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 Berlin Tegel Airport to Berlin center (ordered on the spot or via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

You know the price in advance, and it doesn’t change. In Berlin it is possible to order a taxi via Uber, myTaxi and Taxi Berlin, but customers often complain that the price announced before the trip doesn’t match up with the final one.

Order in the language you know. Whereas using myTaxi and Taxi Berlin, you will have to remember everything you know in German.

No extra fees. In Berlin taxi you can face surcharges for a trip alone and for credit card payments. In Kiwitaxi the price is for a car, not for a number of passengers. And payment by card is absolutely free of charge.

Travel to Schönefeld with a personal driver for the same money or less. A trip from one Berlin Airport to the other by local taxi will cost 65–80 euro. By transfer you will get there for 68 euro.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Almost twice as expensive. Standard tariffs are valid for all Berlin taxis, and Uber also works according to the meter. The cost of the trip from the airport to the center will make 21–28 euro. A transfer trip to the hotel will cost minimum 50 euro.

Transfer from Berlin Tegel Airport to Berlin city center vs. Bus

Advantages of a private transfer

No need to build a complex route. By shuttle or bus you can only get to the city center, and then you will have to study a complex transport map to find transport running to your hotel.

Twice as fast. A trip to the city center will take around one hour including waiting time and numerous stops. By transfer you will get directly to your hotel, and in only half an hour.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

More expensive, even if you travel in a group. One bus or shuttle ticket costs 2,8 euro. An economy transfer from Berlin Airport to your hotel will cost minimum 50 euro, and a minibus for 7 people - 62 euro.
