Zebra Cabs

Because we are committed to your safety, our operators are educated about your welfare and experience; they are screened through a process which includes, PDP and criminal background checks; their behaviour is reviewed and we check their vehicle records throughout their time with us.

If you have used one of our operators before or have been referred to use a specific operator and have their details, you can arrange a trip directly with them.

Although our operators are equipped with the latest road-mapping technology - enabling them to get to you faster, their arrival depends on the time of day/week/year. Once you book your trip, it can take from 2-20 minutes to get to you. Our call centre will be in-touch after you have booked your trip to let you know exactly how far the nearest Zebra is to you.
