Anyone visiting the region will be glad to know that there is no shortage of taxis in Cambridgeshire. There is a rank directly outside Cambridge train station and they will take you into the city centre for around £6 (€9) depending on exactly where you want to go.

Taxis aren’t advised for travelling between the major cities such as Cambridge and Peterborough as this could get expensive. It’s also unnecessary as there is a good rail network between all the cities. All taxis in Cambridgeshire operate on a meter system where you pay a set price per mile you travel. Some taxi companies will offer you a fixed fare, for example to an airport where the distance is known beforehand but this usually needs to be agreed in advance. Most taxis also add on a supplement for extra passengers, and for travelling at certain times of the day so if you wonder why the meter is on a fee before you have gone anywhere that is probably the reason. The final thing to note is that as in most countries, Cambridgeshire county council operate a licensing scheme for their drivers. This should be clearly displayed on the back of the taxi and there should also be a picture ID badge with the driver. If these are not displayed clearly , or the driver will not show them to you our advice is to get out of the taxi and wait for the next one.
