Galveston Island is located about 50 miles southeast of downtown Houston. If possible, you will want to fly in to Houston Hobby Airport (HOU) as that is only 41 miles from Galveston. George Bush International Airport (IAH) is approximately 70 miles away.
If you are not renting a car, the best way to get to Galveston is by shuttle. SAIA has arranged for a discounted rate on the Galveston Express Shuttle. The Galveston Express Shuttle operates out of both airports and runs approximately every hour. Special SAIA prices are $27 from Houston Hobby Airport, and $31.50 from George Bush International Airport. To reserve your transfer at the discounted prices, call 409.762.4397. Advanced reservations are required. Reservations can be made online at www.galvestonexpress.com, however the discount is only available if you call directly. You can book roundtrip transfers, so have your flight information ready.
Note, whatever your transfer plans (rental car, shuttle, etc.), be sure to plan in advance as a cab from Houston Hobby to the Tremont House hotel will cost approximately $115.
