6 Things To Remember When You Hire An Outstation Taxi

by Paripsa Pandya

While travelling, we all love driving on some of the most beautiful roads a destination has to offer. But often, groups end up fighting over who will be driving the car. Moreover, self-drive trips come with their own set of responsibilities and who wants to be burdened while travelling? Hence, it is more convenient to hire a taxi.

When it comes to weekend getaways or short trips of 3-4 days, hiring an outstation taxi comes in extremely handy, especially if you plan on moving a lot, exploring more places and if public transport is not available. However, when you hire a taxi for an outstation trip, there are several things you must keep in mind.

Here are 6 things to remember when you book an outstation trip:

1. The correct type of car based on the number of people

Road trips are no fun if the journey is uncomfortable. Hence you need to ensure that the car is big enough for your group. At the same time, you must ensure that you don’t end up booking a large car for 2-3 people. Those with a good amount of luggage should avoid hatchbacks and go for bigger cars. Choosing between a petrol/diesel variant is also incredibly important.

2. The pricing must match your budget

We all love it when we get to enjoy a good trip within our budget and paying extra is always a mood-spoiler. When you hire a taxi, you must go through the pricing policy and what all is included in it. Several companies often include the driver’s allowance as part of the price whereas some companies consider that as an added cost. It is important to have an estimate of the kind of money you will be paying for the taxi.

3. Does the company offer one-way trips?

A lot of companies only offer round trips,especially to smaller towns and lesser visited places. This means that you end up paying more for a round trip when you just wanted to be dropped at your destination. You must, thus pick a car rental service that offers you one-way drops too. Savaari, one of the taxi companies, offers services in more than 6500 destinations, ensuring that you get dropped wherever you want. You can avail a discount of INR300 on their services, on a minimum purchase of INR5000. Just use the code ‘SCOUT300’ and avail the discount here.

4. Airport pick-ups

A lot of times, we end up wasting time in a new destination by driving from the airport to the center of the city and then we hire a taxi to go to another city. It is thus, much more convenient to book a taxi that picks you up from the airport itself. This way, you save on time and don’t have to pay an exorbitant amount for airport transfers to the city. So pick the right car rental service!

5. Corporate travel packages

If you’re an entrepreneur who faces trouble when you have to constantly book cabs for your employees while travelling, you must look for car rentals that provide corporate packages. Go for a service that offers you end-to-end transportation for your employees at great rates. Always try to opt for a car rental that makes it for convenient for you and your employees.

6. Easy customer service

There’s nothing more annoying than when someone just won’t pick up your call. If you’re on a road trip and face an issue, the need of the hour is to be able to speak to someone who can help you out. Hence, it is imperative that you hire a taxi with a company that provides round the clock assistance for all your queries.

Travelling is supposed to relieve you of all your stresses and make you feel at ease. A long, satisfying road trip is the best way to unwind and live in the moment. So, rent a car and travel comfortably to your destination.

Very informative article Paripsa. Definitely gonna keep in the mind and implement them. I want add my thoughts that Renting Car are be so beneficial for the people who needs car sometimes and no effort for maintenance needed. I want to add my thoughts every Car Rental company should have an app as these are so beneficial for both customers and company too as the app can provide them so many features like Renting different types of Cars , managing fuel consumption, Discounts, Payment mode, Blogs , customer service , asset tracking etc. and much more. And the combination of website and app can be powerful in growing the business.
