Unsure if you should book a taxi for your next trip? As an established Reading Cabs business with well over 20 years of experience working in the industry, it’s fair to say we know a thing or two about the advantages of taxi travel.

4 Advantages Of Travelling Via Cab In Reading

Ideal Mode Of Travel For Those In A New Area

We've all been there before, when you first arrive in a new area it can be very easy to lose your way when trying to find your hotel, or trying to find somewhere to eat. Whilst public transport can be very helpful, being left at the mercy of transport timetables in an unknown area can be very confusing and result in you very quickly getting lost.

So instead of risking the chance of getting lost whilst exploring Reading, or needing to ask a stranger for directions, our skilled and talented taxi drivers will be happy to take care of your transportation needs and help you get to your destination on time.

However, if you're in Reading for the first time, you don't have to be limited to a last minute Google search of “Taxis near me". With our Reading Taxi App, you'll be able to book a taxi from the comfort of your own phone. With our downloadable app and tracked vehicles, you'll be able to securely pay with your credit or debit card. Additionally, downloading our app will also enable you to save time when organising your lift, as you'll also receive up-to-date notifications on the taxi's estimated time of arrival.

Reliable Travel Arrangements; Great For Airport Travel

Flights can require you to be at the airport during the evening or the early hours of the morning, this means that in order to prevent driving whilst tired, alternative travel arrangements needs to be made. Some common alternatives are train or bus transportation, however public transport can be risky; trains and busses can suffer from serious delays with very short warning, or your travel plans could be hindered by industrial strike action.

It's also worth noting that in addition to the reliability found through travelling via a reputable taxi company, you'll be able to enjoy all the advantages of driving to the airport, but none of the disadvantages such as paying for parking, planning driving routes, and of course, finding parking spaces in complex airport car parks.

No Need For A Designated Driver

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.

One way to avoid drink driving situations is to organise a designated driver, somebody who will refrain from alcoholic beverages and be responsible for driving everyone home at the end of the night. However, instead of nominating somebody from your friendship group to miss out on the fun, you could instead choose to book a taxi to take you to and from the event/bar; that way you and your friends can responsibly enjoy a few drinks together, without needing to worry about transportation home.

Ensure You Receive High Standards Of Service

f you’re attending an extra special event, you want to make sure that everything feels extra special. For example, if you’re arranging a romantic evening with your partner, why not upgrade to an executive private taxi service? It’ll feel like you’re VIPs being chauffeured to the restaurant. For example, you could ride in the flagship of the BMW range, the BMW 7 Series. Equipped with extra legroom and climate control, this vehicle is ideal for those searching for a relaxing and comfortable ride.
