word of warning about Eagle Taxi

Just a word of warning. My husband and I have just returned from Marco Island. We flew home this early this morning so we decided to return to a hotel near the airport yesterday. We decided at the last minute to get a taxi from Marco Island to the hotel so it was a bit of a challenge for the bell hop to secure one for us. Finally, he was able to get an Eagle Taxi to take us to the airport. We were being charged a fix rate of $85.00, which the bell hops felt was too expensive, stating that the going rate was usually betwenn $60 and $80. We agreed anyways because my husband was not feeling well and we just wanted to get to they hotel. The driver arrive and as we set off, he had two cell phones on the go which he was talking into almost the whole way, I was not very impressed. He then did not know how to get to the hotel even with the GPS and he got turned around a couple of times. When we arrived my husband asked for change from a hundred and he said, "well the meter says $154.00". I was shocked, I said no that we had agreed to $85 flat rate. He asked me who told us that and I said the bell hop because I was standing right behind him when he was on the phone with you. Well, he didn't say anything but it left a bad taste in our mouths and I just want to caution other travels about this company. I hope it is only one drive and I have contacted the company to complain personally. Just beware.
