Re: Taxi to Manchester

Max are definitely the cheapest, it'll probably be around 30 quid. Although I've had the same issues as others with them being late and a couple of times the driver tried charging a higher price at the destination than was quoted on the phone, probably miscommunication but still not ideal.
