Established in 2006, Ecocabs is the largest company in south Northumberland providing taxis, people carriers, minibuses and mini coaches. We cover Hexham and the surrounding areas including towns such as Haltwhistle, Haydon Bridge, Prudhoe, Ponteland and Blanchland. This is on a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week basis.

We have an ongoing service available to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, including Newcastle Airport and Newcastle Central Station.

Eco-friendly taxis

Every vehicle in our fleet has been carefully chosen for its environmental credentials.  This ranges from class-leading fuel efficiency in our larger, diesel-engine vehicles to hybrid and fully-electric power in our taxis.

Our diesel vehicles are silver and our hybrid and electric vehicles are white. We are actively working towards a future where our whole fleet is white. Hybrid and electric power is starting to appear in larger and larger vehicles and we will continue investing in this technology.

We work hand in hand with many local hotels including Slaley Hall, Matfen Hall, Walwick Hall, The Beaumont in Hexham and the Lord Crewe at Blanchland.

As we’re based in the north of England, our taxis can cover the entire United Kingdom at competitive rates whilst providing top quality service and value.

Our fully trained, professional drivers are fully DBS checked and have extensive knowledge of the local Hexham area. They’re happy to help whether its with loading heavy shopping or luggage or would like details of local events and places of interest to visit.

Rely on our next-generation taxis

Since 2017, we’ve been introducing hybrid and electric vehicles into our fleet.  This next generation uses more advanced technologies. This enables us to maintain our strong environmentally-friendly credentials. We are phasing out our less efficient bio-diesel vehicles.

Our fleet of four-seater taxis largely relies on fuel-efficient Skoda Octavias and the hybrid Toyota Auris. With high levels of comfort, these cars are the workhorses of our ever expanding fleet. This means that you can look forward to a reliable and smooth journey.

With huge boots and plenty of leg room, these cars will accommodate four passengers and can easily swallow four suitcases. We can assure you that our taxis most certainly won’t limit your luggage capacity and legroom – although your airline might…

In addition, we have our luxury Mercedes E Class vehicles – ideal for your corporate travel arrangements. (For personal bookings please see our Wedding Services page).
