Taxi from Lake Como to Malpensa (MXP)

Anyone have any idea how much that would cost? And how long it would take?

The quote I got from Varenna to MXP was 90 euros and takes about an hour forty minutes.

Lake Como is large. The cost would depend on which town you are departing from.

Again, as Sidneynick points out, "Lake Como" is not one specific town. If you mean the city of Como itself, it will take you anywhere from 45 minutes (little to no traffic) to an hour and a half (heavy traffic) and would probably cost somewhere between €55 and €100.

Six of us with luggage travelled last week in people-carrier from centre of Como to MXP. Comfortable, hassle-free ride took approx 40 mins. Fare was 90 euros.

The taxi is well worth it, especially if it means spending an extra night on Lake Como rather than in an airport hotel. Of course it's Italy and things are unpredictable, especially traffic, so leave extra time. Last time I did this there was a truckers strike and we were trying to get around big tanker trucks pulled off on the sides of the road. Slowed us down a bit but I still think we made it in about 90 minutes. Most hotels are happy to arrange the taxi for you and confirm the price.

Negotiate with driver.

Hello from Chicago:

I saw your post on Trip Advisor on taking the "people carrier" from Como to MXP, 40 minute ride and $90 euros. Is people-carrier the name of the taxi/transfer service or what is the name? Also $90 euro is that a per person rate of your entire group of 6? Which seems amazing, we also have 6 in our group.

Thanks in advance for the info, we are staying Argegno for 9 days towards the end of September and can't wait.

#8, 'people carrier' is British English for a large van.

#5 did not provide the name of the company, but you might wish to send him a PM, in case he doesn't want to post that info.

I would assume 90 euro was the flat rate for the whole group.
