Taxi Map FAQ

How do I book a taxi?

The TaxiMap system will be available from a link on your favourite cab company's website or via our directory: find a taxi.

From there you need to enter or select pick up points, any stops, and a final destination for your journey. This can be acheived using a number of methods:

  • Enter a postcode
  • Double click the map at the point
  • Drag a point to a more accurate location
  • Enter a street address
  • Enter a landmark or placename
  • Select an airport

Once all stops are entered click 'Calculate Price' to display the estimates for your taxi ride. Prices are displayed for standard saloon (for up to 4 passenger) and MPV (for up to 6 passengers or large or heavy luggage).

A BOOK button is available beneath each price. Clicking it will launch the booking form. The booking form will note details of each stop, the route and the taxi fare price estimate calculated. The rest of the booking form should then be completed and submitted.

Once submitted, the cab firm will either telephone, text or email (depending on your preference) to confirm the booking or offer an alternative.
