Taxi from Florence airport to city centre?

I've just started researching Tuscany for our forthcoming week's holiday and already established that its not a good idea to have car hire whilst in Florence. I thought of hiring our car back at the airport after a couple of days in the city, then driving south for the rest of the week, dropping off our car at the airport on our way home. However, my husband reckons the taxi fare from airport to hotel in Florence then back again would be very expensive, and is adamant that he wants a car from day one as it would work out cheaper!

Anyone out there available to referee this?!

Many thanks!

The taxi from the Florence city centre to the airport charges a FIXED rate of 20 Euros, plus 1 Euro for each piece of luggage (maximum 5 Euros). The charges for the RETURN trip are identical.

On Sundays, the FIXED rate is 22 Euros (plus luggage)

At night (22:00 to 6:00) the FIXED rate is 23.20 Euros (plus luggage)

There is an airport bus every 30 minutes from the SMN train station (across from the taxi rank) and from the bus depot to FLR for 6 Euros (luggage included). Service back FROM the airport is also every 30 minutes, and the cost is the same.

Therefore, a COUPLE will pay 12 Euros on the airport bus or a minimum of 20 Euros (plus luggage charge) for a taxi. This cost is in EACH direction.
