How taxi fares differ in a 7 seater taxi
All the taxis including 7 and 8-seater taxis start with the same meter fare. On a 7 and 8-seater taxis the extras are for the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th passenger only.
For instance, let us assume that you picked up a taxi with your family from the train station in Carlisle. You are going to Botcherby avenue along with six family members. Out of these six family members 4 family members were over the age of 18.
5th family member was over the age of 17. The last family members age is 15 years. What should be your taxi fare?
If you travel between 7am – 11pm your taxi fare would be as follows.
Different types of tariffs
Tariff one – Approximately £5.50 + £0.5 extra. This is because you are using a 7-seater taxi. Apart from the 4-adult passenger, you have another passenger who is 17 years old. So, the extra rate of £0.50 is applicable for 17 years and above 4 adult passengers.
If there were only 4 passengers travelling at the same time then, it would have been £5.50. If you had travelled between 11 pm to 7 am, the tariff rate would have been £7.50 plus £0.50 which is £8.
