Hello, fellow explorers! I’m Walter the proud owner of Gringo Taxis, and this post is on private hire taxis. Both the good and the bad. Let’s be real, not all private hire taxis should be offering their services. Some will leave you singing their praises, while others might leave you scratching your head wondering what the hell did I just do to myself? I’m here to help sort out the maze of options and show why my Gringo Taxis are the crème de la crème in private hire taxis.

Private Hire Taxis Have Varying Standards

The landscape is a bit all over the place when it comes to private hire taxis. Some companies go that extra mile (pun intended) to give you top-tier service, others… not so much. Relax! Gringo Taxis airport taxis are about bringing you excellence. Our skilled drivers and fleet of well-kept vehicles will catch you by surprise. Which you’ll need in Lima’s unpredictable traffic. Seamless transfers to and from the airport or hotel is our goal. A ride with in one of our private hire taxis should feel like getting into your own vehicle after a long flight.

Safety First

Let’s face it, an airport taxi is a must, and safety, as it should be, is a major concern for you. Doing a little research to find the right private hire taxi is crucial. Sadly, not all services take your safety as seriously as they should. At Gringo Taxis, safety is our thing, that’s why I started the business in the first place. I watched the daily news reports and saw a need. Our drivers, who are fully licensed and properly insured, and we ensure our vehicles are well maintained. Doesn’t seem like a lot just reading this but, once you arrive and see the other options, you’ll better understand. So rest easy, knowing you’re in safe hands.

One super important thing to consider is many tour agencies will use their family members to pick you up. Or they’ll go with the cheapest driver they can possibly find. I’ve worked with some of the top food tour businesses and know first hand how they try to beat a driver down on prices. I’ve been there, done that. Some places worry more about you than you know, like Miski Travel. Having a legal driver is important to them. It’s not just your safety, but also their level of professionalism. How far they’ll go to meet the customer needs and so on.

Transparent Pricing

Oh, the dreaded surprise fees and those hidden expenses that can really wreck your day. There’s nothing like a taxi saying to you the fare is this much, to then tell you they need you to pay the parking as well. This after you’ve already negotiated a price. This is also typical behavior for private hire taxis here. But not with Gringo Taxis! We’re all about being upfront and clear about our pricing, no unexpected charges here. Our fares are straightforward and honest, and we don’t  hide the fact that we are a bit more expensive. We provide an online payment system, legal taxis, fully insured and legally licensed drivers. Unfortunately here in Peru, you get what you pay for. That said we make your budgeting a breeze, so you won’t find any unpleasant shocks. It’s all about tranquility and no budget-busting surprises..
