MASS TRANSPORT AND TRANSPORTATION IN UK - TAXI

Taxi: In England, at normal times, streets are full of taxis. However, you can never find a taxi whenever it rains, if you have an important appointment or if you are stuck with a suitcase on the street. There are two types of taxis in the UK. The first is licensed taxis and the others are minicabs. All taxis need to register with the municipality and get a taxi plate. Minicabs are not obliged to obtain a license. But many have licenses. According to the passengers, the difference between a taxi and a minicab can be taken from the street, and you can only call the minicab by phone. The vast majority of taxi companies also have special services. For example, they provide chauffeur service for weddings and touristic trips. Long-term contracts can also be made with taxis, for example, you can hire a taxi to bring your children to school every day. Taxi and minicab stations are available 24 hours a day and vehicles are under control with radios. Taxis charge extra for every extra passenger and luggage. After 20.00 in the evening, taxi fares are higher at night, on public holidays and on weekends. Taxi from Heathrow airport to central London is around £ 45. London also has luxurious taxis with leather seats and telephones. You can tip the taxi drivers 10% if you wish. Licensed taxis in the UK can only carry passengers within the boundaries of the licensed region. For example, a taxi driver working in London's metropolitan area may refuse to take you to Heathrow airport, 32 km away.

Generally, all taxi drivers serve within a radius of 10 km. Taxis must have a warning leaflet showing the fare tariffs and extra charges. Minicabs do not have taximeters. If you are going to travel with minicabs, we recommend that you make an agreement with the taxi driver before you start your journey. Minicabs cannot take customers from the streets. Licensed taxis and minicabs are insured. Insurance is not provided to unlicensed minicabs. In London, minicabs are not required to be licensed. For this reason, minicabs generally do not have insurance. You can learn Minicab stations in your area from your phone book. The London Underground has 24-hour minicab services. These minicabs provide transportation from the subway to your home for a flat fee of £ 2.5. There are also pirate taxis in the UK. These are the drivers who use their personal vehicles for commercial purposes. Pirate taxis operate at airports and train stations. Since these taxis are not licensed, the passengers they carry do not have insurance coverage.
