Important Information Concerning Macau Packages

Please note that most of the packages for Macau hotels are based on Hotels’ Special offers and Free Shuttle Services provided by the concerned hotels. As such, we do not charge you anything for transfers within Macau – from Ferry Terminal / Airport to the booked hotel, or Vice-Versa.

The schedules for the free shuttle services for these hotels may be downloaded below. It may also be noted that these schedules may change at any time at the sole discretion of the hotels. Should a free shuttle service be unavailable at a particular desired timing, the guests would be required to arrange their own transport from the Ferry Terminal / Airport to the hotel, or vice-versa. We regret that in such a case, Continental would not be able to offer any refund, as this service is not being charged for. It would also be highly appreciated if this information could be shared with the guests at the time of their booking.

Other Important Guidelines
