After a recent journey to Rio de Janeiro I would recommend pre-booking your airport to accommodation transport BEFORE arriving at the airport - from past experience tourists get pounced on the minute they leave the main concourse. At least we did!
This time around we found a company online called Rio Airport Transfer, they're a UK registered company so I felt a little more comfortable about booking through them.
We had booked a trip with them and one of their drivers meet us on the main concourse at the airport and delivered us safely to the hotel in air-conditioned comfort.
The service is around £10 more than getting a taxi at the airport, but made me feel a lot more secure. Highly recommended for those who prefer a little less stress and haggling.
