This week I picked a fare up from the Town Centre and took him into the nbext town and aksed him for the £6 fare. He paid it but started asking questions like.
That's extortionate, we`ve only just come up the road?
Is it a higher rate on a Sunday?
Why do you charge so much?
The fact that he said we had only just come up the road made me calculate the mileage to around just short of 4 miles. I explained this to him but he said it seemed like a few hundred yards.
The guy spoke with a broad irish accent and told me that where he came from that the same journey would cost him around 75 pence.
Is there any taxi firm out there that has a minimun rate this low?? speak up...
