Best Taxi from Small Town?

Is there a good taxi that I can get a ride from super early to the train station? Bus not running for me. I see some where you can book online ahead of time but not sure if they will show up. lol. thanks! It's not too far to the train station but I want to get a cab.

Call a couple of local taxi companies and ask them.

Re: Best Taxi from Small Town?

Have you considered Uber? Usually cheaper than a taxi abd quite easy to use once you install the app.

Re: Best Taxi from Small Town?

Many local taxis will operate outside of usual hours if booked in advance. Early morning runs are more likely to be accommodated if the taxi is quite close to you.

From what town to which train station? (Specifics would help.) Seeing as how your location is given as Thalwil, ask here :

(Last time I looked, probably over a year ago, there was no Uber coverage in my village.)

From Thalwil to the airport? It will be cheaper (no kidding) to actually overnight at an airport hotel - usually booking the night in advance will be around 80 CHF at the Ibis, and others aren't really much more expensive.

That will give you an extra hour of sleep, and no panic attack should the cab be late

Bahnhoftaxi Thalwil definitely does it. I heard the driver once discussing the trip with the similar requirements (early trip to the raiway station with bags) with a client over the phone.
