Is this just on the Wirral? If it is then it'll probably be cheaper to ring a Liverpool company and pay their tunnel fares!

1 settle 102.50 a week
2 insurance 98 a week
3 settle car 90 a week
4 fuel 155 a week

settle one is the hire of the radio from the taxi firm and the other is the car hire if you have not got your own car.so if you have your own car take 100 off,still bad

20p does not sound much but on a current minimum of 2.80 (for 1st 820 yds)it is about 7% so if other stuff went up by the same % we would not be happy.
