Do you prefer a commercially licensed or non-licensed Taxi?
If you are one of the taxi travellers who are always thinking about the travel time and cost from the starting point and to your destination, I recommend you think a little deeper – who is to cover you if the taxi gets into an accident? Would you hitch a ride from a stranger? What are the credentials of your driver? What if your driver was a previously convicted criminal?
With some of these questions in mind, you would think twice about hitching a ride from a non-licensed Taxi. At the end of the day, is the price worth for either riding on a commercially licensed or non-license Taxi? Let’s take a look at the differences;Commercially Licensed Taxi Company
|The taxi driver knows the city via training materials provided by the company||Pricing may not be as competitive (varies from each taxi company)|
|The driver gets a background check via standard hiring procedure|
|You are covered by insurance|
|Drivers are professionally trained to company meet standards|
|Taxi identification number|
|Regulated by the Taxi Industry to meet professional standards|
|Competitive prices||Drivers are not trained|
|No background check (how well do you know your driver?)|
|You are not covered by insurance|
|You are in a stranger’s vehicle|
|No Taxi identification number|
When comes down to travelling via taxi, I would personally use a commercially licensed taxi as I would feel a safe and secure. So...how would you travel on your next taxi ride?
