Swift Fox Cabs

One thing you should never do is take an unlicensed minicab. They are unchecked, uninsured and can potentially be very dangerous.

There’s also no reason for you to get in to an unlicensed taxi. We've partnered with a local taxi firm Swift Fox Cabs who provide a fixed rate campus taxi service to popular destinations.

If your journey isn't one of our fixed rate journeys, Swift Fox Cabs offer a 10% discount to students (just show your student ID).

Taxis are available from the Mayors Walk layby alongside the Percy Gee on club nights (like Lets Disko and Shabang!) - and you can book from our Swift Fox Booth in the O2 Academy Foyer, by the main doors.

Why not download the smartphone app, or save the number in your phone now, so you'll never be caught out:

0116 26 28 222

All drivers are CRB checked by the licensing authority at the Leicester City Council.

Safety first

  • Always pre-book your taxi
  • Wait in groups and in a well-lit area
  • If you have not requested a fixed fare at the time of booking, please ensure that the driver switches on the meter at the start of your journey
  • Always ask for a receipt

If you're not happy...

Email us with as much detail as possible. We will need your receipt number, date and time, destination and cab number, and  will follow up your complaint for you.
