We will be arriving at Hannover Airport next month and would like to know the cost of a taxi to take us to Oldenburg (OLDB). We will also need the return journey by taxi to the airport 6 days later. We would normally hire a car for this journey but as we will not need to use it at any other time during our stay in Oldenburg, we are wondering if a return taxi fare would be cheaper?
That's more than 150 km each way and a taxi will cost a fortune. Why don't you take the train? I had a quick look and for August there are still some specials available for 29 Euro a person each way.
Look at www.bahn.de to find out more.
If it is okay for you to only use reginal trains, you could also opt for the Niedersachsen-Ticket.
Some restrictions apply, however, so perhaps check the conditions here:
under "Bremen, Niedersachsen (Lower-Saxony)"
The simplest train route seems to be airport to main station (Hauptbahnhof) then a direct train to Oldenburg. Bahn.de will let you see the details.
There good train connections to Oldenburg.
Start: Hannover Flughafen
On a Niedersachsen-Ticket only EUR 25 for 2 persons. Select as means of transport "only local transport" for this.
If you use a taxi or a transfer company you may be able to negotiate the price. This is beyond the area the taxi tariff is binding. Don't think you'll get a much better quote for a return trip. The car/driver will have to return empty to the start point on both days.
