Example only for a same day VISIT, A to B journey or day WALK:

 

  • Pick you up from A (i.e. where you live or stay)

 

  • Drive for 2.5 hours (in this example) from A to B

 

  • At B you have free time or a VISIT (a town, castle, whisky distillery, museum, attraction, event or similar at your own expense) or go for a WALK

 

After a few hours at the end of your VISIT Unicorn Tours picks you up again from B or meets you at the other end of your WALK ( & often I meet you half way into the walk, as I am parked at the far side of the trail, where your walking path ends. On a circular walk I might join you – please note there is no extras payable for those semi-guided same day walks –  this does applyfrom October to April)

  • From B we drive back for 2.5 hours (in this example) to A and drop you off there or anywhere else you choose/pre-arranged

We only charge for the driving time in this example = 2.5 hours from A to B + 2.5 hours from B back to A = 5 hours

5 hours in this example = half of the 10 hour standard daily rate

What is private hire?

Private hire is similar to a taxi service, as it is licensed and insured in the same way,

With the key difference being,

that a taxi can pick up passengers from a taxi rank without the passengers having to book in advance,

a private hire vehicle can’t do this and only pick up passengers who have pre-booked a journey.

 

This means we can get you to anywhere in Scotland, when you pre-book  contact@unicorntravel.co.uk07429251980
