Our Philosophy


Our Philosophy

Here at Ryde Taxis we take our corporate work very seriously, and have introduced a new ‘fixed price scheme’. In these times of belt-tightening we recognise that every penny saved is of benefit to your business, and we are confident that we will save you a MINIMUM of 10% off of your current taxi costs on the Isle of Wight.

Our unique price structure is not only financially attractive, it is also established that no two journeys the same will ever vary in price. You will also know the cost of your journey before you travel with us.

We continue to set trends in our industry, with a fully computerised booking system, as well as credit card machines in many of our vehicles*.Or one call to our office and we can take a payment over the phone.

 * A 10% surcharge is added to all credit/debit card transactions
