Car Service in Milan - Help Needed

Hi. I am going to Italy next week and need to get to Milan from Venice. I was thinking of using a limo service called MILANOBYCAR -has anyone used them? If so, please let me know if they were reliable. Does anyone have any other car service recommendations?
thank you so much! Amy

Hi ah,

I take it that the train from Venezia San Lucia to Milano Centrale is not an option?

No, I'm travelling with a family member who cannot walk enough to take the train and I do not feel comfortable driving myself.

We used them last year for some in our group. They were fine, although one carload had a driver who insisted he needed cash and could not take a credit card.

Now I see they offer 10 percent off for cash to driver, some that seems to be something new.

Hi Ahl - Wouldn't train still be a more comfortable option?

Assistance is available at Venice and Milan stations - as at all main stations in Italy - for passengers with walking difficulties.

Certainly MUCH less expensive ...

Hope this helps ...

We use Luigi
His e-mail is [email protected]
He is taking us from Milan to Florence on the third of May.
Very nice gentleman, and he speaks English.

I cannot recommend Luigi any longer, as he is too busy, and my last two experiences were not good.
He sent inexperienced drivers, and the last trip Milan to Florence was unpleasant.
The man did not speak English, and had never been to Florence.
It took about a half hour for him to find our hotel.
