Lt TAXIS is entirely different to almost all other taxi operators in the UK, as we have fixed tariffs for all journeys based on the estimated time and distance of each journey.
Consistent, Competitive and Fair Taxi Pricing
When taxi drivers and in-particular private hire operators quote, their prices are based on a variety of factors that often don't really relate to their own costs. That is why it is very difficult to obtain consistent quotes/prices for any given journey, even with the same taxi operator!
Lt TAXIS have a consistent approach based on time and distance which is the same, every time, and is applied to all journeys across all of the South West (some peak time supplements apply on bank holidays etc.)
Our taxi fares are consistently audited to be the very cheapest or amongst the cheapest available within the South West taxi industry, so you don't need to shop around for quotes. You can trust us and know you are getting great value, every time.
The formula we use allows us to quote you quickly with the minimum of fuss, so for a virtually instant quote, send us an enquiry using our enquiry form!
Please be aware that certain times of the day are busier than others, especially school times where many rural taxi drivers have school contracts. ( 8am till 9.30am and 3pm till 4.30pm) If your journey is needed during these hours it may be necessary for us to source a driver from further out of the immediate area to ensure your journey is carried out, however this may incur extra charges for the "dead mileage" the driver has to get to you.
