Behind the acronym VTC there is an equally simple name: VTC simply stands for "Voiture de Tourisme avec Chauffeur". As of 2015, this name has changed to become Voiture de Transport avec Chauffeur. One thing is certain, with a VTC you will have a driver with a vehicle for your trips.
In France, it was in the 17th century that the first so-called "remise" cars appeared, even if at that time the distinction between VTC and taxi was still thin. In order to relieve congestion in Paris, these vehicles had to park in sheds. The most luxurious vehicles parked in the large shed and the others in the small shed. It was only in 2010 that the term "remise" was replaced by "VTC" for "voiture de tourisme avec chauffeur" (chauffeur-driven car) before becoming "voiture de transport avec chauffeur" (chauffeur-driven car) in 2015.
In addition to a visual difference (the VTC does not have a light on its roof unlike a taxi), there are other differences. For example, VTCs are not allowed to raid the public highway, so you must book your VTC in advance, which will ensure that you have a vehicle at your disposal. As far as the price is concerned, VTCs are generally more advantageous as they have a price already fixed before the journey, thus protecting you from any unpleasant surprises.
