Taxi service
The taxi services in Sibiu are a convenient way to get from the airport to your destination. You can catch a taxi from the designated area, unless you have pre booked one. The taxi area is located outside the terminal building, on the left hand side of arrivals. If there aren't any cabs available or if you prefer a specific company, airport staff from the Information Office located in the public area can place an order for you, free of charge.
The taxi cabs transporting passengers to the airport have free parking access in front of the airport’s terminals.
The price to the hotel is between: 6-8 euro (30 – 40 lei)

Use only cabs which display transportation license, prices and are using taximeters. Remember to always ask for a receipt and keep your receipt as it contains details of your journey.
