How it works
The most precious thing on your holiday is time. With Daytrip, a local driver picks you up from your hotel at agreed time and drives you safely to your hotel in another city, saving you from finding cabs, lugging your bags and waiting at train station lounges or security lines. You can even add side-trips to castles & little towns you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise!
"Awesome trip from Vienna to Krakow"
Our driver was Jiri and he took us from Vienna to Krakow with stops in Czech and Slovakia. Despite an early morning pickup, he arrived early and was pleasant through the entire 13 hour journey. When we told him things we were most interested in, he went above and beyond to provide recommendations and arrange stops that fit our interests, including a brewery in Czech. He was knowledgeable about all the sites and truly served as our personal tour guide and helping us make the most of our time in each city.
"Three times a winner"
We used Daytrip from Prague to Vienna, then to Budapest, and then back to Prague. This customized service was door to door, with a knowledgeable guide, and enabled side trips which we took advantage of. The drivers were on time, very personable, and professional. We totally enjoyed the varied cultural conversations with the drivers.
"Budapest to Vienna the easy way"
I was picked from my hotel on time and in a clean and comfortable car. Michael was a careful and skilled driver and I felt safe at all times. I stopped at Gyor and Bratislava and Michael made it easy by walking me through these towns and showing the highlights and a good place to have lunch. I was the dropped off at my hotel in Vienna stress free, without having carry and wheel cases, find the right platform and catch taxi's to and from the railway stations.
"Avoid hassle, backache and save a day!"
Day Trip is special. If you hate carrying luggage and are older it is ideal - stumble in a car at one hotel and arrive at another and with no waiting for trains or agonising over a GPS. Friendly drivers who gives insights into what life is like day to day. And escape the cities for a while and see places on the way
"The hidden gem of transportation through Europe"
I came across the Daytrip company when looking for a quick and affordable way to get from Salzburg to Prague. A train would have taken hours, and flights were expensive and also included long travel time. Daytrip provided a faster way to get to our destination, was affordable and truly provided the local experience.
"Best Way of Transportation in Central Europe"
I highly recommend Daytrip to anyone traveling in Central Europe. Not only do you get a quick ride to your destination, you also get to see more of the country, maximizing your vacation time.
"Vienna to Prague"
I absolutely recommend Daytrip for a more private, customized and convenient way to travel from one city to another visiting chosen places on the way. It's way better than taking the bus and you decide your itinerary according to your interests and available time. Great people and service!
"Amazing service for a great price!"
I researched all of our transportation options (rent a car, train, bus, etc) and Daytrip really was the best option. Not only was the best price once you add everything, but it was also the most convenient. Our driver Michal picked us from the hotel and he was so helpful and nice to talk to.
"Budapest to Prague, a wonderful trip"
We were most impressed with the prompt emails from the company prior to our trip and the follow up emails since our return home.
"Great trip from Prague to Budapest"
My driver Tarik was really friendly and professional and made the journey a highlight of my vacation.
"the absolute best way to see the region "
The drivers were timely, professional and informative and added so much more than taking trains around. I would highly recommend this to anyone travelling in the region.
We travel from Vienna to Salzburg with stop over in Hallstatt and St Gilgen. This allows us to save out time from travelling again from Salzburg to Hallstatt. The whole trip is wonderful and the guide is very accommodating to our request.
"Great alternative for city-to-city transportation"
The drivers were the best. They were courteous, professional, flexible and big plus--able to carry on a conversation in fluent English.
"Great private tour to Cesky Krumlov and Hluboka Castle!"
Very enjoyable day and private tour. For a much more personalized/customized experience away from the cattle hauling motor coach tour groups, I highly recommend a private driver/guide with Daytrip.
"I consider DayTrip one of the 'great finds' in our European travel this year, and I have recommended the company to our friends and, frankly, anyone else that mentions travel in the area."
"A beautiful car and a charming driver. I chose a couple of side trips that were delightful. The whole concept of Daytrip is brilliant!"
"We enjoyed exactly what you advertise on your website, the comfort of travelling door-to-door with a local guide taking us to hard-to-reach destinations along the way!"
"This is a great way to expand your trip versus just taking the train and looking out the window. It was nice to get away from the city."
"We were extremely pleased with the service that Daytrip provided, excellent!! We looked at other options for the trip, bus, train, etc, but they were not convenient, expensive and take much longer. "
"We really enjoyed this service because it was convenient, flexible, and very comfortable. "
"The service was easy to book, punctual, and incredibly relaxing. The door-to-door service made travel extremely convenient and an overall great value"
What is Daytrip?
Daytrip is a platform that connects travelers with local drivers who will transport you from one city to the next. We also give you the opportunity to explore sights/attractions along the way. We drive, you discover.
Will our driver speak English?
All our drivers speak English as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They're happy to discuss local history and culture with you, as well as answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the local language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with natives.
What type of vehicle will be used?
We provide three different types of vehicles depending on the number of travelers in your group. A sedan (comparable to Volkswagen Passat) for groups of up to 3 passengers, a compact MPV (comparable to Volkswagen Touran) for groups of 4 and a van (comparable to Volkswagen Transporter) for bigger groups. Prices fluctuate accordingly and you can see the exact quote on the booking page. We always ensure that the vehicle provided meets your needs in terms of safety, reliability, and comfort. While the exact model may vary, you can expect a late model European car.
Will our luggage fit?
Each passenger is allowed to have one big luggage (29 x 21 x 11 inches) and one small luggage which shouldn’t exceed 22 x 14 x 9 inches. Please, let us know in case you should have an oversized luggage and we will help you upgrade to a bigger car.
Can I book a trip now and add a stop later?
You can do any changes in your itinerary free of charge until 24 hours before departure. If you need to do a last-minute change less than 24 hours before departure, we’ll do our best to accommodate it (additional fees may apply).
Will the driver call me to confirm pick-up?
Your driver will meet you at the agreed time and place and won’t be contacting you before, unless necessary. You’ll receive a reminder with your driver’s name and mobile number a few days before departure in case you need to contact him or her.

Where will our driver pick us up?

I did not find the destination I need to travel to/from on your website, can you still take me there?
In case your desired route is not listed on our website, please shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll do our best to accommodate your custom request - and maybe add it as a regular route!

We always screen our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one/ inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and fully insured for all passengers and belongings.

Can we request a smoke-free car?
We strive to make your trip as comfortable as possible, and the air you breathe in the car is an important part of this. All drivers are required to keep their cars smoke-free, and generally as scent-neutral as possible. Which means no smoke, no dust, and no air fresheners.
