"WELCOME TO MY HOME"
My name is Max and I would like to welcome all of you in advance
to our beautiful island Curacao and if you're already here on the island, WELCOME!
In Curacao there are a total of 200 independent Government licensed Taxi drivers, which is not enough for an island lots
bigger than Aruba and they've double the quantity that we have
in vehicles and frankly the Government of Curacao should start thinking about increasing the quantities of taxi licenses, because as
we're heading towards the year 2020 and more hotels are
opening soon, you would have to understand the need will
arise for additional transportation, that will guarantee more jobs
and decrease opportunities for illegal drivers!
Also know that each of the Taxi drivers individually has their
unique skills and expertise in the tourism industry of
Curacao and on my page you will guaranteed get the best there
is on the market!
As some of us see this, Taxi drivers should individually have
their own level of service oriented skills and also know how
to serve their customers fairly and with courtesy.
The problem is when you contact these Uber, Lyft, Taxi
association or instruct the bell boy, reception clerk, or the security guard to call one for you, you'll never get to choose
the driver you get and this often becomes a crap shoot when the driver shows up at your door and there are too many
issues we think that based on our selection procedure, that we can manage and solve this for you, so you can enjoy your vacation with the necessary peace of mind
while on Curacao.
Again, this is a fact you will find in almost every country you
visit and you have to make sure you get the best!
Government licensed drivers:
Now, the next issue we find very important for traveling guests.
How do you guarantee that you're not being transported by
people that are breaking the law and that doesn't have the
necessary documentation for transporting traveling guests?
How do you ensure that you are going to get a quality licensed
The fact is that in the past few years we found during our
research, that several North American and European Travel companies are overcharging guests. Furthermore they're
working with some unlicensed and others with a license,
that they acquire by registering through their websites and
create the opportunity for illegal drivers to violate our laws
of public transportation and we are worried with this
irresponsible and disrespectful attitude. Also it's good for
all travelers to know, that in the public transportation these
bus drivers they're using for transportation bearing the
license-plate with the word BUS and a number is only authorized
to do transportation based on the route stipulated by the
Government in their license and it's on a sign on the dashboard.
Under no circumstances they're entitled to do island tours
and neither making transfers out of the route stipulated in their license, because in a case of an accident the insurance
company will not cover your expenses. The last and worst
fact of all is, that these companies are making all travelers
pay double of the amount as stipulated by the Government
on taxi rates during any transfer or tours you do during your
stay here in Curacao.
So, beware when you are searching for your transportation
on the internet and pay carefully attention on companies
offering transfer or tour services in every country. When
they offer transfer from qualified drivers or private tours
by native people in our country, they're jeopardizing your insurance coverage, so make sure you're properly insured
when there is no Government license involved that is
required for legally transporting visitors from the Airport
or anywhere else in our country against a fee and look at
the license plate Tx or Tw. Something else would be
exposing yourself to unnecessary headaches you do not
want to go through.
Why paying more for a ride or tour when using their
services with a middleman getting paid? Why cooperate
and become an accomplish in violating the laws of public transportation in our country?
So, don't allow them to fool you with their promotions on
their websites offering lucrative 30% or 40% off on any
pickup and drop off from any destination on the Island,
while these drivers may not hold a valid Government
license with a Taxi sign on top of the roof and the license
plate with TX or by transportation companies doing a
transfer from the Airport or tours on the island with a
larger bus bearing the TW license plate.
This is what guarantees they've the necessary insurance coverage only for traveling guests, when you see they
have these special license plates!!
