Welcome's Taxi Fleet at Catania airport (CTA)
At Welcome Pickups we understand how enjoyable it is when arriving in a new city, ready to get your holiday started; and one of the downfalls of taking a regular airport taxi, if you are travelling in a bigger group, is having to split your travel party up in order to get to your hotel. At Welcome, we offer different sized vehicles to accommodate you and your loved ones. If you are travelling in a small group of 4 people or less, we have elegant Sedans – on the other hand, if you are travelling in a big group of up to 8 people, we have roomy minivans to get you where you need to be in comfort.
