- Shuttle prices will depend on how many attendees have similar arrival times, but will be between $60 - $100 per person. Driver Dave's will communicate with you in advance so you may confirm before your travel date.

Be sure to book your return ride as well. Book with Driver Dave’s as soon as you know your flight plans and at the latest, by September 20th
There are 8 car rental companies at the Halifax Airport – Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National and Thrifty.

If you want to rent a car, we highly recommend you do so in advance of arrival as there have been occasions during busy times that the companies run out of rental cars.
