Taxi for three people + luggage

Taxi for three people + luggage

We plan to take a radio taxi from GIG to our hotel, could three of us plus 3 large suitcases plus 3 carryons fit in one taxi?

If not, we were thinking of taking the Shuttle Rio, but will they drop us off at our hotel (Windsor Copa) or do they only drop off at selected hotels?

Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions.

In your case, you may want to check with a radio taxi company if they can provide you with a larger car. They usually operate with a Fiat Doblo (among other models), which has a larger storage capacity. You could ask straight away: "do you have a Fiat Doblo?"

Hello Adrian,

We took a radio taxi from GIG to our hotel in Copacabana. We were 3 adults travelling with 4 suitcases and a few more carry on bags (don't ask why so many!). Most bags fit at the back and those that didn't were kept on the front seat by the driver. We paid R$125 for our trip.

You can always request for a larger cab or check with your hotel, they may offer a decent rate with a big car.
