Always Yellow Taxis!!!
I think you would be able to get all 5 of you into one of the people carrier taxis, but it might be a tight squeeze with all your luggage, it may be better for you to take 2 cabs.
Thank you CMAXX - I think we will probably need 2 taxis - my daughters do not know how to travel light! I did wonder about a limo but guess it will be pretty costly.
NO..you cannot get 5 people in a taxi. You will need to call and get a minivan to shuttle you to and from the airport. We used Carmel, another is Tel Aviv
Someone recently reported here that Crown Limo
sent a stretch limo which accomodated 5 and luggage and cost less than a van from Tel Aviv or Carmel. Fancier too. I think they said it was $55 plus toll ($4.50) and tip vs $65 from Tel Aviv for a mini van.
I'd go for that, Keamma! Sounds like a deal! Our mini-van was nothing special... wish we had done that.
A limo service as suggested is your best bet as you can get a mini van big enough for all five people. It is not as expensive as you would think, unless you order a stretch limo. One popular company is www.carmelcarservice.com
Thank you all for your help - like the idea of a limo. Perhaps a stretch limo wouldn't be a bad idea though - to accommodate daughters luggage!!!!!!! Only joking (I think). Actually we are only going for 4 days....
I used Carmel car service and it was okay. The drivers were friendly and if you go to the web site www.carmel.com( I think, google it if not) you can get a coupon. The ride with them was cheaper then a taxi.
