Cherwell Cars was founded as X Cars in 1978 by David Randle and began operating from the Banbury Cross Rank. The company moved to offices George Street and changed its name to Cherwell Cars.

Cherwell Cars changed ownership and acquired the rights to the famous 5 5s phone number. Cherwell Cars became the first Banbury 24 hour private hire service in 1982. Over the next 15 years the company grew and grew despite competition from several private hire companies, and during this time became the first taxi company in Banbury to use a computerised booking system.

In 2008, the present owner ArsaIan Ahmed acquired the company from Taj Mohammad who had been the owner operator since 2003. Cherwell Cars is the longest serving taxi company in the area and we have achieved this longevity by priding ourselves on offering a professional, reliable, quality service.
