Private transfer | or by Taxi
KiwiTaxi transfer is a transportation service that is somewhat more expensive than a taxi. The advantages of a private transfer are - no problems with language, price is known in advance, driver will be waiting for you in the right place at the right time, holding a sign with your name.

You can order a transfer with any service level - e.g. transfer for the family with children, economy minivan for a tourist group or a luxury transfer. The transfer cost is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises - either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.
