Drivers Trek to Everest in aid of Irish Kidney Association

We are delighted to announce that we have picked the Irish Kidney Association as our charity partner for 2017.

Patrick Brown & his son Robert , both taxi drivers with NRC, will be completing a trek to the Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas in May this year. They will be with members of a party travelling under the umbrella of Earth’s Edge, an agency that specialises in organising such ventures.

They will be funding the trip themselves so all monies raised by way of sponsorship will be paid directly to the Irish Kidney Association.

In recent years Patrick has had a kidney removed so he is fundraising out of gratitude for his recovery and out of a sense of solidarity with people who find themselves in similar circumstances.

Both drivers and NRC have raised €1,110 for this very worthwhile cause.

Wishing the best of luck to our drivers Patrick & Robert Brown with this challenge!

Dublin Airport Taxis: Top 9 Tips & Pre-booking

As more and more carriers schedule their flight for a late night arrival or departure in the early hours of the morning, people are often left with not so many options to make their flight to or from Dublin Airport.

Pre-booking a taxi to Dublin Airport is the less stressful way to either getting to Dublin Airport without sleepy- driving at 4am (and pay a fortune for parking in the airport), or to get home as soon as possible without having to worry about a thing when you’re tired coming back from your holiday, short break or work trip.

In the above scenarios (and many more!) NRC has got you covered. If you’re not familiar with NRC, we’re an Irish-owned and run taxi company that specialises in getting customers wherever they need to be faster and cheaper than the competition. This is thanks to our fleet of over 900 taxis which are on standby ready to take your call 24 hours a day in and around the greater Dublin area.

We’ve been in the business for over 60 years so you can rest assured that our service is as fast and reliable as it needs to be!  

Below is a series of handy tips if you wish to seek a hassle-free trip to and from Dublin Airport.

If you are arriving to Dublin airport you can book your NRC Taxi in advance on www.nrc.ie. You can email your flight details to NRC and we’ll monitor your flight details so we’ll be there when your flight lands avoiding any delays!

  1. Can I pay by Laser/Credit Card?

Don’t worry about having cash – all our taxis have in-car chip and pin machines making it easier and more secure for you.

  1. Where will my NRC Taxi wait for my when I arrive at Dublin Airport?

Taxi ranks at Dublin Airport are located in the arrivals floor so if you pre-book a taxi your driver will be waiting at arrivals with a sign with your name!

  1. Corporate Airport Taxis

For the corporate traveller, most taxi companies provide executive cars offering the additional comfort after a long flight!

  1. Can rush hour traffic be a problem?

Peak traffic times in Dublin are from 7.30am – 9am and 5pm to 7pm so bear this in mind when booking your flight.

  1. Do I need to bring child seats for my kids?

No, but If you are travelling with children make sure to ask about child seats at time of booking so we can bring the correct seats for your family

  1. How long is the taxi journey to/from the airport?

The journey time into the city centre can vary from 40 minutes to 1 hour so make sure to factor this in when booking your flight!

  1. What if I have lots of luggage?

If you have a large amount of luggage or additional passengers make sure to book one of our shuttle buses or larger people carriers and we’ll have a large taxi ready for your journey.

  1. Is a taxi to the airport more convenient than a bus?

It can be. If there are 4 or more in your party it is probably cheaper to get a taxi than to get an airport bus. Why not travel in style and save money!!

Beat the bus strike chaos with NRC Taxis!

With Dublin Bus drivers on strike and causing chaos across the city we want to share a few hints and tips to help you get through the disruption hassle free.

  1. Rush hour is crazy busy – demand is up 60% from 7.30am – 9.30 am on strike days so it’s worth changing your travel times if you can
  2. More cars = more traffic – traffic chaos in Dublin! Journey times are longer – so make sure to leave earlier than usual
  3. Clever commuters pre-book their NRC Taxi: 40% more of you got organised in advance and pre-booked your morning NRC Taxi during the strike period. If you’re planning on pre-booking again though – do it quick as capacity is limited!
  4. Walk, run, cycle or car pool if you can as demand is high for taxis and the roads are blocked so use alternative means of transport if you can!

So fellow travellers good luck out there – keep these tips in mind and you’ll get to where you are going with as little hassle as possible!

Safe travels!
