London taxi and minicab guide

 

London offers 2 types of taxi services, the black London taxis, also known as the London taxi and minicabs which are also called private hire vehicles.

The main differences between the two is that black london taxis are using a meter to price the ride while minicabs aren’t; Black london taxis can be hailed in the street or at designated taxi ranks while Private hire vehicles and minicabs must be booked in advance either online, at an office, by telephone or email.

Minicab companies are licensed and usually offer a cheaper alternative to the black cab as they do not operate a meter. While minicabs fares are generally reasonable, they are not on a meter, instead you should be quoted in advance while making the booking.

Any person who operates private hire vehicles in the London area must be licensed by Transport for London (TfL). By using a licensed operator passengers can have confidence that the driver and vehicle are also licensed by TfL.
