3. Uber or Cabify

Note that Uber is not recognized as an official taxi company, so by the law, it’s illegal. There are cases that legal operating taxi drivers assault Uber drivers when they see them. Therefore, Uber drivers often avoid busy places such as airports. Some drivers will ask you to take place in the front seat, so it looks that you are a friend or walk more or less to the end of the parking (600m away).

Uber will cost you around 25USD / 28 EURO.

Cabify, on the other hand, is a legal operation taxi company in Buenos Aires. As Cabify is pretty popular it is possible that you have to wait a bit.

Are you considering taking a taxi, Uber or Cabify? We suggest booking a Welcome transfer through our website. The price difference is small and the extra comfort you get with a Welcome transfer is definitely worth it after a long flight.

My roots in Buenos Aires started as a tourist. After some great adventures in Argentina, I moved in 2017 to the metropolitan city of Buenos Aires. I felt a need for correct and honest information for tourists. That's why we created this content for you. I hope you enjoy Buenos Aires as much as I do!

    Very helpful piece on airport transportation. Thanks, and rest of the info on your site is very useful. Keep up the good work.

    • I will be arriving EZE by United airlines. I assume it will be terminal A. I plan to use Cabify to get to my hotel in BA. I don’t speak Spanish. So is there a specific area where Cabify will pickup at terminal A?

      • Glenn Reply

        Hello Dino, you probably arrive at terminal A. Theoretically, Cabify is legal in Buenos Aires. You can order the taxi and wait at the parking 200 meters from the terminal. The taxi driver may chat with you via the app to arrange a meeting point.

        To inform other visitors. Taxi drivers (yellow / black taxis) are often looking for people waiting for an Uber or Cabify. They will talk to you and say that it is illegal. Not a pleasant experience.

  3. I was very happy to discover this website. I need to
    to thank you for your time for this wonderful read!!
    I definitely appreciated every bit of it and I have you book-marked to look at
    new information on your site.

      Hi, the taxi touchscreens are replaced due to renovations. In the arrival hall, you will find company taxi stands such as TaxiEzeiza. Also, using Cabify is legal to use in Argentina. Have a nice stay!

    I’ll be arriving from probably a very uncomfortable night at Santiago airport, to EZE at 9am or so. Thanks SO much for the Line 8 bus photo. It’s been mentioned on some sites but there were no info. as to how convenient it was to get to the bus station. One site even mentioned a ‘corporate building’ address?! Crazy unhelpful bloggers. Are there signs in the airport to get to the Bus Stop? I’ll be going to Cabello 3999 to my AirBnB in Palermo, so read that I could take this line, then switch to Metro D line. Am I able to buy a SUBE bus/metro card at the airport? At this point, I might be pretty tired and don’t want to be a victim of crime (not being as aware), so wondering if you might suggest a shuttle. I looked into Tienda Leon and their drop-offs at Terminal Madera or Aeroparque require another connection of another hour or so. Mini Bus Ezeira site says shuttle ends in San Telmo, again, I’ll have to find my way to Palermo and I think it’s another 40-50 min too. Cabify is showing 731.60 (USD12?)… would you say that might be my best option then? THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your great website! I don’t mind taking the bus/metro combo is the transfers are relatively easy. I’m quite a seasoned traveler and do public transportation all over Europe, but I want to acknowledge my possible fatigue level, being a solo female traveler, etc…

      Hi Olivia, taking the bus (8) from Ezeiza airport to Buenos Aires is a good and cheap option. Be aware, that a ride with the bus will take around 1h30 or more. Bus 8 stops at Plaza de Mayo. Most of the subways are departing from there.

      You can buy a SUBE-card in the arrival hall of Ezeiza. Here is some more info about public transport in Buenos Aires: https://secretsofbuenosaires.com/buenos-aires-public-transport-getting-around/

      We recently teamed up with Welcome. For €31 you will have direct transfer to your hotel and a driver will wait for you in the arrival hall. https://bit.ly/2Ku9IIX

      Cabify is a good option for a direct ride to your destination. Possible that you have to wait a while before a Cabify driver accepts your ride. (Busy service).

      We wish you a fantastic time in Buenos Aires. Disfruta 🙂

      • Tienda Leon replied to me and said that for 630 pesos, they’ll take me to Terminal Madera and from there, a shuttle to my area (not sure if it’s to the door step, or a block away)… seems this is the kind of info. I get when messaging between Machu Picchu tour operators and Argentinean operators. They dont’ tell how to pay for it, whether they accept credit cards, whether only cash, etc… maybe you need another blog just on Tienda Leon! Here’s what they said in Spanish, just in case I might have missed something…. doesn’t mention either whether I can go to money changer at the Terminal THEN hop onto shuttle, or if the journey has to be continuous for that 630 pesos: Bus con distribución: $630 por pasajero por viaje. El servicio consta del Bus desde Ezeiza hasta Terminal Madero (Av. Eduardo Madero 401) y luego, desde allí, parte una unidad más pequeña que distribuye a los pasajeros por la zona. Sounds like it may take JUST AS LONG with Tienda as the bus? Your thoughts? BTW when I googlemap EZE to my AirBnB address by public transportation, it states 3 h 36 min and Line 8 didn’t even show up as an option!? Do you know why? This is one of the reasons why researching for Buenas Aires has been so frustrating. Thanks for Welcome offer, but I’d like to keep this trip on a budget. READ YOUR ARTICLE on money changing… if I understood right, go to Banco Nacion to get some pesos first at the airport so that I can buy SUBE pass but probably just change small amount? I’m just going to be there 8 days, so mainly meals USD$200 plenty? For such a ‘small sum’, should I just get ALL from airport? I’m game for going to Calle Florida to your well assessed casa de cambio for the experience. Lastly, will Banco at airport let me change money since I don’t have an account there?? THANKS!!
