Reliable and personalised Alexandria Airport shuttle
Alexandria Airport, also known as Borg El Arab International Airport, serves the nearby areas of the Nile Delta in Egypt. It’s a busy airport all year long, so knowing you won’t need to wait in line for a taxi upon landing or to check timetables for local public transport, can certainly take a lot of stress off your shoulders. Pre-booking your Alexandria Airport shuttle with Welcome Pickups ensures you’ll have a professional, English-speaking driver waiting for you upon arrival and reliable door-to-door service at a competitive, fixed fare.
Booking your Welcome transfer takes only a couple of minutes and you can do so as early as you like, thanks to Welcome’s flexible cancellation policy. Make sure to have your flight number handy as you’ll be asked to fill it in; this will ensure your driver will be able to monitor your arrival and adjust your pickup time in case there’s an unexpected delay. All you need to do after landing is locate your driver, who will be holding a sign with your name on it. You’ll also have received an email with their photo and contact information so it should be easy to spot them in the crowd; just like meeting a friend who’s there to greet you warmly!
During the ride to your accommodation, feel free to ask your driver for recommendations on places to eat or must-visit attractions; as a local, your driver will be happy to share their knowledge of the area. What is more, since your transfer will be pre-paid, so at the end of the ride you can just say your goodbyes to your driver or ask them to book a return transfer with Welcome Pickups; that way you can enjoy the same level of service on your way back to the airport!

Fare for a taxi from Alexandria Airport
Local authorities in Alexandria have made an effort to control taxi fares by making the use of a taximeter mandatory. However, this still doesn’t apply to all operators and not all drivers put the taximeter to use during the ride. Even though the taxi service in Alexandria is overall reliable, to avoid being unpleasantly surprised after the end of the ride, it’s advised to agree on the fare with the driver before you get in the taxi.
The average fare for a standard taxi from Alexandria Airport for up to 4 passengers is about €5 (EGP 168). To ensure a competitive set rate that you’ll know and pay for in advance, you can always pre-book your Alexandria Airport shuttle with Welcome Pickups.
