Daytrip is one of a kind! Absolute BEST experience

Daytrip is amazing! We had booked a trip from Durres, Albania to Croatia and due to Covid 19 and some border regulations we were unable to go directly. BUT, Daytrip took it upon themselves to offer options and transfers so that we were able to get where we were going. Daniel was the person that emailed us with all of the options and he was AMAZING. He truly offered the best customer service I had ever come across. He was able to answer all of my questions and helped me with everything from the beginning to even after our completed journey. He is the reason I will be booking all trips through Daytrip from here on out. Thank you so much! Both of our drivers were extremely kind and knowledgeable. If anyone is looking to book, choose daytrip. You will not be disappointed!

Private Car + Optional Stops to Tour Local Areas - Highly Recommended

1st time thinking about this new way of traveling, especially when moving cities 1-way. It's worth it!! You can book a professional, on-time service with customized local spots to tour on the way (you see & choose options with small add-on prices before completing your booking!). All is confirmed quickly and effortlessly to ensure a worry-free time. Driver is professional, friendly, safe and helpful with luggage. On 1-trip, we had an unexpected snow storm which was skillfully maneuvered without much delay, fuss or nervousness. Also, the company cares about their drivers with this email response: "Our drivers are our biggest assets, and we are delighted to hear that they offer more than what is expected."

Private car Albania to Macedonia to Kosovo

I used Daytrip twice so far, once was a trip from Tirana, Albania to Lake Ohrid, North Macedonia with Elton and the other was a trip from Skopje, North Macedonia to Prizren, Kosovo. I was really happy with both of my drivers, they met me at the hotel, helped me with my luggage, they drive newer, nice cars and overall it's a really nice alternative to a bus to get from one country to another. I was looking at my options and for some places you can do it with a bus or maybe a combination of buses but it will likely take you a lot longer and is a lot less comfortable. The drivers spoke excellent english, and I was able to talk to them about their countries and the region. There were options for stops along the way at various sights of interest, and although I didn't do them this time around I will definitely look into them on any future trips. My driver also stopped along the way to take my photo at some points that were just off the highway which was a nice bonus. The price is very reasonable as well. Will definitely explore Daytrip on future trips.

Excellent personalised service

My partner and I travelled from Vienna to Budapest via Bratislava and Gyor in February 2020 with Ladsislav who had stepped in at the last minute for another driver and I've been meaning to leave this review ever since. It was a really good way to travel between cities and Ladislav was brilliant, really personable and with great knowledge of the route and the places we visited which made the trip. We even decided against a planned local tour in Bratislava as Ladislav was able to give us a personalised version. Would definitely recommend and would look to use Daytrip again, if we're ever able to travel freely again that is!

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Guadulajara to Puerto Vallarta
    Including available sights
  • English speaking

    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, and 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.

  • Safety first!

    We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
