Taxis and Private Hire companies serving Edinburgh area

Taxis, private hire, hotel and airport transfers, etc in Edinburgh ...

Taxis & Private hire companies may seem to offer the same services but there are distinct differences. Private hire companies are only allowed to pick up pre-booked customers whereas taxis can be hailed in the street. Below we display some of the taxi firms or private hire car services in the area although, with so many, it may not be an exhaustive list. For airport pick up or at stations, it may be cheaper to book in advance as taxis on the rank often have to pay a premium to pick up there whereas pre-booked taxis and private hire cars do not. Some also offer minibuses and chauffeur driven cars.
