Directions for your transfer from Rio de Janeiro airport

Rio de Janeiro–Antonio Carlos Jobim/Galeão International Airport is the second busiest airport in Brazil, facilitating both large international airlines and small local carriers. Rio de Janeiro airport is located just 23km from the city of Copacabana, so this journey shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes in a Rio de Janeiro airport taxi. After leaving the airport compound, your driver will head northwest toward Av. Vinte de Janeiro and then turn right onto Av. Vinte de Janeiro. After another right onto Estrada do Galeão, your taxi driver will take a left onto Viaduto Saint Hilaire, before exiting onto Rua Humaitá and again to R. Pinheiro Guimarães. Finally, he will take the Túnel Alaor Prata into the city centre of Copacabana. 

Hassle-free transfers with a Rio de Janeiro airport taxi

Trying to work out the pubic transport in a foreign language isn’t just stressful, it can also be dangerous. You subject your personal belongings to strangers and there’s a high chance of getting lost. Instead, you can take a direct, private and fully regulated Rio de Janeiro airport taxi and make your way to your hotel in comfort. 

Cost of a Rio de Janeiro airport taxi

All registered and official Rio de Janeiro airport taxis use a taximeter to calculate their fare based on distance travelled. If your Portuguese is up to scratch, you can try to haggle a set-rate fare, but as a tourist, this can be extremely difficult. If you’d prefer to have a secure set-rate fee, we suggest booking your Rio de Janeiro taxi in advance.

Unlike many cities, Rio de Janeiro airport taxi drivers offer both flat-rate and taximeter options. If you pick one of the several official companies inside Terminal 1 and 2 at the airport, you can often get a taxi for the set fee of €22 to €29. A much cheaper option is to leave the arrivals terminal and take one of the local taxis for your transfer from Rio de Janeiro airport. These usually cost around €13 to reach Copacabana in normal traffic. Having said this, extra charges for travelling at night, excess luggage and number of people may still apply.

The benefits of booking a Welcome Airport Taxi

The local taxis can get you to your hotel in Casablanca fairly quickly and without much trouble, but you may still have to haggle the fare and could run into some nasty extra charges for luggage, vehicle type and the time of day you need to travel. Choosing a Welcome Pickups taxi for your transfer from Rio de Janeiro airport eliminates those worries, gives you 24/7 customer service and a flat-rate fee you can count on.
