is advisable and safer to book your taxi transfer to your accommodation in
advance, rather than having to hail a taxi, when you arrive at the airport.
advisable for several reasons:
If you pre-book a taxi you
will know exactly “how much it will cost”. If the cost of the taxi transfer is
included in your accommodation booking, you only need to think about a small or
large tip, depending how generous you feel.
The taxi driver will wait
for you even if you are delayed. Small delays normally wouldn’t increase the
fare, but for delays of more than an hour it will.
The taxi driver will know
where to take you, since he would have been given instructions and carry a sign
with your name and destination. You will not need to explain or give directions.
If you know you have lots
of luggage, you can order a taxi with a roof rack. This will save you time at
the airport having to look for a taxi that can handle your luggage.
Pre-booking a taxi, means
you will be getting a taxi driver from the locality where you will be staying,
therefore you help keep in business someone who during the winter is having a
hard time making a living, due to the lack of tourist trade.
