Rigashuttle.com - airport transfer disaster!

I just want to warn anyone who is planning on going to Riga and book airport transfer from this company www.rigashuttle.com. Stay away - they are a fraud!

We had booked a transfer and payed 18 Euros in advance. Having done this with no problems so many places before, I assumed this would be no problem.

Well - they never showed up, and did not answer any of the so called emergency numbers. We ended up taking a taxi, which is no problem at all in Riga. I would not have booked transfer at all had I known this in advance.

This company also operates under the name Airportways Worldwide Ltd. Same company and same phone numbers. My advice is to not do any business with this company and spread the word to others!

There are always lots of private taxis waiting at Riga airport so provided you take one of the red ones and agree the price with the driver you shouldn't be paying more than 15 euro from there to any hotel in Riga centre. There really is no need to book shuttle services in advance.

or get a Baltic Taxi voucher (reliable taxi company owned partly by Air Baltic - the lime green taxis at the airport - of which there are usually plenty) -


8 Latvian lats or 12 Euro from Airport to anywhere in Riga.
