You are likely familiar with the Cabwise campaign aiming to make taxi travel safer. At Cabmania we are in full support of staying safe when you’re out and about, and of course saving you money.
Taking an unbooked cab can put you in danger of attacks or robbery, and its really simple to book a cab in advance. Using an app, or a local taxi service make sure you know what time they will pick you up, where from and the drivers name. Leave your name for extra security, if they don’t know who you are, don’t get in the taxi!
We only accept licensed and registered minicabs on our service. Our taxi firms are individually rated by their Cabmania customer, which gives you even more information on what to expect.
Minicab drivers aren’t allowed to pick you up unless you have booked in advance, by doing so they are breaking the law. You can tell a minicab is licensed as they have a sticker in the window and will display their license next to their number plate. Even when fully licensed it is against the law for them to pick you up without an official booking.
Booking a minicab can be done via phone, email or app. If you are booking your taxi well in advance, for example for a birthday night out or airport transfer, it is a good idea to check and confirm your booking nearer to the time for added peace of mind.
With Cabmania.com booking a taxi can be 70% cheaper than going direct, because local firms are competing in a reverse auction for your trade. It’s a no brainer, book up, stay safe and save money. If you’re headed out this weekend why not get some quotes now?
