Safer Minicabs was founded in May 2009. We are fully licensed by Transport for London (licence number 07339) and we are bound by the rules and regulations set out by the licensing authority. Therefore, all minicab companies and drivers whom we work with are also fully licensed, preventing the sharing of your details with unlicensed minicabs firms and drivers.
In the first place we wanted to raise awareness of illegal minicabs and touting, but we soon came up with a plan to provide a single, convenient place to book minicabs. Safer Minicabs was developed to tackle illegal minicab operation and reduce the criminal activity associated with it.
After having a good night out, the last thing you want to spoil your evening is sorting out the journey home. Obtaining a minicab in the early hours of the morning can be hectic and chaotic. Pre-booking a minicab is an option, but it’s an inflexible option. Life would be so much easier if you could book a minicab as and when you wanted it and then guarantee it would turn up in the right place, at the right time, with the added peace of mind that you’re in safe hands.
Safer Minicabs allows you to does just that. Booking a minicab through the traditional method by phone call leaves you open to all kinds risks. Personal information, your name, address and phone number can be overheard by strangers, increasing your chances of becoming a victim of crime. This can’t happen if you use Safer Minicabs because your information is sent down a secure channel and is only released to a minicab company once you have confirmed your booking.
