Do you get a free taxi service? No, definitely not. Booking or hiring a taxi means you are entitled to pay certain amount depending upon the distance of your ride.
Normally, it is our experience that beneficiaries do not care about booking a taxi. They just hire a taxi at the time of need, get in the designated destination, pay the fare and proceed. It is a kind of habitual affair which most of the service beneficiaries repetitively do.
Please do not take it other way round. I am not linking the matter with good or bad habit. But one thing that I am interested to reveal is that your habit is unknowingly forcing you to spend more on fare. And you do not have to do anything special to save—just be proactive and keep on riding. How? Well, here we go…..
The key to best taxi deal is pre-booking. But, simply booking a taxi does not offer you with huge discount. No, it is not like that. But, it gives you tentative idea regarding the fare of a taxi to reach point A from point B.
Once you are prepared to book a taxi, you go through various websites of many taxi service providers. It is a kind of research that will help you in making comparison regarding the fare from point A to point B. The comparison will surely let you know that you have been paying more than what the actual rate was.
Moreover, extensive research on the matter will give you a bargaining power with any taxi service provider because you are well aware about approximate fare by now. Relying on this general idea, contact the service providers near your locality and select the one who offers least price. This is one of the main advantages of pre-booking.
In addition, some taxi service providers offer special discount to online booking customers. This is much beneficial for the commuter like you as it lowers the cost of your fare and increases the saving. Similarly, some cab companies also provide coupon to such clients who book the taxi couple of days earlier. And if you are lucky, then the scheme will be a cherry at the top.
Furthermore, price is the main factor for booking a taxi service but it is not the one and only factor to consider. Some companies charge very little in the beginning and later they stick you a bill with additional charges under different title. Be aware of such companies and ask them if there is anything hidden with the quoted price before booking process. If they bit about the bush and could not deliver satisfying answer of your question, then discard them immediately from your selection list.
Also consider customers’ review before booking a taxi with concerned company. Their comments will be helpful in your decision making process. Never ignore this aspect.
Hence, as a responsible taxi service provider—Chet’s Airport and Taxi Service asks its clients and potential clients to book the taxi earlier and save the money.
