Throughout the whole country of Argentina the so called "remis" service is very well known. A remis is a sort of taxi service, but the difference is that you just hire a driver with his/her own personal car. A remis is many times considered much more safe because you don't just pick them up from the street (they are unrecognizable) but you have to order them in a remis service office or you can phone them. If you stay in a certain area of Buenos Aires for a longer periode (weeks) or if you stay in a city of village within Argentina for weeks than it is really interesting to get in contact with a local remis service. Another advantage is, especially in Buenos Aires, the fixed price you can agree for a trip. If the remis is losing time in traffic you do not pay for waiting in the traffic jam.
