Transfers (Shuttle)

Took a transfer which is what they call shuttles. It was actually a Dodge Caravan driven by a person in civilian clothes. But it is a legitimate business. The transfer drove to the suburbs to pick up a couple of older women. It was about an hour and a half the total trip to get to Katowice International Airport. The cost was 65zl per person. Our flight was early the next day so we took the last shuttle at 5pm and stayed at an airport hotel. We were told if we took a taxi it would cost about 200zl. We left a 15zl tip but because he didn't have change (we read it's not customary to tip).

Bobs Taxi in Krakow

Just got back from Krakow and used Bobs taxi service for five of us. Speedy, efficient service and very reasonably priced. Just email or phone him- he couldn't be more helpful. Extremely knowledgeable about history, great sense of humour and absolutely dependable. My Dad said he really made his holiday. Don't hesitate just book with Bob it's so worth it. He plays some great tunes for you too.

Bob's Taxi - Taxi and tours

Bob Taxi -
First class service and loads of local knowledge from start to finish. We arranged an airport pick-up and tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau with Bob's Taxi by email before going to Krakow. He was quick to reply and offered great prices. His driver,was waiting for us at the airport with a name sign and Bob was at the hotel on Thursday morning bang on time. On the way to Auschwitz he showed us a DVD about Auschwitz (quite depressing but informative) and also made a pit-stop so we could use a toilet and get refreshments (you may need tissues for Auschwitz). He arranged everything once there waited for us (2 1/2 hours) and then took us for the second part of the tour at Birkenau. He is a very knowledgable guy with lots of extra info about the area and history. We were that impressed with Bob's service we arranged our transfer back to the airport on Saturday. Again he was punctual and got us there safely. We will definitely use Bob when next in the brilliant and beautiful city of Krakow. A very professional, funny and friendly person.

Tour with Krakowdiscovery

I have just arrived back from Krakow and had a wonderful time in this great city. We booked our trips online before we went and cannot fault the service. Our driver on our trip to Auschwitz and Salt Mines was Slawek who was ready and waiting for us in our hotel right on time. He took us to both places. Great tour, super friendly guide look no further than these company for trips from Krakow!

1° Transfer from airport.
Already in 2010 I had used City Taxi as recommended by the organizers of the VT meet and ordered by internet the transfers Airport - Hotel in Krakow centre and vice versa.
A week before this new trip to Krakow I asked price for the transfers as well as a visit by taxi to Auschwitz and Birkenau and gave my instructions for days and times.
E-mail to the manager of City Taxi who understands English:

The transfer from Airport to our hotel in the centre was quoted at 75 Pln on a Sunday.
Return from hotel to airport on a week day was at 65 Pln. The driver was each time perfectly on time.
The trip from airport Balice, at 20 Km, takes about 30 minutes depending upon traffic. Paying about 17 - 19 € is not expensive comparing with prices in Western Europe.

2° Taxis in Krakow.
We went from Krakow centre to Kazimierz (plac Wolnica) and back. We paid 15 and 17 Pln.

3° Taxi from Krakow to Birkenau and Auschwitz.
We booked a trip with City Taxi starting at 12.15 h from our hotel to visit first KL Birkenau and after 15 h KL Auschwitz I for an individual visit. We got back at our hotel at 18.30 h.
The price for this 140 Km drive plus waiting, a total time of 6 hours, was 380 PLN = about 100 €.

Taxicabs are plentiful and relatively cheap in Krakow – within the city boundaries the fare should not exceed 20$/Euro. And you can dial roughly twenty different taxi telephone centers, each with its own fleet, but do not expect an English speaker on the other end - ask sb to help you call a taxi (younger people usually know English :-); though a cab will arrive in few minutes to your address if you manage to give one. Note, however, telephoning for a cab will save you (about) 20% on the fare.
Rather than cruising streets Krakow taxies wait in long lines for cargo to find them at numerous taxi stands scattered throughout city. The closest to the Main Market Square are located at:
- Plac (Square) Szczepanski (walk Szczepanska Street westwards from NW corner and look to right entering the square),
- Plac (Square) Dominikanski (walk Grodzka Street from SE corner and look to left entering the square with trams)
You may hail taxi if it happens to pass by you as well.

From the airport to the city - TAXI

You can take a taxi from a taxi stand in front of Passenger Terminal. It's much more expensive and only a little faster then a bus but much more comfortable (especially with your luggage) and you can go directly to your hotel or wherever you wish.
PRICE: about 70 PLN in weekdays, 100 PLN at holidays and at night (10.00 pm - 6.00 am) by official carrier airport services - Radio Taxi 919.

You can call a taxi as well and ask for your price:
tel. 919, 96-21, 96-23 to 96-29, 96-61 to 96-67 etc.

Notice: ladies you call to sometimes can't speak English hahaha :-).

Krakow Executive

We arrived Krakow with friends last weekend and were adviced to use Krakow Executive. We were a bit worried as it's a fresh company but it Was great!
Tom, our driver was waiting in the arrivals. The journey to the hotel was quick as we managed to avoid most of the traffic. He arranged Auschwitz tour for us thee next day which was also really good. Both journeys as well as the transfer back to the airport went with a mercedes viano (very comfortable), we even had a few bottles of mineral water on our tour at no extra costs. He said the company's just started so their www is still under construction and the best way to contact them is to call or text them at 0048 880802702.
There were 4 of us, the airport transfer was 80, and the auschwitz tour: 420 zloties for the whole group. Definately well spent money as there's absolutely no hassle, and we'll surely book them again for our next visit in January.

There are many taxi's at Kraków, so prices are comprtative. Be sure to enter a taxi with the tarifs displayed.

Calling a cab by phone secures you from of a trusted cab within 5 to 10 minutes, often with a reduced price for the ride.

Most cabs have a base tarif of under PLN 2.50 and a ride of 10 minutes is under PLN 20.00.

Taxi transfer

Thanks to good advice and clever negotiation by our VT Meeting organiser Matt (matcrazy1) I was able to pre-book a taxi transfer from the airport to the city centre with City Taxis at a discounted cost of only 65 PLN. As there were five of us this was a real bargain, although still dearer than taking the train (see next tip). But as I would have wanted a taxi from the station to my accommodation in the Unikat B&B it was definitely the best option for me.

Our driver met our flight as promised, standing just beyond the barrier with a sign with my name on it. What we hadn’t planned for however was that our group of five was arriving on two separate flights in two different terminals – two of us on a flight from Warsaw that saw us arrive in the domestic terminal, and the other three on an international flight direct from the UK. Although our driver spoke a little English it took a few minutes to explain to him why we had to go to the international terminal to pick them up (especially as Patrick came along for the ride to the train station!) Never mind, the driver was friendly and helpful once he understood the plan, and didn’t charge us anything extra for the diversion.

I also used the same company when I wanted a taxi to the station (Kraków Glówny) at the end of the Euromeeting, sharing with a couple of friends. This time things didn’t go quite as smoothly, although I don’t think that was the driver’s fault. He asked what train we were catching and, trying to be helpful, took us to the parking lot on top of the station from which you can take a lift straight down to your platform. We, however, had arranged to meet all our travelling companions at the main entrance. It took a while to explain this to him, and another while to drive back round a one-way loop to reach the entrance. Once we had alighted and paid him (a reasonable 25 PLN), we realised that we were still not where we wanted to be, as this was the rear entrance – although in fairness the two look so similar that it’s hard to define which is the main one! Anyway, a quick phone call made sure we all met up and none of the confusion was really the poor driver’s fault, so I would certainly recommend this company, especially if you want to pre-book a transfer from the airport.
