Find a taxi or minicab

London's famous taxis (black cabs) can be:

  • Booked in advance - by phone, app or website
  • Hailed on the street (when the yellow light is showing)
  • Picked up from designated taxi ranks

Minicabs can only be booked in advance. Private hire vehicles (minicabs) must be booked in advance through a licensed private hire operator.

Use our Find a local minicab search form.

Terms and conditions

There is a charge when booking by phone, and other terms and conditions may vary, so please check when booking.
