I was more than satisfied with the entire experience. Your staff who met us at Nadi airport were friendly and efficient, as was your driver. Your staff was very helpful when we changed our pickup time from the Warrick on New Year’s Day, and the driver was early but prepared to wait until we were ready – better to be early than late. Not only will I use your service again, but will happily refer you to friends and family. Amanda.

Bula Sandra, I wanted to provide some feedback on using your direct shuttle service from Nadi Airport to Denerau on 9/7/16. From the moment we were met by your guides with shell necklace and cold waters, we felt extremely well looked after – what a fabulous start to our Fiji holiday! They happily stopped at a supermarket for some items and then gave us an informative trip out to the marina – pointing out different areas, improvements and events on our way. We will definitely be recommending your service to others and will use it again on a return trip, hopefully, in the future! Vinaka, Kathryn from Australia.

We were so grateful to our driver for getting us to the airport and give him our warmest regards and so glad he got back ok (if he had'nt tried to get thro the water we would certainly have not got off the island when we did, we did wonder that night at the airport how he got on in Sigatoka getting thro the water there. I have to say that night at the airport at 3.00am I have never seen rain as heavy as that was and we do get rain here but not as forceful as that. So a big thank you all for yours efforts and I think what people tend to forget is that the transfer to and from the airport is a crucial part of the holiday without it we would not get to where we need to be to enjoy our time on holiday. So once again a big thank you to all of you there and hope the weather keeps fine and keeps you guys busy cause you certainly deserve it. Jim

We were extremely happy with our transfers to and from the airport and resort. The staff and drivers were very friendly and curtious and on time which made the experience very enjoyable. The vehicle was nice, clean and as expected and fitted nicely with the baby seats as requested. Other transfer services charge extra for child seats but they were included with Hot Fiji Transfers. I travel to Fiji quite often for holidays and it is the first time that I have used the services of Hot Fiji Deals and definitely will do so again. Thank you very much. Regards Craig & family
