Vienna Airport Ground Transportation

Vienna International Airport is translated as "Flughafen Wien" in German. Travelers who are coming into Vienna by car will find it 18 kilometers southeast of central Vienna in Scwechat County. Travel to or from the airport and central Vienna is made easy by the City Airport Train, which reads, "CAT" on the sides. This option is much faster than public transportation or taxi cabs since there are far less stops and no traffic congestion. To view current rates for riding the train, visit the airport's website. The site is in German, so those who are not familiar with the language must click "Sprachen" in the upper right side. A list of languages may be selected, including English. All transportation rates can be found under the appropriate drop-down menu.

Taxis and limousines can be hired in advance. Several providers service the Vienna International Airport. For best results, choose only the providers that are referred by the airport's website. Some smaller companies offering unbelievably low rates will not be reliable transportation sources. Remember to tip drivers of cabs at least 15% and limo or town car hired drivers about 30%. Those who plan to bring their own transportation to the airport will find several pay lots. There is also handicap-parking assistance available upon request.

Vienna Airport Lines and Postbus are the two public transportation bus systems that stop at the airport. There are several routes for each provider that travel through different areas of Vienna. Plan bus trips in advance. Visit the preferred provider's website to view maps, schedules and current fares. Fares are subject to change and must be paid in local currency, so be sure to exchange money at the airport before leaving. The S-Bahn is Vienna's public railway. There are two trains that run to and from the airport frequently. To view scheduling information and fares, visit the airport's website using the instructions in the first paragraph.

Avis, Budget and Hertz are three popular international car rental providers that English-speaking visitors will recognize. Remember to have an international driver's license, a major credit card and proof of insurance before renting. The insurance policies sold by these companies are not the same as those found in the U.S. Travelers should purchase a reliable international policy from Travel Guard for best results. Several large European care rental companies are located near the airport also. Passports or airline ticket stubs may also be required with some companies.
