Why do tourists book private transfers from Munich Airport?

Why do people book transfers at Munich Airport (MUC)

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 from Munich 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.

How to get from Munich Airport to Munich city center or the other way round

The way to the city is not short. One can overcome 30 km distance by:

  • Lufthansa Shuttle Bus. There are bus stops at Т2, Т1 (gates A and D), as well as in Munich Airport Center (MAC). Tickets can be bought online, at the counter or from a driver (0,5 euro more expensive);
  • taxi, which can be taken on the spot or ordered via the app;
  • transfer, booked online, which can take you from Munich Airport both to the city and the neighbouring ski resorts.

It is possible to get to the central train station Hauptbahnhof by bus or city train at any time (except the time gap between 1am and 4am).

Transfer vs. Taxi from Munich Airport to the city center, ordered via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

Set off as soon as arrive. It is difficult to foresee how much time the taxi ordering at the airport counter might take: taxis are provided in order of priority. And other hundreds of passengers may also get the idea of ordering taxi via the app.

Pay for a trip, not for mileage or time of a day. Taxi service from the Munich Airport to the city will cost you approx. 57–75 euro, depending on the remoteness of your hotel. Transfer cost is fixed both to the center and for the suburb, and there is no surcharge for baggage or night time.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

More expensive. The price for a private transfer from Munich Airport to a hotel starts from 76 euro, whereas prices for local Uber start from 57 euro.

Transfer from Munich Airport vs. City train (S-bahn)

Advantages of a private transfer

Your carriage will not be uncoupled. Be careful, when you travel from the city to the air hub. Many tourist warn, that first carriage in trains running on S1 line often gets uncoupled and goes on another route.

You will have space for your baggage. In S-trains which run from the air hub to the city, a separate baggage compartment is not provided. You will have to travel with your bags on your knees for at least 50 minutes. In case of our service, nothing is out of place: suitcases are in trunk, and people — in a car.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Minimum 30 euro more expensive. The price for a train starts from 10,8 euro for one person (there are group and children discounts), whereas a our service for four passengers costs 76 euro.

Transfer from Munich Airport to the city center vs. Buses

Advantages of a private transfer

Do not ask for directions. Lufthansa Shuttle Bus goes to the Central train station of Munich. So, you will have to use a map or ask strangers to get from the train station to your hotel. Kiwitaxi driver will meet you at the airport and drive you to the hotel door.

Arrive first. Rushing to be the first to see all the city sights? While everybody is waiting for a bus, you will manage to cross more than a third of the way from the airport to Munich with our service.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive. An adult bus ticket will cost you 10,5 euro and a child one (6-14 y.o.) — 5,5 euro, our service will cost minimum 76 euro.
