A friendly and personalised transfer from Punta Arenas Airport
Punta Arenas Airport, also called Presidente Carlos Ibáñez International Airport, is a small airport serving the city of Punta Arenas in southern Chile. Having to wait in line for a taxi or looking for available public transport options is not the best way to start your trip. Instead, pre-booking your transfer from Punta Arenas Airport with Welcome Pickups guarantees a comfortable and personalised ride to your accommodation.
No matter what time your flight arrives, you’ll have a professional, English-speaking driver waiting for you and a private vehicle ready to take you to your destination. The booking process takes only a couple of minutes and by paying in advance you won’t have to worry about currency exchange as soon as you land. Once you claim any luggage, you can head straight towards the exit, where you’ll meet your driver holding a sign with your name on it. After they greet you warmly, your driver will take you to your private car, and you can simply relax and enjoy the ride.
What is more, you can use this time to ask your driver for any tips on the local culture, cuisine, and must-do activities; that’s the benefit of meeting a local as soon as you land. If you haven’t booked any transportation for your return to the airport, don’t forget to ask your driver for assistance; they will help you book a return transfer with Welcome Pickups so that you have nothing to worry about during your trip.
