Travelling from one airport to another to catch a connecting flight can be stressful, especially when you don’t have much time in between flights. As a taxi is the quickest way to travel from Sheremetyevo to Domodedovo and vice versa, this would be the most convenient option. However, you will pay a premium for the comfort and the door-to-door service.

Editor’s Note

There are quite a few unofficial or ‘pirate’ taxis that operate between Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo. If anyone approaches you at the airport offering a taxi, avoid them, as unlicensed taxi drivers tend to overcharge tourists. Always book from one of the designated desks.

Useful Tips

Regardless of the company, all licensed taxis are yellow and have a visible TAXI sign on the roof.
As most of the taxi drivers don’t speak English, it’s best to let the taxi staff members know if you have any specific requests while you’re booking your taxi, so they can arrange this with the driver.
