Getting there

Tallinn Airport is modern and small and therefore easily manageable by a foreign visitor. Two currency exchange offices (Monex and Eesti Krediidipank) as well as two ATMs (Hansapank and SEB Eesti √úhispank) are at your disposal in the arrivals hall. The local currency is kroon and is tied to the euro by the official exchange rate 15.65 kroons (EEK) to 1 euro (EUR). The commercial exchange rate may be as low as 14.5 kroons to 1 euro at the airport and even lower in hotels.

The airport is connected to the city centre by taxis and public buses. Due to the complex route to the hotels by public transportation you are advised to use a taxi.

A taxi from the airport should cost roughly 70-90 EEK. You are advised to use only licensed taxis with logos and price lists clearly visible on the taxi. The safest choices are white cars operated by Tulika Takso and bright or dark cars operated by Linnatakso. Both companies allow you to pay by credit card, however, you should inform the driver in advance of your preferred method of payment.
