Vienna Airport (VIE)-Vienna city (all areas)
Plane arrived around 11pm, it was wonderful to find our friendly driver at the gate, I am ashamed my German is so poor, his English was excellent. Our hotel was opposite the station, had a different name outside, the driver waited with us with no sense of impatience. For peace of mind, it was worth every penny, and having a welcoming friendly driver was perfect.

We would usually try to use public transport when we travel as part of the experience of visiting somewhere new. However, given the late arrival time and early departure of our flights it felt wiser to book a car. Absolutely no problem with Wien transfer, the drivers were friendly & helpful, and efficiently got us to our destination both ways safely on time.

How long does it take to get from Vienna Schwechat Airport (VIE) to the city center?

Typically it takes 15-25 minutes to get to Vienna city center from the airport by car, depending which part of the city you go to. The best hotels are found in the city center. Vienna is not famous of traffic jams, therefore using a taxi is a reasonable choice and obviously the most convenient one.


Public transport is also available, but of course it takes a long time. The train commutes between the city and the airport every 30 minutes. Once you finally arrive to Wien Mitte Terminal, you still need to catch a taxi to your hotel, or find a bus or tram stop nearby. Or walk… The CAT train needs 16 minutes to get from the Vienna Airport to Wien Mitte train station.

How much is a taxi from Vienna Schwechat Airport (VIE) to the city center?

Taxis in Wien are generally reliable. If you take a cab from the taxi rank in front of the airport, you may need to wait 5-10 minutes int he queue. The cost will be around 60-80 euro, depending on the taxi meter. It is important to mention that vans and minivans are hardly available at the Vienna Airport taxi rank. If you are more than 3 passengers with luggage, you will most likely travel in two or more taxis, paying 60-80 euro for each taxi. So what can you do? offers a fix 59 euro for the same taxi service (up to 4 passengers + luggage) and 77 euro for a minivan service (up to 8 passengers + luggage). Our price includes all costs, even credit card fees. Tips to your driver can be a nice gesture, if you enjoyed the service, but it is not obligatory.

Why choose instead of CAT?

The City Airport Train can be a great choice, if you travel alone, have plenty of time and don't have too many luggages. CAT leaves Vienna Schwechat Airport (VIE)every 30 minutes and it takes around 16 minutes to get to Wien Mitte train station which is in the city center. But can you imagine yourself with 2 big suitcases on the public transport?  If you check the CAT train compared to taxis at travel forums like Tripadvisor and VirtualTourist, it is generally not a recommended option. A single ticket costs 11 euro per person. If you're two, it is already 22 euro and you're three persons travelling together, it is already 33 euro. Honestly, not a big deal for a train, that commutes every 30 minutes, needs 16 minutes to take you to Wien Mitte station, from where you still need to walk 20-30 minutes to your hotel, if you’re lucky enough to have a hotel int he city center. Or take a taxi for further 10-20 euro. This way you can easily end up paying more than if you had booked an airport taxi or minibus straight to your hotel.


Our service is door to door, private,  and more cost effective. If you are three, the final price with CAT is 33 euro from the airport to the city center. You have to get somehow to your hotel, which means extra costs in this case. Our price is only 36 euro. This is the final price, no hidden costs, and we take you from A to B. You don't have to grab your luggages, you can travel in a comfortable, exclusive car from the airport to anywhere in the city in maximum 20-25 minutes.


With our drivers your travel will be an amazing experience. Just like a sightseeing tour, you can see all of the sights and famous buildings from your car. You can ask anything from the driver, as a local, he is going to tell you all the news and good places in town.
So, this is up to you now, whether you take the train and arrive to your hotel exhausted after you struggled with your luggage across the city for an hour, or you simply meet our driver at the airport, who will help you with your luggage and drive you straight to your hotel entrance.
