Leading the way in taxi dispatch
We have invested over £500,000 in state of the art technology to ensure we have the most up to date, dynamic feet of vehicles on the coast.
Not only do we have a fully computerised booking system, we also give our jobs via secure data dispatch. Gone are the old ways of using radios where personal information is transmitted over the air. The only person who knows where you are going is the person who takes your call and your driver.
All of our cars are fitted with GPS so we can track them to within less than a metre of where they are at any given moment.

We normally have vehicles immediately available in areas such as North Shields, Tynemouth, Whitley Bay, Howdon, Wallsend and Newcastle. This enables us to get a car to you quickly, whatever your needs
How do we compare to black taxis?
We often get asked what is the difference between us and black (hackney carriage) taxis. The main difference is that black taxis can be flagged down in the street or park in taxi ranks. Private hire taxis must be pre-booked (normally through the telephone). There is on huge difference though - price again! The local council sets the rate the hackneys run on and it is substantially higher than our rates.
3 miles in our saloon cars before 10pm £5.20
3 mile in black taxi same time £5.80
3 miles in our saloon cars after 10pm £5.20
3 miles in black taxi same time £7.40
As you can see, substantial savings can be made using us, especially if you are a regular traveller!
