These scheduled trip times aim to accord with the known flight times.

                                          Last service from the airport is 19:30,


Private Transfers

As is the case now, we will run at any time, to any place, to suit clients' requirements.

Please note that flight arrivals after 19:30 must be a private transfer

Premium Seat-in-Coach

Private transfers provide the maximum level of Covid-19 isolation and safety. However, we have another option.

Supplementing our regular Seat-in-Coach service we are offering a Premium Service for those who may be nervous about travelling with strangers in the close confines of a vehicle, but are not prepared to pay for a dedicated, private vehicle.

As well as applying all the standard precautions of the regular service (as spelt out here) our premium offering will provide passengers:
• Greater distancing. Passengers will be seated such that no one will be seated next to them. That is, the adjoining seat will be empty.
• Their seating position will be nominated ahead of time and ‘reserved’ with their name.
• These passengers will board last.
• They will be seated as close to the front of the vehicle as possible.
 Passengers will effectively be provided two seats. The retail rates are:

• Airport/Port Douglas - $66
• Airport/Palm cove - $36


Way Ahead

Our intention is to revisit the airline schedules on at least a weekly basis and we will adjust the timetable as necessary. 

There may be some inconvenience for travellers. Hopefully you will be understanding. Here are some possibilities:

  • There will be occasions when a service will be meeting  two or more closely-timed flights.

  • Customers may be asked to wait for longer than usual periods, or head to the airport earlier than the norm.   

    We reserve the right to amend or cancel services as we see fit, but we won't leave anyone 'in the lurch'.

    • Customers will be notified and alternatives proposed.

    • For instance, they may be reassigned to a code-share company.

    • Private transfers will always be available.

    Communication is the key.

    • Customers must leave their phone number when booking.
    • Customers are requested to be flexible if they are asked to take a later or an earlier transfer service.

Covid - Safety Plan

Exemplar follows all Covid-19 mitigation processes as regulated by Qld Health, we are currently untertaking the formal accreditation process sponsored by the Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC).  Read more.
