Can you please advise on best transportation method for airport xfer at Beaches? If I book through a travel agent, do I need to request a hotel shuttle, or is it the same as the airport van?

Your TripGuy agent can definitely walk you thru this - hence, why an agent who specializes in Beaches would be great to partner with.  The short answer is that we include your flight information on your reservation so Beaches knows what flight you are expected on and they have the staff at the lounge with a list.  They will get you on the next vehicle to the property.
