Factors to Consider When You Book a Taxi for Airport
- March 17, 2020
When you are choosing your means of transportation from or to the airport, there are a few things to keep in mind. Taking them into consideration may make all the difference between an ordeal and a comfortable, low-cost ride.
Among your options is public transit, but let’s be realistic… it isn’t realistic. With all the luggage and running a tight schedule to make the flight, it is simply out of the question. Then there is “ride-sharing”. There are a few options there and they seem attractive and convenient, but only at first. That is until you consider things like reliability, safety and the final cost of the ride.
Let’s examine those considerations and see if you agree with us that taking an airport cab with our Aeroport Taxi & Limousine Service is actually, and by far, your best solution.
Airport Cab Costs
While the price is not necessarily the most important factor when making this decision, it is still important. The cost of a “ride-sharing” option like Uber and Lyft will often depend on demand and can increase to two or three times more during rush hours. If your flight is departing or arriving during peak hours, you are in for a considerably higher rate.
Our more traditional Aeroport Taxi & Limousine Service charge flat rates and won’t spring a last moment surprise on you regardless of traffic.
Quality and Reliability of Service
Everybody knows that “ride-sharing” companies employ anyone with a clean record and decent vehicle. That in and of itself is suboptimal when doing this kind of work. A person working extra hours, underslept and exhausted, with no additional training for this kind of job is risky business and bad enough.
What many users are not aware of, however, is that in addition to all this, “ride-sharing” drivers are not covered by the same extensive insurance every Airport cab carries. When an accident happens, which is more likely in an Uber than a taxi, to begin with, you may find yourself inadequately covered and will have to take up legal arms with the poor driver who will be as surprised by this as you are.
Here at Aeroport Taxi & Limousine Service, every driver is an employee of the company and we take direct responsibility for their conduct at all times.
As you can see, taking a proper cab to or from the airport is the better choice both in the short-term and in the longer term as well. And you can book your taxi or limo ride with us in advance too! Making sure you are there with time to spare to browse the duty-free before the plane.
