This means you won't have to worry about the taxi meter running which, sometimes with the public taxis, can increase significantly depending on the traffic and the time of day. Your driver, who will have a proper licence and years of experience, will only take the shortest route and at the time of making your booking, you can also choose the type of vehicle you require from those that are available and which best suit your requirements. In addition to this, if your flight is delayed, you don't have to pay any additional charges, you will just need to advise the emergency number that you have been given of the revised flight arrival time.
