There are numerous different options that you could choose with regards to transport for an event. You could decide to use public transport such as a bus or a train, you could opt to travel in personal transport such as a car or motorcycle, or you could opt for a more eco-friendly option and choose to ride a bike. However there’s an extra choice available, you could book a taxi using a private taxi hire company in Reading.

3 Reasons Why You Should Choose To Travel Via Taxi

If you are unsure what method of transportation is right for you for your next event in Reading, here’s a quick list of 3 reasons why you should decide to book a taxi with Loddon Cars.

  1. Relax And Have A Drink
    If you want to go out with friends and enjoy some local bars or bars in a new area, you don’t have to be concerned about nominating a designated driver and one member of the group missing out on the fun. Instead if you choose to book a taxi to take you to and from the event/bar, you and your friends can responsibly enjoy a few drinks together.

    In a previous blog we discussed the risks and consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol. If caught driving over the legal limit (35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland) you could face a minimum 12 month driving ban, up to 6 months in prison, and a criminal record. Such a conviction could result in job loss, increase car insurance, and difficulty gaining entrance into countries such as the United States. A single alcoholic beverage could put you over the legal limit; it’s not worth the risk, don’t drink and drive, hire a taxi in Reading instead.
  1. In A New Area? Don’t Get Lost
    If you’re in a new area, it can be very easy to get lost whilst trying to figure out where to go. For example, if you’re in a new city and you need to check in at a hotel, you might be confused as to where your hotel is located and what bus you would need to catch in order to get to your hotel.

    Instead of facing the possibility of getting lost and needing to ask for directions, if you choose to book a taxi in Reading, a skilled and talented taxi driver will take care of your transportation needs. Additionally, if you’re new to the Reading area, our fantastic Reading taxi app will help you save time whilst organising your lift. Our app will keep you up-to-date with notifications regarding the taxi’s estimated time of arrival, when you will arrive at your destination and you’ll be able to securely pay with your credit/debit card.

  1. A High Level Of Service
    What happens if the designated driver wants to go home early, or if the public transport timetable forces you to cut your evening short? This could be problematic for plans you and your friends have made. However, if you choose to travel with a well-established taxi company, you can except to receive a high standard of service.

    Indeed, with a reliable taxi driver from a well-established taxi business, you can enjoy peace of mind in the knowledge that your taxi will arrive on time at the location you booked it.
