They say it’s the journey, and not the destination, that matters. Sometimes, the route to your resort is well worth the chance to sit back and enjoy the views. With that in mind, here are some of our most scenic airport transfers to popular holiday destinations.
Make sure your holiday starts from the moment you step off that plane when you book your travel with HolidayTaxis.
Milan Airport to Lake Como
A transfer from Milan Airport to any destination further north is almost guaranteed to offer spectacular panoramic views of the Italian Lakes. If you’re staying in one of the picturesque villages around Lake Como itself, then you’re in for a treat. The Via Regina (or ‘royal road’) coastal route has previously been named one of Europe’s best summer drives. A summer transfer will take you through lush Alpine landscapes, past the pretty waterfront gardens of the villas in Bellagio and Tremezzo. During winter, on your way to the ski slopes, the view of the lake is backed by snow-capped mountain peaks.
Book your private transfer or luxury car to Lake Como, we’ll get you there in 75 minutes.
Tenerife Airport to Los Gigantes
Tenerife offers some of the most scenic drives in the world, from the hairpin twists and turns of the road to Masca or volcanic landscapes of the route to the Teide National Park. If you’re enjoying a holiday in Costa Adeje or Los Gigantes, however, you can expect a scenic coastal transfer that takes in some of the island’s best beaches, all the way to the dramatic cliffs in the north.
Book your taxi transfer from Tenerife South Airport to Costa Adeje and get to your hotel in 15 minutes.
Along Australia’s Great Ocean Road
The drive along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia, has been described as the trip of a lifetime. Starting 62 miles southwest of Melbourne Airport, in Torquay, it traces Australia’s most southern shoreline for 151 miles. Wherever you’re staying on Victoria’s coast, your transfer will take you along an incredibly scenic seaside route, past golden beaches and the towering 12 Apostles cliffs.
Book your private transfer to and from Melbourne Airport and discover southern Australia.
Venice by Water Taxi
Why take a coach when the best way to arrive in the Floating City is in true Venice style: by boat! For this reason, we offer our special water taxi transfers from Venice Airport to various locations in around the city. Smaller than other forms of transport, our water taxis will take you through the narrower canals and beautiful, quieter areas of the city. Feel like a movie star as you arrive at the city centre in one of our private, luxury boats; perfect for honeymoons and special occasions.
Naples Airport to the Amalfi Coast
If it’s beautiful Italian scenery you’re looking for then the drive from Naples Airport to the Amalfi Coast won’t disappoint. The colourful hillside towns that cascade down to the shoreline are connected by a narrow road that winds its way around cliffs that rise up high above the Tyrrhenian Sea. The route around Sorrento, in particular, is a memorable drive that takes in stunning views of the city of Naples, Mount Vesuvius and the nearby island of Capri.
Santiago Airport to the city centre
The spectacular views of Santiago begin as soon as the plane begins to touch down. Located only 9 miles from the city, the airport landing presents the sight of the Chilean capital encircled by the Andes. Just as impressive is the 20-minute transfer from the airport to the centre, offering an amazing look at the giant buildings of the metropolis, backed by towering mountain peaks.
Geneva Airport to the mountains
A ski transfer from Geneva to any of the big ski resorts in the alps is sure to provide some mind-blowing scenery. The route takes you straight into the mountains, with the first spectacular views of Mont Blanc as your ride nears the top of Chamonix Valley. Some of the best Alpine views can be experienced on the way to Les Gets and Morzine, not far from Evian les Bains on the bank of Lake Geneva. If you’re staying near Annecy, or skiing in Las Clusaz, your journey will take you past the crystal clear, turquoise waters of Lac d’Annecy.
Dubrovnik Airport to the city centre
The drive along Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast frequently features in the top ten drives in the world, and the transfer route from the airport to the city centre offers a glimpse of the enchanting coastline that awaits. The best part, however, is the vision of the city itself slowly coming into view. From above, the route takes in the characteristic terracotta rooftops of Dubrovnik, enclosed by the great stone walls of the capital, further surrounded by the azure Mediterranean Sea.
Copenhagen Airport to Malmö
Fans of Scandi Noir will know this route already as it features on one of the most popular Scandinavian crime TV series: The Bridge. The Øresund Bridge is particularly striking as it runs almost 5 miles from Sweden’s coast before arriving at the artificial island of Peberholm, in the middle of the strait, where the road then dives into the 2.5-mile underwater Drogden Tunnel, continuing on to Denmark. Flights from the UK to Copenhagen are often cheaper than flights to Malmö, making this a popular – and scenic – way to get to Sweden’s southern cities.

The Las Vegas Strip
The route from McCarran International Airport down the Las Vegas Strip is pretty loud for all the senses. Traffic along the strip can often get quite congested so a private taxi the best way to arrive in Vegas, avoiding the hassle of driving and leaving you free to take in all the sights. If you’re arriving after dark, expect a sensory overload of neon signs and dancing fountains.
