Private Hire & Special Events
No matter what the occasion, travel with a difference!
Rick the Tuk will be available for any type of pre-booked Private Hire. Basically it can be used and is licenced in exactly the same way as a taxi. So if you have a birthday, dinner date or special occasion to celebrate with family or friends then why not surprise them when you tell them that you have got the taxi covered, and the Tuk just turns up on the doorstep!
All Private Hire jobs are charged from the Tuk’s base in Upper Rissington, to your pick-up point and then onto your chosen venue. Up to 8 miles is charged at £50. Each additional mile or part mile will incur a cost of £4 (this mileage is calculated on AA route planner using the Upper Rissington Village Hall as its starting point however the Tuk Tuk may take a different more scenic route away from main roads so you can enjoy the beautiful countryside). So based on the Tuk leaving its base and your pick up point being on route to one of the following (examples of approximate costs are shown below).
Lords of the Manor Hotel - 5 miles £50
Cotswold Farm Park (Adams Farm) - 8.5 miles £54
Cotswold Wildlife Park - 10.2 miles £62
GWSR Toddington Steam Railway - 15 miles - £78
Just a few examples which should help you to work out the price for other destinations. The Tuk Tuk is licenced to carry 4 adults and 2 children (aged 4 - 17). But for your comfort the prices are based on a max of 5 persons with a minimum of one child in the party (aged 4 - 17). Please contact me if you require 4 adults and 2 children.
For a novel way to travel with your friends, these cost from as little as £30pp - get in touch for a quote!
