In addition, our services guarantee you the possibility of modifying or cancelling your booking up to 48 hours in advance, in case of any unforeseen event or last-minute change, whether due to flight delay, cancellation or change of dates, among other reasons.  

Once you land, we recommend that you follow the indications on the information panels that you will find from the moment you leave the plane until you reach the place where your transfer is waiting for you.
