    Website: Taxi Fare Calculator for the UK

    How does it work?

    Tell us where you are going from, and where you are going to. You can use addresses, villages, towns, cities, post codes or a combination. The more you can tell us, the more accurate we can be.
    What does it cost?

    Nothing. TaxiRoute is Free. No Signup. No Emails. No Credit Cards. No Spam. Just tell us where you are going.
    What happens then?

    TaxiRoute calculates what the fare should cost based on the Local Authority Hackney Carriage Tariff. TaxiRoute will then tell you a price, the mileage, the time as well as giving you a map, the shortest directions and a suggested taxi company.
    I have tested the site with a few journeys I know quite well. The routes seem as direct as they might be. I cannot tell if the quoted prices are reasonable [when I can't use the car it is the bus for me!]

    However they do seem to be in the ball park from what freinds have told me.

    I have done a few trips that I have been in a taxi and the prices seem about right. Handy tool to keep.

    Hmm,... It says the fare should be

    Taxi Fare: £32.94

    Distance: 22.18 miles

    Time: 46.9 minutes

    It costs me more than £65 for that route..
