Taxis are a desirable mode of transport due to their comfort and convenience, however, the ease of the ride can be turned into a big hassle if you don’t book the taxi carefully.


Here are some of the most common mistakes made when booking a taxi and how to avoid them.


Not Checking the Payment Methods

Not checking the accepted payment methods before booking a taxi is a common but frustrating mistake to make.


It is always important to check what payment method the taxi company accepts before booking a car so that you are completely prepared once you arrive at your destination.


Not Selecting the Right Car

Many people make the mistake of not checking what car they will be travelling in.


Travellers often choose the wrong vehicle for their party size and then realise they face issues such as insufficient space.


We have a wide range of taxi cars of all different sizes at Lewis Taxis to ensure that we can cater to parties of all different sizes.


Booking Last Minute

While you might be completely absorbed in the stress of last-minute holiday packing or the excitement of your best friend’s birthday party, it is always important to book your taxi as far in advance as possible.


The last thing you want on the day of your holiday is to find that there are no available taxis which could cause you to miss your flight. Taxis can get booked up quickly, so it is important to avoid booking your taxi last minute.


Not Asking About Hidden Charges

This is a big mistake which ends up burning a big hole in the pockets of some travellers. Lots of taxi drivers do not share the actual cost of their services with their passengers until they have arrived at their destination.


This is why you must remember to inquire about the hidden charges before booking the taxi.


Not Researching the Company

Not researching the company beforehand can be a costly mistake to make.


When you are on holiday, a taxi driver with poor customer service, late arrivals, and extortionate prices can ruin your travelling experience.


This is why it is important to research the taxi company beforehand; check the reviews, history, and the services they provide to ensure that you are choosing the right company.
