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.

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

Directions for your Transfer from Istanbul Airport
Istanbul airport is the newest super airport in Istanbul. This airport took over all flight paths from Ataturk airport and now functions as the major flight hub for travellers entering the Middle East and Asia. Istanbul airport is located around 44km from the centre of Istanbul. To get there, your driver will take the main highway D020, keeping in the right-hand lane until he takes the ramp to F.S.M. Köprüsü/Kadıköy/Ankara. Your driver will then merge back onto highway E80. He will then take the exit toward Kağıthane/Sütlüce, cross the river and Imrahor Cd, and continue onto Beşiktaş-Kağıthane Tüneli. This will lead you into the Taksim area, where your driver will use the local roads to take you to your hotel.
If you’re travelling to Sabiha Gökçen airport, you can still book your Istanbul airport transfer with Welcome Pickups.
Why an Istanbul Airport Taxi is for You
Are you looking for the most reliable and convenient Istanbul airport transfer? A transportation option that will get you from the airport to your hotel directly and safely? Then you need an Istanbul airport taxi. Forget about dragging your heavy luggage through the public train or bus stations and relax in your very own, private vehicle. Istanbul airport taxis are available 24/7 and offer highly competitive prices.
The Cost of an Istanbul Airport Transfer
There’s no set cost for an Istanbul airport taxi to the city centre of Istanbul. Instead, your journey will be calculated using a taximeter based on the distance travelled. The total price will be around 30€ during the day and 35€ at night. However, due to the intense traffic in Istanbul and extra charges for things such as waiting time and luggage, you could end up paying much more. The only way to have the peace of mind of a flat rate fee is to book your Istanbul airport transfers in advance.
