What is private hire?
Private hire is similar to a taxi service, as it is licensed and insured in the same way,
With the key difference being,
that a taxi can pick up passengers from a taxi rank without the passengers having to book in advance,
a private hire vehicle can’t do this and only pick up passengers who have pre-booked a journey.
This means we can get you to anywhere in Scotland
with the best value per person for groups of up to 8 passengers and longer distances.
Private mini-bus hire for individuals & groups of up to 8 passengers (best prices p.p. if you are in a group).
