“taxi accounts”

published 30/12/2000

very very good

you still have to pay

What is Cabcharge Cabcharge is a new way to pay for taxis. It is a account with all the normal home city benefits except the big difference is - it travels with you when you are away from home. TheCabcharge card eliminates the need to carry cash, is accepted by licensed taxis in cities around the...

Super

Cheaper by far.

Must book first.

This is a very interesting subject that is near to my heart but I am going to give you an alternative opinion from the viewpoint of the alternative option you have to the normal taxi we all know as the black cab, and that is the mini-cab. As far as I know London is the last place in the country...

“Not The Usual - Addison Lee”

published 14/12/2000

Good service

you only get good service sometimes

This was one fantastic cab equipped with GPS and a really smart looking cab driver that nearly had my heart in his hand by the end of the taxi ride. This mad journey lasted a mere 15 mins with the drivers excellent knowledge of the streets in London and with the help of high technology - Global...

“From A to B in comfort”

published 17/03/2008

quick way to travel around London

can be expensive

For those who have never been to London before the black taxi is something of an icon. Taxis have been transporting people around the capital for centuries and today there are around 23,000 taxis on the road. Travelling by taxi in London certainly isn't cheap, there is a minimum fare of £2.20 and...

very easy to find a cab

if you don't know where you're going you could be ...

If you've never been to London before, make sure you know the name of the streets and how to get there as my experience of London cabbies was not the one I've seen on TV where they know everything about everything. We ended up being charged £25.00 for a trip that we found out later should only...

“Black Taxis”

published 13/07/2000

Safest from of travel

they are often very busy

Black Taxis or Hackney Carriages as they are known within the trade, are the safest form of transport around London. When one has the "For Hire" sign lit up, flag it down and wait for it to stop. If it is an older vehicle, check that it has a licence plate from the Metropolitan Police on the back...

“Professional Drivers???”

published 04/08/2000

None

Aggressive, rude, dangerous

Why is it that taxi drivers consider themselves to be professional? I assume from their use of the term that we can define 'professional' as one of the following: Sloppy Inconsiderate Rude Ag gressive Dangerous A law unto themselves.... I realise that taxi drivers' earning are dependent upon them...

A new firm more or less newly established has hit the market with a boom, the name K.V. Cars, just like addison lee they are equiped with all the extras with the 'no frills' cost. The telephonists know who you are before you even utter a word, astounding service, really does surprise you as to how they get the information. Give them a try 020-7924 6666. If you dont believe me have a look for yourselves www.kvcars.co.uk
