When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.

How to get a taxi in Antigua
If you’re looking to take an Antigua taxi, finding one couldn’t be easier. Taxis are available 24/7 throughout the island and can easily be hailed in the street if you’re in a busy area. If you’d prefer, you can also walk to one of the many Antigua taxi ranks located outside of major hotels, the harbours, popular beaches and the airport. It’s worth noting that taxis in Antigua don’t have a uniform colour and are usually privately owned, so it’s not uncommon for people to find a driver when they arrive on the island and then keep their phone number to use them throughout their stay.
If you’re travelling late at night or prefer a more door-to-door service, you may wish to ask your hotel to call a taxi for you or use one of the local phone dispatch taxi providers. Some trusted Antigua taxi drivers are:
