It is always good to plan ahead, but you are fretting too much. Don't worry, you will make it to your place in Mississuaga in one piece.

I paid for a seat in one of those vans that are hovering around the Airport, seven years ago. I think it was 50 (or 70) bucks to my doorstep in Waterloo(two hour drive from Mississuaga). Two pieces of baggage per person.

You could rent an entire van for that price and get dropped off at your doorstep in Mississuaga. Don't worry about "legality" of these services too much. This is one of those grey areas which is normal and accepted(they have arrangements with the Limo companies as well).

FH, I am so grateful to you for your time and concern that you always show to solve our issues. Picture is quite clear to me now. Based on the links that you provided earlier. I talked to few private service providers and one of them has shown consent to pick me up for CAD60. He says that he just hold the regular Ontario license and that's all. Probably in other words he may just come as a friend to pick me up, would that be fine ! Should I avail his services ! Actually there is a caution posted on Pearson international web site in the taxis and limos section, which says "Passengers are advised not to hire drivers soliciting inside the terminals or asking guests to follow them to the parking garage or any other location due to safety reasons."
I am more concerned about the legality of availing such private services rather than safety, if there is nothing illegal in moving with these private service providers, I think no harm in saving few bucks :)

San this sounds perfect, I just called them and they said their mini vans are parked at the airport. All I need is just to call them after I collect my luggage, and they will be there. He asked my postal Code and said that it's CAD 39 all inclusive. Can't believe the fare, are they really good and this fare is all inclusive. He also says that no prior booking is required.

FH and Elmer Fudd, many thanks for your input,

$39 is a steal ... when compared to fares of a normal cab. Good deal.

Yes this is my time tested taxi service. I used local guys, some other taxi service , all charged me more than this service. These are professional people , never are late at my door step, Even when there was snow, opens car door for you, help in placing luggage and taxis are clean.

Pls give 5$ tip to the driver. You are new but that is the custom here.. so your charges will be $44.

FH , thanks, just now I checked with them and they say since my arrival time does not come under rush hours, so no need of any prior booking, they will be having plenty in the holding area during that time. Further I just need to give them a call and it will reach within 5 to 7 minutes :) only thing, they say mini van can take five passengers and 5 luggage pieces, whereas I have 7. But again they don't go by the weight, rather size. Now only worry ......What if I call the mini and my luggage doesn't fit :( and second how to call them from airport :(
