How Much Does an Airport Taxi Cost?
- February 17, 2015
Many people in the Greater Toronto Area possess the misconception that hiring an airport taxi is a more expensive solution to meet their airport transportation needs, but that simply isn’t so. When you reserve an airport taxi with Aeroport Taxi and Limousine Service, not only will you arrive at your destination on time and in style, but you won’t need to worry about paying for expensive parking tolls, a pesky ferry charge or added fuel, and our services are often less expensive than taking a regular taxi.
Whether you are traveling with your family, coworkers or by yourself, the last thing you want is to battle your way through heavy traffic, search for parking and possibly even have to ride on a crowded shuttle or wait on a ferry like at Toronto Island Airport. Instead of going through all of that, why not reserve a comfortable airport taxi and actually save money?
The Cost of Other Options Might Surprise You
If you have been considering driving yourself to the airport or using one of the other options that are available, once you evaluate the added stress, inconvenience and total cost of doing so you may decide to reconsider.
The Cost of Driving Yourself to Toronto Island Airport:
At the Toronto Island Airport, for example, you can expect to pay approximately $35 a day to park your vehicle, $11 for the round trip ferry, and whatever your cost would be for fuel. That cost can easily become more than $60 for a single day trip, depending on how far you drive. If you are spending a week away and you take advantage of the weekly rate, when all is said and done you can expect to spend more than $160 to drive yourself to the airport, which is significantly more expensive than the airport taxi cost will be.
Using A Cab To Travel To The Pearson Airport:
Not only can the cab fare alone become atrocious, depending on how far you need to travel to get to the airport, but the added fees and inconvenience will likely alarm you. Many cab companies charge additional fees for things like luggage, and some even charge a per bag fee! By choosing to take a cab to the airport, not only will you pay more than the typical airport taxi cost with Aeroport Taxi and Limousine Service, but you will also need to worry about things like hailing a cab in the first place and experiencing a cramped or uncomfortable ride.
Choosing Public Transit:
While it is true that the public transit is sometimes an affordable option, most individuals will admit that the hassle is just not worth it. Not only do you need to prepare for an early departure in order to leave on the bus’ schedule instead of your own, but you have the added stress (and fatigue) that comes with battling the crowded bus, struggling with luggage and an uncomfortable journey.
With a variety of vehicles available to suit your needs and preferences, and discount flat rates that can make your airport taxi cost start as low as $48, when you consider the other options that are available and their total cost, reserving an airport taxi with Aeroport Taxi and Limousine Service is obviously a much more appealing choice.
