In travel, a transfer is local travel arranged as part of an itinerary, typically airport to hotel and hotel to hotel.[1] Transfer has some features that distinguish it from ground transportation alternatives. These features are meeting directly in a transport hub, the opportunity to choose a car class and additional options like a baby seat.


There are few transfer classifications based on

  • route:
  • purpose:
  • number of tourists:
    • individual (one person or family)
    • group (more than four people);
  • comfort level:
    • economy
    • comfort
    • premium

The most popular tourist transfers are individual economy class transfers (about 52,3% of all orders)[citation needed].
