Welcome To The Gringo Taxi’s Lima Departures!
This is the Lima Departures page, if you’ve navigated here somehow and were looking for our Arrivals Page please click here. Otherwise we hope you enjoyed your time in Lima! Moreover, we hope you come back to see even more of what Lima and Peru has to offer.
Our availability has been severely hampered by the recent Covid-19 virus. The Peruvian Government has imposed a 50% limit based on vehicle capacity. Our SUV’s can actually carry 6 persons and our Sedan’s 4 without Luggage. However, the new limit is 3 passengers for our SUV’s and 2 for our Sedan’s. Also, no one is allowed to ride in the front seat next to the driver. The availability you’ll find on our pages is not us setting the date or vehicles available, but rather the Peruvian government setting restrictions.
Adding further complications to our availability is that some of our driver’s are making a choice to not work during this shutdown. Some of them have family whom are in the “high risk” category and for us, it’s 100% understandable.
In order to limit exposure to the virus Peru now requires all Taxi’s to create a “no touch” payment system. In response, we’ve created an online payment center and while we can still accept, we encourage people to use one of our online payment center. WE can also accept Yape or a card at the time of service either via a physical card, payment link to your email/WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.
Getting It Right the First Time
On the following pages we’ll ask you to provide the needed information to pick you or your family and friend’s on up time and from the right location. Whether you’re being picked up at a Local Address, Hotel or Airbnb we’ve got you covered.
If you’re are a business, and need an invoice please be sure to enter your Business name and Tax ID number (RUC in Peru).
We regularly cleaned and disinfected our cars prior to Covid-19, however Peru’s government has imposed a requirement that all Taxi’s must disinfect their vehicles between clients. The priority will be places you’ll touch while on route, such as door handles (both inside and out), window buttons and seats.
