For safety and to protect yourselves in case of accident or mishap on the road, you should look for a service with the following:

2. Current insurance policy.

3. Driver has current commercial/taxi driving license.

4. Vehicle maintained in good condition.

5. Driver is given rest between trips and is fresh when he starts your trip.

6. Miscellaneous considerations per your requirements include: driver comes on time, driver speaks English, driving by daylight only, 24-hour contact number, clear and fair rates, discount for shared cars, etc. All drivers have had their Covid vaccine.
