What is the difference between a french Taxicab and Private hire?

The day of your ride, you will be driven by a driver from a company we have stricly chosen. We are working with a network of partners. They can be either Taxis (cab companies) or Private hire firms.

Wether you are driven by a Taxi or a Private hire driver, our service remains identical, meaningly:

  • All-included fixed price
  • Guaranteed booking
  • The driver will wait for you even if your train is late (no extra charge)

The main difference between Taxis and Private hire is that Taxis have a lampstand on the top of their roof whereas Private hire don’t (their cars look like any unmarked vehicules). To ensure yourself to meet the driver, please:

  • Show up at the meeting point given in the confirmation email. You driver should wait for your there (he should also hold a sign with your name),
  • Feel free to call the driver (cell number is texted to you a few minutes before your appointment) if you cannot find or recognize him or hed,
  • Have a look at your station on our website, meeting place is described right there.
