Extra charges

  • 50p - booking ahead e.g. by telephone

  • Payment by debit or credit card - Up to a maximum of 5% of the fare. This charge can be no higher than the costs incurred by the operator for taking payment by this method, or 5% of the fare whichever is the lower.

In addition, provision has been made for a supplementary booking charge to compensate for the cost of the outward journey for hires which commence 3 miles or more away from the taxi or taxi base (whichever is the nearer). The maximum charge shall be the actual cost at the tariff which applies at the time of travelling between the starting location of the taxi or the location of the taxi base (as the case may be) and the pick-up point or drop-off point, whichever is the closer to the taxi or taxi base.  This booking charge is in addition to the fare chargeable at the appropriate tariff for the journey from the pick-up point to the drop-off point. This charge may only be demanded if the customer is informed of the amount of the charge at the time of booking.

When a taxi (or a private hire car fitted with a taxi meter) is called but not used, a charge shall be allowed as if it had been occupied from the time it left the stance or garage.

Soiling charge

A maximum of £100 is to be paid by an offending passenger when a vehicle needs to be removed from service for cleaning in order to be restored to a usable state and condition.
