Taxis & Uber

Taxis and Uber are a popular travel choice, espeically at Christmas. But be ware - fare will be significantly higher during the festive period, so be sure to check this before travelling and remember to book in advanace where possible! We can guarantee that you don't want to be stuck outside in the frezzing cold! 

 

We hope the above will help to prepare you for travel during the festivities!
