About us

We specialise in airport taxi and long distance cab service

Stanway Travel Services Ltd is a newly established  Limited company in Colchester who overtook Stanway Travel. Our new director worked closely for years with Stanway Travel.   Try to incorporate the traditional values of the old company  while  bringing modern changes that our customers would already be familiar from other companies.

We continuously upgrade and improve our fleet to make your journey more comfortable.

We would like to think that we stand out from other cab/taxi companies. We only do pre-booking, specialise in long distance and we do try to make your travel personal. We only work with a handful of drivers who you will get to know through you repeated travels with us.

To  us our customers  are important and  if you feel we could do anything at the time or in future to improve your travel to the air  or sea port, please let us know.

Why choose us? How are we different to other taxi companies?

We are different to most Colchester taxi companies in the way that we check all jobs coming up 24 hours in advance. Our office staff confirms driver availability and allocate pickups accordingly. We make sure that there will be a driver with a required type of vehicle there to take you to the airport. Automatic dispatch systems can just put your airport transfer in a queue with local taxi jobs and allocate it when or if a driver is available in your area. Most of the time the drivers can have an option to skip / decline the job. Some parts of our booking process is manual to reduce any risks.
