Customer feedback

The service was great. Our driver was on time, friendly, and made sure that we were at the correct pier before he left, since it was a lesser used pier. All in all excellent! Thank you.
The service provided was excellent. The driver was waiting for us in the arrivals department, and even though we were 30 minutes late, he was very kind, gentle and helpful. We arrived at our destination without any problems. We are very happy with his services. Totally recommended.
Thank you very much. The driver was early at our pick up point, extremely helpful throughout the journey and a very good driver. We had a comfort stop about half way and had a chance to buy drinks. Our vehicle was spacious and comfortable for the 4 hour journey. Our friends will make a booking for their return trip to Saigon on Monday.
Easy to book and pay. Driver was waiting for us and was extremely friendly and welcoming. Lovely vehicle and smooth trip (child booster seats were ready as requested). Would def use again.
Driver was on time with an easily readable sign, easy to spot. Car was clean, driver nice and brought me directly and quickly to the hotel.
Everything was good/perfect. On time, good sign with my name on it, good car in my case a BMW 730. I will recomment KIWITAXI everyone!!!
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.

Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Sharm El Sheikh Airport

Sharm El Sheikh International Airport is the largest air hub in the Sinai Peninsula. It serves more than 50 planes a day. The airport has two terminals: Terminal № 1 receives mostly international flights, and Terminal № 2 receives the rest of flights. Just in 20–25 minutes, you can get from it to the center of Sharm El Sheikh and the resorts of Naama Bay, Nabq Bay, and Sharks Bay.

How to get from Sharm El Sheikh Airport to the city center and the other way round

It is about 18 km between the air hub and Sharm El Sheikh city center. There are just a few transport options you may choose from:

  • share taxis. They run to the center of Sharm El Sheikh, as well as to the nearest resorts: Dahab, Nuweiba, and Taba. There is no exact timetable, and stops are made only on request. The bus stop can be found at the exit from Terminal № 1, and tickets can be bought from the driver;
  • taxis which can be taken on the spot. You won’t be able to use a taxi aggregator like Uber in Sharm El Sheikh;
  • transfers. They need to be booked online in advance.

Getting to hotels is more comfortable by taxi or transfer — both at night and at daytime.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Sharm El Sheikh Airport taken on the spot

Advantages of a private transfer

You can choose the most suitable vehicle for you. As a rule, at the airport or on the streets of Sharm El Sheikh, one can find only standard cars like Hyundai Accent. On the Kiwitaxi website, you can book a car of any class and capacity, as well as order a child seat in case you’re traveling with a child.

Calm and safe travel. Unlike taxi drivers, Kiwitaxi drivers take responsibility for your trip and always respect the traffic rules.

Attentive service. A street taxi driver may not be allowed to drive close to your hotel, and he/she will not ask you if the loud music bothers you or not or whether you mind him/her smoking. A polite Kiwitaxi driver will meet you with a name sign, help you with your baggage, and take you directly to your hotel door. You may also ask him/her to turn the music on or off if you want to travel in silence.

Disadvantages of a private transfer

Much more expensive. The fare for a taxi from the airport to Sharm El Sheikh will be around 60 Egyptian pounds (3.4 dollars), while a transfer will cost from 27 dollars.

Transfer from Sharm El Sheikh Airport vs. Share taxis

Advantages of a private transfer

A car will be waiting for you at a specified time. Share taxis don’t have exact timetables, so you may spend a lot of time waiting for them or fail to leave the air hub at all.

You will not miss your stop. Share taxis in Sharm El Sheikh stop only on request, so you risk missing your stop if you announce it not loudly enough.

No other passengers and their baggage. Because of low fares, share taxis are often used by laborers, gardeners, cleaners, and other hotel staff. Thus, you can easily travel next to a cart coated with cement.

You can leave the airport at night. There is no guarantee that you will find a share taxi after midnight. Transfers are available 24/7.

Disadvantages of a private transfer

Several times more expensive even for a group. One ticket for a share taxi will cost you 1–6 Egyptian pounds (0.06–0.3 dollars). However, it is better to specify the fare before the trip. A transfer from the airport to your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh for 4 passengers will cost 27 dollars.
