Transfer from Bodrum Airport to Gumbet usually takes about 40 mins via private transfer, taxis or coach transfer. Transfer via shuttle or buses will take about one hour or more depending the stops.
We recommend private shuttles as it is by far the most convenient, safe and quick way of getting from BJV to your hotel in Gumbet, and from your hotel in Gumbet to BJV.
Private Shuttle and Airport Transfers to/from Gumbet
If you are a group or a family with kids or having lots of luggage with you, than we highly recommend you to take private transfers for your hotel as they offer a fixed rate, comfortable and safe transfer to your hotel in Gumbet. The Havas airport shuttles will bring you to at the Intercity Bus Terminal of Bodrum and you’ll need to take a taxi from there again which will harder for you with your kids and luggage.

When you take private transfers, the driver also meets you inside the airport terminal with your name written on a plate.
