Many people take a taxi to see the show as it is easier than driving and parking up yourself.

SHA Welcome New Anthem of The Seas Cruise Liner to City

The Southampton Hackney Association (SHA) welcome the latest Royal Caribbean Cruise Liner, The Anthem of The Seas.
Southampton Port will run an inaugural season of cruises to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and Northern Europe.
This is the third largest cruise ship in the World, and Godmother of the ship is 27 year old British Travel Agent Emma Wilby. Giving a ship a Godmother is a long held maritime tradition. The Godmother's role is to officially christen the vessel, and in Emma's case she will also sing a special song for VIPs at the ship’s inaugural ceremony on 20th April 2015 in Southampton.
If you will be sailing on The Anthem of The Seas and would like to pre-book a taxi to take you to or from Southampton's cruise terminal, to or from one of the UK's airports or for a tour of historic sites of interest, click here to make an enquiry with a Southampton Hackney Association member driver.

Southampton Taxis = Summer Trips out!

Looking for things to do over the Summer holidays, and an easy way to get there?  

Why not approach one of Southampton's taxi drivers (in the white licensed cabs at taxi ranks around the city) and ask for a quote to be taken to Paultons Park or Marwell Zoo and other summer school holiday attractions?

Often it can be cheaper to take a taxi than public transport, when there are several of you sharing the ride.  Plus of course there is no waiting for buses or trains. With a taxi you go door-to door!

Mothers Day Taxis!

This year Mothers Day falls on Sunday March 10th, why not use one of Southampton's white licensed taxis to take your Mum out?  

A trip to The New Forest or even just within the city to a restaurant, theatre or museum is all the better when you travel in style and don't have to worry about driving!

The white licensed taxis of Southampton include larger MPVs, traditional white London cabs and up to the minute saloons, meaning that everyone can be catered for whether you are a wheel chair user, a large group or if it is just the two of you.

To make it even easier, you can hop into a white taxi at one of Southampton's taxi ranks or by hailing one at the roadside.
