Ordering a traditional taxi indeed coming with following advantages over uber taxi:
Easy online booking
Welcome pick up at the airport including meet and greet without extra cost
Low prices in comparision with uber taxi
Lisensed taxi drivers
Insured taxis which has expensive commercial insurance
Luxury modern Mercedes Benz which is also one of the requirement by the town hall for taxi operator
Online payment, cash, card payment in the taxi, bank transfers, future payments on bills for regular clients
Now, the choice is yours what suits you the best.
Antwerp is a small city with only 460 active taxis in the city. Many times all of these taxis are not active. Small but very beautiful city of the country of European Union headquarters (Belgium) cannot accomodate the capcity of welcoming modern and globally famous APP like uber.
It was and yet a big question mark for the taxi drivers in brussels that why even authorities had to allow without asking regulated requirements to be met for a company like Uber.
Uber have been banned by many European countries because of regulated insufficiencies of meeting the requirements. Taxi sector is a highly responsible and regulated industry in Europe and any new competitors should meet the regulatory requirments at least.
Better traditional taxi Antwerp then Uber. Uber does not have any regulated taxi drivers which will make the customers even to pay more.
Be wise for choosing your transport partner when visiting Belgium.
