TIPS for booking your perfect Transfer from Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia


Book transfer from Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia



 1.  Book your flight to arrive at Fiumicino Airport as early in the morning as possible 


Scheduling your flight to arrive at Rome’s airport as early as possible allows you some leeway in case you experience flight delays,  delays in baggage claims, or unforeseen traffic delays.

Scheduling your flight arriving too close to your ship’s departure time places you at risk of arriving at the port too late in case you experience any unforeseen delays. 

Most ships depart at approximately 5 PM, and their embarkation time can be anywhere between 12 -3 PM.   Travel time by car from Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia is about 1 hour.  If, for example, your flight lands at noon, you barely have enough time to clear customs, collect your luggage, meet your driver, and drive to Civitavecchia.  Any minor delay could place you at risk of arriving too late to your ship.



 2.  Book your private transfer from Rome Airport to Civitavecchia correctly


It’s vital to double-check your reservation to make sure you’ve placed it correctly.  Some of the most common mistakes with booking transfers from Fiumicino Airport are booking with the wrong flight number, the wrong flight arrival time, or even the wrong arrival date.

If you book a transfer from Rome Airport to Civitavecchia incorrectly, it may not be possible to allocate a driver in real-time or at the last minute to take you to your cruise ship.

Also, be sure to include the name of your ship to be dropped off at and not just the cruise line since cruise lines may have multiple ships docking on the same day and you don’t want to risk confusion.


 3.  Inform the Transfer Company of all the luggage you are bringing


Luggage for Transfers from Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia


Be sure to provide the accurate number of suitcases and carryons you are bringing in order to be provided a suitable vehicle or to reserve a 2nd vehicle if your luggage exceeds your vehicle’s luggage capacity. 

By not informing the company of your correct amount of luggage, you would create undue delays and uncertainties should your luggage exceed the vehicle’s luggage capacity making it impossible to proceed without first resolving the issue.


4.  Cruising with Children from Civitavecchia?

If you are traveling with young children, be sure to include the children as passengers so you will be provided a suitable vehicle as children are required by law to be secured in their own passenger seats.

If you are traveling with young children that require a child seat or booster seat and you will not be bringing them with you, be sure to request child safety seats in advance in your reservation providing the Age and the Weight of each child that requires them.  Child seats are provided only upon request, so be sure to request yours and provide all the details so a suitable child seat or booster seat will be provided for you.



 5.  Bring your Civitavecchia Transfer Voucher with you.

Your Confirmation Vouchers include important information such as your reservation details and the company’s phone number in case of emergency. 

If you are experiencing delays in customs or baggage claims at Fiumicino Airport, cannot find the Meeting Point to meet your driver, or can’t spot your driver, be sure to call the company at the phone number provided for assistance and to inform your driver of your delay.  

If you are not traveling with an international cell phone, there are payphones inside the terminal building that are coin and credit card operated. 


 6. Avoid Shared Shuttles from Rome Airport to Civitavecchia

A shared shuttle may save you money, but they’re also not as reliable since shared shuttles can often be unpredictable and require waiting for other passengers to arrive.  This means you might have to wait longer than you anticipated, creating uncertainties and stress of getting to your ship in a timely manner.


Avoid shuttle transfers from Fiumicino to Civitavecchia

In the event that your flight might be delayed or you are stuck in baggage claims trying to locate your luggage, it could mean missing your shuttle since shared shuttles would not be able to wait long for late-arriving passengers as to not create undue delays for the other passengers who arrived on time. If you miss your shuttle due to unforeseen delays, you may not know when the next shuttle would be available.

If everything runs smoothly, booking a shared shuttle from Airport to Civitavecchia can save you money.  On the other hand, it can also create costly issues that can impact your on-time arrival at Civitavecchia Port.
