When you go for a quote you will say you need insurance for private hire Where can I drive? Where can I pick-up? Its entirely up to you as long as you comply with local council rules Airports, special events There is a rank system for every airport, when you are first on the position you will get the first job You can check airport arrivals time so you can make an idea about the flux of people landing and from where!!!! You can check special events locations and time table by accessing different website like: www.timeout.com Basic strategy – when and where should I drive to maximize earnings? Work when is busy, which from 5am to 10 am or 10 pm-2am, if you can start from 5 am to 2pm , is more than enough Where to stay depends entirely on your knowledge about the city. Good Luck!!
