In this article, we will try to tell you clearly and in numbers what is more profitable.
The need to move freely on business or tourist trips in other cities, or in your own city, in the event of a car breakdown, raises a fair question. And what should you prefer as an alternative to your own car-a taxi or a car rental? We will try to answer this question.
For each new trip, you make a new order to the taxi service. What does this give you? You do not care about the car, do not think about the route that may be unfamiliar to you, you will not become a participant in an accident or a traffic violator with the appropriate punishment, during the trip you can solve business and not very important issues. In general, you are a free person.
In each case of a taxi call, you will have to wait for it for some time, and during rush hour, this waiting can stretch for a fairly long period.
Each time you will be picked up by different drivers in different cars. They have different characters and habits, different driving habits and communication or non-communication with the passenger. Your phone conversations will be heard.
Anticipating your reproaches, I will say. Yes, you can order a taxi for the whole day, and then the car will always be at your fingertips. But here are the prices. More on this below.
By renting a car, you get the freedom of movement. But here it is necessary to keep in mind that driving in an unfamiliar city, and, especially, a large one, has its own peculiarities and nuances, for which you must be prepared. But if you are an experienced driver, then there should be no problems. However, you yourself will have to monitor the fullness of the tank and the cleanliness of the car. But this is the normal driving of the case.
There is no threat of compensation for damage in case of an accident (God forbid, of course), because our company, autopark, insures cars for full CASCO and CTP.
As you can see, there are no obvious problems in this option. It may seem that this is an expensive pleasure. Then let’s turn on the calculator, and press the keys.
COMPARISON OF TAXI AND CAR RENTAL PRICES
So, the problem conditions. You have arrived in Bishkek and you need a car for 24 hours. We will not be hypocrites and will focus on economy class cars, for example, Hyundai Accent.
Let’s start with renting a car. In our company autopark. kgz, the cost of renting this car for 24 hours is $ 35 — this is 2,971 soms, divided by 24 hours and we get the cost of one hour equal to 123.7 soms.
According to the dispatchers of two fairly well-known taxi companies in Bishkek, I will not name them, so as not to make any advertising or anti-advertising, the cost of an hour of using a taxi is 450 soms per hour,and in the other-the first hour is 500 soms, and then-400 soms.
In addition, very often the payment for using a taxi is calculated in quite complex ways. Consider the cost of delivering the car, the cost of downtime for 1 minute, the cost of mileage. Can you imagine how much time you need to spend to make all these calculations at the end of your trips?!
When renting a car, it is enough to pay money and use it for your health.
As you can see, from an economic point of view, renting a car is more appropriate than calling a taxi. In addition, there are a number of other advantages, which we mentioned above.
