Book an Oxford taxi for your Christmas party

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

The Christmas party season is on its way and the excitement is already starting to build, with many companies having booked their Christmas function months ago and December fast approaching. You might be working out what to wear, what looks good on the menu, and where you might be going for pre- and post-drinks, but have you worked out how to get home? The last thing you want to be doing is roaming the streets looking for a cab home at 4am on a cold dark night, so make sure you book an Oxford Taxi to get you home safely.

Make 001 Oxford Taxis your designated driver

If you think you might drive rather than drink on some occasions during the Christmas party season that’s a good idea – giving your body a break from alcohol is never a bad thing and you can ensure all your friends make it home OK. If you do decide that you might like a drink or two while you are designated driver make sure you stick to the legal drink/drive alcohol limit. The police are likely to be out with their breathalysing kits in the run-up to Christmas – more so than in any other month – so be careful if you do decide to have just one more drink before you hit the road.

As a rule of thumb, two pints of regular-strength lager or two small glasses of wine would put you over the limit, but it’s difficult to be 100% certain due to your gender, body mass and how quickly your body absorbs alcohol. It’s far safer to just book an Oxford taxi instead of taking a risk, getting caught and your driving licence being taken away – or far worse – you end up causing an accident.

The next day

Many of us feel worse for wear the morning after a Christmas party and it’s sometimes tempting to think we’re OK and just get in the car and make our way to work as usual. You could be over the legal limit many hours after your last drink however, even the next day. Sleep, coffee and cold showers will not sober you up, time is the only single way to get alcohol out of your system. Why not play it safe and book an Oxford taxi to get you and your colleagues to work the next day? It’s a far better option than being caught over the limit on the way to work and the implications that might have – you could even lose your job if your employer decides to let you go as a result.

One for the team
If you are an employer, or someone who is organising a work party, why not put some budget aside for making sure that everyone gets home safely without having to drive? It may cost less than you think. Your teams will appreciate the gesture and it will give them a chance to really let their hair down and party on into the night. Our Oxford taxi company can provide both cars and minibuses, helping to get all your employees home on the evening of the party and back into work on the morning after if necessary.
