More Information about Edinburgh
Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, and as such is a very busy city, especially in the summer when the Edinburgh Festival comes to town. Edinburgh has more than its fair share of tourists, as well as people who enjoy a good night's drinking on the town. Many people choose an Edinburgh taxi, whether they are touring the city or planning on a good night out. There is plenty to see in Edinburgh all the year round and our taxi drivers know the city better than most, whether you want a tour around the old town or you want to visit the main shops and bars in the new town.
Edinburgh Taxi has been serving the citizens of Edinburgh as well as guests to the city for quite some time and all our drivers are residents of the city and surrounding area. At festival time we get very busy because most of the buses will be full and there are so many people waiting to go and see the latest comics, interpretations of Shakespeare, and everything else that is new or popular in the British entertainment industry.
Edinburgh residents on their way to work will often use a taxi to avoid the crush on public transport and it is common for those on a shopping trip to take a taxi home with their purchases. At busy times many residents are happy for someone else to navigate the traffic when they are on their way to work and with low taxi fares, it is easy to just jump in and sit back on the journey to work.
Even though Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland you will still be surprised at the low cost of our taxis, especially when compared to the prices you would pay in London and other major British cities. Edinburgh Taxi are open for business 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so whether you need to catch a very early flight or you come out of a night club in the early hours, we are ready to make sure you arrive safely at your destination. You can pre-book your journey with Edinburgh Taxi or just give us a ring when you need a ride and we will get to you as soon as we can.
Edinburgh residents appreciate the comfort and cleanliness of our vehicles and the friendliness and helpful attitudes of the drivers. If you wish to hire a taxi to tour the city then you can be certain that the driver will have most of the information you need on the places that you visit. If you prefer to walk around the old town and then give us a call when you want to return to your accommodation we will come and pick you up and deliver you safely to your hotel or guest house. Our drivers know the local area and will always take the quickest and most convenient route from one location to another, so why not give us a call when you need transport around the city?
