Most BDEC attendees will be flying into Charleston International Airport.

Travel time from the airport to the hotel should take around 20-30 minutes, depending on traffic.

Taxi Cab

Taxi cabs are available at the airport, and will cost ~$40 for a one way trip from the airport to the hotel.

Car Service

Private car services are also available for reservation from two vendors in the area for a fee of ~$35. Reserving a car is a great way to ensure that your ride is waiting for you at the airport. These services must be arranged in advance!
