What You Can Expect

Venice Marco Polo Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Venice Airport Private Arrival Transfer

Choose from two different options with this one-water private taxi service from Venice’s Marco Polo Airport to you hotel. With meet and greet service, a representative will greet you at the airport arrival terminal and escort you to the pier, where you’ll board a private motorboat. With the full-service option, a representative will stay with you from the arrival terminal all the way to the door of your hotel. 

Once you hop aboard your comfortable motorboat, relax and enjoy the spectacular ride. As not all Venice hotels have a private water taxi stop, the driver will let you off at the closest available stop. 

Motorboats can accommodate up to six people and six pieces of luggage. Transfer service is available 24 hour a day, 7 days a week. Please provide flight and hotel details when making your booking. You’ll receive immediate confirmation and a voucher to present to the transfer representative. Please call the number on your voucher between 24 and 48 hours prior to your arrival to confirm your transfer.

Price is per person, based on six adults per motorboat.

Please note: Guests staying at Venice’s Hotel Marriott (Isola delle Rose) will need to pay a surcharge of €20 at the time of service due to the hotel’s more distant location. This transfer service is not available to Mestre hotels.

We were met at Venice Airport as expected and our guide took us to a waiting private water taxi. She was very friendly and helpful. She guided us from the water taxi to our hotel. This is the best and easiest way to go to get from Venice's airport to your hotel in historic Venice.

We were met promptly after our arrival at Venice airport and escorted to our water taxi. The private trip directly to our hotel was enjoyable, and a timesaver. Both our escort and driver were very helpful and polite.

Absolutely the best way to get from the airport to our hotel. We were met outside of baggage claim, just as advertised. The tour escort stayed with us through our boarding the water taxi. The sights and experience of entering Venice via water cannot be beaten !

Wow what a great way to arrive in Venice, from the moment we arrived we were greeted by a rep and taken to the water taxi. We couldn't have asked for a better start to the holiday!

Do this, pamper yourself and spend the money! Getting off a long plane ride from the states dead tired it was great to see a sign with our name on it when leaving baggage claim. They pamper you from then on, never had to touch our luggage again until we were in our hotel room! The private tour spends time winding through the canals of VENCIE ON THE WAY TO YOUR HOTEL AND OUR GUIDE SPOKE EXCELLENT ENGLISH. She talked us through a bit of venican history and helped us plan our free time in Venice. Spend the money, do this for yourself!

We booked this escorted private transfer because we were arriving in the evening and didn't want to waste time sorting out a boat or relish finding our hotel in the dark. I thought, intially, that it was expensive, but it was worth every penny. It took all the grief out of arranging transport from the airport, and we'd never have found our hotel in the time it took our escort, Sara, to get us there. We didn't book a return trip as we didn't need it with the whole day to spare - we took a leisurely ride back on the vaporetto - but would recommend the private, escorted service on arrival to anyone, and would definitely use it again.
