Private transfer from Positano to Matera

Or trip from Positano to Matera with Aldo was very pleasant. He was excellent, very helpful and courteous. He went out of his way to help us find our destination drop off point. He even phoned our accomodation host to arrange the correct meeting place and then phoned later to make sure we had got to our accomodation ok. That was a nice touch.

Book it - don't fly or take a train, this is the move

Absolutely exceeded our expectations. We had a driver named Marian from Czech Republic and he made us feel like we were already there on our drive from Poland. He was very nice, a great driver, open to helping us along the way with stops for headache medicine when needed or a stop for local wine, and gave us a great feel for the city we were going to, Prague, along with how the people are since he is native to the country. I'd recommend this company to anyone traveling in need of a way to get between places within a few hours drive. You get a scenic view with low stress, no airline bureaucracy and security checks or worries of delay and a good ride to get some rest.

Best Option for Stress Free Travel

We used Daytrip from Seville to Lagos, and Lagos to Lisbon. Both drivers were great. Punctual, knowledgeable, friendly, and the vehicles were big, clean and comfortable. They even had WiFi. Door to door service on your schedule is so much easier than renting a car, or taking a train. No taxis needed (which is a challenge with 5 people), connecting trains, worry about getting lost or missing a train, parking, etc. We did not schedule any side trips, but still learned a great deal from our drivers. And we saved 4 hours per trip avoiding taxi/bus/train options available to us. Will definitely use again.

Great Service

We used Daytrip to travel from Berlin to Prague with a stop in Potsdam and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our driver, Pavel, was a joy to get to know during the journey. HIs Skoda was comfortable and had plenty of room for our luggage. The stop in Potsdam provided added value to what was essentially a travel day. And the point-to-point service beat the daylights out of making the same trip by train. We are happy we found Daytrip and give it the highest recommendation.

The Daytrip driver advantage

Daytrip driver
  • Local knowledge about the route from Positano to Matera
    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.
