What I have found is that if you purchase air through Avalon -with no pre/post days, transfers are included.
If you buy your own air and have no pre/post days, you can purchase a transfer and it is somewhat reasonable.
If you have any type of pre/post days, even if you purchase air through Avalon, transfers are exorbadent!
Ex: we fly into Munich. We thought about flying in a day or two early. If we arrive "on time" our transfers are $38pp, but if we arrive early (even if we book the room and our air through Avalon) our transfers are $52 PER PERSON!!!
While I realize that the Munich airport is quite a ways from our hotel, I have found that it is right on the train route and we can purchase a group ticket for 20€ ( $26). Quite a difference if you ask me!!!
Research costs. You can certainly find cheaper options out there.
