Ciao, benvenuto a Roma! Hello and welcome to Rome! Thank you for booking your transfer with Rome Cabs Limousine Car Service, Rome’s leading company for Transfers, Tours and Shore Excursions. Your safe and comfortable arrival into Rome from the airport is our top priority.
Here, we show you How to Meet your Rome Cabs Driver at Rome’s Fiumicino Airport – a very confusing and chaotic place.
Once you’ve arrived at Rome’s Fiumicino Airport, you must first clear customs, retrieve your luggage at the appropriate carousel, and then follow the signs to the exit doors to meet your RomeCabs chauffeur!
There are 2 terminals you could be arriving at: Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, depending on the airline you’re flying with. However, most international flights arrive at Terminal 3.
ARRIVING AT TERMINAL 3
If you arrive at Terminal 3, you will exit through the doors, and enter the waiting area where travelers are met by friends, family, and of course, their private drivers.
Meeting your RomeCabs chauffeur at the meeting point is easy. Upon exiting the doors into the waiting area, turn to your left and a few yards away you’ll notice a large orange column with a sign at the top that reads Meeting Point. Your RomeCabs chaffeur will be waiting for you near the column with a sign bearing your name.
ARRIVING AT TERMINAL 1
If you are flying with KLM, AirFrance, or are flying domestically within Italy, you’ll be arriving at Terminal 1.
There are 2 exits at this terminal located at opposite ends: 1 exit without luggage, and 1 exit with luggage.
Your driver will meet you at the designated Meeting Point, located near the exit with luggage. Just look for the square white column with the blue Meeting Point sign at the top.
~ If you are arriving WITH luggage, turn RIGHT….you will see the Meeting Point column.
~ If you are arriving WITHOUT luggage, turn LEFT at the corner of Chef Express. From here you can spot the Meeting Point on your left side past Rustichelli Mangione Cafe.
Please keep in mind: If your flight arrives at Terminal 5, Terminal 3, or Terminal 2, you will always exit through Terminal 3.
If your flight arrives at Terminal 1, you will always exit through terminal 1.
If for some reason you do not notice your chauffeur, please do not exit the airport to the taxi waiting area outside. Private drivers never pick up their clients at the curbside.
If you have trouble finding your chauffeur, please call us immediately.
From a US cell phone, dial: 011-39-339-352-5028
or from an Italian pay phone or local cell phone dial 339-352-5028
Public payphones are located right near the Meeting Points area and are coin and credit card operated.
UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES: flight and/or luggage delays
Sometimes unforeseen circumstances do happen! If expecting delays arriving into Rome please contact RomeCabs by phone or text message immediately.
Email notices may not reach your chauffeur in time to make last minute changes.
If you are only able to send an email, please write URGENT in the subject line so it will be given priority.
If your luggage is delayed or missing, please get in touch us immediately by phone or text message at the same telephone number so we can notify your chauffeur of the delay and we continue to wait. or a member of your party can come out to the Meeting Point and inform your chauffeur of the delays. Re-entry into the luggage area is possible as long as you hold on to both your boarding pass and passport.
Meeting Time is 30 minutes after your originally scheduled flight arrival in order to give you time to pass through customs and collect your luggage.
UNEXPECTED EARLY ARRIVALS:
If your flight arrives unexpectedly earlier than your originally scheduled pick up time, in your reservation, please know that each terminal has an excellent cafe that serves great coffee and pastries with table service for your convenience that you can enjoy until your driver arrives for your scheduled pick up time.
At Terminal 3 it’s cafe Vacanze Romane.
At Terminal 1 it’s Rustichelli Mangione Cafe and Chef Express.
CONFIRM YOUR NAME AND DESTINATION WITH YOUR DRIVER:
Because it’s possible that more than one person can share the same or similar last name at a time, please ask your chauffeur to confirm your final destination, hotel name or address, and the quoted fare of your transfer. Only your personal Rome Cabs chauffeur will have this information.
After you meet your chauffeur and confirm your information, he or she will accompany you to your deluxe vehicle parked in the airport designated parking area for limousine vehicles, just across the lane. Please note that due to airport security reasons, car service vehicles cannot park at curbside and/or be left unattended and you will be required to walk a few minutes to your vehicle.
HELPFUL TIPS FOR YOUR FCO ARRIVALS and DEPARTURES
To make exiting the airport with luggage much easier, we suggest you rent a trolley from the coin operated stands located at the luggage carousels. Your chauffeur will assist you with your luggage, but for multiple luggage pieces, trolleys at the airport are highly recommended for both your arrivals and departures!
