    Hi - last time we were out there we spent a fortune on mears taxis going to malls and seaworld. My question is, is there a cheaper taxi company than the yellow mears cabs that disney use or is it cheaper to use towncars instead?

    I'm not sure if towncars actually are cheaper most of the time--at least for short distances. The main advantage is it's a set fee, where taxis charge by the mile plus time. So if you're stuck in traffic, the fee can increase quickly.

    I would think it would be advantageous to look into the cost of a towncar for trips to places such as SeaWorld and the malls. The disadvantage is having a set time to return--you can't just spontaneously leave early or stay longer.

    For towncar services, check into Tiffany and Quicksilver. They're the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Or search for towncar services in Orlando, FL.
