Taxi fares

We set taxi fares for licensed taxi operators in Tandridge, who must follow certain rules. If you book or use a registered taxi:

  • The driver must wear an identity or licence badge issued by us, which will have a number and a photograph of the driver on it.
  • The driver must accept any hiring in the district, unless they have a reasonable excuse.
  • The meter must be started at the beginning of the journey; the meter should be clearly visible to passengers at all times.
  • Mileage rates must only be charged from point of pick up.

If the journey goes beyond the Tandridge district, the mileage rates below still apply unless you have agreed differently with the driver before your journey starts.

We do not set Private Hire fees; you should ask for these details and agree a fare when you book your journey.

Report a complaint online, by calling 01883 732775 or by writing to Tandridge Commercial Services, Warren Lane Depot, Hurst Green, Oxted, RH8 9DB. Please quote the taxi or driver’s badge number.

If you book a taxi please make sure you can pay the fare. Deliberately failing to pay a fare after a journey is a criminal offence.
