The driver was very polite and arrived on time. It helped that he confirmed my name and showed me the reservation details. The car was clean and the driver drove carefully (without being on his cell phone at all). I used kiwi twice and I would recommend it to visitors in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The driver was on time. The trip was fast and pleasant. The driver was very attentive and as it is ours first time to Montenegro, he was telling us interesting facts and showing places around. All together was an excellent trip!

Transfer from Bologna Airport vs. Bus

Advantages of a private transfer

You can leave the airport even in case of a strike. Residents and guests of Bologna often face strikes - it is a common way of settling labor disputes in Italy.
