Urgent assistance please!

We are at a wedding in Adairsville and tomorrow we need to get to airport for flight back to uk

There are 5 of us plus luggage and have been quoted a taxi by our hotel at just under $400 this surely can’t be correct

Uber are not available so that’s not an option

Can anyone get me contact details of any taxi firms that can help

That doesn't sound out of line for a large party plus luggage for that distance. You need a van, not just a sedan. The taxi fare calculator found here: https://www.taxifarefinder.com/main.php?city=Atlanta&from=Adairsville+High+School%2C+Adairsville%2C+Georgia+30103%2C+United+States&to=Hartsfield+Jackson+Atlanta+International+Airport+(ATL)&fromCoord=34.338676,-84.919304&toCoord=33.640863,-84.444379 shows around $150 for a regular taxi and a passenger. How did you get there in the first place and why isn't Uber or Lyft an option?

Note that you need to be walking into the airport no less than 3 hours before your flight and the drive is at least an hour.

Are you at Barnsley resort?

https:/…our-location

"CHAUFFEURED TRANSPORTATION

We have partnered with Greene Worldwide Transportation to provide limousine and town car service for our guests. We are happy to assist with making arrangements for your transportation needs. Please notify us at least 48 hours in advance of your arrival"

If so, try a non-hotel service.

Here are Lyft estimates -

Lyft: $74-86 (~0 min away)

Lyft XL: $160-185 (~0 min away)

Lux: $185-210 (~0 min away)

Lux Black: $285-320 (~0 min away)

Lux Black XL: $355-390 (~0 min away)

A car service from Acworth (not as far out in the country as Adairsville) was $80 for 3 people about 10 years ago.

I did an online reservation with this limo company and the quote came up at $217 for a 6-7 passenger SUV.

Go online and look for other options.

Try the Blacklane app to see what options it offers.

But, you are a long way from the airport. It's going to cost a lot. You should have rented a car.

As noted, Adairsville is almost 70 miles from the airport. Thats over an hour's drive through some of Atlanta's worst traffic. You are unlikely to find a taxi for any reasonable amount of money.

How did you get out there to begin with? Can you not use that same method to get back?
