Other Options for Airport Transfers from Major Airports in Vietnam

SHUTTLE BUSES

shuttle bus original vietnam airport transfer

With the increasing quality in service, shuttle buses have become a popular choice of airport transportation

If you do not have much luggage or carry-on and want to travel economically, the shuttle bus is a good choice for you. Depending on the airports and city you’ve landed in, the prices for shuttle buses might be different, 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 in the airport too early or too late, it is out of the question.

RIDE-HAILING SERVICES

Grab is the predominant ride-hailing app in Vietnam

Ride-hailing services in Vietnam are becoming more and more 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 quite easy, and there are choices for either a motorbike or a car ride. However, keep in mind that the price can fluctuate a lot depending on the destination and time that you book.

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

AIRLINE TRANSFER SERVICES

PRIVATE AIRPORT TRANSFER SERVICES

A more pricy choice for high-quality service that caters to your personal needs

Private airport transfer services can provide you comfort, flexibility as well as great customization options; however, it can be a pricy choice. Many private airport transfer services are available to book online as well as on arrival at the airport. 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
