Choosing Good Taxi Hire Companies in Gatwick

If you’re a regular user of taxis in Gatwick, Crawley or the surrounding local area, you may have heard of Roadrunners already. We’re a reputable taxi hire company made up of trusted travel partners from in and around Gatwick. Booking cabs with a discerning service provider should be a priority for all passengers.


Here, we listed some of the attributes you should be looking for when booking taxis in Gatwick. Take a read through then make your next booking with us to see how we measure up. We firmly believe you won’t find another taxi hire company anywhere in the Gatwick area that makes customer care as big a priority as we do.


1. Check to see if the taxi hire company you are considering has good online ratings, or ask friends for reviews if they have used cabs from the company before. Find out if:

  • Their taxis in Gatwick showed up on time
  • The driver was polite, courteous and drove safely
  • The taxi hire vehicle was clean with working locks and belts
  • The driver knew the Gatwick area and took the correct route


2. Ensure you only use taxis in Gatwick with a driver who has his licence and personal information on display. Avoid unlicensed cabs at all costs for your own safety.


3. Make sure you use taxi hire companies who confirm their arrival by text message with a registration number or with drivers who come to greet you personally.


4. Trustworthy cabs will always be able to confirm the name of the person who made the booking and where your final destination from Gatwick will be.


5. If you need taxis in Gatwick for an airport transfer, choose a company that offers a set price and always arrives on time so you’re never late to the check-in desk. A good cab company also monitors arrival times for prompt airport pick-ups.


6. If you need cabs for business use, insist that your driver, or the company, provides you with a receipt. Unlicensed taxi hire companies usually refuse to do this.


7. Always order taxis in Gatwick by telephone or through the company website. If you’re on the move, get cabs from a taxi rank. Avoid hailing taxis to avoid unlicensed companies unless they are in known company colours with signage.
