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

Advantage of a private transfer

Your ride will not be cancelled. Taxi app can fail at the worst possible time: when you need to learn the car details, pay the service or anything else.

Much more expensive. Transfer to Vnukovo or from the airport to the Central District of Moscow costs 19 euro. Uber, Gett and Yandex.Taxi — from 11 to 18 euro.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Moscow Vnukovo Airport, taken on the spot

Advantages of a private transfer

The fare does not depend on the traffic. Permanent Moscow traffic jams are a common thing. In case of Vnukovo, the situation is complicated by the fact that the second building of the airport services special flights of the government — the road can simply be blocked. Eventually, while you are giving the way to the motorcade, the sum for the trip is increasing. And the transfer trip price is always fixed.

Almost 9 euro cheaper. Official Moscow airport taxi service Trans-free shows the price from 28 euro for a trip to the city center. Transfer to Vnukovo (or from the airport to Central district of Moscow) costs from 19 euro.

Transfer from Moscow Airport to the city vs. Buses and Share Taxi

Advantages of a private transfer

Get to your destination without changes. By bus or share taxi you can get from the airport only to stations Yugo-Zapadnaya or Salaryevo. Then you have to change to metro or public transportation system to get to your destination.

Minimum half an hour faster. Waiting time for a bus or share taxi is 10–15 minutes, the way to the nearest metro stations takes 35–40 minutes. In order to get from there to Moscow center, you will have to travel on the subway minimum 7 stops. You will spend around 30 minutes more on your trip including waiting time. It means, that the way from the airport to the city center will take 1,5 hour. A transfer trip from Moscow Airport to your hotel will take you 50 minutes.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive. One bus trip with a change to metro (one ninety-minute trip) — 0,80 euro. The same route covered by a shared taxi will cost 2,80 euro (2,10 euro for a shared taxi, 0,70 euro for metro).

Transfer from Moscow Vnukovo Airport vs. Aeroexpress

Advantages of a private transfer

Get to the city even at night. Like all public transport in Vnukovo, aeroexpress does not run at night.

Do not waste time waiting. Aeroexpress departs to the city once an hour (sometimes twice in rush-hour) and, if you are late by the time a train departs, you will have to wait for the next one.

Cheaper, when travelling in a group of four. One aeroexpress ticket costs 7 euro (online in advance — 6 euro). An economy class transfer for four people can be ordered for 25 euro, the one of a comfort class— for 29 euro.

Disadvantages of a private transfer

More expensive, when travelling alone or in pair. Two aeroexpress tickets costs 14 euro (12 euro when buying on the site).

You can hit the traffic, unlike aeroexpress.
