“I think Explore should provide transport to the airport at the end of the trip on the same basis as transfers are provided on arrival. Our group had a number of different flight times through the day and some of us had a choice of spending most of the day at Cancun airport or incurring additional expense - the more so because of the distance we were staying from the airport”
