Whch taxi firm to use?

Does anyone have any thoughts on which is the better /most reliable taxi to use from Bangkok to Pattaya; P.T.Taxi service or Boss Pattaya Taxi.

Have used PTTaxi in the past but the last time the driver turned up with a huge crack in the windscreen, no shoes and the taxi was filthy inside (so much so that I just perched on the edge of the seat the whole way) and stank of feet!! I did complain to the firm afterwards but never got the courtesy of even a reply.

I know PTTaxi they are reliable but would like to know if they have improved, also what are the cars Boss Pattaya taxi use like and are they reliable.

It will just be a taxi for 2 people.

Thanks in advance.

I have not used either these companies but have used Oriental Escape many times. You book on line and get a response within the hour (sometimes minutes). They are more expensive than some you can book but are always there waiting for you, even if you arrive early and exactly on time for your return journey. The cars are spotless, the drivers excellent - I've never had one talking or making phone calls while driving. They provide bottled water for your journey. After the first booking they automatically give you 10% discount on further bookings. You can get cheaper but you get what you pay for.

In my recent visit I used JJ taxi. I can thoroughly recommend them.

Had some bad experiences in taxis, drivers can be so unpredictable, what seems to be a nice guy turns into a thing possessed when he gets behind the wheel. So now, if it's my choice I will choose a lady driver. If that interests you, just google Nam's Pattaya taxi service.

Mr. T and PT Taxi are pretty reliable in my experience.
