Kiev Airport Shuttle. Local taxi service and rates.

You’ve landed at International airport Borispol Kiev (KBP). So welcome to Kiev, the Ukrainian land! Passport control is passed, luggage picked up, and now the question is where is taxi!

Using taxi is not limited with Airport Pick up service only. Most likely you will also need taxi during your stay in Ukraine. Cyrillic makes things more complicated for foreigners and you may want to avoid them using English speaking taxi company. So take into consideration few more tips as for ordering and using taxi in Kiev. It’s all the same across the world: foreign tourists are double priced. But! Sometimes tariff can be higher by 4-5 times. So if you don’t want to be overcharged when you catch the taxi on the street, check up on internet the average rates in the city. Being informed will help you to discuss the price with taxi drivers.

Let’s overview possible options one by one.

1) If you didn’t have enough time or desire for planning you may want to follow the easiest way: Taking a cab at the airport taxi desk. As known it is the most expensive but the easiest option.

2) Airport Pick Up. If you’ve ordered airport transfer in advance, your driver will be waiting for you in the airport meeting hall, holding a nameplate. The rate may really vary depending on the company you’ve chosen. Some hotels and apartments owners may offer you free airport transfer if you meet certain requirements while ordering accommodation. Or they would provide this service as additionally payed.

3) Taxi companies. There are plenty in Kiev, but most of them provide service in Russian only. That’s why companies which provide you with English Speaking operators and drivers are reasonably more expensive.

4) Though it doesn’t work for the independent taxi drivers standing here and there in the airport territory. These friendly guys will charge you the highest price. It’s unpredictable everywhere. Although if you are in a hurry or like adventures, you may try it.

5) Booking apartment or ordering interpreter, or city tour may also give you discount for airport shuttle provided by the same company.

As of July 2011 average tariffs for Airport transfers in Kiev are 35-50$. The taxi for locals across Kiev Downtown is 3.75$ USD (25-30 UAH ukrainian hryvna). It applies when you are ordering taxi by phone (always cheaper) and operator announces your tariff after you mention destination you are going from and to.

Happy travelling!
