Transparency and trust has to be the core values at Linlithgow Airport taxis . Forming a long term relationship with our customers is much more beneficial to the company than a short term strategy. As a result we have designed so many ways a customer would pay less while getting the same service. .
Our rates are £1.85 per mile. This rate is for any customer that asks for a taxi in the daytime , which is 6 am to 9 pm . But any customer who is proactive enough to book city or airport transfer at least 3 hours in advance would be rewarded with up to 20 % discount from the meter rate . This means if a customer books a taxi/ transportation service a minimum of 3 hours before the actual delivery of service he /she would be riding at a discount rate .
At the start of the trip when the driver pushes the button, the taxi meter starts counting from £2.00 . The customer might ask: what is this£2.00 , we have not started moving yet? It is called a Flag drop rate. It is common to any taxi company. This is what the customer pays if he/she travels less than a block (for example) and changes mind and decide to get off the cab. Then after, at every additional mile travelled the£1.85 per mile rate applies.
There is one more thing. A taxi meter fare calculation is a function of two parameters. Distance and time. So far we have been talking about the distance aspect. But time factor is also built in to the meter.
One can see how much difficult it is to know the exact cost of a taxi ride in advance because even if it is possible to know the distance a customer might travel using tools like Google maps( using pick up and drop off address) , we do not know the cost of the traffic delay.
