Why booking a black car in Mexico City is a good idea

The best alternative to Uber in Mexico City

Booking a black car service is the safest alternative to taxi, Uber, Didi, Beat or Cabify as it provides a superior reliability, waiting time and service. The drivers are employed by the limousine operators, well educated and dressed and speak perfect English.

The best coverage

All the limo operators service the main airports and cities around CDMX, including: Benito Juárez International Airport (MEX), hoteles Hilton, Marriot, Four Seasons y St. Regis entre muchos otros, etc.

Booking in advance: no surprises

Booking your transfer in advance only brings peace of mind: no surge, assurance that a driver will be at the pick-up point at least 15 minutes before the established time, 24/7 English-speaking hotline and many other benefits no other service can match.

Fix prices

Prices are set in advance and you will pay before enjoying your exclusive ride, so forget about traffic jams, exchanging cash or surge for high demand. Book a black car to travel with peace of mind in CDMX.

Are taxis safe in Mexico City?

We don’t recommend hailing taxis in Mexico City as any other black car service provider or taxi app provides a better and safer service.

Most taxis don't accept credit cards and prices will not be set. Taxi drivers should use the taximeter but it is not a common practice. To stay away from all those potential issues, it is better to use an app-based service like Holiday Taxis or Blacklane.

Is Uber safe in Mexico City?

Yes, Uber is the safest way to move around in Mexico City and even safer than taxis. On top of the usual Uber features like having your ride monitored, knowing the price in advance, being able to pay online by card… Uber will never pick you up or drop you off from certain dangerous neighbourhoods like Tepito.

Besides that, all Uber drivers go through a background check and those with criminal records get rejected.

Asking around you will realise locals don’t hail taxis but use Uber and other Uber alternatives as a mode of transportation.

Taxi apps in Mexico City

If you are traveling or living in CDMX and looking for a cheaper alternative to black car services, you may want to ride on Uber or one of its alternatives as a safer option than taxis. There are currently 5 ride-hailing companies competing in Mexico City, so expect big discounts for your rides. Here are the best alternatives to Uber, sorted by service quality, availability and price:

Uber

As the biggest and well known ride-hailing app, Uber is also the best and safest option to move around Mexico City among the cheap options. It also has the highest amount of active drivers, so pick-up times are fairly low in Roma, Condesa, Polanco... Use the promo "uberpolgoide" to ride with Uber with a discount.

Didi

The Chinese giant landed in Mexico some years back with big discounts and lured lots of Uber Drivers and now is the 2nd player. The app is easy to use, drivers are as good as Uber’s and often offer discounts. They also expanded to smaller cities like Merida where not even Uber operated.

Beat

Active in Mexico since 2018, Beat is an international company backed by Daimler (Mercedes Benz) and trying to win market share by dumping prices. Great news if you are looking for cheap rides.

Cabify

The Spanish ride-hailing company was the 2nd to land in Mexico City but now it lacks behind the rest in promotions, even if the service is still super reliable. Use the promo code “POLG1” to get a discount on your 1st trip.

Bolt (formerly Taxify)

Bolt has been the latest player in a crowded and highly subsidized market controlled by Uber. Also backed by Daimler, its presence is still small compared to the rest but if we look at what they have done in other emerging markets we can be sure they will offer a safe and reliable service.
