Reasons To Get A Taxi To An Airport

Reasons To Get A Taxi To An Airport

The holiday season is finally here; it’s time to relax and forget about work worries! Reduce any holiday stresses and use an airport taxi in Cambridge to get you to the airport safely and in plenty of time for your flight. With friendly drivers and luxury cars, you’ll feel like your holiday is starting early!


You’ll Regret Driving Yourself

Driving to the airport yourself may seem like a good idea as it may be easier and you’ll have the comfort of your car when you return. However, driving to the airport is risky. It’s not always certain that you will get a car parking space which can cause a huge problem. Despite the vast amounts of security measures such as cameras, security patrols and high fencing, cars can still get broken into or even stolen.

Less Hassle

Taking a taxi will ease your mind while you’re on holiday. Your car can stay safely on your driveway awaiting your return. From leaving your car at home, it will mean that you won’t have the stress of having to look after your car keys while you’re on holiday. You also won’t have to organise parking in the airport; you can just turn up, check-in and fly away. If you’re travelling for business purposes, then a corporate taxi in Cambridge will offer you professional and organised travel.



Getting a taxi is a much safer option than driving yourself. Taking your car will seem more practical however it is also more dangerous. After a flight, in particular, long flights, you will be exhausted which lowers your reaction times and your cognitive functions. Driving in this state of mind is exceptionally dangerous and can result in accidents.


More Space

Taxis tend to be larger vehicles with vast amounts of room in the boot. This will allow there to be more space for you, your family and all of your luggage. The extra room will make you feel less squashed and on top of each other, allowing you to relax into holiday mode.



Driving your car to the airport may seem like the cheaper option as you don’t necessarily see where you’re spending money. Fuel costs quite a bit of money and driving to an airport can use up a significant amount of your fuel probably requiring you to fill up a least once during the journey. There are further costs related to driving your car as you will have to pay for a parking space which is very expensive. For a week of parking, it will cost you a minimum of around £80. Taxis are significantly cheaper!

5 Corporate Events You Will Need A Taxi Service For

5 Corporate Events You Will Need A Taxi Service For

Corporate events are either serious or a bit of fun. Conferences need to be taken seriously and dealt with most professionally. However, the office Christmas party is a time for you to relax and have fun. Corporate taxi in Cambridge wants to ensure that you get to your corporate event in the safest way possible without any hassle or delay.


Office Christmas Party

The office Christmas party is what gets most people through the year. It’s a time when everyone comes together and relaxes. There’s a positive morale and a sense of warmth and festivity. A Christmas party lowers the barrier of hierarchy and enables a stress-free atmosphere where everyone can enjoy themselves with the joy of Christmas.     


Team Building Days

Team building exercises are a good way to engage your staff with each other and take them out of the office environment. Doing team building activities builds a stronger relationship between employees and enables them to understand how they can work together more cooperatively and improve their standard of work. These exercises could be something such as an escape room. Or take your employees to an adventure centre such as Go Ape.        



Business conferences are popular and important business events. They determine certain corporate decisions that affect the business. Conferences often require one of the parties to travel either to the other’s office or both parties to meet at an impartial area. Our professional taxi service in Cambridge will give you a stress-free journey and get you to your destination in plenty of time.           


Networking Events

Networking helps businesses to reach out and connect with other companies. It is used as a personal marketing event to allow companies to build up their contacts and make their business stronger.     


Business Dinners

Companies tend to have large dinners to celebrate the end of the fiscal year. This enables employees to feel relaxed and appreciated for all their hard work. It’s essential to ensure that your employees feel appreciated as if they don’t they may not put as much effort into their work and start making mistakes.
