How does Freedom compare to other transport options?
Unlike other transport options such as buses or taxis, Freedom Drivers are more convenient and we pride ourselves on providing a personalised service at affordable and competitive prices – often less than the cost of a taxi. Whilst we get you from A to B like a taxi does – we provide so much more in terms of extra help.
