Inexpensive and reliable taxi/car service in Lugano

Our daughter will be living in Lugano for 6 months this January. We will visit her from time to time and, she as well, might need a car/taxi service. Can anyone recommend any safe, reliable and inexpensive service? We visited a few months ago and every taxi ride from 2-15 mins long cost $25!

A tip is something you give for things above and beyond the professional duty. A taxi driver just driving you down the street is just doing what s/he is paid for, so I fail to see the need for a tip. If he is helping to carry your luggage up the stairs or something like that, then and only then you should tip. Easy and clear.

I know it is different in US, but please tell your husband that he isn't in US at that point.

How about a rental car? awayrent.com is very good.

Usually i rent a small and cheap from Malpinsa airport in Milan. And drive 30 minutes to Como then 20 more minutes to Lugano. Just make sure that your hotel or apartment has free parking.

Driving is so enjoyable in Europe.

Enjoy.

Si mano non è detto che i taxi A che come dice lei sono regolati dal comune siano i meno cari!

Io sono un taxi B e posso assicurarle che i taxi B (salvo qualche eccezione) sono meno cari dei taxi A per questo riusciamo ancora campare nella giungla dei taxi di Lugano.
