Travel safely with Welcome Pickups
Net Safety Score
We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.
20 minute gap between transfers
Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.
Regular Car Sanitisation
Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol
When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.
Sanitiser in every car
We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride
Trustworthy Santiago airport transfer
There’s nothing better than stepping off a plane, collecting your luggage and then walking straight to your private transport. No need to worry about how to get to your hotel, how much it will cost or how long it will take with a pre-booked and direct Santiago airport taxi.
The moment you arrive at Santiago airport (SCL), your friendly driver will be there to greet you, right outside of your arrival terminal, holding a sign with your name written on it. Even if your flight schedule changes unexpectedly, your driver will be instantly updated with the new arrival time, so they will always be there when you land. After your warm reception, your driver will give you a hand with your luggage and lead you to your pre-selected vehicle.
As you begin your Santiago airport transfer, your driver will happily answer any questions you may have about the city and will share with you a few must-see attractions for your stay. With Welcome Pickups taking care of all your transfer needs, all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Directions for your Santiago airport transfer
Santiago International Airport (SCL), also known as Nuevo Pudahuel or Arturo Merino Benítez Airport, is the largest and busiest airport in Chile, hosting both domestic and international flights. The distance from Santiago airport to the city centre of Santiago is 16 km, so a Santiago airport taxi ride, under normal traffic conditions, should take approximately 25 minutes. After exiting the airport compound your driver will take Armando Cortinez Poniente (West) and merge onto Costanera Norte (North) after the roundabout. They will then stay on Costanera Norte for about 12 km, before taking exit 19 onto Route 5. Keeping left, your driver will drive towards Manuel Rodriguez Avenue which heads directly to the heart of Santiago. From here, they will use the local roads to reach your hotel.
A Santiago taxi for you
Although taking a Santiago airport taxi is a little more expensive than the public transport options, it’s the only direct transfer available, meaning you can start enjoying your vacation sooner. Choosing a Welcome taxi also means that you get to enjoy set-rate fees, English speaking drivers, 24/7 customer service and amazing travel extras.
Santiago airport transfer prices
Unfortunately, the local taxi drivers at Santiago airport don’t offer a flat-rate fee. They will calculate the fee of our journey into the city centre of Santiago using a taximeter based on distance. The total cost will be around €27, but additional fees may be applied for things such as excess luggage, number of people travelling and transfers during public holidays. To secure a set-rate fee with no hidden charges, we recommend booking your Santiago airport transfer with Welcome Pickups.
The benefits of booking a Welcome Airport Taxi
One of the main advantages of Welcome Pickups, compared to other similar companies, is the broad selection of travel options we offer, which allows travellers to fully personalise their travel experience. After booking your Santiago airport transfer, you open up a whole world of travel extras. For example, you can purchase our skip the line tickets in advance for some of the most well-known attractions of Santiago, such as San Cristobal Hill, Sky Costanera and Pablo Neruda’s House ‘La Chascona’, and have them delivered by your driver on the day of your pickup. This means that you won’t have to waste a single moment of your vacation standing in the long ticket lines. Let Welcome take care of all your in-destination travel needs, so you can make the most of our exciting stay in Santiago.
