Airport transfer in Singapore to a hotel and other destinations can become very tedious. That is why it is very important to have options available in advance to ensure the trip runs smoothly.
There are several ways to transfer from the Changi Airport. One way is by the airport shuttle. This shuttle service offers transportation from the airport to hotels in the city at an affordable, flat rate. The rate is even cheaper for children. Although this service is more affordable, areas and distance of travel may be limited.
If the passenger is looking for luxury, then another option of airport transfer in Singapore is through the Singapore maxicab service. This is a more expensive and private transfer service that offers a variety of luxury cars of different sizes. Some of the company’s vehicles can seat up to 13 people. Maxi cab booking rates start at an hourly rate of $40 for a 7-seater vehicle. This rate is available from 6 a.m., and then the hourly rate increases to $52 at midnight. The hourly maxi cab booking rate for a 13-seater starts at $70 at 7:01 a.m. The rate increases to $80 at 11 p.m.
Unlike the Singapore maxicab, the Singapore taxi services do not require booking. In fact, taxi services can be flagged down. Taxis are required to charge by the meter and are based on a flag down rate and the distance traveled. Depending on the type of taxi, some rates can vary between $3 and $5. The use of a taxi service may work better for those who are traveling shorter distances or for those who prefer to share a ride with other passengers to split the fare. Taxi services can also be booked by phone, and a surcharge may be applied.
The Tanah Merah train station is an option for passengers who are in a hurry. Passengers can take the Westbound train from the airport to the city. Passengers are usually charged a fare according to the total distance traveled. Many passengers choose this form of transportation as a good way to budget money, although carrying luggage from the airport can be inconvenient when traveling by train.
Whether the travel option is the shuttle, the Singapore maxicab, a taxi or by train, having a variety to choose from can help passengers become more comfortable during their stay in Singapore.
