Flying to Krakow? Cheap Krakow Airport Transfers as a first time visitor, you must wonder what a fair rate is? That is why we have introduced a transport service that will give the best deal in terms of service, quality and price from the Airport to your destination and return with a clear indication of the cost.
Kraków Airport – Cheap Krakow Airport Transfers
Located 17km west of the city centre, Kraków Airport was the subject of a one billion PLN investment, which resulted in the opening of a brand-new passenger terminal in September 2015. The new T1 terminal conveniently connects directly to the airport parking garage, the Hilton Garden Inn hotel next to it, and the new Balice train station via a skywalk leading straight into the terminal. Terminal 1 now boasts the full services and amenities of a modern airport, including ATMs and currency exchange, tourist information, car rental desks, restaurants and shops, new business lounges and VIP services. Despite the increase in volume, getting through check-in and security at Kraków Airport is still relatively speedy compared to most airports.
Getting to/from the Krakow Airport:
The best way to get between the airport and Kraków’s Old Town is by train. Trains run reliably every 30mins between 04:00 and 24:00, departing from platform 3 of Kraków’s train station (check rozklad-pkp.pl for exact departure times). The journey time is about 18mins, and passengers are dropped off at a new Balice station that is connected directly to the terminal via a skywalk (no more shuttles!). Tickets are 8zł, and can be bought from ticket machines on the platform, or on-board the train. Unbelievably (to us anyway), these machines actually take cash, coins and credit cards.
In the unlikely event that you can’t take the train, public bus 208 makes the same journey once an hour, while bus 252 runs between the airport and ‘Os. Podwawelskie’ every 30mins with central stops at Cracovia Błonia, Jubilat and ICE. Night bus 902 also makes the trip from the airport to the main station with hourly departures beginning at 23:25. Bus is the cheaper option, but the journey takes 35-45mins depending on traffic. Buy a 4/2zł single journey fare from the ticket machine at the bus-stop or on-board the bus. Upon leaving Terminal 1, you’ll find the bus stop to your right. Exact bus times and routes can be checked online at mpk.krakow.pl or krakow.jakdojade.pl.
Cheap Krakow Airport Transfers Taxis:
The airport has its own ‘Krakow Airport Taxi’ service with vehicles waiting outside the terminal entrances. The idea is that this ‘trusted’ service offers a set price range of 69-89zł from the airport to the Old Town, with no monkey business and no night time price hikes. In reality, this service is fleecing people by protecting its ridiculously high prices. If you go more than 15km the price jumps from 69zł to 89zł, so expect to pay 89zł unless your hotel is en route on the outskirts of the city centre. We advise confirming the fare for the 25-35min journey (note that it can take longer during peak traffic times) beforehand, and trying to split the cost with other travellers in the same situation.
Conversely, fares from the Old Town back to the airport range from only 35-70zł depending on time of day, and whether you call ahead or hail one in the street. Use our Taxi listings and you should be able to negotiate a daytime fare as low as 40zł from the Old Town. That’s a huge difference.
