All our drivers can bring you to where most traffic is limited. Often, drivers can drive you right up to the steps of the museum or church. However, some of our drivers are also tour guides so they can also conduct walking tours, in a church or museum. In Italy, there is a separate license for official Tour Guides. We work with an excellent network of registered Tour Guides for each city in Italy and can assist you in booking an English-speaking guide.
TRANSFER’s cars and drivers are registered with the NCC license (noleggio con conducente – car and driver rental). Each license is prominently displayed in the windshield of each vehicle. Each car is registered with a serial number and a fixed plaque next to the rear license plate. Only NCC drivers and Taxis can legally transport private individuals in Italy.
The NCC licenses are granted to local counties and municipalities in limited numbers often NOT annually but when a license “becomes” freed up by a retired driver or based on population and demographic needs. Thousands of candidates apply to even ONE opening. Due to the high demand, the NCC licenses are very “coveted” in Italy and, especially, the Tuscan region. TRANSFER is proud to own six NCC licenses.
In Italy, you cannot always hail a Taxi cab as in the U.S. Taxis are often found at fixed taxi “points” in city centers or come to your address/hotel by telephone request only. There are Taxis outside of the airport and train stations however there can be a line of other tourists or locals awaiting a cab during peak season.
Taxi cabs in Italy start at a base fee and at the end of the ride, the final cost is calculated on distance (or time still in traffic) and a series of SUPPLEMENTS. Here is a list of some of the Taxi supplements for transfers:
on Sundays and holidays
each large bag placed in the rear trunk space
from/to the airport also may have a different base rate
With us, not only will your driver be waiting for you at the airport arrivals, you will have a courteous welcome with your name on the welcome card, a hand with your luggage and an established SET fee for the service.
There is truly no comparison to a Taxi transfer,our vehicles and drivers are the best way to arrive from the airport and start your vacation!
- There are two kinds of highways in Italy – the autostrada and the superstrada. The speed limit on the autostrada is 130km/h = about 80m/h and 90km/h on the superstrada = 55m/h.
- Italy’s highways and freeways have precise exits and on ramps to accommodate their toll booths. Tolls are calculated by the distance traveled from point of entry to the exit. You must pull your ticket from the automated teller and give it to the teller at the exit toll. by the way , all our fares are included of tolls too.
