Travel safely with Welcome Pickups
Net Safety Score
We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.
20 minute gap between transfers
Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.
Regular Car Sanitisation
Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol
When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.
Sanitiser in every car
We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

Directions for your Transfer from Dakar Airport
The Blaise Diagne International Airport is about 60 kilometres east of Dakar’s city centre. By taxi, the trip to reach the city takes around an hour. First, you will take Route de service to the A1 highway. After around 30 minutes on the A1, you will continue onto the N1 which will take you the rest of the way to Dakar, where your driver will take the local streets to reach your accommodation.
Flat rate fee for your Dakar Airport Transfer
Many Dakar taxis don’t have a working taximeter. The fare is generally negotiated with the driver before starting the trip. Generally, you can expect the fare to be around €0.46 (CFA 300) per kilometre. The cost to reach Dakar from the airport may range from €18.35 (CFA 12,000) to €30.58 (CFA 20,000), whilst you will also have to pay any applicable toll fees. Keep in mind that the fare normally increases at night. Another option is to book your Dakar airport transportation in advance with Welcome Pickups for a competitive flat rate and no hidden fees for your peace of mind.
