Why do people book transfers from Vienna airport (VIE)

Transfer is a transportation service which meets and brings you exactly where you asked: a Kiwitaxi driver meets you at the airport (as close to the Arrivals as possible), at the hotel reception or at the exactly given address, helps you with your luggage and brings you fast- track to your destination.

You can pre-order inexpensive taxi transfer to the city center or to the airport, comfortable car transfer for the family with children, Economy minivan for a tourist group or a Luxury transfer. The transfer cost from Vienna airport (VIE) is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises : either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.

Customer feedback

Thank you for an excellent service. I found the driver waiting for me with my name on a piece of paper. He was very polite and courteous and the journey was very smooth. I was the only person on the bus. I will definitely use this service again.
Everything was great!!! We were lucky with the driver that met us on time at the airport, helped with luggage and drove fast to the hotel. During the road we learned a lot of useful thing about the city life. Highly recommended service!
I liked that the cabdriver offered Wi-Fi to me. It is very useful to get in touch with your family after arriving to Moscow if you haven’t got a Russian SIM card.
Hello, the service was excellent. The driver very kind and helpful. The possibility to pay in cash was very good as I do not have a credit card. I would definitively recommend Kiwitaxi to all of my friends and would choose it in any country where it operates. Thanks again
The service was excellent. Easy to purchase and quick confirmation. Good price for this service with a return discount. No delays, the driver was very warm and nice. The trip was smooth and ok.
Service from the driver was excellent. He was early and amenable for my family. The vehicle was in excellent condition with booster seats provided as asked for. Very impressed with the service and overall quality.
Service was excellent, driver was on time, courteous and very helpful in guiding/informing me about the city tourism, as well as ensuring I was safe & inside my hotel before departing. Certainly worth the money! very glad I decided to book with Kiwitaxi ahead of time. Will likely be using again for future travels, and would definitely recommend to others.
Arrived on time, good polite driver who drove safely and had room for a lot of luggage. 10pnts. Halvor

Transfer vs. Other Ways to Get from Vienna Schwechat Airport

From Schwechat, one can travel both to Vienna and to other cities in Austria and Europe: Salzburg, Innsbruck, Budapest, Bratislava, and others. So that your journey goes well, choose a transport for your route in advance.

How to get from Vienna Airport to Vienna city center or the other way round

Schwechat is 14–16 km away from the capital of Austria. There are different types of transport running on this route:

  • buses: express shuttle Vienna Airport Lines, as well as transit Eurolines;
  • different trains and commuter trains (City Airport Train CAT, Intercity Express ICE, city railway S7);
  • taxi cabs from Vienna Airport ordered via the smartphone app or taken on the spot;
  • a transfer booked in advance.

Ground transport is well-developed here: all trains, commuter trains and buses from Vienna Schwechat are new, with comfortable carriages and soft seats. Trains and buses have only two drawbacks: they do not run at night and some line buses are not very frequent.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Vienna Airport to the city center (ordered via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

More comfort, the same price. Taxi from the app in Vienna costs as much as the transfer. But the latter has a number of advantages: meeting with a name sign, help with luggage and many more. For the same money, a taxi driver will only take you from A to B, without any personal service.

Pay in advance. Taxi services, like myTaxi and other Viennese taxi companies, accept payments only by the card, tied to the app. Even if you want to pay in cash, it will not be possible. With Kiwitaxi, you pay on the website in advance and avoid problems with cash.

Travel with a licensed driver. As in other countries, Uber drivers in Vienna can start working without the license. It helps them decrease fares, but also escape liability for a passenger’s safety. All Kiwitaxi drivers have the license.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Schwechat Airport (taken on the spot)

Advantages of a private transfer

No lines. As in other big airports, there is a special staff person in Schwechat who allocates passengers to taxis. You cannot simply choose a car and get into — there is a special queue. Kiwitaxi driver is waiting only for you.

20% cheaper. Taxi to downtown costs around 40–45 euro, and a transfer from Vienna Airport to your hotel — 37 euro. For the price of a taxi you can even order a minivan or minibus in advance.

Transfer from Vienna Schwechat Airport vs. Trains

Advantages of a private transfer

Do not deal with ticket machines. Train ticket machines offer a limited set of languages, and the majority of stations have Austrian names. If you have no desire to deal with a foreign language, order our service which is available in five languages including English.

No need to study tariff zones. Vienna and Schwechat Airport are located in different tariff zones. In order to get to the city hotel, you will have to buy two tickets: one — for a train trip in the airport zone, and the other one — for a metro trip to your hotel in the city.


Disadvantage of a private transfer

Several times more expensive. A train ticket costs from 5 to 11 euro.

Transfer from Vienna Airport to the city center vs. Buses

Advantages of a private transfer

Travel even at night, which is not possible for buses: they run only till 00:30.

No need to wait for half an hour — the interval between buses. Booking a car with Kiwitaxi, you depart as soon as you arrive at the airport.

Disadvantages of a private transfer

Children under 6 travel for free, so, if you have a group of small children with you, the trip will not be expensive. In case of our service, you pay for the car, and not for a ticket, so there are no discounts for children.

Expensive, unlike a bus trip for 8 euro.
