Question PVG private transfers

Can anyone recommend a private car/limo service for meet and transfer from PVG to Hilton Shanghai. Prices seem all over the map. Will be arriving about 3PM. Location of Hilton seems to make Maglev an extra unneccesary step. What would be a reasonable rate?

Thanks,

Alnola

Why private as you were referencing Maglev? Get a cab for less than 200 RMB

if you're thinking maglev....then just get in a taxi- it's easy/safe...just have the address in chinese written out if you can't say it

the hilton is right near jing'an subway station which has an easy connection to maglev but you'll have to walk a few blocks with your bags at the end

Hilton is 希尔顿 (xi er dun, or probably maybe for those that don't read pin yin shee er doon). Bring a card as backup, you'll get there no problem. No need for private car.

For real privacy and comfort, there's a service where you're pick-ed up at the gate, taken through priority immigration (special lane), assisted with luggage pick-up, and then driven to destination downtown. I believe all-in for around 800. Pricey but luxurious and a great way to beat the lines if arriving at T2 during rush hour. PM me if you need the contact.
Note: Given the above is available, I would still suggest cabbing it.

My driver doesn't believe in lanes. As long as the car fits, anything goes.

Immigration special lane
Significant time savings if arriving on one of the European flights at T2 during morning rush hour, given you have no checked luggage.
