We are using Rachel, as well in a few weeks. I knew that she charged $50 for two, including luggage. But, I was "assuming" that we should also plan to "add a tip", as well. Again, not sure about the protocol or custom, as this is the first time that we will be using her services. Please comment... Thanks, Sue
Other than Rachel who else is out there? Last time we used Rachel we ended up with a van full of people in our private booking and a LONG detour to the airport. Plus, I know more about her health problems (this was MANY years ago) than a complete stranger should.
We have used Rachel once two years ago. She was a very sweet lady and we enjoyed talking with her but when we got to RedHook there were other people on our flight that arrived at the same time. And we had carryons only and didn't stop for free rum. This last trip we just got on the first taxi and didn't have more than a 1-2 minute wait for it to get full. The ride was fine and interesting with the other conversation going on in the taxi. In the future we will probably just use the regular taxi.
If we ever travel with a large group I would probably make arrangements prior to the trip. When we were getting on our taxi there was a group of 15 trying to fine a ride to Redhook. Not sure how that went.
