When hiring an airport shuttle service there are a number of things you need to know about these services. That being said it is always good to some research about shuttle services in the city you are planning on visiting. Generally speaking there are two types of airport shuttle services i.e. multi-ride and share-ride. Intercity taxi in Israel

What option is best for you?

Share-ride is a lot cheaper but will only pick you and a few other people up from the airport and drop you off at the hotel. The pickup time is based mainly on your flight's itinerary and not the company's schedule. The beauty of this service is that you are not put in the holding area. With a multi-ride service you can go from the airport to multiple locations like to the hotel to drop off your baggage and then from there to an amusement park, business district etc. When choosing the multi-ride option you will have to book your shuttle in advance. Some services may not offer a multi-ride option so make sure that you confirm this with the company prior to proceeding.

When does the time start?

Most airport shuttle services will start billing you from the starting point i.e. the point at which you get into the shuttle. Many services use computer software to track your flight so that they are on time when you arrive. This also helps the shuttle service mange things if your flight is running late. However, some services may start billing you from the time you provided as you ETA. If you are not sure how you will be billed then call up the service or visit their website to find out about it. online taxi service

Does the airport shuttle service provide door to door service?

Most airport shuttle services don't just pick you up from the airport. These services also pick you up from your hotel, office or any other place you might be at. They will either pick you up or a group of people depending on what you specified when you booked the service. However, you will need to choose a car based on your requirements i.e., a bus, limousine or sedan. That being said some services charge extra for this so make sure that you double check the rates being offered prior to proceeding.

Cancellation policy

You should always be aware of the airport shuttle's cancellation policy. Generally, if you call to cancel 2 hours prior to the pickup time you will not be charged full fare. However, if you call to cancel after your pickup time or during your pickup time you will have to pay in full. Many services allow you to edit your schedule ahead of time via their website. taxi fare in israel
