Getting To Italy

Airport Transfers - Sharing a taxi

Shared Taxi Transfer Times

In order to transfer you from Bari to Kaliyoga with maximum ease and minimal cost, we can arrange Shared Taxis at Bari Airport and Bari Central Train Station (see meeting point images below.) Please make sure that you write your flight details in the boxes provided on your booking form (you’ll need to sign in, or set up a customer account to do this). The transfer time is roughly 75 mins. Cost per passenger is 45€ per trip.

ARRIVAL (Sunday): Usually there are two transfer times: 1pm and 4.30pm, but these may vary slightly depending on when the majority of the group arrives. We will do our best to co-ordinate these times to meet as many flights or trains as possible. If your arrival time is not within our transfer times, please ask us for a Private Transfer (see below).

DEPARTURE  (Saturday): Shared Taxi transfers will normally leave Kaliyoga at 9.30am (arriving at Bari airport @11am). For guests with later flights, a shared taxi can be arranged to leave Kaliyoga around 12 noon, though the timing can be flexible based on flight departure time.

Private Taxi Transfers
If your arrival time at Bari is outside our Shared Taxi Transfer service, please give us at least 24 hours notice to arrange a Private Taxi Transfer for you. Typical cost will be around €110 one way – but if other guests arrive at a similar time and are willing to share the car with you, the cost can be shared. 


SUGGESTION: If the flight arrival time to Bari from your departure city is not convenient, why not arrive a day early and book a hotel in Bari for one night, then enjoy a leisurely morning before meeting our driver on Sunday at lunchtime, either at Bari airport, or at Bari central railway station. 

Other Arrival Cities

Most people fly to Bari, which is why our Shared Taxis depart from this city, but if you are flying to Brindisi, or arriving from another town in the region, like Matera, Lecce, Polignano etc, we can also arrange private transfers for you. Likewise, if you are getting the train to our local town, Martina Franca, we can arrange for a taxi to pick you up from there (there are no taxi’s waiting at the station).
