Shoot, I don't know anything about taxis here. I bet it would be expensive, tho.

I guess car rentals are expensive the week of christmas. Dang.

you will come out better with a car rental. the taxi fare will end up close to what a rental is and unreliable

Check with hotwire, I can usually get a compact for $20 a day

As for taxi's the 14 miles from the airport to my old apartment would run about $35

Did you check cars at rental lots OFF the airport? They are typically cheaper.

I know it was about 80 dollars from Wilkesboro to Charlotte Airport which is an hour and half from the airport.

Try calling these taxi cabs and ask their rate:
(704) 334-6666
(704) 522-3552

Here's a link for getting taxi quotes (http://www.crowncabinc.com/quoteafareonline.asp - broken link) in Charlotte - the 32 miles from airport to Mooresville would set you back $66, according to the site.

I ran a random 'Tue-Thurs' in January found rates starting at $160 on Travelocity but only $100 with Hotwire.
