Do I need to have an account with you to book a taxi?

No, you can book a taxi without an account.

Is the price per person?

No, the price you see is the total price.

I have a lot of luggage, will it fit?

If you’re not sure your luggage will fit in the vehicle you’ve selected, it probably won’t. The best option when booking with large amounts of luggage is to book the next available vehicle size up. For example, if you are booking a saloon, book an estate, If you are booking an estate book an 8 seater minibus. The price difference is often not that much greater and it will ensure you have a more comfortable ride. And remember, if you are booking a journey with a return you may have more luggage on the way home.
