Cab/Collectivo cost from city to city (booked in Cuba) - Kuba Forum
There is no such thing as a "normal" taxi tariff for every stretch in Cuba. Rates differ depending on the pick-up location and location. From Jibacoa I have always spent half of the campsite's price on Havana as the tourist collected from one of the resort's about a kilometer away.
Tariffs differ when you try to organize transport for a certain date in the near term with a particular chauffeur, as opposed to when you find a chauffeur next to an empty vehicle willing to drive. It' no trouble to find a taxi that waits at Jose Marti in Havana for 25 CUC. Just try to make sure that a certain person is just gonna wait for you.
Tariffs differ according to nationalities. I had to make a journey to Havana from Holguin last year, so I showed up at the coach terminal one hour before leaving and looked for a drive. When I inspected the truck and found everything right, even an empty chair, I consented. Dude tells me to give him 20 and the chauffeur 20.
Saviour mercy for most tourist is that they never realise that their journey could be undertaken for much less money.
2012 COLT - Tour Information
Below is a plan of the Waverley Station, Edinburgh Station and Airlink downtown stations (see below) together with the locations and suggested accommodation. The Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is the most comfortable place to travel by air. From Edinburgh there are frequent flights to Europe's major hub airports (London, Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam) and low-cost carriers (including EasyJet, RyanAir, Jet2, BMI and GermanWings) serve many British and EU routes.
Connecticut Airlines offers non-stop services between Edinburgh and New York. Visit the Edinburgh Airports website for a complete flight schedule and maps to and from Edinburgh International Airports. A taxi from Edinburgh International Airports to the city center will take about 20 min and will cost about 20 pounds. At Waverley Steps we have a 30 minute £3 free Waverley Steps service. 50 one way or £6. 00 round trip.
There is an hourly service every 15 min from the airports throughout the entire working week, departing from front of Main Market Railway Terminal, Shandwick Place (West End) and Waverley West Ends. The Glasgow International Airports (GLA) has a similar selection of attractions, with extra connections to Toronto, Vancouver and San Francisco. Citylink also operates a 25m long 4pound Buchanan Street downtown Glasgow Rail Terminal service; from there you can go on foot to Queen St. Railway and take a 45m long 10pound Edinburgh Waverley Railway station or another Edinburgh Railway Terminal service.
Also RyanAir flies to/from the less comfortable Prestwick International Airports (PIK). Edinburgh International Airports is about 2h15m away by rail or coach to Edinburgh and you have to switch in Glasgow. Please be aware that if you are travelling by rail, you must switch from Glasgow Central to Queen St., between which there is a shuttles.
The Edinburgh Waverley Station is the stop for the Downtown Edinburgh, while Glasgow and Glasgow services also stop at the Haymarket to the west of the city. Express services to/from Glasgow depart from both central railway stops every 15 mins. There'?s no shuttle to/from the terminal. On the National rail enquiries website you will find timetables and fares for your journey, although you can save on administrative charges when purchasing directly from the railway companies' sites.
While you can buy your ticket at the railway stations, for long trips you can book in ahead and set your timetable much more convenient. Eurostar services connect Paris with Edinburgh in around eight-hour time. National Express operates most long-haul busses. Busses to the borders are operated by several enterprises, among them First Group.
Locally located busses are mainly operated by Lotus busses (red and blue busses) which have an active journey planner. Busses run often throughout the whole working week, with limited overnight bus services between 12 a. m. and 4 a. m. Busses are set fares and no exchange is given (but the Lotus Busses shop at the airports is known for giving change).
You can buy a daily pass on the coach and it provides unrestricted rides for 3.20 (not available on Airlink buses). Weekly tickets cost 16 and are available at three downtown sites. The majority of downtown attractions are only a 15-30m walking distance away. You will be picked up anywhere on the road, except near a taxi stand where there is a queue system.
You can also call a taxi or make a reservation in beforehand. Some of the biggest taxi operators that can usually get you a taxi within a few moments of calling are Central Taxis, telephone number 0131 229 2468, and City Cabs, 0131 228 1211. Taxi from the airports costs about 20; a taxi within the city could typically take about 5 pounds.
Taxis do not need to be tiped, but it is usual to round the price. Please notice that it is not advisable to travel in the centre of Edinburgh (Princes St, George St, Shandwick Place and surrounding area) because of the tramway work that is going on at the time. When you need to travel, look for detour signals (which can vary from time to time ) and remember that satellite navigation devices may not know the actual state of the network.
Note that road car parks are usually very restricted and can be costly in the city center. You can park for free (and then take the bus) about 1-2 mile from the city center, e.g. in Leith, or use one of the Park-and-Ride services on the outskirts of the city (but the travel to the city center is usually about 30-40 meters by bus).
A lot of rental agencies operate both from the airports and from places in the city (but mostly a little outside the city centre).
