Casablanca Transportation is an Orlando international airport taxi company that offers meet and greet service which means the driver meets the customers at the luggage claim area holding a sign with their name on it. We offer transportation service from MCO airport to any desired destination, and we also pick up customers from various residences to the airport. We are licensed to pick up at Orlando international airport and we commercially and fully insured. Our flat taxi rates are fairly priced making us fairly cheaper than our competitors and metred cab services. We provide convenient door to door transportation service and we cater to all group sizes since the capacity of our fleet is enhanced by the availability of luxury sedans, vans, SUVs and even mini-buses.
Since our livery service is permited to operate at Orlando airport and since this airport is so popular for customers heading to Port Canaveral Cruise Lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Disney’s, such customers can count on us when looking for a taxi to Port Canaveral to help with all their transportation needs. They can rest assured that our flat rates are so competitive and affordable, they already include airport pick up fees, expressway toll charges, port drop off and pick up fees and taxes. The only additional charge they may pay for is the gratuity to the driver.
Customers can also arrange with us transportation from Port Canaveral to the airport or any where they need to get to as part of a smooth and convenient planning for their trips that way they don’t have to scramble for last minute arrangements which could be costly and time consuming.
I wish 60 minutes would listen or at least email me back about a whistle blower idea suggestion I submitted to them about how Disney and Mears transportation are in bed with each other to exercise a monopoly on the transportation service in Orlando, Florida and ultimately kill all the competition there is in Orlando, FL.
I don’t have a problem with them doing what they have to do to compete with others but what I don’t think is fair is that Disney charges any independent transportation company or taxi service $20 to get in through the gate of any of its theme parks per day which is outrageous especially when other companies like Universal Studios and Sea world don’t. You would think a company like Disney would want to actually thank you somehow for bringing customers to their door not punish you for it.
Also they don’t allow any company that is not Mears transportation which they have a contract with to do their shuttle, taxi and bus service to drop off by the sidewalk in the downtown Disney area telling everyone to drop off in the parking lots which is very inconvenient for the guests especially when they can’t walk much or are handicapped. They used to have designated areas for other companies or cab services to drop off people and pick them up in the parking lot area but now they even got rid of
that ??!! Further more they have been trespassing people for no reason at all just for dropping off people where they normally should be dropped off by the sidewalk. And all of this for one reason, they want Mears and only Mears do business in there property. As if Mears transportation doesn’t have enough business in the whole Central Florida area.
Let me tell you something about Mears , this company has so much monopoly in this area that no other company in the US has in the transportation business. They run 3 taxi services, yellow cab, checker cab and city cab and they are the main company in both Orlando International Airport and Sanford International Airport. Also they are the primary transportation company in the Orange County convention Center, Universal Studios, etc… besides Disney of course.
I just think that something needs to be done about this situation. Few Orlando cab companies tried to fight this ridiculous situation but in vain since no one else seems to stand up to Disney or Mears in this town.
I’d like to update this article since Disney decided to finally waive their
drop off or parking or whatever fees to enter all their theme parks. It seemed like it was never going to happen in the past but something must have occurred to make them change their mind and I am so glad they did like all the numerous other vehicle for hire and cab companies in Orlando!
