Taxi or driver from Nice airport to Monaco

We are three adults and one teenager flying into Nice. We need either a taxi cab or a driver to take us to our hotel in Monaco. Does anyone know how much either might cost?

Have you asked your hotel what arrangements they offer?

Just sent them an e-mail. Still would be interested in more feedback for others.

here are some options that appeared in a UK newspaper recently:

From Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport (00 33 489 88 98 28; nice.aeroport.fr) to Monaco, there are five options.

While not as impressive as swishing in by yacht, arriving by helicopter has more cachet than coming on the bus. Both Heli Air Monaco (00 377 92 05 00 50; heliairmonaco.com) and Azur Hélico (azurhelico.com) have the regular, seven-minute flight from around €130 one way. Youngsters from 2-12 years and the over-65s may qualify for cheaper fares. If you can afford €19 a minute, don’t hesitate, especially as there will be a free onward shuttle bus to your hotel.

For a taxi (00 33 493 13 78 78), expect to pay €69-€74, by day, €79-€90 between 7pm and 7am. Prices vary according to traffic conditions. A fourth person, and luggage, will add slightly to the bill.

If you prefer the train, take the No 99 shuttle bus from the airport to Nice-Ville station (€6), then jump on the TER service to Monaco. The rail trip takes 21 minutes and costs €3.80.

The fourth option is the bus. Take the 110 Express service from either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 at the airport. It will get you to Monaco in around 45 minutes for €20 one way, €30 return. Prices for under-26 year olds are €15 and €28 respectively. Buy tickets at the Bureau-des-Bus in Terminal 1.

Finally, if travelling alone, with little luggage, consider a motorcycle taxi. Riviera Express (00 33 6 13 22 91 68; riviera-express.net) will speed you by Goldwing to Monaco for around €75.
