Cost and Savings


Elite Carriage Company charges similar to Uber XL and Uber SUV, but is usually a little less expensive.  A typical ride from Traverse City to Charlevoix , for example, would be approximately $120.00. 


Compared to renting a car for the day the costs would be around $60.00 plus fuel ($9.00) plus lost time driving 2 to 6 hours.  The advantages to having a professional driver are limitless. 


Consider this alternative to renting a vehicle.
