Need a reputable taxi service/car shuttle

My hotel is charging my family $135 from city to airport, mxp. Was wondering anyone know of a reputable car service that can take my family to airport instead? I can't go by train or bus bc we have to leave by 6am. Thanks!

As the normal taxi fare from central milan to Malpensa airport is €90, this price is not unreasonable.

There are very early buses http://www.malpensashuttle.it/carico/documenti/orario_estivo_2013(3).pdf http://www.autostradale.it/pdf/festivitaaereoporti/OrariMxp01_01_11%20(3).pdf

The trains are faster, and there are three trains from Cadorna which arrive at the airport before 6 am http://www.malpensaexpress.it/en/.it/pdf/festivitaaereoporti/OrariMxp01_01_11%20(3).pdf

Is the train ok and on time? Does anyone know of a good car shuttle company or taxi?

we recently visited Milan and the taxi fare was $99 euros which is about $130, so the price you are being quoted seems correct.

perhaps they are charging you more because they need a bigger car for your large family?

Yes, the train is on time and more than OK! I've taken it from Cadorna station to MXP and the trip is about 35 minutes. The trains are clean and well-maintained, I've always had a seat and there is ample luggage storage with no lifting (the train and platform are level, so no stairs). Do remember to buy your ticket before you board and validate it at a machine on the platform. I use the self-service ticket machines; don't stand in line. I only once took a car service to MXP because my flight was at 6am. I visit the city every year and the Malpensa Express is great service. Recommended!!
