Private car transfer in Viet Nam!
What is the best transportation to travel in Vietnam? That’s the first question every travelers who would like to travel here think about. Shuttle bus or tourist bus? Good, but we have to wait for another passengers. Also, on the way, we cannot stop to take a photo. How about taxi? Opps, how can we know if the driver take us to the longer way to take the higher cost? How about train? We have to pay a lot of money for train ticket and local taxi to reach our hotel. Fortunately, there is a type of transport can meet the requirements for an enjoyable trip: Private Car.
At first, how to book a private car?
It’s very easy to make a booking online via many website such as: Hue Private Taxi, Da Nang Private Taxi, Hoi An Private Car, Nha Trang Private Car, Ha Noi Private Taxi, Sai Gon Private Taxi, Hue Locals. They are online 24/7 and reply your email request very fast. Or, we can contact with them via Whatsapp, Line, Viber (Number: +84 978 302 397). But, we should contact them at least 1 hour to make sure the car is available.
Second, how to meet the driver?
In the airport, the driver will wait for us at arrival gate with welcome board printed our names. It’s easy to see the driver, right? In the hotel, the driver will wait for us at the lobby. He will ask the receptionist to know who is the right passenger.
Third, how about the car?
All the cars have good air-conditional, clean both inside and outside. Their cars have free wifi so we can online Facebook or contact with our friends. If we have children or infant, they will offer us free baby seats. Especially, the driver can speak basic English, enough to help us during the trip.
Fourth, how about the method of payment?
They are flexible in payment. They don’t need deposit and we can settle the payment after end trip to the driver. They accept both USD and VND. If we would like to pay by credit card. It’s fine too. Their staffs will meet you at the hotel to proceed our credit card. But 4% of bank fee will be applied. Another way, if we would like to making an online payment we can pay via Paypal (4% of bank fee) or onepay (10% VAT + 4% government fee).
Fifth, how about the price?
The price of private car transfer service is more expensive than shuttle bus, tourist bus. But, the cost will meet our expectation. We can maximize our travel time. Also, we can stop to taking photo, take short rest anytime and anywhere (of course, if it safe and allowance). If we think travel is transfer from A to B. That’s wrong. We shouldn’t ignore all the sightseeing along the way and the daily life of local people.
Do not hesitate anymore, making a booking and enjoy the service. Do hope you will have perfect experience like us!
