Pre-Paid Transfer in Rome

2 Feb 2008 work2travel said

Just curious if anyone's ever done the pre-paid option for your transfer from Rome's Fiumicino Airport to the hotel...<BR><BR>I decided to take it when I booked, but am now wondering if it was a mistake. Do you have to wait forever for it to arrive or is it on a schedule?<BR><BR>I'd love to hear your experiences.<BR>Thanks.<BR> <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)-->

    I booked with Viator which is a 3rd party booking company because of the time I arrived. It was $16 at the time. The company I booked through we just had to wait for the next departur time. Was only a 20 minute wait so not bad.
    I think you are right Matty about the fixed rate. For that price you can get Stefano at Rome Cabs for that price and you get a bottle of wine, and a tour of Rome before you get to your hotel. My aunt did that and loved it. I didn’t.

    Thanks Matty! Always the first to provide good advice.

    My transfer is actually just booked as one-way from the airport to hotel before the tour starts. I’ve got a break between tours so will be flying in from Venice the day of the tour.

    A private car or taxi would be really fantastic! Finger’s crossed.
