    Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.

    Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol

  • Contactless ride

    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.

Directions for your transfer from Doha airport

Doha airport, also known as Hamad International Airport, is the only international airport in the state of Qatar. Opening in 2014, this airport is extremely modern and well equipped. The journey from the airport to the city centre using a Doha airport taxi shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. After exiting the airport, your driver will head west on Perimeter Rd and then take a left on Perimeter Rd. From here, your driver will then take a right onto Al Matar St before continuing onto Banks Street. Finally, your driver will head left onto Ali Bin Abdullah St and take the local roads to reach your hotel.

Top-rated Doha airport transfers

Although there are cheaper transfer options, there are no trains that run from Doha airport to the city centre, so these options are extremely slow and overcrowded. If you’re looking to keep yourself and your personal belongings safe and get to your hotel as quickly as possible, a Doha airport taxi is the transfer option for you.

What’s the fare of a Hamad airport taxi?

Taxis at Doha airport are called Karwa taxis and operate using a set taximeter pricing system put in place by the state-wide company Mowasalat. Because of this, you can very easily estimate the price of your journey using the distance you will need to travel. Having said this, extra costs for late-night driving, travelling during holidays and excess luggage may apply. To have the peace of mind of a set-rate fee, we suggest booking your Doha taxi transfer in advance. 

All Karwa taxis leaving Doha airport use a taximeter. The base fare for this journey is €6.23 (QR25) and the price per km is €0.30 (QAR 1.20) from 0:00 to 21:00 and €0.45 (QAR 1.80) during the nighttime hours of 21:00 and 5:00. The total price for a transfer from Doha airport to the city centre of Doha will be around €10.
