Then you would know better than me if he made a change to what most are familiar with

    can anyone recommend a company (i don't do uber) that will allow walmart as the grocery stop?

    i going to amend this question to include-also a company that doesn't require all passengers to disembark during the grocery stop.

    he only does publix (and also requires all persons to exit the vehicle at the grocery stop-hoping to avoid this w/disabled family member).
    Must be a new policy. Used him last month and I was the only one to go into the store.

    I just used Tony Hind's service last week. Went to Publix; myself, my mom, and one of my teen boys went in to the store. The other two teen boys and my husband stayed with the driver (one of his, not Tony this time) inside the van. This is what we have done every time.
    Not sure what happened to make him say that, but maybe if you let him know about mobility issues, it won't be a problem. Good luck and have a fun time!

    I used Tony last month and requested a Target stop as I needed to buy a shirt (spilled a drink on the airplane). Wasn't a problem then so I wonder why the change?

    so i reached out to Tony to get a quote for MCO to RPR then RPR to Pop -- i was quoted $120
    did he increase his rates?

    This is new to me if rates were increased
    I last booked him 4 months ago

    Send him an email and ask

    $120 for a 3 leg car service is still less than what some companies are charging

    its not a 3 leg trip - only 2 legs

    MCO to RPR
    RPR to Pop

    I understand its not technically round trip but its still only a 2 leg trip -- maybe b/c i get two store stops? but an extra $20 to stop at the store is a bit much......
    an lyft XL from RPR to Pop is about $25 plus tip....might consider that instead and stock up on drinks and snacks on our arrival

    We used Tony for our recent vacation. MCO to Sea World resort. A few days later SW to Universal and then back to the airport after. There were 6 of us and it was 50 per leg. It was very easy and convenient and he was such a nice man! Thank you for the recommendation!

    We are going to use him again next summer to get to the port for our cruise. There will be 10 of us and he said he can do a luggage trailer to fit our bags.

    does the Publix Supermarket located on Universal Blvd sell alcohol? this is the store that Tony says he is stopping at for our trip -- we are in Canada and do not have any Publix stores!

    Round trip from mco to cabana bay. 6 adults, and two children(6 and 2). Arriving 8/9. What would be the best option? We also have annual passes that expire on 8/13. Would they be good thru that day?

    There is a liquor store in the same complex kitty corner from the Publix
    I hit both places when Tony transports me

    Definitely Tony. He has a 10 person van and (I believe) a car seat and booster seat available.
