Below we'll try and show you how we price our journeys from a price per mile basis, currently £1.75 per mile with a minimum fare of £15 through to a daily rate. We also list a summary for those of you who like to skip to the bottom.

Please note that we DO NOT undertake regular private hire work, pubs or clubs. For this type of work, please consult one of the taxi companies listed in our links page.

Price per Journey

This depends on where we pick up from and final destination.

Some customers will have certain regular journeys where we will issue them with a price list for those journeys.

Waiting Time - This is charged at £20.00 per hour in increments of 15 minutes.

Airport Pickups - Waiting time is only charged after an 1h 30m of the flight actually landing and not the scheduled arrival time. Therefore, you will not be charged waiting time if your flight is delayed.

Airport Car Park Charges - We will only put the car in the Airport car park once the flight has actually landed. We will not charge you for the first hour in the car park. However, any additional time incurred in the car park whilst waiting will be charged to the customer.

As a rule of thumb, our prices average £1.75 per mile - some routes being less and others being more.

Minimum Fare - Our minimum fare is £15.

We will give you a fixed quotation for the journey beforehand.
