When you're out and about, there are a lot of ways to get around. Some people prefer to use public transportation, while others may feel more comfortable booking a taxi. Here are some of the best ways to book a taxi:
Check with your hotel. Many hotels offer their own taxi service, which can be a convenient option if you don't want to take the bus or metro. Just ask your concierge or receptionist for details.
Use a taxi service. There are a number of taxi services available in most major cities. Just look for one that has good ratings and reviews and be sure to specify the address you're going to.
Use public transit if possible. If using public transportation is your thing, be aware that many cities have free or discounted bus/ metro rides available during certain hours of the day or night. Check out our guide to the best transit options in each city.
Try walking or taking a taxi from a shared ride service. These services can be cheaper and faster than taxis and are safer, too!
Take advantage of public transportation during peak hours or when you're traveling during off-peak times (when trains and buses tend to be less crowded). You may save yourself some money by taking advantage of bus and metro passes that let you travel for free at certain times of the day.
