Let me also say thanks to your family for such a heart wrenching sacrifice. My husband is a retired from the Navy so anyone who gives their life to ensure our freedom is very near and dear to our hearts. So happy you and the kids will be joining us ! I look forward to spending our vacation together.

SAS Transportation Florida Question?

I made a reservation using the website for SAS transportation from our Ft. Lauderdale Hotel to Miami Port. I had a question about where to put my hotel information (all they had was an Airline fill-in box) so I called the phone number 954-600-0240 and got a recording referring me back to the website.

I recieved an email from them today, saying this is confirmation for transportation on May 6 and that Hotel pick ups begin at 11:00am.

No confirmation number and no exact time for pick up.

I also noticed that the email had the same phone number that is a recording, no live person and no contact number for dispatch.

Is anyone else using SAS Transportation? Do you have a confirmation number, exact pick up time, and dispatch contact phone number (in case there is a problem)?

Maybe it's just me, but it makes me nervous not to have a contact phone number to a live person.

Thank-you,

You can post a reply or PM me.

We've made reservations with SAS as well, and got the same email you're referring to. It listed our hotel, the date, and that hotel pickups start at 11am. I figure it will be ok, SAS seems to have a very good reputation.

Yes, but...what if...there is no way to reach them morning of. Things go wrong even with companies with good reputations. The bus hired by the DIS group in Barcelona failed to come to the hotel we were staying at. Without a phone number to contact them we might still be standing on that curb!

Tim, we are using JR Shuttle Service. Got an exact pickup time, which we picked, and an invoice with a phone number. I think I would reply to the email and ask for a direct number "just in case" morning of. Especially since they do not give you a specific pick up time. Start at 11, does that mean you wait until 12:00 or 12:30 before you start to get concerned? I'd not be comfortable with that. I need more control than that I guess.
