Taxis and rental cars are both good ways to get around while visiting Coventry. However, taxis tend to be better around the city center area (along with the free park and ride service), while rental cars are good for exploring areas outside of the city.

            Taxis are a good way to get around the immediate city center of Coventry, as fares around this area are fairly reasonable. However, if planning on taking cab rides to distant places, be prepared to pay a large fare. Taxis are readily available in the city of Coventry, and can generally be found at major public areas such as the train station, around large hotels, and at the three official taxi ranks. Although there are numerous Taxi Companies Based in the City, it is recommended to call one of the companies ahead of time to arrange for a pickup. For basic taxis, fares are determined by the government, based on the meter, and are standard for all companies. 

            Although driving is not recommended in the city center (the free park and ride and bus system is ideal for getting around this area), it is a great way to see the region surrounding Coventry. Visitors from other countries should read over this Driving in England page before deciding to get behind the wheel of a car. There are numerous Rental Car Companies that have locations around Coventry .
