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.

Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Moscow Domodedovo Airport

At Domodedovo Airport there is only one terminal, but it receives almost the half of Moscow tourists annually. It is 45 km away from the city center and more than 70 km away from the northern districts. However, it is possible to quickly get from Domodedovo Airport and back, due to the well-developed transport system.

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

Not only the locals fly from Domodedovo Airport, but also many other Russians, arriving to the capital from other regions. There are many passengers but the transport choice is wide as well. It is possible to get to the air terminal by:

buses and fixed-route taxis (№ 404, 308), which depart from Domodedovo and arrive at the bus station near Domodedovskaya metro station; Aeroexpress, which departs every 30 minutes from Domodedovo to Paveletskaya railway station; commuter trains, following to Moscow Airport with several stops.

Transfer from Moscow Domodedovo Airport vs. Taxi booked via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

No need to look for a car. If you book a taxi via the app, you will have to look for the car at the parking lot yourself, using such guidelines as “yellow box” or “third barrier”. Kiwitaxi driver will meet you at the terminal and walk you to the car.

The car is waiting for you, not vice versa. If you have already claimed your baggage and called taxi service, the car will arrive at least in 10 minutes. If several flights landed at the same time, all the taxis might be taken, prolonging the waiting time.

Our driver is a professional. More than 40% taxi drivers in Moscow are illegal immigrants without a due driving experience. Kiwitaxi employs only licensed drivers with high driving skills.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Twice as expensive, than taxi booked via the app. Uber price for taxi from Moscow Airport to city center makes 12 euro, whereas the transfer price — 24 euro. But it applies only to economy class. If you are travelling with children or you want to book comfort-class car, the price will be the same.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Domodedovo Airport to Moscow, booked on site

Advantages of a private transfer

You will not sponsor criminals. Taxi in Domodedovo Airport is managed by real mafia. Moslenta’s investigation showed that criminals control the drivers’ access to the airport and provide them with fake licenses. This is how the Domodedovo permit card of the most local taxi drivers looks like. It doesn’t look like a real document, does it?

Do not overpay. Taking advantage of the fact, that tourists from the regions are not familiar with Moscow prices, taxi drivers wind up their rates twice or three times (especially for english-speaking foreigners). Final cheque may reach 70 euros. Transfer price is fixed and is considerably lower.

Travel safely. The Ministry of Transport annually fines freelance taxi drivers at Moscow Airport for violating rules of passenger transport safety. There are no such problems with transfers.

Transfer from Moscow Domodedovo Airport vs. Aeroexpress and Commuter Trains

Advantages of a private transfer

Get where you need without stops. Aeroexpress and commuter trains follow to Paveletskaya railway station, from which you will have to get to your destination carrying your baggage.

Leave airport even at night. On the contrary, Aeroexpress from Domodedovo operates only till 00:30. Last commuter train departs even earlier - at 23:09.

Disadvantages of a private transfer

Three times as expensive for a single traveller. Aeroexpress ticket costs 7 euro. If you are travelling in a group of three, there is almost no price difference with transfer. But the commuter trains are considerably cheaper, from 1,9 euro.

You can get stuck in a traffic jam, but not with Aeroexpress or commuter train.

Transfer from Moscow Domodedovo Airport vs. Buses and Fixed-route Taxis

Advantages of a private transfer

Avoid crowds. Buses and fixed-route taxis from Domodedovo Airport are cheap and popular. They are almost always full, and your luggage will fit only in the aisle.

Faster. To travel by bus, you first need to get to the stop and wait for the bus. Kiwitaxi driver will meet you in front of your house and take you to the airport at most in 1,5 hours.

Get to the other airport directly. For example, to get from Domodedovo to Sheremetyevo by bus, you will have to drive to Moscow first and make several changes. Our transfer will bring your from one airport to another via Moscow Ring Road.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

10 times more expensive. Ticket price of microbus from the airport starts from 1,7 euro. Our airport transfers from Moscow Domodedovo are more expensive.
