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.

This was just what we needed as our flight arrived about 10pm! We were met in the arrivals hall and guided right to our private water taxi for the 20 minute cruise to our hotel. The staff helped with our luggage and we were treated like royalty! Thanks for offering this service!

Perfect way to arrive in Venice!

We were met exactly as described and escorted to our beautiful private boat - George Clooney requests this boat when he flies in -

Our wonderful guide took us all the way to our hotel and explained what we were seeing as it passed by.

It makes you feel like royalty to be whisked away while the others stand around trying to make reservations for a taxi or squishing all together to get onto the water bus.

My friends didn't know I was arranging this and were delighted to be treated to this experience - the only way to travel!

Looked after from point of contact to arrival at our destination dock

This was a perfect way to arrive in Venice. As we walked out of customs, there was a lady holding a sign with our name on it very clear to see/read. We never had to wander around and wonder where to go. She offered to get porters to take our luggage to the dock so we didn't have to drag them along it was included in the price we paid. We walked approximately 10 minutes with her to the dock and our luggage was there waiting for us. We got into the boat and we were off! The driver took us through the Grand Canal and we thoroughly enjoyed the views. We arrived at the dock of our hotel and a bellman was waiting for us to get the luggage. It was a PERFECT and stress free way to arrive in Venice. I would definitely recommend this transfer!

We were met as expected by our lovely guide who took us to our waiting taxi. As first time to Venice it was a once in a lifetime way to arrive and we were delivered direct to the door of our hotel.
Our guide gave us lots of information en route and took us into the hotel to make sure we were OK. Apologies to her as I cannot remember her name.

Pricey, but worth it. My grandchildren loved this arrival method. It may have been the most enjoyable part of their visit to Venice.

For a first time visitor - and we were two women traveling alone - this was well worth the money. We had no idea where we were going and Venice isn't that easy to follow on a map. Now that I have a better feel for the boat docks and location of things, I could probably get there on a public ferry. However that first time, I would have been lost and our boat took us directly to our hotel.

Great Transfer, A lady was waiting for us with a name card at the luggage area. However, it is a long walk 5-10 minutes from the airport terminal to the boat launch. With all the canals in Venice you would think they would have had a dock area a little closer to the baggage area especially with the rough sidewalks you have to roll your luggage on.
