Belfast cabbie Walter Grieve receives his £500 prize from Cab Direct's Cathal Lagan

Surprise Bonus for Belfast Cabbie


Belfast cabbie Walter Grieve was surprised and delighted to find himself the latest winner in Cab Direct’s £500 cash prize giveaway. 

Walter had received the free entry cash prize in the post, filled in his details, returned the card and then, as is customary, forgotten all about it!  That is, until he was informed he was the winner! 

Ecstatic at hearing the news, Walter commented: “I’d like to thank Cab Direct so much for everything over the years.  This £500 prize is just the icing on the cake.  It’s amazing and will be a massive help towards buying the kids Christmas presents this year.”


A cabbie for over 30 years, Kevin has driven many vehicles in his time.  Previously a private hire driver, Walter was used to driving saloons.  However, when he became a hackney driver his vehicle of choice was the Peugeot E7 hackney taxi.

Having taken delivery of his cab in 2005, Walter remains more than happy with his original model E7.  He comments: “The E7 is a fantastic taxi.  The amount of space and the carrying capacity is phenomenal.  I love the EasyGlide™ under-floor ramp too.  It’s so handy and easy to use, it’s the best feature in my opinion.”

Reliability has also proved a big plus point for Walter.  He continues: “I’ve only ever had two issues with my E7 over the years and both were fixed under warranty no problem – you can’t say fairer than that.”

Top Spec

Designed and manufactured jointly by Peugeot and Cab Direct, reliability and performance are hallmarks of the E7’s success in the hard working UK taxi fleet.  Standard features such as the height adjustable driver’s seat, the EasySlide™ rear seat and the revolutionary EasyGlide™ pull out ramp combine with Peugeot’s legendary HDi diesel engine to make the E7 the perfect vehicle for the modern day driver.

Whilst delighted with his original model E7 taxi, Walter is full of praise for the new model.  He comments: “I’m not in the market for a new taxi at the minute as mine is still going strong.  But when I do change, new E7 will be top of my list.”

E7 Classic

Whilst new E7 has proved a huge success since its launch, Cab Direct’s tried and tested original model has remained hugely popular.  Cab Direct's exclusive, factory reconditioned version of the cab - known as the E7 Classic - has become a firm favourite with cab operators looking for a used taxi they can rely on.

With Peugeot’s much celebrated HDi 2.0 litre diesel engine, wheelchair access and bags of space, the E7 Classic is equipped with all you need in a modern day cab. 
If that’s not enough, every Classic taxi also comes with a ready calibrated taxi meter and a free delivery pack comprising floor mats, driver’s fleece and wind deflectors.  And all at an unbelievable price!

For added reassurance, each Classic is fully factory reconditioned, undergoing a 50 point quality inspection and repair and comes guaranteed to taxi test.  Add to this a two year unlimited mileage warranty and you have all the peace of mind you need.
