Zurich to Fribourg Taxi !

Hello All,
I have gone through history of the this forum and tried searching for all taxis thread but unable to get information on any reliable taxis which I can book from Zurich to Fribourg. Someone suggested Taxi444 and I did called them but they are super expensive(~700CHF).
From the search on internet I have narrowed down to these companies :-
1. Swiss-taxi (https://swiss-taxi.com/en/zurich-airport-zrh-transfers)

2. Airport Taxi and transfer (https://airportstaxitransfers.com/tr...rich-Transfers)


Both are giving me decent quote(~300 CHF) and they have a good reviews too. I also called them and the response was satisfactory. But I still want to confirm from this forum if anyone has personally used there services before. Are they genuine and reliable ?


Also if anyone have recommendations on any other taxi services then please give so.


P.S :-The option of using train is not feasible bcos of the luggage and a kid traveller.

Re: Zurich to Fribourg Taxi !

This may not be super helpful, if you're set on a taxi, but another option may be for SBB to deliver your luggage to Fribourg for you. That way, you can have a nice train journey with your child(ren) without any bag hassle.

I'm not sure about those taxi companies. My neighbor is a taxi driver, and I can ask how much he would charge, if you wish.

Good luck on the journey!

Luggage and Railway from/to Airport couldn't be easier:

Re: Zurich to Fribourg Taxi !

Public transport would be a special misery at the moment anyway for this journey. From tonight, for about 3 weeks, the stretch Bern - Fribourg operates only with buses. This is because a major bridge is being repaired.

(German) https://www.bernerzeitung.ch/region/...story/25954673

During normal times, you could get a train in ZŁrich, direct to Fribourg (no changes), and the journey time would be 1h 23 mins. In that case, you'd probably manage with a taxi at either end of the journey.

Re: Zurich to Fribourg Taxi !

I would avoid Airport Taxi and Transport.

I had a flight delay of about 12 hours and despite telling them 16 hours in advance all they could do was cancel, without a refund. While they say they are 24/7, they arenít.

Re: Zurich to Fribourg Taxi !

if you need a carseat, make sure the carseat is actually fastened. I've had way too many experiences of taxis trying to pass off an unfastened carseat. I was willing to walk away every time.

Re: Zurich to Fribourg Taxi !

This one https://www.airportstaxitransfers.com

What pissed us off the most wasn’t they were refusing any refund, but they refused to even try and find a replacement service.

They a broker who use local agents as drivers. They just kept blaming each other for their inability.

Re: Zurich to Fribourg Taxi !

How much to rent a car one way? Might be cheaper.
