Coventry is home to two exceptional Universities.
Coventry University is the UK’s third largest for annual student intake. It has been ranked 12th in the Country and was ranked top new university in the ‘complete university guide 2017’.
Warwick University is one of the original Russel Group Universities and is ranked 8th in the ‘complete university guide 2017’.
In term time these universities increase Coventry’s population by over 55,000, that’s over 1/6th of Coventry’s total population!
We think it is important that all these students feel safe in Coventry and feel it is their home.
It is daunting moving away from home for students and their parents.
We urge all parents and guardians to encourage all students to ensure they have the number of a good reputable local taxi company saved in their phones.
Alternatively all students can download our free app, giving them access to booking and real time tracking.
We also advise you to save the actual phone number should you have wifi/internet issues
Allens Taxis has been operating in Coventry since 1938, Coventry’s oldest taxi firm.
It is this history and experience that we hope will give you the peace of mind to know you are in safe hands.
We have a fleet of 150+ drivers, vetted and licenced by Coventry City Council.
Our office is based half a mile from the University in the heart of the student residential area.
Our phones are operated by real operators 24/7/365.
Too often young people, living away from home for the first time, ‘partying’ in unfamiliar territory without the safety net of a parent picking them up or waiting up for them, can find themselves in potentially unsafe situations, leaving them vulnerable. We want students to feel secure in the knowledge that when they ring us they are being transported by fully licenced drivers in fully inspected vehicles, operating legally & fully compliant with all of Coventry City Councils taxi licencing regulations.
We ensure all of this so that you don’t have to.
