Getting Around Toronto: Should I Book a Taxi or Rent a Car?

Planning on visiting Toronto soon? Whether you’re in the city for business or for pleasure—or both!—one thing you’ll inevitably need to think about is how you’re going to get where you want to go during your stay. While your first instinct may be to simply rent a car, taxis just might be the better option. Trust us: at AirFlight Services, we’ve been offering Toronto airport transportation for long enough to know the city like the back of our hand. Here are three excellent reasons to consider a cab over a car rental.

1. No Getting Lost No matter how great your sense of direction is, and despite you having the latest navigation apps on your smartphone, finding your way around an unfamiliar city is never as straightforward as it seems. There’s traffic, construction, detours, road closures, one-way streets that used go the opposite way and Google Maps hasn’t gotten the memo… you get the picture. Not only can getting lost be incredibly stressful—that important meeting is going to take place with or without you, after all—but it’s also a giant waste of time. And that time could be better spent taking in some of Toronto’s seemingly endless array of attractions, to which your cab driver always knows the fastest route. 2. No Parking Hassles Toronto is an incredible city, but let’s be honest: parking here can be a nightmare. When you can find it, it can be prohibitively expensive, and in some places it’s downright impossible to come by within an acceptable distance from your destination. And do you really feel like hauling that briefcase down six blocks of sidewalks? A taxi will drop you off right in front of your desired doorway. 3. No Worries Renting a car comes with its share of stressors. What happens if you get into a fender bender? What if one of your tires goes flat at the worst possible time? Sure, most car rental places offer good customer support in case of problems, but that still means you’ll be stuck filling out forms, waiting for a replacement vehicle, and so on. Relying on taxis, on the other hand, is efficient and virtually 100% hassle free. Plus, in densely packed downtown Toronto, there’s a good chance that more than a few of your destinations will be within walking distance. With that being the case, is it really worth the inconvenience of renting a car (not to mention paying for gas), especially when there’s always a cab just around the corner should you need it? Getting to and From the Airport While hailing a cab is often the most convenient option for getting around town, one thing that you might want to plan ahead for is your transportation to and from the airport.
