taxi vs private transfer

Hi all...I did see the list of private transfer companies but here's the question--do you think it's the same price for taxi vs private for a short trip from MoBay airport to Riu Palace Montego Bay? I know we could catch a cab but it is always nice to see that smiling person with your name on a sign and off you go...whatta ya think??

You need to contact several of the transfer companies to get a firm answer to your question. I would guess, however, that a taxi would cost less. Keep in mind that it is only about 2 mi. from the airport terminal to the RIU Palace Jamaica. A driver might need to wait some time for you to clear immigrations and customs while a taxi driver could be carrying fare paying customers around.

We used Fabian years ago when we had to go all the way to Negril. He was awesome. This year it's just to Riu in MB so a quick jaunt. Think I will use Ashton. Thanks for the replies, everyone. Less than 2 weeks I'll have my feet in the sand....wahoo!
