Does this mean my hotel in Salzburg will pay for a taxi?

When confirming a hotel reservation in Salzburg, the hotel where I'm staying (Elefant) included the following tag-line at the very bottom of the e-mail: "Gratis Messe-Taxi für unsere Gäste, Voucher an der Reception." Based on my one semester of high school German, I'm surmising this might mean something to the effect that the hotel reception desk has vouchers for free taxis? Does anyone have any idea how this works? I will be arriving in Salzburg by train -- do I just take a taxi to the hotel and then ask reception to reimburse me, or give a voucher to the driver or something? Thanks in advance.

Translated- "Free Exhibition Center Taxi for our guests, a voucher in Reception."
I believe the hotel is offering a free transfer to the Exhibition Center only. To use the offer, you first obtain a voucher at the reception and then give it to your taxi driver for the fare to the " Messe"( Exhibition or Fair)
Sorry, but the taxi fare would only be a few euros from the station.

Thank you so much! I had a feeling there was something I was missing in the translation...sometimes a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
