Travel
London with the Cabbies!
By: Justin   |    Posted on July 18, 2012   |   1 Comments (0) (0)

Taxicabs (or minicabs, can be used interchangeably) are one of the most common forms of local transportation while visiting London. Few citizens have personal cars, and most rely on either taxis or the subway to get around. Minicabs are the safest and most convenient way to travel the city, and can be relatively cheap too if you know what you're doing. There are several reason why some people will find taxicabs far more practical when in London, particularly those who visit. Here are a few reasons why a taxi could be your ideal transport in this city:

Like the Back of Their Hand:

London cabbies (cab drivers) and really all cabbies everywhere know their city inside out. They know the shortcuts and which areas to avoid at night or at rush hour. They are also ideal for tourists, as they need very little instruction and will understand exactly where you need to go, no matter how obscure the address. Best of all they will deliver you to the doorstep of your destination, not the general area (like a subway) so you don't have to hunt down the address. That is probably why most tourists book themselves a cab.


Availability:

Cabs are easily available all over London, and near Heathrow airport 24 hours a day which means good transportation is always at hand. This is why most people visiting London book a minicab. On call around the clock, minicabs are usually cheaper when booked and also safer (as you deal with the best companies in the region). Also a booked taxi means guaranteed service; the cab will pick you up from your place of stay at the designated hour. Most people book them online beforehand to get more choice and excellent deals. In London cab are literally clicks away.

Spruce up for work:

If you are visiting London for business, and want to give yourself that professional oomph, cabs might be perfect for you. Many businesses across the country use online booking services to make sure their employees are never late for meetings or appointments, and this can be a very cost effective method of transport for business users. Not only that, booking taxis to take you from one appointment to next will keep your schedule uncluttered and give you the punctuality professionalism requires.
