FREE TRANSFER FROM THE AIRPORT
Emerging into the waiting mass of taxi drivers at Odessa Airport’s Arrival’s Hall can be a somewhat intimidating experience. Without wishing to emphasize the point it is not unfair to say that a foreigner is likely to be charged rather more for the twenty-minute drive into town, than a Ukrainian National. Accordingly, as part of our service, ODESSA RENT A FLAT provides an English Speaking Driver to meet its clients. After meeting, the client is taken directly to their Odessa apartment. (Note: This free service is provided between the hours of 08.00 and 20.00 Mon-Sat for stays of 5 days or more and also applies to both Bus and Train Stations. Transfers outside of these hours and rental periods are available for a fee of $20).
