How to Get from Stockholm Arlanda Airport to Stockholm City Center and Other Destinations
Stockholm Arlanda Airport is the largest air hub in Sweden and one of the biggest ones in the whole Scandinavia. You can get from it to the capital of Sweden and other cities by bus, train, taxi, or transfer.
Taxi from Stockholm Arlanda Airport
Getting by taxi from Arlanda to Stockholm will take you 40─60 minutes. The trip cost is 30─50 euros. The price depends on the number of passengers and baggage units, as well as the distance. If you take one car for 5─8 people, you will have to pay up to 50% extra.
You can take a car right at the airport, as ranks can be found near the exits from all Arlanda terminals. You can book a car in the usual way - by making a phone call. Arlanda Airport offers free Wi-Fi.
The major drawback of taxis in Sweden is that they don’t have fixed prices. You will find out the final trip cost only after you reach your destination. Official taxi companies will provide you with a receipt. Private drivers and fraud ones won’t do that.
Taxi companies offer different prices for travel to Stockholm city center, Bromma and Skavsta Airports, Solna, Taby, and other locations. If you don’t want to waste your time searching for the most favorable rate, book a transfer – all our prices are fixed, and you will learn them in advance.

At the exit from the terminal, you will meet our professional driver holding a sign with your name on it. He/she will help you carefully put your bags in the trunk and get into the car.
You can book a transfer online, right on the Kiwitaxi website. You choose the desired car class, add child seats, and other extra options yourself. Specify the time your flight arrives, and the Kiwitaxi driver will come for you in advance. One of the advantages of this travel option is that in case your flight is delayed, the driver will be waiting for you. Taxi drivers won’t do that.
