Autumn is upon us, and with it comes longer nights, and colder weather. The last thing we want to worry about is how we’re going to get home this time of year, so it’s important to keep in mind the following do’s and don’ts when you need to get home safe.

DO use a taxi firm you know and trust.

With the night’s drawing in, it won’t be long before we’re met with darkness as we finish work. Rather than waiting in a darkened bus shelter or taxi rank, or even walking home, keeping the number of a trusted taxi firm will ensure that you get home quickly, and safely.

DO have your keys ready.

Whether you’re taking a bus or a taxi, make sure you have your keys in hand before you leave the car. Not only will this mean that you can get back in the warm quickly, but it is also much safer than fumbling around for your keys in the dark outside your home. It may be worth asking your taxi driver to hang around until you’re safely inside.

DON’T forget to factor in bad weather.

The autumn and winter seasons are filled with unpredictable weather, and this will inevitably have an impact on your travel time. Heavy wind and rain will not only lead to increased traffic on the roads, but it will also mean that more people will be booking taxi’s, so make sure to keep this in mind. If you know you’ll have to wait for your taxi to pick you up, wait inside your office, workplace, or any other warm and sheltered area.
