On this page, we have compiled frequently asked questions into categorized sections. Please refer to them as a helpful resource when using our services.
Airport Transfer (Pickup)
Where should I meet the driver at the airport?
To avoid congestion, we have designated specific meeting locations for each airport. When you book our service, we will send you a confirmation letter that includes a map and photos of the meeting location. Please refer to that information for the exact meeting point.
The flight seems to be delayed (or arriving early)
We constantly monitor flight information in our customer support team. The meeting time is set according to the actual arrival time, and if the flight arrives early or is delayed, we adjust the meeting time based on the actual arrival time. Please be aware of this in advance.
What should I do if I can’t make it to the meeting time?
If you are unable to make it to the meeting time, such as due to getting held up at baggage inspection, please contact our support immediately. If more than 30 minutes have passed since the meeting time, a waiting fee of 1,000 yen per 10 minutes will be charged.
Is it possible to request to pick up someone other than myself at the airport?
Yes, it is possible. It is a common request to arrange airport pickups for family members, superiors, or colleagues. For more information, please refer to the Arrange Transfer for someone else page.
Airport Transfer (Drop-off)
How far in advance should I set the pickup time before the departure time of the flight?
Typically, it takes approximately 1 hour from Osaka city center to Kansai International Airport, and around 1.5 hours from Kyoto city center. It is desirable to arrive at the airport approximately 2.5 hours before the departure time. Based on this information, it is recommended to schedule the pickup time from Osaka city center to Kansai Airport 3.5 hours before the departure time, and from Kyoto city center to Kansai Airport 4 hours before the departure time.
What airports can you provide transportation to?
Our main service is Airport Transfer to Kansai International Airport. However, we can also provide transportation services for Airport Transfer to Itami Airport and Airport Transfer to Kobe Airport. For more details, please refer to the respective service pages.
Is it possible to come and pick me up from two different hotels?
Yes, it is possible. If the two hotels are within 2km of each other, we can provide pickups from both locations for an additional flat fee of 2,000 JPY. For pickups from two locations that are more than 2km apart, a separate estimate will be provided.
Is it possible to come and pick me up from a private house?
Yes, it is possible. We often provide pickups from private houses in addition to hotels. Our drivers are all from the Kansai region, so they have detailed knowledge of the roads and can go to any location in the Kansai area for pickups.
When is the recommended deadline to make a reservation?
We do not have a specific rule regarding the deadline for bookings, but we recommend making your reservation well in advance. As the date approaches, it becomes more challenging to secure the vehicles. As a guideline, we suggest submitting your reservation at least one week prior to your desired date to increase the chances of securing the vehicle.
Is it possible to make a reservation for someone other than myself?
Yes, it is possible. We often receive requests to arrange airport transfers for family members, superiors, or bosses. For more details, please refer to the Arrange Transfer for someone else page.
