Transfers from Alicante Airport vs. Taxi, taken on the spot or ordered via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

You can order it in your native language. The majority of local taxi drivers speak only Spanish. Even if a taxi driver speaks English, his/her pronunciation is indistinct or he/she is not willing to speak a foreign language at all. In case of transfer, Kiwitaxi booking form is available in several languages in addition to English. Besides, a 24-hour English-speaking support will answer any questions concerning your booking.

You will not lose time and money. Experienced taxi drivers in Spain often use the following trick to charge extra money from a tourist: while you are trying to explain your route or destination in your average Spanish (if any), a driver will be asking you again and again in return, pretending he/she does not understand you. In the meanwhile, the meter will be on and you will have lost several extra euros by the moment he gets you.

You are always sure about the prices. Even accredited taxi drivers have a way to discreetly increase the final sum for the trip: they turn the meter on at a higher rate and give a receipt like nothing’s wrong.

Disadvantages of a private transfer

Minimum 16 euro more expensive. Any taxi from Alicante Airport to the downtown will cost 19–25 euro. The transfer price on the same route starts from 41 euro.

It is cheaper only when travelling to Benidorm. A taxi trip cost to Benidorm will make 70–87 euro depending on time of day and distance to your hotel. A price on private transfer from Alicante Airport is fixed — 70 euro.
