Reconfirm Your Hotel Taxis
I was recently in Kona, Hawaii and I needed a taxi to take my wife @NatalieDiScala and me to the KOA airport. I called down to the hotel concierge the night before our departure to order one and he said, “No problem.” Because I’ve been burned before, when I woke up in the morning the first thing I did was call the front desk to reconfirm that a taxi had been ordered. Fortunately, it had been, and that simple call relieved a lot of anxiety and possible aggravation.
When you’re in destinations that don’t have a lot of taxis readily available, you should always reconfirm an important taxi if you arranged it much earlier, like the night before. Better to relieve stress—and better to avoid being burned.
