Transportation to Benin City Airport from the City Center

TRANSPORTATION TO THE AIRPORT FROM BENIN CITY CENTER

The city center of Benin City is located approximately 6 kilometers away from the city's airport. You can travel to the airport by using a taxi or airport shuttle that you can find without difficulty in almost every point of the city center which is not too big. Another means of transportation that the visitors of the city can use for this travel is hotel shuttle. These services, which are usually provided by big hotels, offer service for their guests at certain hours of the day as a more economical and comfortable transportation option to the airport.

Private Shuttle

Private shuttles are among the alternatives that carry passengers from the city center to Benin Airport. However, they do not offer a comfortable alternative like door-to-door taxis or hotel shuttles. If your hotel is close to the center and you do not have much items to carry along the road, you can come to Benin Airport by using a private shuttle departing from central locations. The prices of these transportation vehicles are usually not too high, but you can learn the transportation fee from the shuttle driver to the airport before getting on the vehicle.

Hotel Shuttle

Many big hotels in the city center of Benin City offer their passengers the opportunity to reach the airport from the center with hotel shuttles.

Taxi

In Benin City, taxi is one of the most preferred vehicles for the transportation from the city center to the airport. If you need to hurry up to catch your plane, you can take a taxi to save time. The fact that the airport is located only 6 kilometers from the center makes the taxis in the city one of the budget-friendly options for this distance. If you need to travel to the center from a distant region, you may have difficulty in finding a taxi. Although there are many taxis at the central points of the city, the number of vehicles can decrease as you move away from the center. If you are traveling alone in the city, you should definitely choose one of the licensed vehicles to be safe. Some regions may not be very safe late especially at night hours. You can also choose to travel with one of the local guides for a more comfortable and trouble-free journey.

Car Rental

Although renting a car from one of the local car rental companies offering service in the city, it is not much preferred. If you are planning to travel to different centers around the city, you can rent a car to reach these places and then deliver the car at the airport by informing the rental company. Renting a car in the city is usually easy and does not take long, but keep in mind that you must have an international driver's license to rent a car in the city.
