Transfer vs. Taxi taken on the spot

Minimum 10 minutes faster due to the meeting at the airport
And in such locations as El Prat in Barcelona or Changi in Singapore, our service is 30 minutes faster, since, in order to get an official taxi cab from the airport to the city, you need to wait in line. The transfer is booked online in advance, so the driver is already there when you arrive.

No problems with language
For example, in Thailand, it is already a challenge to ask a local cab driver: «How much does a ride from the airport cost?». And if you start bargaining, you risk overpaying. By booking our service, you rid yourself of such stress.

The price is known in advance
Official services operate according to their own rates, and private cab drivers often set the price judging by the tourist’s appearance. In Italy, a price for a taxi to the train station may vary significantly, and an inter-city taxi price policy is even more unpredictable. With Kiwitaxi, you learn the price already when booking.

Payment in any favorable currency
In order to travel from the airport to the city by taxi cab, when arriving for example in Colombo or Bali, you will have to exchange money. The private transfer to the city is booked and paid online without any problems with currency.

On average 5–15% more expensive
It is especially palpable, if the destination is close to the airport, as our service to the hotel has the uniform tariff within city limits. However, due to the unified Kiwitaxi tariff, a trip may be even cheaper in such cities as Milan.

Booking and payment in advance
If there is no information about the date and time of your flight, it is not possible to book a car from the city to the airport. And, in order to make a booking online, you need to pay the service which has not been provided yet.

Professional driver
Our service is provided by professionals, who constantly work with tourists. It is not possible that the driver works part-time and does not know how to get from the airport to the train station.

Transfer vs. Public transport

Minimum 1,5–2,5 time faster
A private transfer to a city is a trip on the shortest route with stops only on demand of the passenger. If need be, it is possible to ask the driver to drive faster.

Calm and comfortable
A meeting at the airport as close to the arrivals area as possible, help with luggage, and a car of a suitable capacity are the service standard.

Payment in favorable currency
It is the same as above, where our service and a taxi from the airport to the city are compared. Payment is made online in advance, so there is no need to search for currency exchange offices upon arrival.

Up to 5 times more expensive for 1-2 tourists
For example, in Moscow, it is possible to get from a train station to an airport without changes, so if you travel alone or in a pair, a private car will cost minimum 2-4 times more expensive.

It’s clear. It’s better to choose a transfer.

Kiwitaxi service is where you can book a transfer to get from or to the airport, between two tourist destinations or other locations popular with tourists.

  • 98 countries
  • 463 airports
  • 13 car classes

The booking system enables booking a shared or private transfer at the price known in advance. It is possible to select or set parameters of a trip: pick-up and drop-off locations, arrival flight number, date and time of a transfer, car class and capacity, and child seats availability.

In a commentary, one can leave a custom request, e.g. if one needs to transport bulky baggage or animals or if an English-speaking driver is needed and etc. The more information you provide, the more suitable transfer we can find for you – if something in your request is unclear, we will get in touch with you to clarify.

It is very simple for a client. One just needs to visit the Kiwitaxi website, select a desirable route, choose one of 13 tariffs and car classes, and complete the transfer booking form. We find a suitable carrier for you, send you a voucher, control how the service is provided and ask you for the feedback.

How we work with drivers?

There are five basic principles. They enable more than 575 our partner companies to provide the same quality service in 98 countries and comply with all the obligations to the clients in 98% of cases.

Easy to join the system platform. 
Any dispatcher service or transportation company in any country may send a request on joining the online system of transfer booking as a partner carrier. It can be done on the special website page. Additionally, our partnership development department is constantly searching and inviting new companies to cooperation.

New companies are checked. 
We get in touch with our new partners in the transfer booking system. We request information and licenses required in the country of the carrier. We check if the car park condition meets these requirements: the cars of all transfer classes should be regularly maintained and no older than seven years.

Agreement on the service quality standard. 
Every partner company receiving orders via Kiwitaxi system signs the document, which obliges it to provide the service of tourist transportation with the set quality standard. This standard is defined by us.

No price competition on the website. 
Although different carriers in one region may set different prices on the route, we will show only one price on our website and sell our service according to it. The selling price is calculated with the statistical algorithm which enables us to predict the average margin. This approach does not let any new dishonest carrier company receive more orders through a low price.

Feedback-based rating. 
The main criterion affecting the number of orders which a particular partner company receives in the region is a positive feedback. If the driver provides an excellent service, it has relevant reviews and feedback and starts receiving more orders.

That is why it is beneficial for our partners to give clients a good service. As soon as the driver receives a bad review, the rating may drop and no more orders will be assigned.

On average, we have more than 10 carriers in the region, and the competition does its magic: the best partners keep improving.
