Pratts first began operating in Durham in 1947. Pratts became part of the Phoenix Taxi group in 2016, which has over 30 years' experience of providing transport for people of the North East.

About Pratts

Pratts is a Durham-based private hire and taxi service with seventy years’ experience in County Durham. Our office is located close to Durham train station, and our cars operate throughout the city centre, the county, and the wider North East region.

We’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’re here to get you home after a night out in Durham or Newcastle city centre, get you to the train station or airport early in the morning, or for any other late night taxi needs you have. You can even prepay by card by booking online or through our smartphone app (Apple/Android) – so you can organise transport home without having to worry about unexpected costs, or having to carry enough cash to cover the cost of your journey.

Pratts Taxis are owned and operated by Phoenix Taxis. The terms and conditions of using Phoenix Taxis apply entirely to bookings made with Pratts Taxis, including bookings placed through all methods including phone, online booking app, and smartphone booking app. Please see here for full terms of use.
