It’ll very easy to find your driver and the vehicle waiting for you on arrival. It simply depends on the service you booked, as follows:
– Fiumicino Airport:
Exiting from the luggage claim area, just after the Custom, you’ll enter into the airport Arrival Hall passing through opaque, sliding doors. Please head left immediately and walk for about 35 feet, reaching a huge, burnt orange painted pole showing a signage in English saying “Meeting Point). Your driver will be waiting for you there with a sign showing your name.
– Ciampino Airport:
This airport is much smaller than Fiumicino and there isn’t a “Meeting Point” yet, so your driver will be waiting for you just in the Arrival Hall, just after the Custom area, after the sliding doors. He’ll be showing a sign with your name.
– Civitavecchia Port:
Walking down along your cruise ship gangway, you’ll find your driver and its vehicle just at the small area all the limousines are parked. Also in this case, our driver will be waiting for you there with a sign showing your name.
– Hotel Pick-up:
Our driver will at the hotel looking for you at the agreed time and will ask the receptionist to inform you about his arrival. Kindly always check that he is the TakeTaxi.com driver, in order to avoid to be scammed

Always refer to the details listed on the voucher TakeTaxi.com sent you for the service you booked.
If you are unable to locate your driver for any reason on arrival, it is your responsibility to duly call the phone number shown on your voucher, before making any alternative arrangement. Failure to do so will entail the loss of any refund.
If your pick up/drop off details will change after you’ll receive our voucher, please email us immediately, in order to amend services accordingly and, if there is enough time for that, to send you an amended voucher.
Unless otherwise stated, waiting time is 1 hour after the agreed pick-up time. After this time the vehicle will be released.
