Premier Cabs is in my opinion the best taxi service in Blackpool. I would consider myself a pro when it comes to using taxis; before moving to Blackpool I knew most of the dispatchers and drivers by name and I would not hesitate to recommend Premier to residents and visitors alike.
Having lived here for over a year now, I have had the chance to try out various local taxi services and found some of them lacking. One of the other firms took my booking then after about 10 minutes called to say they had no taxis in my area. I booked through another company and found the driver to be somewhat abrupt. I have never had any such issues with Premier.
I have always found their pricing to be very reasonable both for short and long journeys. Their drivers have always been polite, friendly and very helpful and the waiting time always seems to be really short.
Just after I moved to Blackpool, I had to book a taxi and decided to try Premier for the first time. Not long after the driver moved off, I realised that I had to stop off at a shop. I mentioned this to the driver and said that I would go home then walk round to the shop and he told me that he would gladly stop at the shop for me to get what I needed then continue the journey. This surprised me, in the past I have found some drivers to be quite snippy when I have asked them to make an unscheduled stop.
As for the taxis themselves, they are all electric and so better for the environment, always a plus! I have never found any of the taxis used by Premier drivers dirty or even untidy and the same applies to the drivers.
