If your pickup is from Colchester and the fare doesn’t exceed £17.50 usually no prepayment is required. There may be circumstances such as collecting from busy wedding venues, or transporting a teenager where parents are paying, that fall under the £17.50 bracket, where the controller may deem it necessary to secure a prepayment.
MCS reserves the right to request prepayment.

A child can only travel in a taxi or private hire vehicle without a child car seat if he or she sits in the back. Children older than three years old must use the car’s adult seat belt. Children under three should not use a seat belt.
In a taxi a baby/child can travel without a child seat however they must still be considered a passenger (allowing a seat for the baby/child) even if they will be sitting on the responsible adults lap.
We have many families who request a standard car for a family of 5 when they require a 5 passenger MPV. A baby or child must always be counted as a passenger for licensing and insurance purposes.
