Taxi advertising is popular across the UK with a range of industries as a cost-effective and proven form of advertising.
Advertising your brand, product or service on, or in a taxi, allows you to cover a large area in terms of geographical location and it can also reach a mass audience of people in a short time. Taxis are a key part of the transport mix and are designed to be easily seen so that they can be hailed quickly and easily. Black cabs already stand out from other vehicles on the road due to their shape and size, but a taxi wrapped in an advertising message stands out even further from others in a rank, queue or just in traffic.
Quirky, eye-catching and popular, taxis are a great way to advertise brands, products and services and we can arrange taxi and black cab marketing to promote your business.

The term ‘Taxi Advertising’ primarily refers to wrapping the exterior of a taxi in an advert, to change its appearance and make it the transport equivalent of a driving billboard! The wrapping can take the form of just external advertising boards across the bonnet, doors or boot, or be a whole wrap that covers the car. Normally made of vinyl, these are printed with your advert specially designed on them and then applied directly across the paintwork and cut to allow the doors, windows, mirrors and all functions to still work.
When done correctly and creatively the results of taxi advertising is often a bold and eye-catching campaign that really makes the vehicle stand out amongst other vehicles.
Other taxi advertising options also include the use of posters on the back of the seats and on walls inside the taxis, as well as in-cab digital screen marketing where these are fitted on the back of seats. Newer taxi advertising options include the ability to directly send taxi users messages to their mobile devices (in 4G-capability vehicles) and the branding of receipts given by taxi drivers.
