If you are planning to travel to either a domestic or international airport, there is a good chance that when you arrive, you will not have immediate access to a vehicle. When this is the case, an airport taxi service can prove to be quite valuable because it can take you to your destination without you having to spend several hours trying to rent a car or catch a ride from an acquaintance in the area. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions concerning airport taxi services in Canadian airports across the country.

How do you know if a particular airport will have a taxi service available?

In order to find out whether there will be an airport taxi service available at the particular airport you plan to travel to, it is a good idea to check out the terminal's website for information. In most cases, you will find a section of information about how to arrange for transportation from the airport. This is where you can typically find what you are looking for. However, you can also get information when you book your flight by phone by checking with the airline representative you speak with at the time. 

Will there be extra fees involved for being picked up at the airport?

Most airport taxi services do most of their business to and from the airport and therefore there is really no differentiation between travelers. However, off site taxi services may charge a slightly higher rate for incoming passengers simply due to airport parking fees and tolls that may be in the vicinity.

Is there a way to ensure that there will be a taxi available when you arrive from your flight?

If the airport taxi service is operated by the airline itself, you really should not be concerned with there not being a ride available for you when you arrive from your flight. However, if it is pertinent that you leave at a precise time, you may want to schedule a pickup for when your flight is due to arrive. This can often be accomplished online or by calling the taxi service well in advance of your trip.

One of the last things you want to do when you step off of the plane is to waste your time looking for transportation. When you have an airport taxi service available on site, you will be much less likely to see this as an issue when you travel.
