Taxi fares

Private hire fares

The fare for private hire vehicle bookings should be agreed between the operator and passenger before the journey begins.

Hackney carriage fares

Hackney carriages are fitted with a meter, which shows the maximum fare payable at the end of your journey.

Taxis must, unless they have good cause, accept any hiring within the district.

For details on how much you will need to pay if you travel in a hackney carriage in the Vale of White Horse district then please see our tariff card.

Fares for journeys ending outside of the district should be negotiated with the driver before the start of the journey. 

Proposed new tariff

Our consultation on the new proposed tariff is now closed. We have received a number of objections so we are collating and reviewing the responses and will prepare a report so that the Cabinet can set the tariff on 30 September 2022.

We will also publish a report on the results of the consultation here when this is ready.

If you have any questions about the proposed tariff, please email licensing.unit@whitehorsedc.gov.uk or call 01235 422556 (you will need to leave a message with your name and number and an officer will call you back).
