Bilbao Airport Transfers
Bilbao is a city divided into two parts by the Nervion River. On the left-hand side of the river, you will find the industrial area with large factories manufacturing a wide variety of products, from aeronautical and railway equipment to tools and tyres. On the right side of the river are the commercial area and the historic centre. The city's two parts are linked by a total of nine bridges that span the river Nervion. Bilbao lies in a valley and is therefore affectionately known by the locals as botxo, meaning hole.
A lot of travellers arriving in Bilbao choose to take a taxi for their onward journey. But rather than queuing at the taxi rank, you might be better off with a pre-booked transfer, which has numerous advantages.
Why pre-book your Bilbao airport transfer?
To save time
Queuing at the airport's taxi rank can be time-consuming and is the last thing you want to do when you have just arrived in Bilbao! With a pre-booked transfer, your driver will already be waiting for you on your arrival at the airport, ready to take you straight to your holiday destination. And while some of your fellow passengers will still be waiting in a taxi queue, you will already be on your way to your accommodation.
To get the right-sized vehicle
A standard airport taxi is not permitted to carry more than 4 passengers - this includes babies and young children. Depending on the size of your family or group, you may therefore have to take more than one taxi, which can get very costly. When pre-booking a transfer, you have the option of selecting a larger vehicle. This will allow all of you to travel together and you won't have to pay twice!
To get good value for money
You may be surprised to hear that a pre-booked transfer does not cost you any more than a standard taxi from Bilbao Airport taxi rank. And, what's even better, with a pre-arranged transfer you tend to get a more comfortable and superior car.
To travel safely with your children
Standard airport taxis don't tend to carry a child or baby seat. With a pre-arranged transfer you have to option of selecting an appropriate seat for your children when you book, so you can be sure that your little ones will be travelling safely - just like they do at home.
