Your local friendly taxi hire

For over 50 years Halton Taxis has operated a fleet of hackney cars and cabs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The front door has never closed and the phone lines have never been unmanned.

When you phone for a Taxi the booking details are dispatched automatically to the nearest vehicle to you for faster service.

We are always thinking of ways to improve and stay at the forefront of new technology, regularly upgrading our system to bring you new benefits, such as:

  • Pre-Booking - Going on holiday? Need a taxi at the same time every day, or at a certain time each week? We can pre-book your taxi so there’s no last minute panic booking one at the time. All we need to know is the location, date and time you want us to be there and we will be!
  • Speedy Booking - If you are ringing from a home number, you have the option ordering a taxi without speaking to a Dispatcher by pressing “1” and it will be dispatched to your location. Although for those who prefer the personal touch, pressing “0” will put you through to a member of our team.
  • GPS - All our vehicles have data terminals with GPS to ensure drivers know the quickest routes to you and your destination.
  • Ringback - Gone are the days when you had to wait outside in the cold for your taxi! When your taxi arrives to collect you, your phone will ring to let you know it has arrived.
  • Text with vehicle description - If you have called us from a mobile, you will receive a text when your taxi arrives with a full description of the vehicle and its registration to ensure you are safely getting into the right car to take you to your destination.


We have a number of wheelchair accessible cabs, dog friendly cabs, 7 seat cabs and male and lady drivers that can be specifically requested to ensure every client is completely comfortable on their journey. We also offer monthly accounts for businesses that require regular taxis and would prefer to receive monthly invoices.

We pride ourselves on providing a friendly, safe and efficient service, doing our best to take care of our clients, staff and drivers to maintain our hard earned reputation as Widnes’ best taxi service.
