The Admiral Collingwood

Posted by Greg Naylor on Friday, May 30, 2014,
Had our first pick up from the Admiral Collingwood today. It was a strange feeling when the customer asked to be picked up from the "Collingwood" as a few years have passed since we last picked up from there. 
 Anyway enough reminiscing, good luck to JD Wetherspoon and hope their investment draws more folk to Ilfracombe!

Quickest route from Central London to North Devon?

Posted by Greg Naylor on Friday, March 28, 2014,
We have a great number of customers asking us the quickest route from Central London to North Devon? Some think that travelling from Paddington to Exeter and then a taxi ride to North Devon is the fastest but it's much quicker if you depart at Tiverton Parkway. Mainly due to the 2 hour train from London Paddington to Tiverton Parkway and you save the time it would take to travel from Tiverton to Exeter. This coupled with the journey time in the taxi means you can make it from London to Ilfrac...

Who needs Ibiza?

Posted by Greg Naylor on Saturday, March 8, 2014,
Last summer we mentioned that we were transporting a film crew who were shooting in North Devon. Well the mystery is over, next Wednesday on BBC 3 at 9pm "who needs Ibiza" hits our screens. It's a 2 part documentary filmed at Europa Park. We can't wait to watch it!

Taxi to Hunters Inn?

Posted by Greg Naylor on Friday, February 28, 2014,
We had an enquiry today from a customer to who wanted to travel from Combe Martin to Hunters Inn. We had to explain that we are an Ilfracombe based company and we are more than happy to pick up out of town but we will have to do the job by Quotation. The result was a happy customer as he thought there was no way he was getting to Hunters Inn.

MS Prinsendam

Posted by Greg Naylor on Friday, January 10, 2014,
Heard some great news today and it's lifted the January blues. The Town Council has announced that the Cruise Ship MS Prinsendam is coming back Ilfracombe! Well it won't be back until the 26th July 2015 but we are sure it will be a boost to the local economy. P.s if there is anyone looking to book a taxi from the boat we are eagerly awaiting your calls.

2014

Posted by Greg Naylor on Thursday, January 2, 2014,
Happy New Year!!!
 Well 2014 has started without a bang! Very quiet but we always try to be optimistic at Ilfracombe Taxis and hope there will be a surge of callers wanting to escape the winter chills. Not a great deal to excite an Ilfracombe taxi driver during January, February and March. If all else fails the new Wetherspoons is due to open in April so it will be interesting to see what trade they bring in to town.

Lundy Island Taxi

Posted by Greg Naylor on Friday, November 15, 2013,
One of our recent customers mentioned that there was no use of mobile devices on Lundy Island and he began to panic about his taxi pick up in Ilfracombe Harbour. We mentioned that we have a system in place to deal with this in which the customer gives us a rough time of return and then contacts us as half way through their journey back and gives a more accurate pick up time...Simples!

Summer's here

Posted by Greg Naylor on Monday, July 8, 2013,
Summer has arrived and is now in full swing, spare a thought for us poor taxi drivers cooped up in our cars scared to use the air con due to fuel prices! With this in mind it's imperative we get inundated with calls which allows breeze (currently costs nothing) to flow through our cars, keeping divers happy. So don't delay call us today and keep a cabbie happy!

Quickest route from London to Ilfracombe

Posted by Greg Naylor on Tuesday, March 5, 2013,
Do you need to get from Ilfracombe to London in a rush? There is a very quick route if you get your train from Tiverton Parkway. A taxi from Ilfracombe to Tiverton takes 1 hour 15 mins and the train takes about 2 hours so that's a journey time of about 3.5 hours to central london.
