At Scream Directory, you can find a whole range of taxi and private hire (aka minicab) services in your local area, so when you’re planning an event, night out, business meeting or even a shopping trip, you can find the private hire car services that you need here. The difference between the two types of services is that taxis can be waved down in the street, booked or found in a rank. Private hire minicabs on the other hand can only be pre-booked and by law, they must be run by licensed operators. You can check whether a taxi or minicab is licensed with your local authority.
Most firms that we have listed in our directory operate a 24 hour, 365 day service so you can arrange transport at any time of day or night, at any time of year (including Christmas holidays), so even if you need to get to the airport in the early hours, we have the right private hire service for you. You should be aware that after midnight and on bank holidays, certain minicab firms may charge higher rates. We would advise that if your journey is very important that you book your taxi well in advance to ensure that there is a cab available. Fares for cabs really depends on the company, however the local authority will set certain fare limits per mile.
