Taxis in London

Legendary Black Taxies of London
Who doesn't know about the legendary black taxies of London, popularly referred to as the "Hackney Carriage". Of course, not everybody can become a London cab driver. In order to become a cab driver in London, one has to undergo one of the world's toughest cab driver's exam - "The knowledge". As far as the geography of London city is concerned, the prospective driver has to be spot on.

If you hire a cab, it makes sense to share the cab with other fellow passengers.

That way the fare comes down dramatically. Please bear in mind the fact that the taxi fares are hiked after 8.p.m. All black taxies are metered and the prevailing flat rate is 2.00.
But, one must admit that fare calculation is a complex process.

Top-end Car Rentals at London
Apart from the black taxies, if you want a more exclusive mode of traveling in London, there are top-end car rental companies like Hertz, Avis, Europcar and Budget. They are not only reliable but also include insurance and taxes.
