Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Cairo International Airport

Cairo International Airport is the second largest in Africa. It has four terminals, the fourth one opens only during the Hajj period. Terminal 1 is located 3 kilometers away from the other two terminals. You can move between buildings by free shuttles and automatic monorail. Experienced tourists, however, do not recommend traveling by bus, since they are usually very crowded. Important: you will not be allowed into the terminal if you arrive more than 3 hours before departure. From Cairo Airport, you can go to Giza, Heliopolis, Alexandria or even to the Pyramids.

How to Get From Cairo Airport to Cairo City Center or the other way round

The airport is located 21 kilometers from the historic center of the city. You can get to the capital of Egypt by:

  • bus. There are quite a lot of routes going to the city, but № 356 is the most convenient for foreigners. It is a modern bus equipped with air conditioning. It goes to Tahrir Square, which is located near the Egyptian Museum. Buses run every half hour from 07:00 to 23:00;
  • shuttle. They run every half an hour to the most popular districts of Cairo: Giza, Heliopolis, Nasr City, and others;
  • taxi. Cars are waiting for the clients near the terminal, or you can order a taxi from Cairo Airport to downtown by phone or via the Internet;
  • transfer, which you can book on the official site of the Kiwitaxi transfer company.

Attention: on the Egyptian metro map, there is a station near the airport, but it is only being built and will not be opened until October 2019.

Transfer vs. Taxi service from Cairo Airport (taken on the spot or ordered via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

You do not invest in traffic jams. And in Cairo, they are just endless. You will pay for the time wasted in a traffic jam, even if you agreed on the price with the taxi driver in advance. The cost of Kiwitaxi transfer remains fixed, no matter what.

You will not get an unexpected fellow traveler. At rush hours, a taxi driver can easily take another passenger into the car. All you can ask for is to divide the price equally. The Kiwitaxi transfer is strictly an individual trip, where you decide who you will go with.

You will not have to work as a navigator. Many taxi drivers come to Cairo for work and do not know the city well. It's best to show the destination on the map so that you are accurately understood, and drivers do not add some extra miles.

You will not deal with exotic surcharges. Taxi drivers in Cairo ask for an extra charge for the slightest service: turn on the music, open/close the windows, support the conversation. If the driver gave you something on the way: dates, chewing gum - any small thing, this also may not be free.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

It’s more expensive. The taxi from the airport to the city costs on average 4,5 dollars, and a transfer from Cairo Airport to a hotel in downtown - 21 dollars.

Transfer from Cairo Airport vs. Bus and Shuttle

Advantages of a private transfer

You will not have to learn Arabic numbers. Without this knowledge, you will simply not figure out how the local transportation works.

You will find your transport immediately since the Kiwitaxi driver takes you to the car. Bus stops in Cairo are very difficult to find because they are not marked in any way - you just need to know their location.

Kiwitaxi website displays only actual cost of services. The rates for the shuttle listed on the website and the prices that you will be given at the airport at the check-in counter may significantly differ not in your favor.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

It’s much more expensive. The bus fare is 0,34 dollars. A trip by the shuttle, depending on the area, will cost 1,5-6 dollars.
