What are some differences between a taxi and limousine service in Toronto area?

This article showcases some of the essential differences and benefits by taking a limo versus a taxi.

We all know the differences in appearance between a yellow cab with checkered markings versus a stretch limo in white. But we are not comparing apples to apples, since there are many different types of limo services offered in Toronto, make sure you understand the full benefit of a limo service before you call your next taxi. Many limo companies today offer their customers “airport” runs or services, they usually have late model Lincoln Towncars, or Chrysler 300s for these purposes. The vehicles used in these services are usually factory stock models always in black, and they are usually top of the line models include leather interior. These so called “airport” taxis are fully loaded include leather, heated seats, something similar to what their bigger cousins offer, but in the standard four door, 5 passenger capacity. These airport limos are far more luxurious compare to your standard taxi cabs, therefore many people automatically assume they will be more expensive. But this is not necessarily true, the airport limos are purchased for the purpose of picking up and dropping off customers frequently, they are a lot cheaper in price compare to the your regular limos. As matter of fact many airport limos are cheaper than your standard taxi rate in Toronto.

If you take a trip from downtown Toronto just to Scarborough area, your one trip fair should be $40 to $50, making it round trip of $80 to $100. If you call your limo company ahead of time to book the airport limo package for the weekend, your round trip will be $60 packaged together cheaper than your standard taxi. Not to mention a limo driver will be willing to wait for you up to an hour, versus your taxi driver will cost you for the wait time. If you are a smoker, you can request that service with your Limo company, but definitely not Toronto taxi services. Your limo driver is on call, and he will be able to have the car outside waiting for you. While this kind of service from Toronto taxi is not possible without costing you significantly higher amount of money.

Let’s put all this in perspective once for all, on one hand you can have a yellow cab pick you up that will cost you more in money to travel without the ability to smoke inside the cab, or to have the driver wait for you at your destination. On the other hand you can book an airport limo to pick you up and drop you off at your front door for less. For you party animals out there an airport limo service is the next best thing to driving your own car. So the next time you are thinking of a night out, or to a special function call your limo company first before hailing a cab.
