Where can I get a minicab?

It is technically illegal for a minicab to tout for business in the street, so you either have to phone-up and order one, or pop into a high-street minicab office.

Sometimes minicab drivers lurk around a busy place hoping to pick someone up. Our advice is this: unless you have ordered it yourself, don’t get into a car posing as a minicab – ever. You are basically stepping into a stranger’s car.

Minicab fares

Unlike black taxi cabs, minicabs rarely have a meter inside. It is therefore imperative that you negotiate a price with the minicab office before setting out, because you won’t have any way of knowing what it is. You should also reconfirm the price with the driver before he gets underway.
