Travel Tips

Preparation is Everything

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL PRICES STATED BELOW ARE PRE-COVID AND NOW ALL COSTS HAVE INCREASED TONS, UP TO EACH VENDOR/COMPANY’S DISCRETION, PLS CALL TO CONFIRM COSTS.

We can assist you with the following transportation options. We can guide you on how to use these services, should you need assistance. Please note that our providers do not provide complimentary transportation unless you are here for a pet scan/diagnostic visit or consultation with certain clinics.

These options are available within the area of S. FL and NY. We are not responsible for their service or to be held liable for our suggestion, however we use them always and receive great, convenient service at affordable cost.

 

We highly recommend that you purchase your travel tickets after we have coordinated your service appointment(s). This enables you to have an itinerary of your appointment(s) confirmed before booking your travel. 

Transportation-Taxi Options

 

Upon arrival to any airport, we strongly suggest for you to take a yellow certified official taxi at airport OR a private driver; we do not encourage Uber or Lyft at the airport because it is not a user friendly service at the airport because over the years, we notice so many challenges with travelers finding the Uber/Lyft driver, getting lost in trying to find the driver because there are many entrances/exits, etc., cancellations back to back from the Uber driver – it is usually not a good experience.

 

Once you are settled in hotel and move around, yes, we suggest Uber/Lyft.

 

PRIVATE DRIVER: Brian Garcia:  cell: 1 (754) 400-0227 (whatsapp). 

Email: yanbrison@yahoo.com

 

You can contact him via whatsapp; share with him your travel itinerary and can pick you up at Miami Airport or Ft. Lauderdale airport. He has 2 SUVs, depending on size you need and on # of luggage. He also has a way to track your flight if you send him the itinerary. He has offered our HOPE patients pick up from Miami airport at $90+USD and from Ft. Lauderdale at $70+USD. For any other rides, you can ask him for cost. We are in no way responsible for any dealings with Mr. Garcia but simply sharing since many patients call us for a private driver option. 

 

1) UBER:  https://www.uber.com can be used in S. Florida and NY. You will need to download this application to your mobile phone prior to even landing into U.S. Set up with a credit card so that you are ready to use upon landing. You can then schedule your rides this way.

We find Lyft to be less expensive always than Uber.

Hotel: Hampton Inn & Suites Coconut Creek

Address: 5740 North State Road 7, Coconut Creek, Florida, 33073, USA +1-954-363-3000 

Corporate discounted rate at Hampton Inn Coconut Creek instructions.

1.       Patients MUST either use the online link (below) to avail themselves of the corporate rate. If you cannot use a computer, you can also call 1-855-520-5103 and use the corporate code Impression Imaging.

2.       The discount is based on seasonality and demand. For e.g. right now it is a 30% discount whereas at other times it may not even be available if the hotel is at capacity. That being said, the link will always display the best price even if the corporate rate isn’t available (which can happen but it is rare).

3.       The more we use the link, the steeper our discount will be for the next upcoming year so we should all be using this link to continue to drive price down for patients (and there is no benefit to us – the discount is entirely passed onto patients).

4.       The discount is only for the Coconut Creek Hampton Inn but it’s an ideal location as it’s on the Sawgrass and equidistant to both centers.
