Why do tourists book private transfers from Moscow?

Why do people book transfers from Moscow

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 Moscow 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.

Everything was very good. The driver arrived at the hotel at the scheduled time. He was friendly, helped us with our luggage and drove in an exemplary manner. The booking was easy and we got informations via e-mail regularly.
Trip was without any problems, driver was on time waiting for us. Time of our journey was much more shorter than expected, it took only 45 minutes, but it was national holiday day.

Moscow is the capital and the most populous city in Russia. Around 17,5 million tourists visit the economic center of the country annually.

Moscow Airports

In Moscow and Moscow region, there are three the biggest international airports of Russia: Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo, and Vnukovo. The distance from the city center to the airports makes 30, 45 and 38 kilometers respectively, which is around 1,5-hour ride by car.

How to get from Moscow to an airport, train station or to the neighboring cities

The transportation system is well-developed in Moscow. There are several options to travel around:

  • buses and share taxis. To Sheremetyevo, they depart from the stops near Rechnoy Vokzal, Planernaya, and Leninsky Avenue stations; to Vnukovo — from Yugo-Zapadnaya and Salaryevo stations. One can take a bus going to Domodedovo at the stop near the same name metro station. It is also possible to travel to Tula, Suzdal, Tver, Sergiyev Posad, Ryazan, and other nearest towns from Moscow bus stations;
  • electric and express trains. Express trains run to the airports from Belorusskiy, Paveletskaya, and Kievskiy train stations. By electric trains, one can get, for example, to Tver, Vladimir, Dmitrov or Kaluga;
  • taxi. It can be ordered by phone or via the app;
  • transfer service in Moscow. It should be booked online in advance.

It is convenient to travel by metro in order to get to the main train stations: Leninsky, Kurskaya, Kazanskaya, Paveletskaya, and Belorusskiy.

If you have an excursion during the day, plan in advance, how to get back in Moscow in the evening.

Transfers vs. Taxi in Moscow ordered by phone or via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

Fixed price. Many taxi services in Moscow still work according to a taximeter. This means, that an unexpected traffic jam on your way may result in an extra payment. The transfer fare is known in advance and will not change - it will remain as it was when booking. And no traffic jams will affect it.

Choose a suitable vehicle. For groups up to 4 people, it is convenient to travel within Moscow in a taxi cab. Traveling in a group? With Kiwitaxi, it is possible to order a spacious minivan or even a minibus.

Travel to Sergiyev Posad at the same price but much more comfortably. A taxi trip from Moscow will cost around 2 200–2 800 rubles (31-39,50 euro). A transfer can be booked for 2 530 rubles (35 euro) and the driver will meet you at the right time with a clean car, help you with luggage and drive you at a fixed cost.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

A little more expensive. Uber, Gett, and Yandex.Taxi companies charge around 900–1 300 rubles (12,50-18,50 euro) for a trip from the city center to the airport, to Tver - around 3 500 rubles (49 euro). An individual transfer on these routes costs 1 630 and 4 370 rubles (23 and 61 euro).

Transfer in Moscow vs. Electric and express train

Advantages of a private transfer

No need to plan a route: look for the right bus and stop and plan changes. Kiwitaxi driver will meet you at the place convenient for you and get you to your destination without extra fuss.

You can travel to the airports at night, whereas express trains stop running at 00:30.

Cheaper for 4 people. One express train ticket to the airport costs 500 rubles (7 euro) or 420 rubles (6 euro), when bought on the website. When calculated for four people, it is already 500 rubles (7 euro) more expensive. Not taking into account the way to a train station.

Disadvantages of a private transfer

A car can get into a traffic jam, unlike electric and express trains.

More expensive than electric train to the nearest towns. One electric train ticket to Sergiyev Posad can be bought for 176 rubles (2,5 euro), to Tver — for 387 rubles (5,4 euro), to Kaluga— for 430 rubles (6 euro).
