Taxis have for a long time followed a horokilometric pricing system and some still apply it. That is to say that it is the meter in the vehicle that determines the price of the trip according to the distance covered and the time spent in the vehicle. With this method of price calculation, it is impossible to know the exact price of the race before the race. At Shipotsu, we work exclusively with partner taxi drivers who practice advance booking, with a fixed rate known at the time of booking. No supplement or additional billing will be applied after the service is completed.

Let yourself be driven by professional transport professionals in a comfortable, high-class vehicle, a motorcycle or electric vehicle!
