Albania is the most mysterious country in Europe with a unique language that does not belong to any linguistic family of the world. The country is also interesting due to the fact that in the days of communism about 900 thousand bunkers were built there, and they can be found in the most unexpected places, for example, on the beaches. There are several monuments to Mother Teresa in Albania. Although she was born in the capital of Macedonia, Skopje, she was an Albanian by birth. The city of Saranda on the Ionian Sea is not as popular as other resorts of the world, but it's good: there is more than enough place on the beach.
There are four ways of traveling around Albania, no matter whether you are going to the airport or anywhere else: buses, shuttle buses, taxis, and transfers. The official taxi in Albania can be found only in Tirana. It can be distinguished by the red "ATEx" logo on a yellow background. You can either book it by phone, or find it near big hotels. Private taxicabs are more common here. But hailing a taxi is not accepted in Albania. Drivers themselves will not approach you as well, even if they see that you need a taxi. The thing is that the taxation of taxi drivers is very strict here. If the police notice that drivers discuss a trip with a client, they will be accused of illegal business. And if the client approaches the taxi driver, it means the latter simply renders a free of charge service to the tourist. Private taxi cabs can be distinguished from ordinary cars only by an open door. In most cases, cabs are not equipped with taximeters, so it is better to negotiate the cost of the trip in advance. Be sure to bargain, as drivers tend to demand a double price. Study the route, if possible: the driver can choose a longer way.
If you do not want to become a part of the illegal business in a foreign country, the Kiwitaxi transfer service is the best option for you, as it is a guarantee of a comfortable and safe trip. All our drivers have a decent experience and a special license for passenger transportation. The fare is fixed and it is known in advance. It will be written next to the description of the car after the booking. The price cannot be changed after you made a prepayment, even if the euro rises sharply. Our transfer driver always builds the safest and shortest route from or to the airport of Albania in advance and takes into account possible traffic jams. The Kiwitaxi service is safe for traveling with a child, as you are guaranteed to have a child seat if you specify that in advance. You can also order a group transfer if you are traveling with a large group. We have minivans and minibuses for this purpose. With the Kiwitaxi transfer service, you can go to any address in Albania or neighboring countries. If the route you need is not available on the site, leave a request and we will respond within 48 hours.
