Paying for transfer

Recommended Posts

Greetings!  Very quick question - hopefully someone who has done this (or tried to) can answer this question.


We have decided to book our own flights (and saved a ton of money doing so).  When we get to San Juan, we are comfortable taking a taxi.  However, when the cruise ends in Manaus, Brazil, we definitely want to do the Viking transfers to get us to the airport.  We have $500 pp Viking promotional OBC, and will have the travel agent's OBC, so we have a lot of OBC.  The Viking OBC can be spent ahead of time (not sure all the rules, but definitely shore excursions).


So, here is my question:  Can transfers be bought while on the cruise itself using OBC?  Is this a good idea, or do you run the risk of being shut out?  Anyone have any experience using the Viking promotional OBC to buy transfers?

Pat,  you might be safer asking this question directly of Viking.  Either your TA can call or you can email tellus@vikingcruises.com -- I like the latter so you can have the answer in writing.

I have booked a transfer to the airport from the ship on board before.  We always book ur own flights and on our last cruise we decided to book a transfer to the airport.   We went to guest services and arranged it.  It was no problem.
