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

Superorganized in every detail. ....The information before, upgrading the car without extra charge in advance, the fast and nice service at the pick up place and the reasonable price!
Ten out of ten. Both drivers were on time and professional. Would definitely use Kiwi taxis again. Communication was also good Keeping us informed of driver contact details
The driver was waiting for us at the exit, even with the plane arriving late. He was very polite, drove well, we could understand each other perfectly in english (even that it was not our first language). Everything went well and I definetly recommend the service.

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 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.

You can pay in cash. 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 in the way convenient for you.

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 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.

Use any banknotes you want. Machines selling S7 train tickets do not accept 50 euro notes.

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 ticket, so there are no discounts for children.

Expensive, unlike a bus trip for 8 euro.
