only used one so far. www.happylimo.com They were reliable and professional. Competetive pricing and clean cars. Upgraded from a stretch to a stretch Navigator on the return trip to the airport. They did a great job. www.mousesavers.com has a discount code for them as well.

Another HL fan here! We've used them twice to go to PC and both times they upgraded us from a stretch to a huge Navigator or Excursion, complete with large tv's, dvd player, etc.

The few times I used a car service, I used ***********. They were prompt, courteous, had a clean car, a polite driver, helped with our bags and did a grocery stop. They were highly recommended by our travel agent and as usual she did a great job.

ETA - apparently, this website doesn't like my favorite car service as the ************* won't let me post the name.

We've used Tiffany Town Car twice and were very happy with them. We requested car seats for our kids both times and they were very clean, one looked brand new and in good working condition. The drivers were always friendly and prompt and they allow a grocery store stop as well.

We have used Fl Tours the last 3 times we were at the world. They were clean, friendly and professional, but most important...they were always on time.

I was very happy with Tiffany last year, even mid-Fay, they were reliable, flexible, and courteous.

We had a good experience with Tiffany in Dec 08 -they were prompt, courteous and the car was clean - they provided a booster seat for my son and stopped at Publix so we could pick up snacks.

I have also heard good things about happylimo and their prices are the same as tiffany (if you use the mousesaver coupon). However, happylimo surcharges you $5 each way for a car seat, while tiffany provides the booster for no charge.

I have personally used Tiffany, and FL Tours, both with good success. Neither was perfect, but nothing that would make me not use them again.
I have heard good things about Happy and Southern Elegance.

******transportation was fabulous , but I have no other experience to compare to.

eta: I had to go search on why this company name is banned. Best I can tell, it was either a) excessive spamming via customers at the request of the company, or b) disagreements/postings between various independent car service owners. I apologize for not being aware that their company was banned here.

Regardless, I just used this company for the first time in June 2009 and their SERVICE was spotless (Roger was our driver), and I would be inclined to use them again unless I see something more to convince me otherwise.

I will not go into details here, but when a company is banned here, it has been with good reason.

I can fully appreciate this, but is there somewhere we can go (not necessarily on these boards) to see the names of these companies? I've been watching this thread to see who would be good to use when we go on DCL in Oct & want to make sure that I stay away from the "bad" ones.

I'll just have to make sure that I stick w/ the ones who's names show up in this thread!!
