TAXI TRANSFER FROM HELSINKI AIRPORT TO ESPOON PURSISEURA

Dear Lightning sailor,

As outlined elsewhere, there are good public connections to take you from Helsinki Airport to the venue at Espoon Pursiseura (Nuottatie 19, Espoo/Matinkylä). Read more: Coming to EPS

But if your whole crew is travelling together and you have a lot of luggage, a taxi may be more convenient – and not very much more expensive.

The taxi sector in the Helsinki area was deregulated very recently so different companies have different pricing structures.

Here are some examples:

Helsinki Taxi: Estimate 52 – 65 EUR for Airport to Espoon Pursiseura (1-4 persons)

Lähitaxi: Price structure very similar to Helsinki Taxi.

Yellow Line:Minibus type grouped taxis, taking passengers to different locations. For 3-4 persons the fare to the venue is abt 49€, for 1-2 persons somewhat less. You may have to wait up to 15 minutes. With a private Yellow Line cab, the cost of the transfer is about 75EUR.

Other taxi companies may offer rides at the Airport. We recommend asking for a fixed price or at least an estimate.
