The terms “We” and Worcester Taxi Company” is a reference to the Worcester Taxi Company, bearing registration address in 22 Arboretum Road, Worcester, WR1 1NB, registered in Worcestershire, UK, licensed by the Worcestershire City Council.

This will allow for sufficient buffer time in case there are any exigencies. Worcester Taxi Company will not be responsible if there are any delays, due to a lack of sufficient buffer time for the aforementioned reason. The recommended time for bookings within Worcester is 30 minutes. It is recommended that you increase this buffer time, depending on your requirement.
