Children


We no longer provide child seats for use in our MiniCabs – however we are happy to use your own child seats providing they are fitted correctly. Should you be using the vehicle to go away via an airport or station we can store the seat for you at no charge – it can then be collected at your convenience or be in the vehicle ready for your return journey.

We are unable to guarantee vehicles that are ISOFIX compatible.

The law slightly differs for children and babies travelling in licensed MiniCab’s – here is a breakdown of the current legislation.

Children under 3 years old :
Front Seat – Correct child restraint MUST be used.
Rear Seat – Correct child restraint MUST be used. If one is not available in a licensed taxi or private hire vehicle, the child may travel unrestrained – we do not recommend this.

Children aged 3 and above, until they reach EITHER their 12th birthday OR 135cm in height :
Front Seat – Correct child restraint MUST be used.
Rear Seat – MUST use adult belt if the correct child restraint is not available in these scenarios: in a in a licensed taxi or private hire vehicle.

Child over 1.35 metres, or 12 to 13 years :
Front Seat – Seat belt MUST be worn if available.
Rear Seat – Seat belt MUST be worn if available.

Adult passengers (i.e. 14 years and over) :
Front Seat – Seat belt MUST be worn if available.
Rear Seat – Seat belt MUST be worn if available.

We recommend you always using the appropriate child seat and will help wherever possible to facilitate this.

Remember when calculating the number of passengers in a vehicle every child or baby counts – so 3 adults, 1 child and 1 baby would be 5 passengers.
