Edinburgh has so much to offer when it comes to tourism. The views from Arthur’s seat cannot be missed, there are castles to visit, and who can forget the beautiful old town area. You probably have a whole list of sights to see from the internet before going. However, there is one issue that every tourist ends up facing, not just in Edinburgh but everywhere else too, and that issue is about transport.
Too Much Waiting
When people plan their tours, they do not account for the time that will be spent just looking for transportation. If you plan to visit five places in a day and have to wait 20 minutes for a taxi every time you leave a place, it adds up to hours. If you planned to visit five places, you may end up going to three or four, which can really put a damper on your plans for the tour. However, things do not really have to be that way anymore. Thanks to advancements in technology, tourists can get much better services now that are more convenient, fast, and comfortable.
Forget About Black Taxis
Instead of going the slow and cumbersome route, choose the new service that makes hiring taxis easier such as Minicabit’s website. How can it help? Well, here are a few tips for using it to make your journey better:
Book A Taxi
Don’t want to wait at the airport when you arrive? Book it in advance, so when you enter Edinburgh the first thought in your head is “Edinburgh is beautiful” and not “Oh man, how long will I have to stay in this queue to get a ride”. You can book for a return trip too, so when you are returning from an event there will be a car waiting for you.
Pick A Luggage Size
Worried if all your suitcases will fit in the taxi? The service has an option for specifying luggage, just tell them how many pieces of luggage you have and they will ensure that they send a big enough car.
Use The Additional Requests Feature To The Right Car
Travelling becomes even harder when you are travelling with someone who is on a wheelchair, as getting a wheelchair friendly taxi takes a longer time. With this service, you can just specify that the car that is sent should be wheelchair accessible and you will be able to travel comfortably. If you are bringing your pets along for the tour, you can specify that too, so that the car has space for them too.
These aren’t the only things you can do with the service; you can choose to pay by cash or credit, order a hybrid car or an executive car, share travelling plans with friends, and it even shows you rates from different service providers. This way you get to spend the maximum time visiting the beautiful castles, mountains, museums, and sights instead of spending time waiting to get a good enough taxi.
