Long-distance taxi and private transfers across the European Union, France, Switzerland and The United Kingdom

What are our long-distance taxi and private transfers?

Our long-distance personal passenger transportation services can be also referred to as long distance private car service or private driver long distance service.

Whatever you want to call it, the essence is that our professional driver will pick you up at any address, airport, train station, or seaport in one country of the European Union and drive you to any other address in the other country in the EU.

When booking a ride from point A to point B, you can adapt your itinerary as you wish by adding the deviations and stops and specifying the duration of each stop. At the end of the booking process, you will see the all-inclusive price, that including all deviations from the itinerary for stops and waiting time at stops.

Of course, short stops for quick snacks and restrooms are for free and you don't have to specify them during the booking process.

You always know the price in advance. Our prices are fixed and usually tend to be much cheaper than regular taxis. We provide a Flat rate and All-inclusive price for all our long-distance taxi and private transfers services.

OUR FARES AND PRICES

How we calculate the total price of our long-distance taxis and transfers?

The main principle is this: the longer the distance, the lower the price per mile/kilometer. Our standard fare calculation is based on the Google Maps fastest route between your pick-up and drop-off points. How distance is calculated? In case of the one-way trip, the distance between the drop-off point and our base in central Paris is also included in the total distance. In case of the same-day return, you will pay only one-way fare plus a waiting charge, if the waiting time is more than 15 minutes.

You can see the exact all-inclusive price you will pay for sedan or van taxi-transfer in our price computing and booking form. If you want to know the price for a coach (bus) transfer please contact us by contact form.

1 kilometer = 0.6214 mile

1 mile = 1.609 kilometer

The minimum distance is 30 km / 19 mi. if less you will pay a fixed price.

We offer three types of fares:

One way - our standard fare per km/mi.

Same day return - You will pay only one-way fare plus a waiting charge for every quarter of an hour, so your return trip is free. This is the cheapest option if you're traveling to and from the same destination on the same day. Return drop-off address must be in the Paris region (100 km/ 62 mi. around Paris).

Any other day return - multiply the one-way price by two. 

Waiting fee charge:

If you need a waiting or a multi-stop taxi or transfer, for example, you go to one city or address where we wait for you and then continue to the next address or city, we will add a waiting charge to your fare. Our waiting charge is indicated per hour, but you will pay for every quarter of an hour that you consumed. Our waiting charges are as follows: sedan/SW: €40 per hour; van: €50 per hour. For coach/bus please do contact us. We do not charge for short stops not exceeding 15 minutes.

Trips from/to the Great Britain

For trips from/to Great Britain (UK), a ticket for Eurotunnel is not included to the price that you see in our instant quotation and booking form. The price for trips from/to the UK is composed of a fixed part for our transportation service and a variable part for the Eurotunnel ticket. We take prepayment equal to the price of the Eurotunnel fare on the day of the trip. You can see the price of Eurotunnel tickets here.

What is the difference between different kinds of private-individual long distance transportation services?

Long-distance taxi VS long distance private transfer?

No difference, in both cases you pay on per kilometer/mile basis for the transfer from point A to point B and possibly for the waiting time at stops if you requested stops in the booking form. (Short stops for quick snacks and restrooms are always for free for any kind of services and you don't have to specify them during the booking process).

Long-distance taxi VS private driver for long distance?

- For Long-distance taxi, you pay on per kilometer/mile basis and possibly for waiting time if you have requested some stops and deviations on the way, regardless of the duration of the transfer (for example for traffic reasons) you pay a fixed price for the distance between two points.

You must be as precise as possible when indicating the addresses for pick-up, drop-off and deviations, and the duration for stops in our booking form.

- As for private driver for long distance, you pay on per hour basis for driving and waiting time on stops, you have a car with a driver at your disposal for a certain amount of time and you pay the hourly price for this service. You don't have to be precise, except for the pick-up address. You can stop as much as you need everywhere you want, you can modify the itinerary during the trip by adding or deleting points to visit. You can extend or shorten the duration of the service within the predefined limits. When you book a private driver with a car you have to specify the farthest point where you need to go, on this basis we will indicate the minimum duration of the service, because the price per hour will remain the same regardless of the distance. 

For instance, in Paris, the minimum duration is 3 hours. When driving to Loire Valley the minimum duration is 12 hours, but you have all the freedom to stop and to visit any address in Paris or any castle in Loire Valley during the trip.

Long-distance taxi VS long distance private car service?

See above, a long-distance private car service is the same thing as a private driver for long-distance.
