The Orient Express

Transportation Services

Margarita Station has been coordinating airport pick-ups from NAIA (Manila) since 1992. At that time we were the first company to offer this service from Angeles since the closure of the USAF base on Clark. There are now about 15 other companies in this business, but we still have the best reputation for service.

Manila (NAIA) We provide a variety of air-conditioned cars & vans that will pick you up at any of the three international terminals, the domestic terminal or any location in Manila.

All our vehicles are late models and in good operating condition.

We provide your choice of cold drinks for the two+ hour trip from Manila to Angeles City. For more information, check the drink menu further down this page. 

Please Note!​​​​​​​​​

Clark Air Base (Diosdado Macapagal International Airport) 

We no longer provide transportation to or from DMIA.  

The "Taxi mafia" at this airport has consistently threatened our drivers and none of them are willing to service Clark any more.

We also provide transportation to/from any point on Luzon. For more details please contact our reservations office at +63 45-892-6548 or via email at

Basic Information

  1. All our vehicles are based in Angeles City 
    • This make it easy for us to arrange for your friends in Angeles to ride with our driver to meet you - at no extra charge
  2. The price we charge is per-vehicle, not per-passenger  
  3. Our drivers will meet any commercial flight, or pick you up at any Manila location 24 hours-a-day. 
  4. NAIA Arrival Information for first time travelers & Instructions on how to find your driver. [CLICK HERE]
  5. Short Notice Pickups [CLICK HERE] (less than 36 hours before your arrival time)
  7. PAYING:  You do not need to get any Pisos in the airport as the rate is usually quite a bit lower than outside. If you need something on the way, the driver will have enough Pisos for a snack or whatever (just tell him you will pay him back when you get to Angeles, or he may forget he has money in his pocket!!).
  8. BEVERAGES: Our vehicles always have a cooler stocked with your choice of drinks. 

    Current drink rates are:

Mineral Water


Bottled Sodas


Canned Sodas


San Miguel Beer (SMB)


San Miguel Light (SML)


If you forgot to specify your choice of drinks, or if the driver does not have the drinks you requested, just ask him to stop in Manila and pick them up.   He will purchase them and even if they cost more, you will be billed only at the rate above.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are the advantages of using your service over getting a taxi at the airport.


We closely monitor the drivers schedules so they are well rested for the grueling trip from Angeles to Manila and back to Angeles (usually 5-8 hours for a round trip).

Additionally, if you accidentally leave something in the vehicle it will be returned to you. If you leave your passport, plane ticket or other items in a taxi, consider it LOST.

Beverage service (see above).

Well maintained vehicles with good air conditioners.


What if my flight is delayed?


Once at the airport, the drivers monitor the flight status on the airport monitors so they will know if your flight has been delayed.

They will wait as long as required (same day) for delayed flights. Before they leave the airport, they are required to contact our office so we can arrange alternate transportation.


What if I have problems with the driver or the service.


Your driver should give you a feedback form. Write down any problem you had with the driver, the vehicle, the beverage service, etc and bring the form in to a manager at Margarita Station. Or, come in between 9 & 5 and ask to talk to Rica or Aida. 

If we know about a problem right away, we can take corrective action to prevent others from getting a driver with an attitude or a vehicle with a bum air-conditioner.

If you have additional questions contact our office at bookings@acmargarit​​​​​

We have been coordinating airport pick-ups since 1992. We have a very good staff, good drivers, & reliable vehicles. So if we confirm your pick-up, we will be there.

Occasionally, individuals book a vehicle and then walk outside the airport and barter with a taxi instead of following the instructions for meeting their driver.

If you make a reservation and we send a vehicle to the airport, we will hold you liable to reimburse us for the costs we incur.
