Roger was great! A wealth of information, wish we had met him sooner. Bats bailed us out, picked us up in 3 minutes, Uber was going to make us wait for 30 minutes.

Bats is our taxi of choice, especially for their flat-rate ride to the airport. Quick, friendly, efficient - what more do you need?

Hi Jane, For online booking, you may book up to a month in advance. You may also call dispatch and book as far in advance as you would like. Should you choose to use BATS or not, we hope you have a great trip!

Taxi from Tampa airport to Madeira beach (4 Replies)
Does anyone have a local taxi they could recommend? We have previously always stayed in St Pete and used Bats Taxi. Not sure if they would deliver us somewhere other that St Pete.

If they do St. Pete, I'm sure they would do Madeira Beach ... it's not that far from St. Pete. You could also check into the Super Shuttle which would be a shared ride so would take longer.
