Why You Should Prefer Using Taxi Services to Hired Cars


Are you visiting a new city? Do you need reliable transport means to move around? In this case, you have the option of hiring a car during your stay or using a taxi. Below are various reasons why you should use taxis instead of hiring cars.

Unnecessary expenses

You can assume that hiring a car will enable you to become more flexible during your stay. However, this flexibility comes at a cost. There are various expenses you will have to pay apart from the cost of hiring the vehicle. Some of these include parking fees, fuel throughout your travels and insurance. In case the car breaks down, there is a percentage of the repair costs that you will also be expected to pay. These additional expenses are not applicable if you decide to use a taxi. You will only be required to pay for each trip that you make. This is much cheaper than having to hire a car which you will be accruing costs even when you are in meetings or during the night.


What should you do if you get lost in a new city? Such questions will never cross your mind if you decide to use a taxi. Taxi drivers have adequate knowledge of the city and will take you anywhere you want to go. This can be challenging if you hire a car and you are dependent on a navigation system to direct you around the city. You can easily end up getting lost or driving on the wrong side of the road. These inconveniences can be avoided by opting to use a taxi every time you need to move around. 

Easily replaceable

If the hired car breaks down, the process of getting a replacement vehicle can take several hours, depending on your location. You will have to communicate with the charter company who will initiate the process of having a replacement delivered to you. The process of getting an alternative is easier when you are using taxis. You only have to pay the bill up to that point, get out and hail another taxi. This ensures that you are in time for your meetings or any other commitments that you might be having. 

Always ensure that you use taxis from experienced and established firms. Such companies have vehicles that are in good condition and their drivers are properly trained. All these factors ensure you are at ease and enjoy your trip.

Cool coach drivers

I really like doing all sorts of little things to make my passengers coach trips just that little bit more comfortable. I have DVDs playing during the day and keep the coach nice and cool at night to help people sleep on those long trips. We make lots of trips to stop and stretch and also take some great photos. Australia can seem stark when you are staring out the coach window but there are some really beautiful spots along my routes that make for some beautiful shots. I meet funny people and have great adventures, which I hope you'll like reading about.
