Reasonable cost for transportation ?

Hi fellow T/A's, we are a family of four adults with luggage arriving at Tagbiliran Airport on 20 December and staying at Bohol Beach Club. The hotel has quoted Php 900 per trip for 4 in an aircon van. I see many posts relating to transportation and fares but I'm not sure that these answers suffice when there are 4 adults with luggage. Can someone please offer an opinion.

Thanks

I paid 600 pesos for my solo saloon car ride with my backpack & Samsonite hardcase luggage.. from Tagbilaran Airport to my guesthouse on Bolod Beach , just further down from Bohol Beach Club...

If 3 of you are able to squeeze yourself among the rear passenger seats & have only a single normal size backpack & hardcase luggage , then perhaps 600 pesos is the normal price then..

If you can't & need a bigger minivan instead , then 900 pesos is just slightly higher than the average price(Bohol Beach Club is a high end resort & thus the prices)

Boyet Bensi is frequently recommended in this Bohol forums, as a driver cum travel guide & you can perhaps look to him for a price quotation.. as comparison

Bohol Travel Buddy is another option..

Cheers & Enjoy!!

P900 is reasonable enough.

But avoid naldax as they have no regard to forum rules and spamming a forum.

We paid ₱600 for a van we got from the airport to our resort in Panglao. The ₱900 being charged by Bohol Beach Club is reasonable because the van will come from Panglao to the airport (maybe without a passenger) just to pick you up.

True. But the van from the airport may also go back to the airport empty after dropping off
