Airport Transfer

Our airport taxi hire service is both reliable and fast! We know that catching your flight on-time is non-negotiable and you can count on us to get you to the terminal with plenty of time to spare.

We’ve transported literally 1,000’s of people to Newcastle airport over the past 50 years and our service takes the hassle out of air travel. You can pre-book your taxi to the airport 3 months in advance and we also have Executive Car options available to ensure that you travel in style and luxury.

We’re also specialists at airport pick-ups. As soon as you arrive at the airport, our driver will be waiting at the terminal for you taking the stress out of travel.

School Runs

We know how difficult and stressful the school run taxi hire service can. You can save considerable time and hassle by using our School Run services. Our drivers are specially trained for the school run and have all been checked and verified to ensure that they can work with children. You can therefore trust us to take good care of your most valuable possession! We’ve been transporting children to schools throughout South Shields for over 50 years and we’re very grateful to continue to be serving the future generations around the north east.

We have flexible School Run options available depending on your individual need and we can create a special customized schedule for you.
We know the quickest routes to all the major schools throughout the north east and we always try to ensure that our driver is somebody local to your school to ensure the smoothest possible ride for the children. (if your based in South Shields, it’s probable that you or someone close to you might know one of our drivers and we will always try our best to give jobs to requested drivers, especially when it comes to school runs).
