Established in the autumn of 2009, Getaway Cars opened its doors to the people of York with an ambition of offering a fairly priced, friendly, genuine – local taxi service.
We set out on our mission with a small fleet of hand picked, friendly and experienced local drivers, with the intention of establishing ourselves a reputation that reflected our aim. Having worked in the industry for a number of years, we understood that the key to building a strong relationship with our customers was based on honesty and in turn your trust in us.
Having kept this firmly in mind, we have established ourselves in York with a reputation to match our passion.
Throughout the years we have continued to evolve as a business, embracing the latest technology, working practices and providing community support whilst continuing to grow our office and driver teams and always ensuring that everyone involved continues to embrace our company ethos.

"We have used this company four times now over the last few days whilst visiting York, we would like to thank the courteous drivers, they were very very helpful and friendly and gave us loads of advice on local attractions. The fares were also very reasonable and the radio controllers were also very pleasant. First class service thank you. Visitors from Scotland."
"I'm a carer at wishing well care home and we use these drivers to escort our elderly gents/ladies who have dementia and some mobility problems to us and back home, I can honestly say they are fantastic with them, we recommend Getaway cars to all our new people, highly recommend them"
"Left my keys in the back of the car, man from the office was brilliant at locating the driver and the keys and making sure that I got them back ASAP. Always quick and friendly drivers, thanks"
"Fantastic service! Booked a 6 seater to transport lots of heavy equipment. The driver was lovely and very helpful!"
"After FirstYork proved themselves to be an utter failure of a company, Getaway managed to get me to work on time and cheered me up with a good chat. Didn't get the drivers name (picked me up from Sgt Peppers around 7:15am). Don't think I've ever tipped a taxi driver before today but he deserved it. Top notch."
"Ian aka call sign Oscar is the type of cab driver you wish you could always rely on as he is polite, knows the area but always goes the extra mile in terms of dropping you off as close as possible, helping with any bags, shopping etc and always has a nice chat with you. Have also used Drew aka call sign Wolf who is a real character with whom you can have a good natter whilst heading to your destination. Give them a go next time you need a cab!"
