"Black Taxi" Taxis Tip by Istana

Taxis, London: 37 reviews and 14 photos

When you took a Black Cab, remember to have some small pounds notes like a 2 pound note, a 5 pound note, etc or even a few 1 pound coin. Reason being that I got ripped off by a cab driver because the meter show 26 pounds but he charge me 30 pounds because he says he has no change. Well if he has no change, then may sure you do have the exact fare to pay him.

Another thing is that make sure your luggage do not have breakable items. This cab driver throw my luggage into the cab cabin as if nothing breakable is inside.

Another thing is to make sure you have the map location of where you are going to. Because if he did not know, he will set the meter going and then take out his map to check the location before driving, while the meter is running...
