Why do tourists book private transfers in Berlin?

Why do people book transfers in Berlin

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 in Berlin 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.

Our article tells how to get to Berlin or travel from its city center to the airport.

Berlin Airports

There are two airports in Berlin: Tegel and Schönefeld. The first is located 8 km away from the city, and the second — 18 km. Both air hubs receive both domestic and international flights. Schönefeld Airport mostly accommodates low-cost companies.

How to get from Berlin city center to Berlin airports, train station or to the neighbouring cities

Transport connection in Berlin is well-developed. You have several options to choose from:

  • buses. On buses № 109 and 128, it is possible to get to Tegel Airport. And, there are around 8 bus routes running from different parts of the city to Schönefeld Airport;
  • shuttle buses. Shuttle buses X9 and TXL set off every 10–15 minutes from the train stations of Alexanderplatz and Zoologischer Garten to Tegel;
  • S-Bahn trains (S9, S45) and Airport Express (RE7 and RB14) trains. They run to Schönefeld Airport;

  • transfer. The booking should be made in advance online.

Apart from buses, trains depart from the central train station to neighbouring cities.

Transfer in Berlin vs. Taxi booked by phone or via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

No extra fees. All taxi services in Berlin (including Uber) operate according to one official rate. There are also surcharges, for example, for travelling alone or paying by bank card. Kiwitaxi does not charge you for booking by card, and states the price for a car rather than for a number of passengers.

The same price for a trip to Schönefeld. The taxi costs 60 euro, and the transfer— 62 euro. But our driver will arrive on time, help you with luggage, drive carefully, and there will definitely be an air-conditioner in a car. If need be, you can choose a car of a bigger capacity: a minivan or even a minibus.

A trip from one airport to the other at the same price or less. A trip with local taxi cab between Berlin airports will cost 65–80 euro. With Kiwitaxi, you can get there for 68 euro.

Cheaper to Potsdam, because the taxi costs 80 euro, and the transfer — 74 euro.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Twice as expensive to get to Tegel. Thus, a trip from the city center to Tegel will cost 21–28 euro. The transfer fare starts from 50 euro.

Transfer in Berlin vs. Bus, Shuttle bus, and Train

Advantages of a private transfer

Travel at night. Buses, shuttle buses, and trains do not run after midnight. The exception is night buses N7 and N60 to Schönefeld. The transfer service is at your disposal 24h.

No need to plan a complex route. In order to get from the hotel to the airport, you will have to make at least one change. If you plan a trip to another city, there will be more changes. With Kiwitaxi, everything is easy: you just need to specify your pick-up and drop-off locations. The rest is our concern. In case of any problems, our English-speaking customer support team with be always in touch.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive even for a group. A trip by bus and shuttle bus costs 2,8 euro, and by train — 3,2 euro.
