Taxis in Belfast

Belfast is a vibrant city with a lot on offer for its visitors. There is great shopping, lively nightlife and plenty of history to explore. The city has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or an action-packed holiday.

It is simple to move around Belfast using a taxi. You can hail a taxi on the street or go to one of the cab ranks strategically positioned around the city. Under a new licencing law, some taxis, depending on the license they have, will be barred from having roof signs and can only be pre-booked; that is to prevent hailing taxis that might be pre-booked. Whether a spontaneous choice or a pre-arranged trip, you can choose one of the many local taxi companies and enjoy a comfortable ride to the city’s popular attractions. Plus, you can secure an unbeatable flat rate and no hidden fees by pre-booking one of Welcome’s drivers.
