Reliable taxi company

I am looking for a taxi company/taxi driver in Lisbon for the airport transport and day trip to Sintra. I found lots of comapnies on teh net but I don't know how reliable they are....

Thanks.

Thanks!

I wrote to Lisbontaxis yesterday and they replied promptly and gave a rasonable price. So I booked the airport transfer with them.

Or Teletaxis. (+351) 21 811 11 00 At least I know that their taxis are tracked by GPS in case someone complain about roundabout trips.

Anyway, it's a lot more reliable - read cheaper - if you take the train to Sintra. Also driving to Sintra means one has to take the infamous IC-19 road which easily get congested on working days. There's no need to cramp the Greater Lisbon with even more cars if you have other excelent means of transport.

From the airport you can take the aerobus. The metro will probabily open this year a station there, though maybe only after your stay here.

Well, I am travelling with my elderly mom, so airport transfer is a must. My Mom is agile for her age but with the luggages it is more comfortable to take a taxi. On top of this, our flight leaves very early in the morning (at 6.55 a.m.) and I am not sure that the airport bus operates so early.

But Sintra - yes, I think, it is better idea to take the train.

Thanks :))

I came across this site, but cannot garantee anything about reliability because I've never heard about this company.

We choose http://www.lisbontaxis.com.pt/ for airport transfer and a Sintra day trip and we were VERY pleased with their services. The transfer driver was on time, the car was comfortable and the day trip was perfect. Pedro is an excellent guide and he organized everything smoothly.
