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.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Geneva Airport to the City Center (taken on the spot or ordered via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

Avoid scandals. The situation with taxi company Uber in Geneva is constantly changing. First, the Swiss government banned it, then allowed it, and then the taxi drivers unsatisfied with salaries began to strike. Nobody knows which outcomes the situation may have next time.

You will not accidentally go to France. If you get lost in the airport, you can accidentally go to the French sector, while the Geneva taxi will be waiting for you on the Swiss side. The driver of our transfer service will meet you at the arrival zone and lead you to the car.

Fixed price. Taxi prices rise by 20% at night, on weekends, and holidays. The transfer price remains unchanged after the prepayment.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Twice as expensive. Taxi from Geneva Airport to the city center usually costs 40 euros, while the transfer costs 80 euros.

Transfer from Geneva Airport vs. City Bus

Advantages of a private transfer

No changes. If you are using public transport, you still need to reach your hotel after you get to the right bus stop. This cannot be convenient if you are traveling with children and large luggage as we also provide minibuses and vehicles of a bigger capacity.

Travel at night. Public transport stops working at 00:00, while the transfer is available around the clock.

You will not mix tariff zones. You need to buy a ticket for public transport for the tariff zone 10 (Tout Genève). It is quite large, therefore, it costs as two usual zones. This confuses tourists. Fine for the "wrong" ticket is quite high - 85 euros.

You will not get confused with types of tickets. A regular ticket, valid for 60 minutes, costs 3 euros. An inexpensive ticket for 1.7 euros allows you to travel only for short distances (no more than 3 stops).

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive. A single ticket price for all public transport within Geneva costs 3 euros. The transfer costs 80 euros.
