Taxi versus limousine

We are flying to Singapore next year arriving about 4.pm on a weekday. Having a look at Blacklane Limousines for transfers to our hotel. (Swissotel The Stamford) They are quoting about US$42.

Does this sound reasonable compared to a taxi? Has anyone ever used this company?

You can get a limo from the airport without any prebooking by turning up at the Ground Transport Desk next to the Taxi rank. Is costs $60 ( Singapore$) to any destination - fixed price. A taxi would be around $23-25 to any hotel in town. Both will likely be quicker than a per booked car ( which will have to park at the car whilst waiting for you, rather than at the concourse).

Hello, IMO you may take a regular taxi. It should cost you around S$30 and take about 30 mins to your hotel. They are reliable, metered with A/C.

At the taxi rank at airport an approx. fare is displayed regular taxi vs limo taxi. Limo taxi are more expensive than regular taxis. Tell the taxi dispatcher you want a regular taxi.

Hi tommyfromsydney,

If I were you I'd just take a taxi. Fare is about S$20-$25. If I want to be driven in style, then I'll take the Chrysler cab. Cheaper than US$42.
