Transfer in Colombia
When it comes to Colombia, you first remember scary stories about drug cartels and the cruel cocaine king Pablo Escobar. There are truly lots of places related to him in his hometown of Medellin. But Colombia is also known for the famous singer Shakira. In her birthplace, Barranquilla, there is even a sculpture built in her honor. Also, one of the largest carnivals in the world takes place here. Besides, in this country, one can find the Lost City (Ciudad Perdida), the crystal clear river of Cano Cristales, the Cathedral of Zipaquira built within a salt mine, and a variety of interesting museums in its capital — Bogota.
In Colombia, it is strictly recommended to use only official taxi services. There is a high rate of crime in the country, and tourists get robbed here more often each year, so never catch a car on the street. Official taxis are yellow-colored and have checkers on their doors and yellow lamps on their roofs. They can be ordered by phone. Also, you can use mobile apps for that. Though drivers of official taxis in Colombia use meters, you can bargain with them anyway. Note that a meter shows not a monetary unit, but a conventional one. What it equals is specified in a price list which must be found in each car. Also, such vehicles are required to have stickers with carrier’s tariffs on their doors or windshields. If you are going to the airport, you will be charged around 1.5 dollars extra.
If you are concerned about your safety in Colombia, it is better to use the Kiwitaxi transfer service. A transfer is booked in advance, at least 48 hours before departure, so a car will be waiting for you in the specified place at the time indicated by you. This is especially important in case you need to travel at nighttime. You won’t have to go outside waiting for a vehicle and, thus, risk getting robbed. Besides, Kiwitaxi transfer prices are rather clear. All rates are shown on the website, visible to users immediately, and remain fixed after booking. You can order a transfer and pay for it (fully or partially) online. If you are traveling with children, add a child seat to your booking. And if you are traveling in a large group, you can choose one of our minibuses.
