No Hidden Fees for your Calgary Airport Taxi
Calgary is a cosmopolitan hub located in Alberta, USA. With its large skyscrapers, world-class shopping and dining and incredible nightlife, Calgary is incredibly modern. However, it’s still steeped in Western culture with its country music scene, summer Rodeo festival and famous Calgary Stampede. Getting from the airport to your hotel quickly and comfortably, so you can start to explore this amazing city is a must, that’s why we recommend taking a Calgary airport taxi for your transfer.
From the moment your plane touches down at Calgary International Airport (YYC), your driver will be waiting for you just outside of the Terminal, holding a sign with your name on it. After a warm country greeting, your driver will help you carry your luggage to your pre-selected vehicle. If your flight is delayed, there’s no need to worry. All of our drivers receive live updates on your flight time, so they will always be there when you land.
While you make your way into the heart of Calgary, your driver will share with you a few local tips and tricks to make the most out of your stay and will answer any questions you may have about the city. Let Welcome Pickups take care of your Calgary airport shuttle so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
