Please note that, for insurance purposes, all private hire services must be prebooked through the company prior to travelling in the vehicle.

Do not flag down private hire vehicles unless you have booked them, as you will not be covered under insurance. This can also give rise to bogus taxi drivers, putting your personal safety at risk. Be safe and book with Street Cars!
