We are wondering how to get to your hotel from the airport at 1:40am (in the middle of the night)...DO we take a taxi?? also--do we pay the driver in US funds or do we exchange money?? thank you
We do provide free shuttle from Terminal 1 & 2 from 5am to 1am. You need to proceed to Ground Transportation Counter. Since you will be arriving around 1.40am regret that you need to get a taxi to reach the hotel.
Taxi ride will be approximately 15 - 20 minutes and cost around SGD$15-$20 (do take note of the extra midnite charge). Some of the taxi do accept credit card payment
beside Singapore currency.
1. Change your money in the airport
2. Grab a cab to your hotel (less than 15minutes)
3. Take a good rest in the hotel
there is a taxi rank at the airport, and it shouldn't cost you more than 10-15SJD. The shuttle bus runs every hour to the hotel, but that depends on which terminal you get out of. I had to go back a terminal with my luggage to get to the next terminal, so I opted to take the taxi. Most taxi drivers seem to know where that hotel is, so don't be concerned. And yes, change your money at the airport, definitely.
Personally I took a taxi. The shuttle only runs at certain times. Change money in the airport - much cheaper than at a hotel.
You could get transportation services at the airport just before you get out of the terminal with this option you pay in advance, alternatively take a taxi and some accept credit cards . At the terminal you will easily find money exchange facilities.
As I recall the hotel provides a shuttle from and to the airport every hour, please contact the hotel with regards to timings as it depends on which terminal you will be taking the shuttle if available.
At that time of night I would pop out the front door and take a taxi. At times is can be a wait for the Taxi. Many of the taxis take credit cards otherwise just a small conversion will be needed for cash.
If you book direct with the hotel then I believe they have a shuttle bus available however you would need to confirm with hotel. I would just catch a taxi, organise some Singapore dollars.
We had a taxi from the airport which is about 5 miles, otherwise talk to the hotel they can organise a cab.
If you want to pre-book and pay for a private transfer I'd recommend a company called "Tour east", they're the biggest in Asia and I have used them in Singapore.
Hope this helps
We used USD but changed to local currency as there is sometimes quite a large difference in the charges between the two currencies; we had no problem using either. Have a great time.
You will just miss the last shuttle bus provided by the hotel so you will need a taxi. You will need to pay in S$ and you can exchange money at Changi airport. Taxis are cheap (compared to Australia anyway) and will be a S$20 or so fare.
Only charge about $15-20 dollars for a taxi to Changi village, the hotel canalso send a car to colelct if you pre arrange. Have a lovely time.
