Royal Limo Service Company in Vancouver provides luxury transportation from YVR Airport to downtown Vancouver and Whistler during the holidays.
Vancouver, BC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/24/2018 --The Vancouver Airport is located just south of the city on Sea Island in Richmond. It is the 2nd busiest airport in the country, behind Toronto's Pearson airport. Vancouver airport serves all 4 continents with daily flights to Asia, Europe, Oceania, the US, Mexico and South America.
The Vancouver Airport is often rated in the top ten in many surveys when it comes to service, accessibility, cleanliness, friendliness and the ease of checking in.
The Vancouver airport is about 15 kilometer away from the city center and takes about 20 minutes by car when there is no traffic but during a typical work day, expect the drive to last about 40 minutes.
Once people arrive at Vancouver airport, they have several options of getting to the downtown area;
Taxis do run from Vancouver airport to the downtown and have flat fees. In general the fee is about $35 plus gratuity (20%). Most of the taxis do accept credits cards and can be found just outside the baggage pickup area. However, the downside of taxis is that they are often small and have a limited capacity for luggage. And they usually won't take in more than 2-3 people. You should also be aware that the taxi fare also depends on the exact location you want to travel and can be much higher.
The Vancouver airport sky train is also one of the best ways to get to the downtown area. The travel time is about 30 minutes. The station is located in the airport parking lot. It does not operate all night. During the day hours, the sky train runs every 5-7 minutes. The fare from the airport to the downtown area is $9. There are all types of discounts for seniors, students and others who regularly utilize the public transit system. It is not an ideal way to travel if you have many pieces of luggage.
At the moment there is no Uber or Lyft service from the Vancouver airport to the downtown; in fact no ride sharing services are allowed in the entire province of British Columbia.
There is limousine service from the airport to the downtown area. Royal Limo Service Vancouver offers 24/7 service at very affordable rates.
