Florida town car? $85 rate
 
Has anyone used them what are your feeling? Anyone used their $85 round trip from airport to hotel and back? Sounds too good to believe. Need advice please.:grouphug::cool1::cheer2::cool1::rotfl:

We have not used them, but doing a quick search on the Transportation board for Florida Town Car I found 5 or 6 threads with very good reviews. I did not see a bad one. But I stopped after the first page of results. You may get better results if you post this over there.

I googled this company...I see a rate of $100. Now...they say that MK resorts are higher due to the fee charged to enter...but the site still says it's $100. It's not a company I'm familiar with.

We have used a private limo service for the past 12 yrs when we visit. Since we are a family of six we do not fit in the town car anymore. We really love the service and now know the owner very well. He's very professional and pleasant.

I call about a month out and let him know our flight and time for arrival and departure. The driver is waiting for us at baggage claim with a sign with our name on it. They help us with luggage if we have to claim it. We wait for a few minutes on the curb while the driver gets the limo. (private car services have a special parking place and are not aloud to park at curb) we go directly to our hotel. On the day we leave, they are always at the front door of our resort waiting for us.

Sometimes I prepay with a credit card. Sometimes we pay at time of service.

This is a splurge for us. We always say we will save the money and do ME but when our date gets closer we cave and reserve the service. I highly recommend it if your budget allows.

I do not know the rules for posting info about non-Disney services.

If I am aloud, I will post the info. If anyone would like to send me a personal message I will be more than happy to send the info back.

Some towncar services automatically add a gratuity to their fee. And then there are some that will charge you if you want to make a grocery stop. So, make sure that you know if there are any hidden fees associated with that excellent rate.

I have not used that particular car service. I know that there are some that we are not supposed to mention and others that are okay to talk about. The one that I used was Tiffany Towncar and they were very good. We used them for transportation airport > our resort > Port Canaveral > airport. They were on time each time and very courteous.

I checked their website and saw $100 round trip at the top, but further down there is a chart which says $110 round trip. I can't say that I know what their price actually is after looking at their website.

Everyone is welcome to discuss non-Disney companies here. We do have companies that we are not allowed to discuss due to the board owner having banned the company for discussion.
If, by some chance, you post about a banned company, you will get a ****** instead of the company name. And I will most likely come along and delete any part of the post that deals with that company.

And if you go all the way to the bottom, you will see that if you want a 30 min grocery stop, you pay an addtl $10. If you arrive between 10pm and 6am...another $10. And that doesn't include any tip either.

Out of curiosity, what causes a company to get banned from the discussion?

What type of car do you get for $85 R/T? A limo? A regular car? I'd totally pay this if we were getting transported in a limo. We're only a party of 3 so not sure if that matters.

Florida town car
 
We were told it would be a Lincoln town car.

chloelovesdisney 03-15-2013 09:08 PM

We've used Tiffany Town Car several times with the grocery shop. Always great service.

MichelleWDWfan 03-15-2013 11:39 PM

A taxi one way from airport to POP is about $60 not including tip.

If you can find $85 round trip for a towncar that's a great deal!

Some of the companies offer a free grocery stop.
