In the taxi trade of today, a reliable and efficient taxi is the running source to a driver’s livelihood. Therefore, finding a taxi that’s enjoyable to drive and caters to both you and your passengers’ needs is essential.
Tourneo Custom Ticks all Boxes
The versatile Ford Tourneo Custom has become a firm favourite in the taxi trade. With a luxurious and roomy interior that provides seating for driver plus eight passengers in superb comfort, Tourneo ticks all the boxes.
We caught up with Bristol taxi driver, Peter Bickford, who purchased his Tourneo in May this year.
Peter commented: “I’ve been in the taxi trade for around five years now. I cover the Bristol area, doing city runs alongside airport pick-ups and that links me to the cruise terminals. I also work closely with a local engineering company taxiing directors of the business to and from their weekly board meetings in the city.”
When Peter decided it was time for a new and improved taxi, he turned to Cab Direct. After speaking with south west area sales manager, Chris, the decision was made that the Ford Tourneo Custom Titanium was the perfect choice for him.
“The Tourneo has been great! Good value for money and well equipped.”
The high-specification Titanium model includes features such as 17″ alloy wheels, DAB radio, cruise control, air conditioning and multi-function display screen. Powered by Ford’s latest generation EcoBlue diesel engine, Tourneo allows a smooth operating driver experience every time. While the cavernous 922 litre boot makes it one of the most spacious vehicles on the road.
Peter said: “The Tourneo has been great! Good value for money and well equipped. With such busy days ahead of me, I needed a reliable vehicle that would allow me to carry out my pickups on schedule. The layout inside is great in terms of access and space for passengers and luggage.
Safe and Smart
“One of the best features has got to be the parking sensors – they make my life so much easier!”
When it comes to safety for you and your passengers, Tourneo has it all covered. Add Electronic Stability Programme with Emergency Brake Assist, Roll Stability Control and front and rear parking sensors to an impressive list of smart technology and it’s no wonder Tourneo has been awarded a 5-star rating by Euro NCAP.

Chuffed with his new cab and pleased with the service provided, Peter added: “Chris was very helpful from beginning to end, keeping me informed the whole way, with the transaction going through very smoothly. I would definitely recommend the Tourneo and Cab Direct to my friends in the taxi trade.”
