Which private water taxi best?

While I know prices are the same (set by govt.), I am confused as to which private water taxi to take from Marco Polo airport to our hotel (there are four of us). Some sites advise to book ahead while others say there is no need to. Also, I am especially interested in knowing which of them provides the best & most reputable service. Once again, thanks for your help!

The biggest consortium of water taxis is this one http://www.motoscafivenezia.it/eng/, can book on-line or just pay when you get there.

For a bit of a discount you can use Venice Link, this has to be pre-booked to get the better fare. Venice Link is part of the Alilaguna company. I have purchased and used Venice Link for a private water taxi to my hotel.


Current prices are €100 (on-line price, I have seen it for €110 elsewhere) for Consorzio Motoscafi Venezi

and €95 if you pre-book through Venice Link.

They are both reliable and reputable

Motoscafivenizia are the main Company , with a desk in the Arrivals Hall, the going rate now is €110 depending a little where you stay, would think the most reliable , you can arrange on arrival ,
