Transportation from the Tampa International Airport

Tampa International Airport, thirty miles from the Tradewinds Resort, is the closest major airport. The Tradewinds Resort has a partnership with Resort Transportation Services, which can arrange for exclusive and direct transportation for our group to and from the airport for $25 or less each way, depending on the number of individuals who arrive in the same timeframe.

You must reserve a seat based on your flight information and arrival time. You will be met by the driver at the baggage pickup carousel. Most flights arrive within thirty minutes of each other and so wait times for your particular group should be fairly short. Your transportation will be direct to the resort with no other stops, and all passengers will be attending the Leadership conference.

To participate, you must reserve your seat by sending an e-mail to struax@afb.net and include your arrival date, time, and flight information. Resort Transportation Services will monitor your flight and will be ready for you regardless of delays you may experience. You will be given a toll-free number to call if you need to speak with your driver.

You have other options if you do not want to use Resort Transportation Services. There are taxis and the Super Shuttle option. The cost of Super Shuttle is about the same as Resort Transportation Services but you may experience several stops at other hotels on your way to the Tradewinds resort. A taxi trip will cost around $70.

To reserve a seat with Resort Transportation Services please send an e-mail to struax@afb.net. You may also email Scott if you have any questions or concerns about transportation.
