Border fees also apply if you are driving outside the town, ask again in advance. Please ask in case you are travelling outside the town. The world' s largest specialist on-line taxis association, Info Taxi, publicizes not only the Glasgow taxis operating in the region (black taxis, limousines and privately owned landlords), but also the people' attitudes and ideas about the service they use.
The city' s taxis will usually be waiting for individual travellers to open their gates and/or visit a hotel for added safety. Glasgow International is the best place to call a TOA from the arrivals hall if you are traveling to Glasgow city center.

Call before you pick up your baggage from the roundabout, as the services are usually quite fast, and they will tell you where the cab stops in front of the terminals to pick you up. There are also a number of taxis in the cities - Glasgow Central, Queen Street and Buchanan bus stops are always a good choice.
The West End has a tier on Byres Road directly in front of Hillhead Subway Stop. Obtaining a cab in Glasgow is usually quite simple, except around midnight on weekends, when the many downtown night clubs are closing - you'll find it hard to find a free cab on the roads, and the queues can be long in the rows.
Privately owned landlords are regular automobiles (sometimes with a taxisign on the roof) that have to show taxis. As a rule, these taxis are less expensive, but must be ordered in advanced. You can find numbers in your telephone directory or directory.
Many of these taxis do not have apparent metres you can see and which you will calculate over the distances - but don't be shy to ask in anticipation for a approximate price estimation. Privately owned landlords pay a flat fee to/from the airports. For your information - usually cab riders get tips from taxidrivers unless there was a problem - whether it's a lower price than it normally is to round it up to the next lb is okay, and if you've travelled a little further, a few lbs is all you need to tip.
