The other option is a regular Taxi from Treviso Airport to Venice. It costs around € 100, - from Treviso. I always book the taxi with the best price on Cheaptaxis. It's cheaper! And you have a pre-agreed price.

If you don’t book online, make sure you agree a price before you get in the cab! Taxis are available at the arrivals. Be careful, because it is important to agree on the fare before you get in the taxi. One time I just got in.. My fare was unexpectedly high,, of course I was angry, but he didn’t change his mind… mmmm.. So.. Be careful…

The pricey option is to rent a car. You can easily hire a car from Venice Airport. Hertz, Avis and Europcar are represented. It is better to make a car reservation before you will arrive.  To drive from Treviso Airport to Venice is about 45 minutes. You can drop-off the rental car in Venice. Take a look at my page about car rentals in Venice >

What I did my first time at Treviso Airport? Most tourists will take this bus service from airport to Venice. But I took a more adventurous way. I took a train from Treviso to Venice railway station Santa Lucia. Train to Venice.

Therefore take the local bus (no 6) to the Treviso Railway station. Though this route takes 15 minutes longer, I took the train. I didn’t want to sit all sweaty and bumpy in the bus. I loved the train!!! See the timetable of bus no. 6

Don’t make mistakes many train visitors do,,,they take off at the wrong Station “Venezia Mestre”. Wait until the train has crossed the lagoon and arrives at “Venezia Santa Lucia” and get out!!! Venice begins! From here there will be a water bus service who will drop you off near your Venice hotel. Total cost to arrive from Treviso airport to Venice? About € 15, - per person.
