I am using taxis and worried about costs

Depending on where you live, you might find yourself needing to use taxis sometimes or all the time to get to the hospital and home again. The costs can quickly add up and may be worrying you. Find out more below.

Or take a step back to explore other travel and parking issues..

How can I save money on taxis?

It may be that you could do one or more of the following to help reduce the cost of taxis.

It’s worth asking the hospital if they have a link with a taxi service that offers reduced fares for hospital patients. Or if you are using the same taxi firm on a regular basis, then it’s a good idea to ask them if they could offer a discount.

In some areas there are local volunteer services that may be able to offer lifts. You could try asking a member of staff on the unit - they will be used to these types of questions. If they don't know they may be able to suggest someone who might be able to help.
