Argentina Airport to Buenos Aires City Centre?
After a mammoth 27-hour flight from London to Buenos Aires. Following an emergency landing in Rome, where the paramedics had to board the plane. I finally arrived and was ready to explore the city. But, before I could do that I was subjected to a two hour queue to get through immigration. Then an unfortunate incident of a missing suitcase, or backpack, in my situation. Thankfully, my backpack turned up. It was left on the outside area of the luggage belt, I guess it just wanted some fresh air, poor thing.
Cheapest way to get from Argentina Airport to Buenos Aires City Centre?
Anyway, I left the airport with everything in tow and headed for the city taxi booth just outside. They quoted me US$ 40 for a taxi into the city centre. I was convinced that I could get it cheaper if I found myself a non-airport taxi. As I approached the exit, I soon realised that I had no chance of getting a taxi from there. Fortunately, I managed to flag one down as I was walking back to the city taxi booth and we agreed on a price of US$ 30, including tolls. Not bad at all.
It’s no surprise that there are other ways to get into the city. There’s the Hostel Shuttle bus (www.hostelshuttle.com), which is around AR$40 per person and a great way to meet new people who are also backpacking. However, this does need to be booked in advance so make sure you check out their website for more details.Those of you seeking more luxury transport can contact Silver Star (www.silverstarcar.com).
Just a little tip… some nationalities are required to pay a fee before arriving in the country, so make sure you check with the relevant body before you arrive.
