Other Options for Transfers from Major Airports in Vietnam

SHUTTLE BUSES FROM MAJOR AIRPORTS IN VIETNAM

If you do not have much luggage or carry-on and want to travel economically, the shuttle bus is a good choice. Depending on the airport and city you’ve landed in, the shuttle bus prices might differ, but they usually range from 10,000 – 50,000 VND per trip.

  • Pros: cheap and convenient. Some buses can drop you off directly at the hotel per request.
  • Cons: the buses run on a fixed schedule, typically from 5:30 AM – 9 PM, so if you arrive at the airport too early or too late, it is out of the question.

RIDE-HAILING SERVICES FROM MAJOR AIRPORTS IN VIETNAM

Ride-hailing services in Vietnam are becoming increasingly popular, even more so than other means of transportation. Because many major airports in Vietnam are equipped with wifi connections, booking a ride with these apps is relatively easy, and there are choices for either a motorbike or a car ride. However, remember that the price can fluctuate a lot depending on the destination and time you book. The recommended apps are Grab, Gojek, Be, and XanhSM.

  • Pros: convenient, trustworthy, little to no language barrier. You can check for the route and price on the ride-hailing app.
  • Cons: booking a ride at night may be risky, and private vehicles are not allowed to park in front of the airport for too long.

AIRLINE TRANSFER SERVICES FROM MAJOR AIRPORTS IN VIETNAM

Many airlines, such as Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet Air, provide airport transfers when you book a ticket with them. The price can vary depending on the airline and the type of transfer vehicle, but it typically costs around 35,000 VND – 50,000 VND per ticket.

PRIVATE AIRPORT TRANSFER SERVICES FROM MAJOR AIRPORTS IN VIETNAM

Private airport transfer services can provide you comfort, flexibility, and great customization options; however, it can be a pricy choice. Many personal airport transfer services are available to book online and on arrival. Choices for vehicles can range from 4 to 45-seater coaches to luxury limousines.

  • Pros: personalized services, various luxurious options, suitable for business travelers.
  • Cons: can be costly

Admittedly, transportation in Vietnam is not the most convenient. However, don’t let a minor disadvantage deter you from making the most of your Vietnam trip. Taxis used to be the most viable option, but now you have many choices for a cheaper cost and more comfortable experience. Our advice: don’t wait until you land at the airport to decide. You might need to download some apps or plan ahead by signing up for 4G services to book a ride from the airport.
