It is at his/her discretion depending on their schedule whether or not they will be able to accommodate you. If an unscheduled stop is made you will automatically be charged the minimum amount of $7.50 for up to 1/4 hour of wait time, plus an additional $7.50 for each 1/4 hour thereafter. All wait time will be rounded up to the nearest 1/4 hour and is based on an hourly rate of $30.00/hr.

Airport Arrivals (it is a good idea to save our number in your phone)

Please turn on your cell phone as soon as possible after you have exited the plane. Once you have gathered your luggage exit the terminal, if you are at RSW the doors are numbered 1 thru 6, take note of the door number you are standing at then call us at 239-542-8294 to let us know what door to send the driver to. He/She will come from the waiting area and meet you at that door, it usually takes about five minutes to get to you. Our vehicles are Blue and White and say Academy Taxi on them, please flag the driver down when you see him/her. If you are at PGD there is only one door, please call and let us know when you have your luggage. We will be waiting for you in the short term parking lot directly across the street from the terminal. We will have the driver meet you at the parking lot entrance to help you get your luggage to the car.



Florida Law requires your child be in a car seat. If you do not have your own we have car seats and booster seats available, please reserve them when you make your reservation. Children up to 3 yrs old must be strapped into a baby seat, children 4 - 5 yrs old must ride in a booster seat, children 6 - 17 yrs old must wear a seat belt. Our driver can not leave the curb unless all parties are secure.



We will gladly transport your small pets,  when you book your trip please let us know that you will be accompanied by  your pet. We understand that your pet is one of the family and we generally do not charge extra to transport small dogs or cats. Larger pets require special arrangements but are usually not a problem.  All pets must be contained in a pet carrier for their safety and to avoid damage to our vehicles.
