Finding Quality, Inexpensive Taxi Service

For business travelers, cab service can get quite expensive. Although it may seem like finding cheap and reliable DFW taxi service is impossible that isn't entirely the case. There are ways to find this type of transportation, but you have to do your research.
Shop Around

Shopping around for the best cab service may seem absurd, but if you want quality yet inexpensive transportation this is the way to do it. There are 17 cab companies that serve the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. These cab companies compete with each other on a daily basis. They know that in order to get your business they have to make their fares reasonable. Prior to arriving in Dallas-Fort Worth head over to the airport website under the taxi section. Here you will find the numbers of all the cab companies that service airport travelers. Give each of these companies a call until you find the company that will offer you service that fits within your budget.
Reserving a Cab

Shopping around for a cab isn't the only way to find cheap cab fare. When you shop around and choose a company ask for a discount for reserving a cab in advance. Cab companies (and cab drivers) lose money when their cabs set idle. By reserving a cab ahead of time you are guaranteeing that cab company your business. You could be rewarded by the cab company for this reservation. If the cab company doesn't offer you a discount for reserving in advance, ask for it. What is the worst they could tell you? No? If they do, hang up and try the next company.

Consider Flat Rate Service

The Dallas-Fort Worth airport website lists approximate flat rate fare locations. These locations are places like the Dallas Business District, the Convention City, and Arlington City Hall to name just a few locations. If you need a DFW taxi to a hotel near one of these locations, consider paying the flat rate to that location and then walking the extra block or two to your hotel. This can save you more money than you may imagine.
