E1 Tram Transfers in Nowa Chuta - Krakow

How to Kill your Early Arrival - Late Check-in in Krakow

Usually, apartments and even hotels are giving rooms around 15:00. It happens that our flight will arrive around 10:00 at the airport and we have a gap of at least 4 hours. Not only this, but we have also our luggage to deal with.

Krakow Arrival: Solve the Early Arrival Late Check-In

When dealing with the early arrival at the Krakow airport, and you have a late check-in, there are 3 problems to solve:

(a) Airport transfer to your hotel or apartment, (b) Luggage Handling until you actually get your room, and (c) What to do during the waiting time. Right?

Let's see some great ideas on what you can do in order to overcome the above-mentioned problems. An option for every pocket: Cheapest Way -- Hybrid Solution -- Solve it Like a VIP.

Krakow Airport Transfers - Kill an Early Arrival

A. Cheapest Way

Transfer from Krakow Airport to City Center: Get a train (KML - it takes 20-45 minutes) or a bus (208 - from Dworzec Głowny w Schód) from the airport and arrive at Krakow's central station (Kraków Główny). This will cost you only €1 per person.

Drop your luggage safely at the Luggage Storage Kraków Train and Bus Station (you need to book this online in advance). It cost 20 PLN per bag / per day and you are ready to see the city, go for a coffee or breakfast.

Finally, go pick up your luggage and go to your hotel or apartment for check-in. You might replace the luggage storage service with a drop-off at your hotel or apartment if this is allowed and is convenient. Most places might allow it. Just check it in advance.

Above we have solved all the problems, but it might be very tiring following the above schedule, especially if you have children with you. Let's see an improved solution below.

B. Hybrid Solution

Replace the train or bus with a taxi service and make your transfer from the Krakow Airport to your hotel or to the Luggage Storage Kraków Train and Bus Station more convenient and less tiring.

We highly recommend the Krakow Private Airport Transfer. Skip the lines for taxis on arrival at Krakow Airport, and enjoy the safest, most economical, and convenient way of traveling to the city center. It is €19,55 for 1-3 people and €26,13 for 4-7 people. Prices may change.

After dropping your luggage, do the same as mentioned earlier in option A. It is definitely a more convenient option than the one described above, but still, there will be a lot of walking till you finally arrive at your hotel or apartment in Krakow.

Let us now see the most convenient option to go. Solve it like a VIP and pay a normal price.
