Airport Service

Located in Guelph, Ontario, Red Car Service is renowned for providing ground transportation specializing in airport shuttles and custom charters since 1966. We provide comfortable, reliable, quality airport transfers from the Guelph/Wellington area and private charter services anywhere within Ontario.  

Going to the Airport

All passengers travelling TO an airport require advance reservations.  Reservation can be made through the online booking engine on our website, by phone with one of our 24 hour reservation agents or in person in our office 7 days a week from 8:00a.m. to 8:00p.m.  We request at least 48 hours notice of booking in order to provide the most flexible service possible but will do our best to accommodate last minute bookings to the best of our ability.

All reservations will receive an email confirmation detailing the booking information as well as all applicable cancellation policies.  Passengers will receive an additional email or phone call from our staff, after 3:00p.m., the day before travelling to the airport to confirm the pick up time and location.  Pick up times may change slightly due to a variety of factors (traffic, weather, scheduling, etc.)  Red Car Service recommends the minimum check-in times as suggested by Transportation Canada. However, any individual requests will be accommodated whenever possible. 

Passengers travelling to the airport will be dropped off at the door closest to your departing flight check-in location.
