The use of a car service with driver can be a valid alternative if, for example, during the day you have to move frequently with the need to have quickly available the means of transport. Limousines are also an alternative to taxis for airport connections. The panorama of cars includes luxury sedans, stretch limo, long sedans that can carry up to ten passengers, but also SUVs and elegant minibuses.
In case of booking, check for any penalties in case of cancellation and insurance coverage for passengers.
