Taxi Ranks in Edinburgh: Skip the Queue

Everyone knows if you attempt to jump a taxi queue, you’re likely to receive a sour reaction. However, there are some totally acceptable ways to avoid standing in long taxi ranks in Edinburgh. Today we will share with you our tips on how to skip the queues.

Pre-book. Booking a cab rather than hailing, especially during busy periods, means you are less likely to end up at the tail end of a lengthy taxi queue. We offer a number of different options for pre-booking to make it as easy and convenient for you as possible. Book by phone, using the online system, the app or by email. Whether you order a cab with us weeks, days, hours or minutes before your intended journey, your vehicle will arrive promptly.

Amend your booking. If you’ve pre-booked a taxi but you then wish your vehicle to arrive earlier, later or at a different location, don’t cancel your order and risk ending up in a long taxi rank once you are ready to go. With Capital Cars you can amend your booking so that your cab arrives at a more convenient time or location. You can update your order via the app, online form or by giving us a quick call.

Talk to us. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff and drivers are always on hand to give you helpful information. Don’t hesitate to ask us if we expect it to be a busy day or night. Our team can give you advice and recommendations on the ways to minimise waiting time and avoid the cab queues.

Make sure you share these tips with your family and friends so they too can skip the queues!
