Yes, you can pay by card in each and every stand located at the airport.

Transfer in minibus from your hotel to airport is $150ARS/person, taxi transfer is $350ARS for up to 4 people.

We opted for taxi transfer, only $50ARS more (for the two of us) than the minibus and it takes about 20 min as opposed to 30 to 40min, depending on the number of stops the minibus will make to collect all passengers.

This info is based on prices as of Feb 1st.

If I may I am now in El Calafate, so 170 Pesos one way with the Shuttle and 540 Pesos one way with Taxi, no matter how many people for the Taxi. I took the shuttle if you are not in a hurry. Enjoy El Calafate

Thats is correct....a share bus one way cost $ 180 per person and a round trip ticket $ 280.

If you take a taxi one way you pay $ 540 or round trip taxi $ 890.

Enjoy El Calafate

I took a taxi to the airport just over a week ago and the cost was 400 peso, total rip off when you consider shuttle from El Chalten to your hotel in El Calafate is 500 peso with Las Lengas.

Regrettably the tourist here in El Calafate are regarded as fair game for the rip off merchants. The local tourist authority need to take control, I for one would NEVER spend another day in this town.

My husband and I will arrive El Calafate in Feb 2019.

How do I book a return trip by bus in advance?
