Spain Life Exclusive had the pleasure of speaking to Artur, from Artman Transfers, who told us all about his car transfer service, Artur says “Artman Transfers is not a taxi service, it’s something quite different”.
Founded in 2019, Artman Transfers is a private car service based in Altea on the Costa Blanca. This year has been a tough one for many businesses but Artman Transfers have been growing steadily and providing a top-notch, safe service for those who can’t avoid travelling in these difficult times. With Artman you can travel safely from door to door without having to expose yourself to public transport, absolutely essential in this day and age, especially if you’re in an at risk category.
All covid protocols are firmly in place for the company, the cars are deep cleaned after each journey and drivers are tested regularly to give you peace of mind about travelling with them. Artur tells us that his transfer service includes wifi in all cars, they provide you with fresh drinks and it’s a 24 hour service and door to door, it’s not often you get that with a standard taxi. The company also offers a Premium Card deal where you get 100kms of free trips when you have used the transfer service 10 times, a great offer we think!
Private taxi licences are not cheap in Spain, this is a serious business, and Artman Transfers are fully legal and licensed. Each driver speaks multiple languages, as do the booking staff, so you can be pretty sure that your language will be spoken at each stage of your transfer. Languages include English, Spanish, Russian, German, Armenian, Norwegian, Danish and Swedish.
Based in Altea this transfer service not only provides local and airport trips, they also do long distance journeys and will take you anywhere in Europe. Pricing is per kilometre for longer trips and a price will be established before your journey. This means that if you’re being picked up from the airport you can stop at the shops on the way to your home or hotel for supplies and not worry that the meter is still ticking and costing you more money. Payment can be made online in advance via all the usual methods, including Paypal. You can also pay on the day in the car, either with cash or card.
Artman cars are always black only, there’s no branding so no way to know you’re not in a private car, making your journey a little more special. The cars are brand new and can take up to 4 passengers but Artman also work with other companies to provide 8 seater cars when needed. Each journey involves a meet and greet, so if you’re being picked up from the airport for example, you will be met inside, escorted to the car and then taken to the door of your hotel or home, with help with your luggage if needed.
For extra peace of mind the cost of Artman Transfers is negotiable, if you don’t have quite enough for your set journey you can make an offer and the driver will use his discretion. We think this is a great service for women who may be travelling alone and not have quite enough cash on them to get home, or for people travelling with children. Examples of journey prices would be from Altea to Alicante airport is only 60€ which for up to 4 people works out cheaper than a bus. Additionally it’s quicker, more comfortable and they provide a door-to-door service so no hanging about in bus or train stations.
This is a really wonderful service, if you live or holiday on the Costa Blanca you should get in touch with Artman Transfers when you need to make that extra-special trip, need a cheaper-than-normal-taxi transfer, or even need to travel across Europe, for example if the ports and airports were to close again. Make a note of their contact details, add their number to your phones and get in touch with them when you need to make those important journeys.
