The Best Palermo Airport Taxi Service

When arriving in a new city, the last thing you want to do is find your way around a busy airport or navigate public transport in a foreign language; that is why it is highly recommended to take a Palermo Airport taxi and begin your holiday in a private air-conditioned vehicle.

If you book your transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups, your driver will be waiting for you in the Arrivals Hall, holding a sign with your name it. They will then help you with your luggage and lead you to your pre-paid vehicle. If you’re plane is late, there’s no need to panic. As all of our drivers receive live updates on delayed flights, so that there’s someone waiting for you no matter when you land.

As you enjoy your Palermo Airport taxi ride to your hotel, your trained English-speaking driver will give you a mini tour of the city, answer any questions you may have, and even recommend some local favourites. With all your needs taken care of – all you have to do is sit back, relax, and take in the views.
