01 - What should I consider when booking a Südtirol Transfer?
Südtirol Transfer is an online service and therefore can only be booked online. Please understand that we cannot accept any bookings via phone or email.

02 - Why can’t I find a connection? This is how it works!
The system refers to previously defined connections to and from the railway stations to thousands of accommodation facilities. Enter your accommodation you want to visit in the search field "Accommodation". The system now scans all accommodation facilities and produces a list of search results, select the correct one from the list. A field will now open listing all the railway station(s) that the shuttle serves. Select desired station.
