Default taxi to airport in London

In message , Lola01

Hello ! for those who travel to london airport, I have an usefull
information. If any wants London Airport Taxi Cab Transfer Service than
they can try and they also provide
10% discount when you book online. I have used the company a couple of
times and they seem very helpful and cooperative. Thanks

This is NOT a TAXI service it is a Private Hire service. Claiming to be
a taxi service is mis-representation and, if. as you claim, you are
licensed by Transport for London, you may be reported for attempting to
mislead potential passengers with a question of being suitable people to
run such a business.

For those who don't know about such things, you will often find that
many PH companies will claim to be taxis, use drivers who have not taken
the extensive 'knowledge' test; do not have to take any additional
driving test; may in fact be driving without a UK driving licence and
frequently charge more than the metered taxi fare.

If you want to get a properly licensed taxi you can try using one of the
apps that are currently being introduced into the market. The two front
runners at the moment are HailO and Gettaxi - others are available. I
have no personal involvement with any of these companies.

Be safe, be really sure, use a driver who IS properly qualified, has
taken an additional driving test, can use bus lanes, and uses a purpose
built vehicle with a metered fare.
