Current price for a taxi from the Airport into El Calafate

Can someone give me the current price please for a taxi from the Airport into the township of El Calafate.

Do I need to book a taxi in advance or are there plenty waiting at the airport? We arrive at 5 pm on a Thursday next month.

I also read previous posts from last year that if you book your return trip you get a discounted price, is that still correct?

Thanks

Hola Pamies!

You can book a taxi on arrival. Having said this, also bear in mind that if you are not one of the fist ones getting out of the airplane, you might have to wait, as there are not as many cars in the airport as there are in the international airport in Buenos Aires (actually, just a few).

BUT- you also have the option of the shuttle bus, that will drop you off at the door of your hotel.

Hope it helps!

Thanks Say_Hueque_Argentina

Do I have to book seats on the shuttle bus or is it just first in first served?

Any idea on the prices for the shuttle bus and a taxi?

Hola Pamies!

Shuttle bus is less than 50 AR$ (10 U$S) - you book it on arrival, you don't choose seats- is not a big bus and driving into town is just 20 minutes. Although, bear in mind that in the shuttle service you will be leaving lot of people in the hotels.

If you are lucky and you are in one of the first hotels coming into town, will be great, if you are in one of the hotels at the end of town might feel long way home, but still good value.

Not very sure about how much a taxi is now.

Have fun and enjoy!

Hello,

We are a honeymoon couple Travelling to el calafate on mar 5th. Will it be possible to get a taxi to perito moreno glacier from the the airport at around 9 am (that's when our flight arrives)? I've contacted this one company that has quoted 1350 pesos for the round trip but I think it's expensive based on other posts I've read.

Also we would like to take the 1 hour nautical boat tour to the glacier. Will I be able to book that upon arrival or do I need to do it in advance? And how much should that be? Any help will be very appreciated.

Thanks
