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 Nice Cote d'Azur Airport 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 Nice Airport to Nice city center (ordered via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

You will not face transport problems upon arrival. In order to call a taxi via the app, you need at least to get Wi-Fi connection, enter your hotel address and choose a car. By booking a transfer from Nice Airport in advance you leave all the concerns behind you and just enjoy your holiday.

Always on time. A transfer driver knows your flight number and tracks the landing status online — that’s why he/she will definitely arrive on time. Taxi from the app can easily promise you to send a car within 10 minutes, but can then postpone it, as easily.

Transfer from Nice Airport to Nice vs. Taxi taken on the spot

Advantages of a private transfer

Price is the same despite the traffic. The traffic in Nice can strike you at any time and in any place. Especially, if someone from the locals suddenly decided to transport his/her motorboat. In case of taxi, idle time will affect the trip price, whereas the transfer price is always fixed.

English-speaking support. French taxi drivers love their language and refuse to understand any other. This results in extra expenses and stress: in order to increase the costs a driver may take you to a wrong place, pretending that you have told him the address incorrectly. In Kiwitaxi you can always book a car with an English-speaking driver and ask our support any questions.
