    take her home

    He offered to take her home in a taxi.

    The sentence above comes from COLLINS. My question is, what does 'take her home' mean? 'Take her to her house' or 'take her to his house'? And

    Is there any difference between 'take her home' and 'see her home'?

    Thank you in advance.

    Without surrounding context, it means take her to her home.

    There is no basic difference between taking a girl to her home and seeing her to her home - they both mean that you are being a gentleman and making sure she arrives home safely [I hope].
