Did you know Newcastle Council set our taxi rates and we have not had a fare increase since September 2013. Surprised?
We will NEVER price surge unlike Uber. We only have 2 tariffs and don't increase fares over Bank Holiday periods.
Most taxi drivers now accept Visa, Mastercard, Apple and Android pay. Just look out for the stickers on the vehicle.
All drivers have passed a locality test and are DBS checked. Vehicles are checked every 6 months by Newcastle Council. .
All our drivers are self-employed. We are classed as "sole traders". We pay UK tax to HMRC & contribute into the UK System.
All drivers have passed a DBS check. The Disclosure and Barring Service will check for any driver criminal records etc.
All drivers have passed a locality test unlike a huge percentage of Private Hire Uber drivers. See below for more info.

Did you know that once the Uber passenger app is installed on your mobile phone you agreed to permissions. These permissions allow Uber to use your camera, microphone, to search your contact details, read your SMS messages, check your storage and much more.
In 2016 Uber changed their terms and conditions. Please read here.
You may have agreed that Uber can now access your SMS messages. You are advised to check with the permissions you have agreed too. If you're unhappy with this you should uninstall the app.
Reddit user "constituent" made users aware in 2017 that Uber want access to your bookmarks, web history, and running apps. See the thread here. Why do they need this information?
They also ask for camera permissions, storage access, & location . If you want to protect your privacy please look at the permissions you are giving Uber and decide if you are happy giving this away for free. What permissions do you give to a Cabbie? None!
