Taxis In The Festive Season – 3 Things To Keep In Mind

Are you organising an event this holiday season? We understand that for many, this is a stressful time of year, with already lots of plan and organise. So to lend a helping hand, here is a quick list of three tips to help you get your Christmas office party, or family gathering planned in advance, giving you plenty of time to plan and organise everything else.


1. Double Check The Date
To say that people get busy during the festive period is an understatement. After all, there's a reason why we're releasing a list of tips for the festive period months in advance; people will be busy, so good planning is essential.

As such, regardless of the event you're planning, you need to double check everyone's availability. Before you start booking everything, make sure everyone is available and everyone has agreed the date and the time.

2. Get An Accurate Headcount
Once you have an agreed date and time, it's important to get an accurate headcount, so make sure to keep a list of everyone who is attending and a list of who needs transportation. For example, with regards to booking a taxi for your event, you may be fine with one of the vehicles our standard class fleet, such as the VW Passat or the Honda Accord which both have room for four passengers, and has enough space for two large and two hand suitcases. On the other hand, if you need to organise transportation for a larger group of people, our fleet also includes brand new 6, 7, and 8 seat MPVs which are immaculately well-kept, fitted with air-conditioning, satellite navigation systems, and full leather interior to ensure your maximum comfort.


3. Book Everything Early
The saying, 'book early to avoid disappointment' rings true, especially in the festive season. Lots of people will be organising numerous different events, so it's essential that you get your bookings in as early as possible. If you're having a Christmas meal with colleagues as an office party, make sure you make your reservation and transport bookings as early as possible to avoid confusion and to minimise the risk of somebody forgetting. After all, you wouldn't want to be in the position when the minibus arrives, drops everyone off at the restaurant, only to remember you forgot to make a reservation and there's no tables free because lots of other businesses are enjoying a Christmas meal with the co-workers.

If you're concerned about the difficulty of booking a taxi in advance, don't worry because booking is simple with Loddon Cars. We provide a diverse selection of different booking options, so you can choose the method that's most convenient for you. In addition to booking 'the old fashioned way' by calling our team, you can also book using our online portal or our state-of-the-art app booking system .
