CabsInGoa.com review - Good & reliable service
Sun, 9 Feb, 2014
We had a trip to Goa in November 2013. As it was my first visit to the place and we didn't use any travel agent, I booked flights and resort on my own. After getting flight and resort booked, one thing remaining was airport transfer. The resort offered to arrange it for extra 3000 Rs charges but I felt it bit exaggerated because distance from airport to resort was around 56kms and I felt it should be lesser than that. I searched for options on net and most of them were charging around same. Also the reviews of taxiwallah were more negative about charging very high and ripping off customers.
Meanwhile I landed up on cabsingoa.com and found that they were charging 1100 Rs for airport to Calangute beach. As it was the lowest I found, I was worried a little whether they would be a good service to rely on or not but then I thought to give it a chance. Also there was no payment to be made in advance so I just selected to and from destination and placed a request for transfer from airport to Calangute beach.
Witin a minute of placing the request on cabsingoa.com I received an SMS and email with booking confirmation id and intimation that I would get another SMS with driver detail the day before my arrival. That looked promising.
One day before our flight I got an SMS with driver name and contact number. Also I got a call from Mr Sekar for our arrival confirmation and he said that driver will be there standing with my name at arrival gate. By this time I got sure that it must be a good service as they were taking care of their customer.
On the arrival day I got a call from the driver within few minutes of our landing and he said that he was waiting outside. We collected our luggage and spotted the driver in no time.
On the way to resort driver confirmed about our resort and he said that he was under impression that we were to drop at some other hotel. He informed that our resort was more on the Baga beach rather than Calangute beach as I booked for. Again I was bit worried that we could be charged more but the driver dropped us at our resort without any complain and didn't charge anything extra. We paid 1100 Rs. only as per the booking.
We didn't have advanced arrangement for airport transfer for our departure flight but it was no worry as I just called Sekar day before leaving and booked cab for 2:30pm. On departure day I got a call from driver that it would be better if we could leave half an hour early as it was Sunday and sometimes highway get traffic jammed on Sunday. We agreed and decided to leave half an hour early. Cab arrived at our resort exactly at 2:00 pm and we zoomed off to airport.
It was really good experience to use cabsingoa.com service as they made our airport transfer hassle free!
