Cleaner, greener cars

Most of our fleet are either hybrid or electric cars that are not just kinder to the environment, but are also smoother and quieter too.

And, we keep them spotlessly clean, inside and out, to ensure a pleasant travel experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

woman reading noticeboard
Do you do airport transfers and long-distance journeys ?

No. We like to keep all of our cars local and ready to go. Which is why we only do journeys within a 30 mile radius.

I want to book a cab for a specified time.

Sorry. We specialise in immediate bookings. The nearest available car, sent directly to your location as quickly as possible. This is because all our cars are proper taxis that work from the ranks and we cannot predict their locations or guarantee that one will be available at the time that you specify

Why is no-one answering the phone?

We don’t have telephone operators. Our drivers answer incoming calls themselves. Sometimes it isn’t safe to take phone calls whilst driving and we will redirect you to the online booking portal instead

Also, we switch the phone off when we reach capacity or when there are no vehicles available.

How long will I have to wait for a cab?

The easiest way to see how long our waiting times are is to use the online booking portal. Just enter your pick-up location and you’ll see a list of available cars with estimated times of arrival.

How much is my journey going to cost?

Fares vary depending upon booking method and time of day. See our fares page for more details. Get an estimate by visiting our bookings page and entering your journey details.

Are you available 24/7 ?

Nope. We’re open when we’re open and closed when we’re not. You can select from one of our trusted partners on the TaxiCaller app when we’re unavailable.

Can I pay by card?

Yes. We accept all major debit and credit cards as well as mobile payments. We also accept cash.


We’re doing our bit to help prevent the spread.
