Private taxi cost.

Postby msfcambridge » Sun Apr 02, 2017 9:03 am

Hi- can someone confirm how much does Rachel charges for airport pickup to Red Hook? I thought it was $20 per person plus a charge for bags. We are planning to use her services Tuesday 4/4.

What a great relaxing way to start your vacation!!

The $20 includes the bags. I, like mdcoles1, give her $50 for the two of us.

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

Hi SuefromMA-
With tip we spent $65. Two of us with 2 large bags. She went back roads and gave us a little tour. Base rate was $50.

Oh, that's gone up. On our last trip the base cost was $0 and we gave her $50.

And don't forget that Rachael has a porter friend (Daphene) a the airport.

Well worth the $20 to skip the check in lines..

Sorry folks, that should have been base cost of $40.

Read better with base rate of $0 and a tip of $50. :D

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.
